  1. Paul isn't into restorations. He just does what is needed to get them up and running and road worthy.
  2. Decided yesterday to clear the pond out a bit, as with this hot weather it has dried up. It's not been done for a while and the reeds etc were starting to encroach further in from the sides. Monday morning saw seven loads taken away for disposal by that stalwart duo, Sears and Saxon. Called a halt at lunch time as the sun had come round and it got a tad warm. This morning three more loads before lunch and that will do. Left some at one end to kind of hide my wood yard. Those below are were a willow is. Left for the wild life. Last load. I wouldn't have thought when I started there was going to be ten loads. Now to find a shady spot to relax in.
  3. O Factory built and original paint work. Would have been bright yellow.
  4. All the Best Dave. Hope you have a good day.
  5. Called in to see a friend of mine who's into vintage cars on Friday. As usual, after not seeing him for a while, another vehicle had been acquired. 1925 Renault pickup. He took me out for a little ride. LH drive and iffy brakes made traveling the lanes quite interesting. This is not my photo but it is the same vehicle.
  6. Best wishes and hope your having a good day.
  7. It's doing grand, Alan. Credit to your rebuild. Trailer work is it's main use. Starts up no problem and runs sweet.
  8. The field opposite my humble abode, owned by one of those digester companies, has not been used for a couple of years. A farmer is renting it to graze sheep in. But first it needs fencing, ploughing and re-seeding. Also down one side trees and bushes needed cutting back. That was done a couple of days ago with a machine. I've got permission to salvage any wood, But I have to be quick about it. So into the field this morning about 10. Got three loads before lunch and one after and it nearly killed me. Didn't help with everything being piled up. Bit of a fight getting to the good stuff. What's that saying? Only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the mid day sun. 72F. I should know better at my age. Four loads like the one below. The box on the back of the Sears is just the right size for chainsaw etc. The wood did fight back a bit. Still more to collect.
  9. I've not got the exact figure yet, but it looks like we will have raised around £1,000 for the British Heart Foundation.
  10. Happy Birthday Chris. Hope you have a good day.
  11. Today Heathersgill Vitage Club held a charity tractor run, in memory of the founder and club chairman, who died a year ago. We were expecting thirty or so tractors. We actually had seventy. The weather stay fine and the sun came out just in time for the run. Run over country lanes, some very narrow, it covered 30 miles. I was marshalling at a junction near the end and managed to get a few photo's. The start at Longtown Auction Mart. Cumbria UK. It wasn't confined to just vintage tractors as you can see.
  12. The field opposite has not been used for a couple of years. There is a drainage ditch running through it and two years ago the banks were cleared of tree's and bushes. Those were just pushed to one side and left. I got a few loads of firewood out of it last year. Last night a contractor I know, was cutting back the undergrowth round the edges, ready for fencers to come. The farmer who is going to rent it is going to reseed it and graze sheep in it. This uncovered some more timber I could not get at. This morning before it got too hot, I went in with chainsaw, Sears and trailer. Half an hour and I had a full load. Maybe some more later as the fencers clear more undergrowth.
  13. All the best and have a good day.
  14. I've seen the first one but can't remember the second. I'd like it though.
