Bad Photos in more ways than one
Winner in the category “Worst Photo of a Piece of Filet in a Mining Camp” has to go to this:
No idea what I did wrong but it’s possibly the worst photo of filet EVER.
I tried to improve it by making it blue.Didn’t help much.
Anyway – we saw some progress last night: some frogging- but still, there was progress. The difficult thing I find is the counting. I need to make a block in 13 spaces..chain 3 and a double crochet which is pull through 1, pull through 2.. 1 space, and again… 2 spaces… and again 3 spaces and there’s lots of numbers flying around…. It’s coming along but it’s harder to do lying down. I don’t have a couch at Tb 3 and my preferred filet position is propped up by cushions with the pattern pinned to the arm, so I can read it.
And a highlighter to cross off what’s been done.
As a newsflash : My plans for the weekend have just gone out the window. I now have to work until Sunday and then I have Monday and Tuesday off… What it does mean, unfortunately, is I won’t make it to Knitters group on Saturday but I can go to the Bank… and the Post Office and mail off some of the Queanbeyan entries. (a scarf, a shawl and the Peachy Merino .. at least…)
So let’s see – Its Wednesday…
The sunrise looked very purple this morning and as the clay layer is catching up on the windrows (which will be a problem again soon) I can actually see over the walls. This is Good News, because I’m not having nearly as many Hobbitses moments and Bad News as the sunrise is happening earlier and earlier and I won’t be on site by then. Daylight Savings doesn’t happen here in the NT (the Eastern states – Queensland, NSW, Victoria and the ACT all change this weekend, is that right Mother_figure? ) so you end up with a sunrise at 0430 and sunset about 1920. And I have to think an hour and half ahead if I want to call Arcadia, Mother_figure, Julie C etc etc etc.
The Good News from my site here at Toothbrush Three is that (and I hate to tempt the Gods but Jessica [our other Safety boot wearing Crocheter] will understand why this is an Achievement) we are on Day 142 of the Project… and we are still INJURY FREE. We have had over 100 people working on the project here (based on Inductions) and we’ve worked 66,493 man hours since the start in June.
It makes me happy 🙂
*doing a little Hamster dance*
And this made me laugh (one of my inductees in the car today!)
This is not the case however, for this Indonesian mine site.
These are KOMATSU 785 Dump Trucks. They are a size bigger again than our Largest Dumpies. My head wouldn’t come above the centre of the axles. This incident occurred in September and if you read the report –
To me it looks very much like the Ute has driven into the side of the Dump Truck.
Had the Dump Truck driven over the Ute, the accident site would have looked VERY different.
(now tell yourself that Indonesia has far fewer OH&S regulations and accidents like this are more likely to happen there and not in Australia…)
Dump Truck Accident Photos, Purple Safety Boots and Crochet – what more can you ask for??
That’s me done for today – Hello to our two newest comment makers (Cloudedmaple and Cathy_cate) Glad to meet you!! I still feel like a goose for the diesel /unleaded mix-up , I didn’t yell at the previous mistake maker, Kris – I laughed at him. Loudly and repeatedly!
The Gods are getting me back. As for the Ants (dot dot dot) what is it about Ants and electrical appliances???
It’s bad enough I have cockatoos everywhere here
And scolding me from on high
But do I have to come home and find the ants have migrated into my kettle???
Tis a puzzlement.
