  1. I sat on my lathe this morning and gave myself a nasty turn....

    I still say it's a Garden Wolf, from that single picture. - even if a picture doesn't show the markings, the front legs are a guide.

    That looks like a Garden Wolf to me....equally horrid.....
  4. Stares into camera: "Mine, I tell you, mine!!!!!!" FADEOUT. So ends the tale of the half-crazed completionist that lurks inside _all_ members of this website......:)
  5. I'm having real trouble coping with that penny. My coin envy meter needle is pegging the top of the scale.

    I was the second bidder on the F41- always the bridesmaid.....
  8. Ah.. thanks for that. If that clause didn't exist then the proceedings would be farcical!
  9. Ah right- I was 850, but an absentee. Does this mean that If I had bid, say 851, then I have got second on the grid?
  10. I was second bid on 1994 - the Freeman 76. I'm glad I didn't attend, if reports (above) of how the auction is handled are true....

    penny 1874h F76

    If anyone has a spare one, I'd love one. I've virtually given up finding one by the usual routes. Anything considered- still needing the last of the main 1874 types after all these years is driving me mad. I have some spare 1874H F69's if some one wants one..

    Archie Piscopal ran a pub in Dulwich in the 1980's if I remember correctly...

    Thanks Richard - I was the 'room bidder'...nearly there and in the ball park. Any more plus premium and i would have had to sleep in the shed....... Again.

    I tried to keep up standards by also including a plural compound noun....:) As a certain N. Molesworth said: A tool shed is where you keep tools A bike shed is where you keep bikes. A watershed is where you keep water.

    As usual, I sea the Punmeisters General have started their outboards and are going overboard plumbing the depths. It was only a matter of time for the jokes to hit rock bottom. I'm not going to join in. I don't give in to pier pressure. I'm not that gullible.
  23. Sir Ben Stokes?
  24. Ooh me head. Barbecue at a friend's place. As the tension rose, the measures of Malt got bigger....
  25. or indeed "this one's seen"....:)
