It’s harder to find a new chain to my chain saw than I thought it would be. I can find chains to any other kind of that brand but not to the one I have. They all seem to be sold out and personally, if I owned a store I would buy more of that kind since they obviously are sold out everywhere. I have one more place to check but it looks as if I have to buy a new chainsaw instead, that’s rather annoying.
I also had been thinking of buying two new pillows for my bed, the ones I have are really old and been repaired so many times that I’m not sure how much of the original pillows are left 🙂 There’s a big store just beside the one I went to to get a new chain but they didn’t open until half an hour later and I had no wish of waiting in the parking lot. They had some kind og “guest pillow” at the supermarket to which I drove instead but I don’t know why they think that they can call them pillows at all since they not even were 5cm (2 inches) thick? I would have needed to but well over ten to at least get the impression to have two new pillows 🙂
Yesterday afternoon when we were out walking we suddenly stood eye to eye with a rather large calf 🙂 She was very nice and slowly walked away when we came too close. Turns out that it was the same calf that had broken in to the paddock the day before. I could see that one of those elastic wires they have instead of gates now days was missing but she didn’t go back that way so the wires had to be broken somewhere else too. I finally found the telephone number, with the help of the farmer next door, to the owner so there were people here repairing the fence not long after.
Today starts my last week of vacation and the weather will be much like it has been all the time. Some sunshine, some rain, rather windy and even some sunshine. I really can’t complain about the weather this vacation, it has mostly been just enough warm with just enough wind to keep most flies away, not much rain but then again not much sunshine either. I’m really happy that we didn’t get the weather they had and still have in southern and eastern Europe. They’ve had up to 44C (111,2F), well I’ve heard that some place got up to 47C (116,6F) but I don’t know if that’s true. They have also had enormous thunderstorms and many forest fires.
I think it might be time for another walk before I sit down and look at the vet Noel Fitzpatrick again and after that I’ll see if we have any swedes competing in the athletics world championship.
