She'll be right, Mummy" ... (interpretation - "I'll get back to the house construction tomorrow, Mummy"
January is notorious for "fiddling with the Velocette," so I wasn't the least bit surprised when the phone rang this morning. It was Uncle Russell to talk with whaiāipo. Within the hour he was over from Tauranga.
Initial look-over and tutu (tinker - not to be confused with a ballerina's costume)
Push to the top of the drive - it's only high point we have here to push start the bike ... as always passers-by have an ihu (a nosey)
Something's not quite right
Whaiāipo catches up to Uncle Russ to see what's happened
More tutu-ing (tinkering)
Yet more tutu-ing (tinkering)
Push it back to the shed and tutu some more
- They have success; or
- It gets too dark to do the test rides outside and decide to give it a crack āpōpō - or whatever day they can.
Thanks for dropping by
