    Today was a busy one.

    We did loads, saw much, ate well.

    And laughed a lot, visiting various friends

    Bought, scavenged and collected stuff.

    All I want to share is a bunch of kids toys seen really.


    So off to Faversham for a market, and then visiting mate Neil nearby.

    Saw one of these, would love too find one or more of them.



    Council,offices, from a loooong time ago.




    Decommissioned water pump.



    Then my highlight of the day.











    Love this one. Not for sale.



    Loads more done, tools and machines collected, bought etc.

    More later.

    Thursday I called a mate whom I do not get to see often anymore as my job has evolved and the territory changed

    However some friendships are cemented in simple trust and knowing who has your back.

    In this case, both of us know it.

    After 45 minutes of catching up on travel, kids, dogs, cats and the rest, he randomly asked me if I had a trailer.

    I thought he needed to borrow one, and said yes, I had a bike trailer with no sides, but he was welcome to it, and that I wished it had sides as it would possibly work better for him (he is not a biker, so would not be needing a bike trailer of course)

    So he replied that he did not need a trailer, but had one, and did I need or want one.

    He would send pics on Friday.

    On Friday he sent these photos, and I realised I would happily offer it a home, so I asked him how much he wanted for it, to which he replied: A Handshake, drink a coffee with him, play with Max their new dog and collect the two litres of South African Brandy he has had stashed away for me the last two years.

    Now I just need to get to collect the thing 30 miles from here, as none of my vehicles have a tow hitch.

    @CraigRK May have to collect on my behalf on his way here to collect all the treasure he has at my place.







    Friday night after a rough week at work my V8 addiction broke through and Sally and I needed to go for a decent drive in the Blazer

    So off to my local, serviced gas station where they still fill your tank.



    And then off......

    Sally likes to take photos when I am not watching.



    Eventually back home, I parked the Blazer up over the street, in case a potential buyer stopped to look.



    On Saturday Sally and I went to Faversham to a street market, afterward we went to see mate Neil, who sold me my new welder a couple of years ago.
    He also sold @CraigRK a 75 liter compressor while we were there, into the back of the Focus it went.

    Then to the Isle of Sheppey to deliver the Radio Flyer race car to mate Aaron, and check out what he was up to.

    He pointed out the small skip and mentioned stuff he had tossed in there.

    Included was a good welders mask, about 20 hardly used micro fibre cloths bag, 200 very large black bin liner bags, and a load of random stuff I did pass on.

    Micro fibres already washed and dried.

    However............

    This, came home from his workshop.



    Complete Porta Power tool.

    Bootfairs were big today, both had large fields filled to the brim.

    However, as @johnnybravo says, loads of Pink stuff.

    For those who do not know Bootfairs, side view.



    Some small wooden masks.



    Managed to convince @CraigRK that he needed one of these.



    Massive length of 3M double sided tape, cheap.



    I love the romantic notion of Cuba, and the cars there, possibly linked to my current want, to change the Blazer for something older.

    This picture cost me a whole 30p and it’s love.y.



    And all together now......

    Listed below.



    So.

    Lovely Vintage gate bolt for Craig 20p
    Two small wooden masks for me £1.00
    Ice trays for Sally 70p the lot
    3M double sides tape Martin £2.00
    Stars scarf for me £1.00
    Cuban picture for me 30p
    London Bus £1.00
    Clay bottle for garden 50p
    VW mug 20p
    Extendable metal Shoe rack for Sally £2.00
    “Radio Flyer” Cookie jar for Craig £2.00
    Buy of the day for me. MEXICAN BLANKET £2.00



    In other news, the “Hotrod Shopper Bike” I did a few years ago, came back from Mickey, headed to Craig’s caravan site.




    Weekend almost over.

    All that left is to go for another nice drive in the Blazer.

    Yup, needs must.

    Thank you mate.

    Yes, I love 50’s style and pinup art.

    Pay g £30.00 and more for a pair of pretty cufflinks for work, just does not work for my head.

    But £2.00 is more my style, it leaves cash in the kitty for beers.



    In other news.....

    Remember last years USA Road trip included Andy in Oklahoma where we cast aluminium and Alu-Bronze.

    He has been going on a bit more after I made a comment.

    Posted this pic yesterday

    Next up will be casting a gas pedal.

    Certainly will be a Marmite thing, to love or hate.

    Just got a pic from Andy in Oklahoma

    He did a first casting for a personalised Bigfoot Gas Pedal.

    Due to being thin, long and metal setting too fast, it did not completely fill the mould.

    However........

    All is not lost in my world.

    Being perfect imperfect it would be just right for a patina build.



    No need to add damage or fake wear to it.

    I love it.
