Free power...

Why would you not take it... well it is not really free as it has a capital outlay for the solar panel and the controller. I took the solar panel off Percy before she went to John's for painting and took advantage of some flexibility  - well a Saturday at work to call over at Fradley last Wednesday to re-attach the nuclear power converter to Percy's Batteries.

Photo's pinched from Kev & Anne's blog



A bit of time warp as the above were taken by Kev & Anne who came through Fradley later in the day on their way to Willington for some new batteries.

While I was reviewing the pics I took of the connections to ensure I reconnected the solar panel back the right way I got a toot as a boat passed. It was Maffi doing the 'Cressy' cruise ....


What a smile this fella had on his face, as did Molly !

It must be close to Maffi's birthday as it was nearly 4 years ago when I last met Maffi  - just after I brought Percy back from Braunston.

I locked Maffi up Hunts and Keepers then went back to complete the re-install.

I had left Leia at home so I had to lock Percy up despite it still being a lovely calm evening .

  1. If you ever need a babysitter for Leia just give me a ring! You know I love having her (even if the cats don't!)
