tomorrow is a red letter day…

Dear diablog,

Tomorrow is a red letter day – why? Wait a bit and you will find out!

What has been taking place, however, has needed a degree of mechanical skill and this is the best clip, thanks to Erika


that I have come across recently that seriously shows mechanical skill!


Mind you, as she says, only in India!!!!

Yours, diablog, fair dinkum


foxy lady…

Dear diablog,

I, annoyingly, still find too little time to find, scan/photograph or edit all the ‘stuff’ I have on our hero Sash Fisher. This has to get better – soon.

Mine went immediately to
