Just to dispel the Myth.

Post by Woodie on Thu Sep 01, 2016 9:55 am

Thought it was time to set the Forum on Fire so thought it was about time I posted some pictures - - just for the hell of it. Don't want to cause any Heart Attacks, especially Logi with him being so much older than me. Lol. Very Happy




Thought I had better send two of the same or Logi would have nothing to laugh about.
There are some more pictures on Your Pics. I will upload some more as time allows.

Where the Electric Conduit goes through the wall in the top left of the picture, is the tiny area where the fire came through from the building next door where the fire started. If that hole had been cemented up as it should have been, then I would almost certainly have escaped the fire. Ho-hum!!

There was a lot of money's worth of spares gone up in smoke. But I have enough vehicles to scrap to give me personally enough spares to keep my Hi-Jets running for some time yet. Thankfully.

Thanks Oldie. I can always rely on you for  uplifting comments.  Bit late up this morning aren't you?  Nice to know that it is chucking it down with rain down  in the Cardiff area.  Looked at your local  weather forecast.

Nice and sunny here though.   Rain due to come from your rough neck of the woods by 2ish today though.

Hi Andy. No, none of us could get insurance as the buildings were in such a poor state of repair. So lost virtually all my spares and worst of all 2 winters worth of chopped to length firewood for the Woodburner at home.
Ironically, all 17 vehicles I had up there were insured fully comprehensive and not one of them was damaged.

The bloke who caused the fire hasn't been in touch at all. Not even a text to say sorry. Unbelievable.

I have found a hammer to the kneecap usually elicits an apology Wink

It's wise he doesn't admit liability, otherwise he'd be liable for your damages!

He is liable anyway Matt through negligence I have been informed. But he will just plead poverty anyway, so waste of time anyway.

I have just got to put it behind me and move on winding down  sooner than expected. I  can't bear grudges for long and forgive and forget very quickly.
I found out that he had lost a lot more machinery than I originally thought.
Have had to draw a line under it now.
I have been really rough for the past 4 weeks after getting a  tick bite,  but since Monday have been feeling a lot better. I had four bloodtests on Monday and should have the results back today or tomorrow. Just hope it is not Lymes Disease.

I have just bought a new Hydraulic Engine Lifting Crane to remove the good engines from the Grand Moves and Hi-Jet's. My old one got well and truly cooked in the fire.

Tim in the yard next to me has been given a 6kva Two cylinder Diesel Generator with electric start, which we are going to wire up this weekend and I will have the water back on too. I haven't been to the garage for almost 5 weeks since I went down with this  awful fever.
Hopefully back to some semblance of order next week. I have got 3 vans to get tidied and Mot'd for sale for starters. Going to start on the easiest ones first then start removing engines and scrapping vehicles for spares..

A friend of mine is going to pressure wash all the inside of my smoke infested workshop. Got a door way to block up and an internal  window. Then remove a couple of work benches to make it easier to strip vans down inside during the winter.
Loads to do, but will be glad to finally pack up and have a proper retirement.

Hopefully it's not Lyme, that's not fun, I have it, sadly it was years before I realised what it was and in my neck of the woods the gps don't belive it exists anyway, just wish I had a picture of the bullet rash I had. But never mind, they seem hell bent on giving other disease diagnosis to be getting on with Laughing
Sounds like your moving forward in a positive way, the only way to remain sane

Paramedics Page :
I had a huge Volcano appear overnight on my shin and a horrible large blotchy red patch appear four nights after the first fever appeared. I have never felt so hot or sweated so much in my life. The sweats are still continuing now though not so bad.

I phoned the Doctors yesterday for the Blood test results and was told that they need me to repeat them again on Monday, which is very ominous. It means another weeks worrying wait for answers.

I have deliberately not gone on Google to look at the symptoms. I will wait for the Doctors results.

The symptoms vary widely anyway, luckily I don't seem too badly affected, in that I'm alive Razz but then already having an overactive immune system probably helped in this instance. I feel like I'm being experimented on now though as been given immune suppressants to take Shocked it's helping the RA hopefully nothing sinister rears up tho!!
I'm sure you'll be fine, you've had a lot of crap going on so any little infection is bound to knock you for six.
Keep taking it easy
