    Overcast here too. Was going to say it will save me dragging myself out of bed at some ridiculous hour, but I just looked at the clock and it's nearly time anyway.
    Overkill is still dead.

    I wondered why the local werewolf was out howling last night. She came back to bed though and was fine when I got up this morning.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Had a clear view but didn't end up taking any pictures cos it was in line with the street light from the back yard. Looked cool, but decided sleep was cooler so went back to bed.

    Well - F~~ck the F~~~king MEGA PINK F~~~cking BLUE whatever Moon !!!!
    I was pretty grumpy after 3 hours down at wharf pulling logs (some 10-15m x 800cm) out from against wharf ( shame I not had camera with me)
    Knackered - BUT - then see on News - Nelson - Hokitika etc are worse off
    I have NEVER seen tides so big this last 2-3 months - they are now coming over the Wharf walking planks :-(
    Bloody nightmare and erosion against embankment nearly driving me to City - God forbid

    All the wash off from Pine Blocks that have been logged up Pelorus and in Sound is getting to be a real pain - on the eye and hull/wharf/beach etc
    Have to leave in morning at 4am - think the Olight and Maxtoch be getting used as Headlights on da Boat on way into Gunsmoke - logs 20m+ a floating everywhere
