And here is the new half half units. Can you see the point of them yet?




DSCF0040, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Now in the shade position.




DSCF0038, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Now folded up. When not in use you see you can get at the roof catch easier.




DSCF0036, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Voila and the roof is open. magic.




DSCF0044, originally uploaded by nackuk.

And being as it wasn't raining I thought I'd take the time to deep clean the roof and then ultra proof it.




DSCF0047, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Which was all going quite well.




DSCF0046, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Until it start to rain about and hour and ahalf after I'd finished it and the proofer needs about four hours to dry. Sod it.

Saturday night I caught the Virgin Express to Brum




DSC00540, originally uploaded by nackuk.

As I got there in plenty of time for Matt's Brithday meal I walked throught the bustling German market looking at the overpriced tat for sale. I decide to go for a beer or 2 in the Shakespere before heading to Brindly place.




DSCF0004, originally uploaded by nackuk.

This was a mistake of course as when I wen tin the pub it wasn't raining but outside it was now tippping it down.




DSCF0006, originally uploaded by nackuk.

It reminided me that it had been some 12 months or more since my last rip to Brum on a night out which I never made it home from.




DSCF0017, originally uploaded by nackuk.

In the Bank I drank Morretti and scoffed food. Matt and Maddy seemed happy.




DSCF0024, originally uploaded by nackuk.

I met the long time not seen Gavin and Sprog.




DSCF0018, originally uploaded by nackuk.

And Trubbie and his wife to be.




DSCF0011, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Mean while Naguhty North picked his nose and flicked his boggies at passing people.




DSCF0012, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Apparently even I was having a good time.




DSCF0016, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Can you guess what Matt said next?




DSCF0003, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Before you knew it, it was time to make a dash back to the station. A quick one at that. And thankgod I managed to get there in time to catch the last train home. Out of practise at this.




DSCF0026, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Home sweet home I slung my cloths on the floor and hit the sack.ah ....

Don't you just love puctures? One new rear passenger side tyre later and £50 quid lighter is my wallet. In fact thats not a bad price as the 185 60 R14 tyre size seems to be hard to get nowa days and most places want £70 for one, like Chapel Ashes HiQ I normally go to. Got this just up the road from where I work Bannings. Cahp said theres not much call for this size nowa days. Well the car is 17 years old.

While I was off work ill the postman made my day with this lot.




DSCN0424, originally uploaded by nackuk.

I'm not sure why I brought these off ebay. But I'll try them out. They are half folder screen shades for the Eunos. Designed so that you don't have to move them to lower the top. Yep is it really worth it.? I know my brother brought some but never fitted his!




DSCN0427, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Iy green soft top is well turn alge green so I thought I better give it a good clean and then ultra proof it. I don't want to be gettig a wet head now do I. Sounds like a lot of work though.




DSCN0423, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Well I have brought Forrest Gump on Blue Ray. I wander when I get time or be in the mood to watch it. Not right now though.




DSCN0416, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Well I havn't brought this for cheating but more to see if I'm missing things out by going to fast (ohoh) through the areas. I've suddenly made up lots of lost ground in playing the game.




DSCN0421, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Mind once you open it up you suddenly think good god it is huge and is it worth even trying to complete. Anyway I do an area and then check if I've cocked up or if I've missed any items. I have at Ravens headl, I didn't pick up the bobble head which I was trying to get them all. Worse still you cannot go back to Ravens Head! Life goes on for some but not me.

Covens first night of its new beer festival. A few of us got togeather for this rather special night.



DSC00501, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Berady was nearly as ov erwhelmed by all this excitment as his Birthday last week.




DSC00506, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Good to see no qeue at the bar and plenty of bar staff.




DSC00522, originally uploaded by nackuk.

The band came on and once up the audience just wanted more and more and more. Yep they even got to do a long oncore latter.




DSC00528, originally uploaded by nackuk.

The lesser spotted andy Poade was out. And even though he lives one street away he didn't know these event was on! Now thats the kinda of person you want to send into a war zone.




DSC00504, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Greenie thinking of his belly as usual (think size of a cow te shirt folks) went and brought some grey peas. Oh yummy.





Eat them peas farmer Greenie.


DSC00532, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Andy's pose made me think what he was thinking.




DSC00533, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Then he went to the bar to chat up some lady.




DSC00505, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Like Poade everything on my beer listed scored highly. I even gave one of the beers a 9. Which oddly everyone else rated as 4. In fact on inspection my scores where pretty much the opposite to everyone elses.




DSC00536, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Well as the night came to a close Martin got himself a pork bap.




DSC00534, originally uploaded by nackuk.

And Greenie went up a corner to start dreaming about his farm.


DSC00499b, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Well they finaly gone and done it. Playstation 3 can now download movies for rent or buying.




DSC00537, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Although if I'm paying over a tenner I'd rather buy it in a case. It would appear if you rent a film you have 14 days to watch it and ince you have started to watch it you have 48 hours to watch it after which it is goodbye. A fiver to rent. Some are in HD most are not. Hey its a start but like my Music I still like a case and art work.

Well I ordered this from Tesco over a week ago. Obviusoly they havn't got there act togeather like amazon. Anyway this is my 3rd Blue Ray (and yes I own the DVD version of it). What can I say, the best visuals yet. A absolute gem of a picture to go with such a dramatic film. I'm pondering what I should try next. Perhaps Forrest Gump if I can find it at the right price.

DSC00498, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Ordered thesaed last Friday and they came on Tuesday from Amazon. And now with these two Only Fools and Horses DVD's I think my collection is complete. And so I sat down on the sofa for the night and had a dam good laugh.

Well Beardy is a year older and so we went out for Pizza at Wolverhamptons finest pizza establishment - Pizza Hut.




DSC00489, originally uploaded by nackuk.

We all drank Magners with ice to wash down the most beautiful of starters and




DSC00487, originally uploaded by nackuk.

pizza of course. I mean who the hell goes to pizza hut and then eats salad?




DSCN0330, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Following filling our bellies at Wolves finest Pizza Establishemnt we decided to wash down the colestrole with some anti colestro ale at Wolverhamptons finst Ale House the Possada. A bit quiet in there at first.




DSCN0331, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Made me realise just how low a place Wolverhampton had become at night. Soon we will all have to resort goingto Yatee's.




DSCN0341, originally uploaded by nackuk.

And with all that colestrole we had to make sure we drank plenty of ale.




DSC00493, originally uploaded by nackuk.

Having discussed Beard's responisbilites in life he goes on to say he's goingt o learn to drive. Eh?? where did that come from?




DSCN0344, originally uploaded by nackuk.

So Beardy have you had a winderfull birthday or not?




DSCN0359, originally uploaded by nackuk.
