Leash walk, day 2

No sign of any limp at all today, but one more day on the leash won't do any harm ;)

Leash walk


Holly has been favoring one back leg for the last couple of days, so to hopefully stop it becoming anything worse we are going to do a few days of limited walking. She won't like it (and neither will I), but it's for her own good.

Crispian's new haircut :)





Done by his friend Mike's Mom- I think it looks awesome :)

Palm Road

Cobbles drawn and palms painted :)

Palm Sunday prep


Crosses covered, bulletins printed, missals set, palms checked and the "palm road" laid down ready for painting this afternoon :)


This year I got smart and got myself some knee-pads...


...should've done that years ago!

More FPV fun :)

So this afternoon I finally got a few minutes to play with my fpv rc car again. This time I put the screen in my modified welding mask and actually drove around using it to see where I was going- it's a blast to race around that close to the ground :) Here are some highlights...



I obviously knocked something loose towards the end there as the video got really crappy, but the camera and transmitter are still mounted kind of temporarily while I play around.

I kind of like the view through the missing windshield with a glimpse of the wheels below the body at the bottom, and this works well for tearing around at speed in the parking lot, but I think I have to find a way to mount the camera higher so I can actually see the wheels and the ground in front of me better if I'm going to take it on rougher terrain in the woods. Perhaps tomorrow I'll try that....

Genius :)

My son has realized that cheese puffs and keyboards don't go very well together, but if you use chopsticks there's no orange dust on your fingers.
