REMEMBER, REMEMBER THE FIRST, THIRD & FIFTH OF NOV

As the rhyme tells us “remember, remember, the 5th of November etc” or Guy Fawkes and Bonfire night if you are a Brit. Well this year we have a few more memorable moments!!!

Today in the Mountains of Spain the Vuelta takes on Stage 12 which is a monstrous climb of the Angliru …… not something most people would choose to walk up!

Looks a bit like this if you are a cyclist with all its switchback turns

The last climb is the dreaded Angliru

ALTO-DE-L’ANGLIRU, SPAIN – NOVEMBER 01:

Everybody got their masks ?

Then we have our own USA “Gunpowder Treason and Plot” with the Election Saga where the Ego in Chief has pulled every shitty trick in the book leading up to the election and maybe some we don’t yet know about!

Yes, I’m referring to this Clown!

Remember, Book Early, Vote Early and please put an end to this power crazed loon! November 3rd

Let’s not forget to FALL BACK and it will be pitch black by 6 p.m.

Did you remember?

Almost there

Not sure how the UK will be dealing with “Guy Fawkes Night” with all the fireworks and bonfires amid a lockdown and pandemic?

Well at least it’s outside and 2 days after the US election 11/5

Today 11/3 we are hoping for a result which if nothing else will be the victory of truth over lies which are becoming impossible to deal with but the pathetic souls still believe him, but of course they are “very good people” even if they can’t spell or hold a gun correctly!

More incompleted crap from 2016

Of course he is Jeb

For your sake it better be a “left handed” model!!!

More “Very fine people”

I rest my case! education at an all time high! 

Perhaps the worst is yet to come with the Dictator demanding a result by nightfall. With all the crap over voter fraud and post in ballots, all created in his own mind, we know he will NOT GO QUIETLY!

While the Debacle continues, maybe for several days I will continue with the Chemo again this week.

Now on more pleasant tasks for me I’m still trying to mass together enough funds to acquire this one

It didn’t start out as No1 choice but I’ve somehow grown to like it more than some of its more colorful friends

But I really like it

With the Giant MTB sold that was a good start but then we had the “Cup Cake Bakery” Scam and the rub your nose in it very tempting check

If only it had been valid!

Well as I await news on the dear old Beemer which is still on Craig’s List and now on Auto Trader its time to sell off my last 2 shotguns which breaks my heart knowing that I will never be going pheasant shooting again which was always one of my chosen countryside sports. I’m sending them both down to Phoenix to South West Guns who sold off my last batch without too much hassle.

Top of the shop is my Beretta 627 EELL and perhaps the best fitting gun I have ever had. I bought it at a gun show in Phoenix about 2000 or 2001 and then sent it off to be multi-choked, cost at the time was around $5500 and I suppose if I can get $4000 I’ll be happy.

The perfect shotgun for me

Its actually a boxlock made to look like a sidelock

A very good looking gun

My No2 gun is a limited edition Heckler Koch Benelli Model 94, which is a pretty 5 shot automatic and I bought as a duck gun to go hunting  the same down in Argentina

Another good looker

Pretty, functional, and well built, but I think I might be in $1500-2000 bracket here even though it cost me around $3200

They both leave for Phoenix today so after yesterday’s bloodwork down to a local shop and buy a double gun case for the shipping, and they give me a cash deal which I think is worth it in view of the transit.

All packed up and ready to go

Having cleaned up my double bicycle rack which I subsequently discovered is made by Thule it was time to check it out, take all the required pictures and get that on Craig’s List

Neat and functional in the fold up position

Unobtrusive

Good design as you would expect from Thule

On the near side

On the back rack …… $220

Chemo Wednesday and pick up a NEW battery for the Beemer, no luck with this, but now time to start listing clothes on Craig’s List and EBay while the election blunders on with pundits on both sides claiming victory.

Friday11/5/Covid and Guy Fawkes Day/Night in the UK, lets see how well lockdown works? Still no election results, but getting ever closer, despite the despicable Clown’s attempts for recounts, stop the counting, lawyers trying even more shitty tricks to overturn results ….. it never ends and one has to ask the question why? You can’t insult everybody on a daily basis, belittle doctors and science, and blame everybody else for your ignorance and stupidity.

TONY DOWN

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One thought on “REMEMBER, REMEMBER THE FIRST, THIRD & FIFTH OF NOV”

  1. In the comic and in the film, “V” succeeds in blowing up the Houses of Parliament on 5 November (1997 in the comic, 2021 in the film). Its film adaptation opening shows a dramatised depiction of Fawkes’s arrest and execution, with Evey narrating the first lines of the poem of Guy Fawkes Night.
