Thought we would come here (Callendar) as there are a few shops that are interesting and get some food on the way home. Place is full of muddy runner types doing some sort of race. All the coffee shops are filled with damp and sweaty people so will visit a distillery a mile away. Just looking as I am driving.
Yesterday was an epic journey into the big city. First stop was a shopping mall on the outskirts. The assignment here was achieved and the location and purchase of vegetarian sausage and burger mixes was completed.
Next stop was a model shop. A shop that sells paints locally didn’t have what I want in stock so as we were nearby it was the best option. Their price is half what it is on Amazon but isn’t worth a 50 mile round trip to ‘save’ money. Apart from the paint they also had some models on sale. I have wanted to do a car for some time but not seen one that I really wanted and that I didn’t already have in 1/18th scale. The Mustang GT500 was 33% off so it was added to the stash. Also got a few other bits too. Whilst paying the salesperson and I discussed how far tiny pieces can fly across the room and the subsequent crawling around on the floor ritual. My wife was all That particular shop has been there ages. Whilst Amazon is convenient and is able to supply stuff you cannot get locally I always try and support local shops even if it means a slightly higher price.
The final assignment was Costco. That was relatively painless too though people can still be dicks when armed with a shopping trolley and few brain cells. My imagination never thought of strapping some C4 to my trolley, shoving it in to a cluster of the aisle blocking fools and remote detonating. Nope. Never thought about that!
So yesterday the forecast said rain. In fact every forecast said rain and lots of it. Wife: Howabout we go out. Me: OK. My wife is then surprised that it is raining. Absolutely chucking it down. What a waste of time.
Mustang was primed though - sort of tempted to leave it like that but it will be painted Deutsche Post yellow with black stripes. Best view though was having a lot of fun in BF before wifey needed help.
Today was exciting. Varnishing the inside of the front door. I was going to video it but that would be like watching paint dry.
So to save time here is an old video of mine (Which has over 3.8k views!)
