Default How is this for a sad case?

After spending 15 minutes shuffling cars and bike ready for the working days ahead I went to the beer fridge..f#$%,no beer. Well,move her Mazda3 to the street,move the Jeep to the street,push the bike out of the way and I am off in the XJ6 for the 1.8km round trip. Return home, park XJ6 in #1 spot,open beer,push bike back to its space,move Jeep off street,park Mazda 3 behind it. Done!
"Did you get wine while you were out?" Bugger!!
Well,collected the dog lead and killed two birds with on stone.
But,still I could have repeated he process for another 2 km drive.

That is what owning this car has done to me.

That is what I am going to do in a bit. Larder is stocked except for two important items.
Kibble for Coco and Beer for me!!!

Luckily, Each car is reasonably accessible. Jeep in the driveway and Jaguar in the garage.

Weed whacking 99.9 % done. Issues with whackers. electric cord just about two feet too short and gas critter stubborn to fire!!

Small engine flywheel pulled development in last stage. I'll give it a whack on the 1932 Roto Hoe today, mebbe!!
