Well we have one final day left to finish the preparation for the Phoenix. We have been working flat out the last few days, weeks even on so many things, the CG action and chassis systems continue at a fantastic pace and we will have some of our work on display at the stand along with the CG INCH actions. The delivery of Hogue overmolded grips has arrived at last and they do look good fitted so the option of Hogue or wooden grips will be available for all M75 and M66 chassis systems.
We have boxes of things all over the place, reloading consumables, shiny things, display stands, C2R, things to hold flyers, table coverings, rifle locks and a myriad of other items neatly labelled in piles, I can even see a glass jar for sweets.
Did I mention the sweet jar? Christel decided a jar of toffees on the stand would be nice and I certainly would not disagree so she ordered a few bags of toffees and similar things. I wandered through the kitchen a few days ago and spotted the jar with some sample toffees in so I grabbed one to sample. Now these things turned out to be rather hard and incredibly chewy so I bit down hard on the one I had and realised something had gone wrong. I had managed to snap a crown off, a front crown at that which is a bit of a disaster as it left me looking rather gappy and speaking with a lisp. Down the dentists next morning and he told me it was easily fixed, just stick a pin in and attach a new crown. Yebbut when?? Oh I can do it next week was his cheerful reply, he even wrote a note for the receptionist so she would give me an urgent appointment.
Silly dentist and I for assuming an appointment would exist, I was told very politely and very firmly it will be sometime next month before I can be seen. That was the ‘urgent’ appointment. So right now I am avoiding toffees and doing my best to keep my mouth closed and not put my tongue in the gap where the tooth was. At least it does not hurt. (Fingers crossed)
I have had a free Danish email account for the last dozen or so years, yes I have a Shooting SHED account and the obligatory Gmail one however my @inbound.dk account has been with me for ages. Yesterday it stopped working, Inbound was taken over many years ago and the domain eventually became part of Tiscali.dk so finding out what is wrong is all but impossible, especially as we are not even in Denmark. It has been down for 24 hours now and hopefully it will be back up very shortly however for those of you that email me via this account it may be worth sending the email again to my SHED account.
I feel lost without my inbound.dk account…
The weather looks for the most OK for the weekend so if you are at Bisley you have no exscuces for not coming and finding us at some point, it will be good to put faces to names.
