A block off the old chip

I have finally got off my backside,  dug the chip out of the camera and sorted the photographs thereon.
Not surprisingly, there were an awful lot of ‘before’ pictures of the innards of the boat’s engine bay showing where this wire went and that tube fitted for Hubby’s immediate reference after doing exploratory surgery in trying to find out how everything worked.

Stop! I am not knocking it! Far from it, as it made perfect sense to me.
But hidden amongst the nuts, bolts, wiring and bulkhead shots were the things I was looking for.

It’s Maggie’s birthday this week, and I wrote a post on it this time last year.
She is about to enter human double figures, but for her, she’s 70 (ish), so she deserves an extra mention…………. and current photos (taken at Christmas)!

In that aforementioned post, I wrote of the quarry and Hubby stopping her before she shot off the edge of some 35 foot drop.

This is it………… sorry it’s a bit fuzzy, but this was taken recently so is overgrown compared to that day, still you can just make out the end of the shaft at the top

and this was round the corner

Plucky little pup!


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Lovely photos of Maggie 🙂 And thank goodness she didn’t jump!

  2. I love Maggie! Have you ever heard of people doing the “Dogs on Thursday” posts?” Didn’t know if you were doing that or just a coincidence. 🙂 I love that you show pics of her often. 🙂
