    Sometimes the stars aligning makes all the difference


    Well....

    I created one. (A wagon)

    Craig really wanted a Radio Flyer based wagon to drag around autojumbles and bootfairs as well as other uses. Thank

    Last night Sally saw one listed on FB Marketplace for 15.00 which is crazy low, 22 minutes after it got listed. So we jumped on it from here and got @CraigRK onto it.

    Today he did a detour from London to Streatham to pick it up.

    Happy camper.

    Couple of stations.





    Little Red Wagon on an adventure. A road trip really.



    On the train.

    Standing room only.



    Back to Leatherhead and into the back of the AMG ML500 donor for the 50 Chevy truck.

    Happy wagon.

    Morning Andy,

    THREAD HERE: https://www.garagejournal.com/forum/...d.php?t=334140

    These Arrived in St Louis yesterday

    For @CraigRK and @djones1 and myself.

    Thank you very much for forwarding these on to us.

    I suspect Dennis may let us know where his is going to go.

    Craig, who knows, he has such a variety of possible places to post it.

    Me........?

    Not sure yet, certainly indoors for starters, just to sit and enjoy, reflect, and talk about Steve’s legacy to anyone who will listen, there is always a chance to pay it forward in a life lesson for others.


    Thanks again for the effort you are putting in for all of us, making these and individually shipping them around the world.

    .a very eventful weekend for me, Sally and Prozac.

    She was gutting and destroying all of her bedroom furniture

    I had to dismantle it all, flatpack reversed.

    Halfway through it.



    Also managed to find her a new garden gate on FB market place for 25.00

    This was to be collected on Sunday in Prozac






    After packing the van we went to my place, Sally bought dinner.

    Pensioners portion for me, weird order, three pieces of fish in one lump.



    So after Bootfair today, I went to empty the van, followed by picking up the gate.

    Fits easily into the rear




    Then back at Sally’s place.

    Fitted.



    And the rest of the bedroom furniture, bed frame etc along with the old gate, ready for disposal.

    surprisingly there was still nearly 1/2" before it bottomed, although we did feel that driving across town. it pulled just fine, remember they fit that little 2.2 diesel in sprinter vans too.

    Totally agree Neil.

    And gutted for sure.

    However, regardless of WANT.....

    The rules are one out, one in.

    So it opens the game for other stuff.

    Boxes of penny washers 1.00 each and open half box free.
    Bag of nuts, washers and bolts 50p the lot. Crazy.
    Porcelain Door/Drawer knobs 1.00 the lot.
    Two glass Barcello chickens 1.00 to add to my random collection
    4 Queens Jubilee coins

    Jubilee clip date.



    Mirrors 5.00

    Really pleased with them.








    Added Bonus today.

    I had to take the first load of gutted bedroom stuff to the tip in Prozac for Sally.
    Guy next to me was about to sling this out, unused.
    I said put it in the Berlingo.



    Back home.


    I will be planting posts soon.



    Another tip run later to move the rest of the stuff and the broken down bed frame too.

    Maybe more luck.

    Got home yesterday from a day spent at Sally’s place completely gutting and tearing her bedroom and all of its furniture apart.

    Her son, daughter in law and grandson will be moving in for two years with her in order to save up for a deposit on their own place. The lovely landlord where they have lived the last three years and cleaned up and improved at their own cost has doubled the rent. So she is giving them the large main bedroom, redecorated and moving herself into the third very small bedroom. Crazy, but that’s a mother’s love, and they are good hardworking kids.

    Being that it all will be going into Prozac the van, for disposal at the local council tip 10:miles away, it really needed to be completely dismantled, right down to the handles, knobs, runners, hinges etc which @CraigRK is getting for his garage projects where he builds sliding storage solutions..

    More on this later.

    Got home and there was a surprise parcel in the kitchen, which Tim, the new lodger must have got from Mickey next door when he came in from his all day training course.


    I opened the parcel and found a note, two number plates and a number plate surround.

    The new plate was from a 1955 Lambretta scooter, unused, for my collection.

    The second plate was an original 1962 California plate, clearly worked all its life.

    Parcel from Ernie, PedalcarJoe, collector of high end stuff. In this case, he had been told to get rid of his first ever emotional patina purchase by power that is Mrs PCJ.



    So the reason I wanted to sell the Blazer in the first place, and have been buying upholstery fabric and other bits, and even now, am looking for an INDUSTRIAL SEWING MACHINE, was because I wanted to buy Ernie 1962 Ford Falcon Country Squire.


    Which of course has now sold, hence the 1954 Chevy Bel Air moving into the picture, unless I find something else more interesting







    This was the car for those who did not know it.


    And yes, it would have kept its look, mostly.
