    Fat fingers or spell checker.

    Regardless, I missed that one and had to go look for it.

    Sally and I popped over to Essex and IKEA yesterday, making a detour to meet up with @PaulY and Lulu at J28 of the M25 to collect @CraigRK ‘s new Chevy Tailgate that Paul had collected in Luton last week, so next stop Leatherhead.

    Sally was eager with the camera and got it, including Lulu first.



    A really neat tailgate




    I guess it’s Bound to happen some times.

    Bootfair mainly sucked for me today

    Always interesting sellers though, this guy is a regular with cameo stuff.

    I like NATO or Cammo green.



    But @CraigRK was the winner with this large set of Augers for 6.00







    The total haul.

    Included:

    Bicycle side stand for Craig’s daughter 1.00
    Four coffee mugs unused, for their caravan site 50p each
    Nodding head dog for someone in the USA 50p
    Pink scarf, unused 50p
    Large phone booth mug, unused 20p
    Glass skull bottle 50p
    Some plasterboard jointing tape for Sally’s bedroom job 20p
    3 Union Jack lapel pins 50p
    Star Wars shooter glasses, unused 50p
    Metal Millennium Falcon and bunch of figurines 1.00
    Dog grass anchor for Sally’s dog 1.00
    Load of fresh fruit for 2.50

    That’s the lot.

    Total spend, under 15.00

    Cheap entertainment

    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.
    neil.
