    Default Crap Weather for October!

    Actually, it's not too bad. Dry for now, but rain forecast.

    dry, reasonably bright after a very dull start. Rained all night I think.

    Tomorrow is rain all day again.

    Three times today we've had a dry spell long enough for the car to dry out enough for me to carry on waxing it and each time I've gone out to do it, it starts raining again!

    Didn't know you had one of those. Good back-up amp.

    Bought it June 2019 off of eBay but volume pot knackered so the output was at full all the time. Advertised as 'in full working order' ofc.

    Pro shop don't have much on at the moment as all gigs etc cancelled so I gave them some bits and pieces to fix. £5 for a new vol pot and £30 labour... I should really learn to do this stuff myself.

    Meanwhile - dry but not sunny here. Did go dark earlier so thought it might rain but it didn't and now it's gone bright again.
