It was a little scruffy, and I could feel that the frame wasn't quite right under the cushions. But for the price we decided to give it a try.

And I don't care if it's scruffy because we have scruffy dogs who like to climb on scruffy sofas. Lots more scruffs to come.  :thumleft:

Not to hijack the last conversation........

but just wanted to say this Mr Zog handy man thing rubbing off........

Im now call it Zogging or I Zogged the weekend  :biggrin:  8)  :peepwall:

We have water shortage problems in Cape Town and not waiting for the Council to solve our problems decided to problem "Zog" and put my own JoJo to collect rain water as we expecting big rainfall this coming Wednesday........

So didnt dial the plumber.......i got inspired by the ZOG.........what would he do....
found a suitable spot where i could get maximum benefit from the roof....two down pipes in close proximity......had to chop out a tree to make space for 1890 litre tank i ordered....used existing pipe lengths cut short....got a few bends from Brights.....made my own brackets.....found some old paint to match the house

and wala
 
.so thanks for the inspiration to do stuff yourself it has rubbed off

Sometimes men are dumb.

And other times they are just plain STUPID  :xxbah:



I was Zogging a few days ago, and I was being swarmed by a bunch of little gnats/miggies/bugs. I was swatting at the little fuckers, trying to keep them out of my eyes etc. Trying to Zog was difficult  8)   :biggrin:


Then one of the little bastards flew into my ear.  :eek7:


Jissis....   


I already suffer quite badly from permanent tinnitus, and have a bit of hearing loss to boot. But the little fucker sounded like a Boeing on take-off inside my head. I tried to get it out, but it wasn't leaving. Like a squatter in a tin shack...


I got pretty desperate. So I grabbed a toothpick and stabbed until it went quiet. The relief was wonderful. But I should have been concerned when there was blood on the tip of the toothpick...

The wound that I had made didn't just heal up. Last night I hardly slept because of the earache.  :patch:

So this morning at 9 I was at the Doctor's office. I have an infection, and ear drum is red and inflamed, but not perforated. Luckily. I got some fancy anti-biotic ear drops, and a lecture about shoving sharp objects into my ear  ::)

I KNOW all about this. I KNOW not to do it. I KNOW that I should have rather even squirted some WD40 into my ear to kill the bug.  But I did it anyway. I felt desperate.

I'll survive, and the total medical bill was only $20.00.   But I also lost an hour off work. And I feel rather ill.

And Mrs Zog wasn't impressed either...  muttered something that I couldn't quite hear...  :peepwall:

Unfortunately Mr. Zog, the pastime of "Zogging" is just a bit too close sounding to that particularly British activity known as "Dogging" usually undertaken in "laybyes" or car parks.  ::) :biggrin:

Zog, next time grab some cooking oil instead of a toothpick.
Gooi olie in, ou pel.

Then you can turn your head and the gogga will come out with the oil.
