This weekend was my best weekend since being in America last year.


Dennis finished up the dash rebuild on his red truck over the weekend.

Another lovely tool.



Sunday I picked up a lady for Bootfair and ultimately the rest of the day.
Certainly beat being alone.

Two Bootfairs, minimal gain.

Pic was 50p
Star for next replica 30’s gas pump £1.00
Small axe for Craig £2.00
Gloves for his kid £1.00
Other random stuff mostly 50p




Coffee, grand tour back home then a long walk up to the farm.





Up at the village pond, the ducks had 10 babies. Duckling yes you pedants.
Let’s see how long that lasts.



Later I did a great BBQ as well and then returned the visitor home.... safely.



Monday, being a bank holiday there was another Bootfair.

Perfect.

Craig had asked me to keep,an eye out for some industrial strength castors....

Guess what.....

£6.00




Doorknobs £1.00
Unicorn bubble bath 50p
License plate £1.00
Wales badge £1.00
Over door hooks 20p each
Snackwich toaster £2.00




In the afternoon I took the bike out and rode over to Craig’s to deliver his stuff, and also to do some of the planning for our USA Road trip later this year.

Made is 250miles on the bike over the weekend.

Yes, Ioved it all.

Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

More randomness.

Had an offer for some free roof sheeting from an industrial site..

Most of you know how my head works.

Free for collection by prior arrangement etc.





Any of you remember this pipe dream?





Of course it would mean finding, buying the support structures and putting it all up.

Would also mean a lot of covered space for more “Stuff”

So am I being an idiot, or is this a go for it kind of job....??



In other news, I bought an air rifle last weekend,

Why?

Because there are a couple of large rats patrolling between the properties and I see them cross the lawn to or from the neighbours.



Also cut the hedges over the weekend when rain allowed me to.

Have discovered that I have some Wrens nesting at the back by the garage.

That makes is three pairs of birds nesting on my property.

Bush pigeons, Blackbirds and the Wrens.

Plus of course the Fox who comes to look for food every night, pisssing the cats off no end.





Later.

Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

Nice score on the roofing tin. I am working toward a shed for my farm and have the opportunity to get the coversheets from all the pallets of metal paneling being put on a building at work. Talking with the contractor, we have found that the building supplier sent sheeting to cover two openings that get an overhead door. both of those are 20' tall and 20' wide. I get all of those sheets too!

I say, if you need to covered space, go for it!

How much of your property can be buildings? If you have No restrictions I say Go For IT!

Just need to do some thinking.

As you say Bill, need more stuff.

Sent you a PM, think I covered it.

I know there is a ratio, but being a non fixed structure, one can get away with it a bit.

Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

Well, one will be associated with killing vermin.

Hint: It’s not furry.



Absolutely lovely piece of kit.

To go with the little air rifle I bought last week.



Some great weather this week.



St Thomas Hospital gardens offered these.....





And the London view toward Waterloo station.



In a different hospital I managed to play with this tool.

Used for cavity inspections for Fire Marshalls.



A pic that came up on FB this week.

First house I designed about 25 years ago and built in Simons Town, Cape Town.

Still a lovely place.



Another bonus this week.....

Got to see the Wrens nest and eggs.

I also realised that the Blue Tits have moved into a nesting box I put up this year.

This means I actually have 5 species of birds nesting on my property which pleases me immensely.






Let’s hope a few manage to be fledged.

Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

Had a great BBQ with friends last night, only two Bud Lights, and to sleep at 11.30.

By 03.00 Insomnia my friend came knocking......

Made a cuppa tea and back to bed, joined by a noisy bed bug.



That was the end of my night.

By 6.30 it was off to Bootfair and I found a few small random items.

My winner of the day was this hardwood sign for my garden.



At 2 pm I had a lunch and dog walking date at Upnor.

On the Medway river.



A good lunch and a drink at The Pier pub and restaurant followed by a McFlurry.



And so ended my weekend.

More training and stress this coming week.

Later guys.
