I like to live on the edge of the danger zone.....it’s an exiting place to be
I find as long as I’m out of reach and ear shot, it’s usually okay.
She knows I’m only joking.....or she thinks I am.

I've disposed of my old bag and currently fettling with a new one  :D   Hopefully this one wont be so hard and will be a little more flexible and forgiving.  "one can only hope"  ;D

After a number of years bags start to leak, and get frayed around the edges.
THIS means they are unlikely to work correctly.


Whilst surgery can sometimes improve matters,
after a number of operations efficiency plummets,
and after a while aesthetics become so poor that
the best "over all" solution is to simply get another one.


In this way people will not feel so sorry for you as you go by.
They will be less likely to wretch and whisper behind your back.

It's still the original skirt, about 14 years old. The replacement has been rough cut and WILL be fitted later this year, in the meantime I'll be doing a contact line recoat and the usual upper surface joint fettle. I didn't think a bag skirt could last so long!!
