nice red painting for this boat. I like that :)
pøm', ~ Yes nothing quite like a splash of red to bring a shot to life Pom ~ kindest regards and thank for Liking this :))) ~ nick
steve drury ~ Sorry Steve ~ somehow I over looked your comment from a couple of days ago ~ so a big thank you now and best wishes ~ nick
.... Nothing better than a splash of Red Ale in the riverside pub after having taken a few shots in the heat of the day! :))
NICK KNACK ~ Would that be Ruddles by any chance Nick ? ~ I was gone long before any of the pubs were even thinking of opening their doors :) but it would be a good spot to indulge :))
.... Is that what they call it? Personally I am not a pub goer and rarely go to a pub, perhaps if I come across one in the countryside after a walk but only a beer and no more or else I would never get back legless! :)) Ciao, Nick
NICK KNACK ~ In the days of smokey pubs I never went near them, now all of the smokers sit outside and ruin the gardens and streets too ~ Hmm
Nick Lets ban people smoking outside! :) You sound very health conscious . I did give it up quite a long time ago, it was in the days when safety belt were optional and some cars had only one side mirror! :))
NICK KNACK ~ Great idea Nick ~ like you us reformed smokers are the worst and like you it was very many years ago and lots of cars had no side mirrors and no seat belts:))
... What no seat belt at all ?... I only meant optional for wear, well in that case you are probably talking of earlier times when the side indicator went up like an arm and the doors opened the opposite way , well in that case sorry Nick that's before my time, I am only Just 28 and 1/2 :))
NICK KNACK ~ My first car was a 1932 Daimler which cost me £50, but I only had it for a few weeks before getting a 1949 MG Y type then things went downhill from there on for a bit :)) I can't quite remember when seat belts became compulsory, but pretty early on I think ~ why I'm telling all this to a youngster like you though is beyond me :)))
... Meaningful conversation Nick thats what it is :) £50 for a Daimler, thats cheep even my SUNBEAM TIGER cost me more!... A' 1949 MG Y type I remember it well it was white with wire wheel perhaps I should say Pam does remember it well, she fell out of it when the door suddenly opened on a bend in St. James W.1 Summer of 1968. I have a picture sitting in this car while in Carnaby street not a good quality picture but I night upload it just for fun and then wipe it off!... Ah! those were the days when driving was fun, all we have now is those dreadful "4 wheel drive things" and nowhere to go! :)) Nick
NICK KNACK ~ I still love driving Nick and find it fun (at times) ~ I remember the Sunbeam Tiger ~ The MG was the saloon version not the sporty TC, mine was maroon with no wire wheels :( A good passion wagon though) Now don't knock Chelsea Tractors please ~ I love my Landi and sometimes find places to go, that not too many other vehicles can reach :))
Nick, I meant fun as in driving on nearly empty roads not in "car parks." Petrol used to be cheap then and there were no speed cameras only the freedom of the road... Now wherever one goes everywhere is log-jammed with huge Chelsea tractors taking their kids to school or just doing their shopping in Waitrose and then banging their doors onto your car - I am not knocking Nick they are ! :))
NICK KNACK, ~ Who is that knocking on your door? :)) ~ You live in the wrong area Nick ~ It is quite possible to find many areas of England where traffic is light and the lanes a pleasure to explore ~ but yes I take and accept your point ~ at least we had the opportunity to enjoy those distant days ~ but since I grew up in North Dorset ~ there were not exactly many cars anywhere and I cycled the roads in complete freedom :))
Well, Nick, come and visit the place perhaps then you will not think that, although you won't see much of the place because we are tucked in and spread over quite a large area the high street and perhaps just the mill will give you the wrong impression, if you do park in Waitrose car park but make sure you don't park next to a wag or an idiot ! :))
NICK KNACK ~ Nick I was just kidding ~ I know that a man of your taste would find a great bolt hole :)
... Well that's better I though you were serious! :) Although If I might say, you don't appear to be doing too badly either! ;) Winter is back!
NICK KNACK, ~ Just a modest hovel, but very grateful to be occupying it :))) Yes a very dull day, some decent rainfall would be good though ~ we need it ~ well the gardens and water boards do ~ enjoy your day Nick ~ Ciao nick
