Giant pencil sharpener

Following suggestions from readers Towpath Bill and Diane & Ray I walked up to Wharf House Chandlers and asked if they had a giant pencil sharpener we could use to put a pointy end back on the boat hook pole.  They managed to sell me a new longer and thicker pole before taking It out the back and using a belt sander to make one end pointy!  The pole has already received a coat of primer and undercoat.  Second undercoat tomorrow followed by the top coats.

Afterwards I wandered up into Braunston Village to visit the butcher (sausages) and the superette (bread and fruit).  Jan has been busy doing more cleaning of the interior.

We’ve also had a number of emails about the iPad storage dongle.  If I get any further queries I might include the information in a blog post rather than reply to individual emails.   Jan’s dongle appears to be working well.

In the afternoon we had the pleasure of the company of fellow boaters and bloggers Geoff & Mags.  You will be pleased to know that between the four of us we managed to solve the majority of the world’s woes in one afternoon!  

Note: This was a boat toilet free conversation.

We even managed to remember to take the commemorative photo!

Put me down as a 'further query' please. :-)
