Looks good Dug. How friendly are the swans there? We have a regular family on the river at Arundel that have gotten so used to humans that they are comfortable docile around them, even when they've got young. Dogs, however, receive very different treatment.
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.
The ones on the boating pond come up to you on the land if you're feeding them, today that one came right to the edge with her Cygnets where I was standing waiting to see if I had anything for them. People behind me with their dogs stopped and put them on the lead, when I moved on the Swans swam out a bit.
He willnae tak' a drink! I think he's deid! , on the other hand though A Midgie in yir hand is worth twa up yir kilt.
Well that was a busy weekend. Took the camper to the Dene Steam rally. The weather was a bit iffy, but more windy that wet. As well as showing the van in a line up of old cars, I was also helping run the I Wood Love That stall with my sister and her partner Simon. Because of this, I didn't get as many pics as I would have liked, so some of the strange double pics below are taken from the I Wood Love That facebook page.
Jose in the line up on Saturday - there were more cars on Sunday, but I could get any pics - too busy.
Traction engines and steam rollers and lorries
Shouldn't this one have a stolen dinosaur on the back?
The woody stall (with Simon having a cuppa)
Wooden message plaques that Simon and my sister make
Display of my stuff
We did a pyrography display to try and pull the punters in.....so here's me and my bald patch
Not loads, sold a few things but the weather affected the turnout a bit. At least we were in a marque, so relatively dry and warm. A a result of the show I've already had someone ask me to do a commission plaque with a cow on it....Yup a cow Could be interesting.
SJ I have done a few vehicles. I sold a showmans traction engine I had done. I have also recently done a couple of car commissions - a Morris Traveller and a Merc F1 car. The jacket is my favourite hippie jacket! Nice and warm felt lining.
Mad, I have not been to Camper Jam. It was rained off last year. I tend to go to more local day shows. When we camp with the kids we tend to have an awning and more stuff generally, so setting up just for one or two nights is a bit of a pain.
