Last time, but 3 years ago, my Mog won the ‘Most Interesting’ award…and I had high hopes for victory again this year….but my hopes were sadly dashed when the Mayor annnounced that his Number One was my pal Paul Doherty’s highly polished +8!
Still, he had a nice sit in mine!
Not necessarily they have been away, but not used nature cam for a while!
Well, ‘new’ isn’t quite the right word, but you know what I mean!!! This is a 3 foot gauge 0-4-0 loco that used to work in Northamptonshire, and is now a museum showpiece. We have been given the task of cleaning it up and painting it….not to get it back into steam! It is in the workshop next to an 0-10-0 loco that the team is also fettling..this one arrived two weeks ago…The pics though, are of the 0-4-0 when it arrived..
From the ice cream van that calls in at Curborough…..and is the best ever!
I was first in the queue when he drove in….but those who know me would not stand in my way….
Waffle cone, generously filled…and given a nut dip, choc sauce poured on, and a flake ….all this for less than the price of a pint!
A film made in 1952, starring my Dad!
Playing golf through the winter can be a tad slippy at times, and recently, the course I play on has been very muddy in places….but my golf trolley wasn’t very good in these conditions. Some golfers have winter wheels for their trolleys, so it made me think…”I could make those” So a message to a motor biker pal Andy Richardson asking about lumpy tyres soon brought him to my door with a superb tyre! Deft use of a sharp knife and some (recycled!) zip ties solved the problem!
A new device; or rather ‘pair’of devices…… designed and hand-made here in Unstone….The UnstoneLift. A pair of beautifully crafted devices designed to avoid those cold and muddy fingertips you get when lifting manhole covers…
