Things you don't see anymore

Recommended Posts

When I was apprentice in a garage at the bottom of Sneinton road we had a customer who would come in for fuel and the odd repair to his model 70 invacar, one day we had a phone call from someone say the invacar driver had broken down on Carlton road and could we go and rescue him, myself and the other apprentice took off on this mercy mission,he was only a couple of hundred yards up from Sneinton road so not too bad, we started to push him towards the garage and got up quite a bit of speed with us pushing and going down the steady slope, when we got to the corner of Sneinton road/Carlton road he turned his steering handle bar to the left but never applied the brakes so over he went in the middle of the road with traffic backing up Carlton road and Sneinton road,what a bloody mess,the driver was ok thankfully and the damage to his car was only cosmetic,we managed to right him and push him over the road to our garage for repairs,he had only ran out of fuel,you live and learn don't you?

I always preferred Camberwick Green. Trying to guess who was in the musical box, all wound up and ready to play....

No sign of it up here in Caithness, Denshaw. Outside it is currently 7°C, cloud at zero feet and a strong north wind.  Been like this since mid-May. I think the French have used their weather veto to prevent us from having a summer, this year.

My garden rake broke yesterday and as I was re-shaping the handle to fit into the head bracket I thought: "Now here's summat as yer don't see anymore - folk as fix their old garden tools rather than buy new uns."  I have two rakes; one I fixed yesterday by reshaping the handle to fit the head and the other has a splint on the handle, which split along the lower half about four years ago. The splint has held perfectly over the past years and looks set to continue to hold for a while yet!
