Posts From Home - Hovercraft!

Brigid:  Ready Barkley?

Preflight - Complete!

Before Start - Check!

My Hovercraft is full of eels! - Check!

(If Barkley could talk) - Moje vznášedlo je plné úhořů !


It's Friday.  I'm home from travels safely, with an adult beverage, a new toy and a black lab always happy to play air traffic controller  (Watch that landing Mom  - Bouncy Bouncy!)

See you all tomorrow!

Are you sure Barkley isn't saving, "Hvor er bacon?"

Murphy's Law said...

Eels?

Borepatch said...

You crack me up.

Keads said...

Oh, have fun with that! I went sorta overboard with my Hovercraft.

TinCan Assassin said...

You even have your own unmanned drone. How cool is that?

Life is so easy some days. I used to think "pets" were simpletons. Until I figured out they are simply way ahead of the curve. Hmm? An adult beverage? I might have to join you, through space and time. Thanks for the notion and cheers.

That lamp in the first pic is sure a blast from the past. I know, because I have it's twin. Same two on/off buttons. And it's swing-arm cousin, which lives above my reloading bench.

That's from your spam comments. Right?

MSgt B said...

Can you make that thing hover in the air dangling a piece of bacon?

You could have a lot of fun with Barkley that way...

The Old Man said...

Glad to see I'm not the only big kid that loves to play with a Blade indoors. Stewie-the-pug is mystified by it, but my 3-year-0ld g'dotter thinks it's the cat's ass - particularly when she can't see me whilst I'm piloting.
They sort of have their own 4 Safety Rules....

Roscoe said...

It starts with a little toy helicopter and then, before you know it, you're building a drone in the garage.

Old NFO said...

Heh... Don't land it where Barkley can get to it... Those things seem to have a 'pitch' that is like a dog whistle!!!

And even with a soft mouth retrieval, it's gonna be in pieces!!!

Rev. Paul said...

I'm still giggling like a kid, imagining Barkley chasing that thing. How many pieces of furniture has he knocked into/over, so far? :^)

Mac from Michigan said...

Heh. Have fun. Easy going away from ya, but when it's turned around and heading toward is when the fun begins...

Brigid said...

Well Seasoned - you have a good point there :-)

Keads - I saw that, pretty cool!

Tin Can Assassin - I was at work late one night long ago and I hear this soft "whoosh" noise. I wasn't sure if I was alone. The facility was fairly big and more than one night late I'd sound my duck call to hear another fellow respond with his turkey call in another sector. But this night, I thought it was just me and whoever was on security detail. There it is again, that whoosh. Then I see a shadow against the wall. Someone had a remote control blimp and it was bouncing across the tops of some cubicles like a drunken manatee.

Dan - Enjoy the hunting! up there
:-)

Irontomflint - you got it!

The Old Man - that would be fun to watch.

Roscoe - drones with lucas wiring, chaos ensues!

You all enjoy your day, Breakfast is cleaned up (recipe later) and I'm going to go enjoy this beautiful weather and go take the hovercraft out in the shop where Barkley doesn't try and catch it like a frisbee.

Island Bob said...

RC copter + cats = fun-filled evening

PresterSean said...

I am no longer infected.

Roscoe said...

The Raspberry Pi controller board used in some of the DIY drones is British engineering, but Lucas Wiring is nowhere to be found on the Pi board I bought.

That Guy said...

I have the identical chopper. It is down for repairs right now, after Tucker the Rat Terrorist thought he would protect his family from this invading screaming air monster and took it out with a very spectacular flying leap.

So... gotta buy a new set of blades.

Cowboy Blob said...

I was guessing Serbo-Croatian, but I should have known from the chicken scratches that it was CZ.
