Old pictures revive old memories.

I found one of my old photo albums clearing out my parents house,inside were some pictures of some of the old cars I had a long while back.This one was an old Rover 14 I bought from a Norwich scrapyard.I seem to remember it was a pre war version.I spent ages doing it up then sold it.I fitted it with a Rover 110 engine and it was about as fast as it was lethal.I'm trying to resurrect some of the other pictures to see if I can find the registration number and see if the old thing survived.
These old cars used the whitworth and BSF spanners that I sell now and export all over the world from my shop in lowestoft.

I see no ships.

Another odd boat in the harbour,it's called FINDER.
In front of it are another couple of boats that have engines running all day and all night,seems a bit anti eco,its a wonder greenpeace or someone hasn't been and boarded them.

Its raining heavily here this morning.It might be good for the sales of sou westers but the sea side a drab place to be in the rain.The trawler basin has a fair number of tugs tied up to the quay,they might be sheltering from bad weather forecast later although some are working locally.
Its better than a few years back when the only boats seen here were waiting to be scrapped.

Litter and often.

This was the sight greeting me at the end of the road today.Bin bags full of letters,food and waste all over the road.The council have been looking through it to work out whos been dumping it,I hope they wind a few hefty fines into them.

I don't believe it !.

Funny sort of a day.
The other night I posted some auctions for car parts and tools etc on Ebid auctions.
I've put plenty of stuff on there over the years and without realising it one of the things I posted brought the total number of items on the site up to 3,000,000.As a result I won a prize in a competition I didn't even know I was entering.I got some e-mails from people and one from the auction site but I was convinced they were scams or some sort of joke.Finally the site got in touch with me and sent the payment.Never has my flabber been so ghasted.
I like ebid with its laid back approach and its low fees but to get this sort of bonus is pretty mind blowing.
They say there's no such thing as a free lunch,maybe but this is the closest thing to it
Thanks Ebid.
