I have done tiling both floors & my kitchen backsplash, built my fireplace mantle, & helped both my son & daughter tear down & rebuild their first homes. I can do most everything but I did hire an electrician to move the wiring for my new light fixtures. I like being hands on in my home.... it gives me a lot of satisfaction & I save some money, too.

Can I hire you someday?  :p How much do you charge per hour? :twisted:

Charles I'm sure a wildlife experience Down Under would be more in order.
In her spare time Maureen could renovate. Something!  :p
Crocodiles, spiders, highly venomous snakes, stinging ants........... :-)

Don't you just love it when others organise your life for you. :rolleyes: :-x:love:

I work cheap but I like high quality products so what I save in labor, I make up for in materials. 8-)


Life is hard...but I just take it one photograph at a time.

Its been ages since I posted in this thread. Over this last year I've moved from my canon 7DII to a Fuji XT3 for wildlife (and pretty much everything else with a few exceptions in the portrait area where I use my full frame) I am very happy with the quality I get out of this camera and the 100-400 lens from Fuji. Its much lighter and Ive had some pretty serious issues with arthritis so every little bit helps. Im hoping to get out and do more wildlife stuff in the new year, I am lucky enough at present to be living in a state in Australia where we have been pretty much covid free with few changes to our lifestyle since the start of all this crazy stuff. wishing everyone a happy Christmas and new year. lets hope the world can get this virus under control in 2021

The Fuji agrees with you. Lovely photos!

Wow. These are awesome.
Love the wrens. So nice to see three huddled like that. Beautiful photo.

I started an Aussie wrens thread to promote our beauties. These would certainly grace that https://photography-on-the.net …read.php?t=1517​719&page=2

Lovely animals for sure. Intriguing things too.

Charles it was more a generic response, but yes, but not from my aggressiveness.
We males can be somewhat lacking in some areas with different priorities around the house that wives don't want to wait until such and such.
Just get it done!!!
I reckon some will get my drift  :p

but in reality some wives snip at all and sundry. Thought I'd better balance things a bit  :p
Now how's that for 2 bob each way  :p
(you might need to Google that Charles :-) )
