    Cool pic Vince :cool: :) :thumbsup:

    You are right Vince, I never had pocket-money as a kid, so went out and got myself a morning and evening (2 evening deliveries on a Saturday - local sports paper) newspaper delivery round when I was 11, sometimes took an additional round, and also delivered a local free paper once a week on a completely different round. Did this until I left school at 16, and became an apprentice mechanic. Despite the fact I'm not 60 yet, it certainly wasn't abnormal at the time, but now I look at 16 year-olds, and they seem far too young to be doing a hard manual job :eek: That is largely because they still look like kids to me, but I know folks, who are still supporting their kids, even though the kids are in their 30's :rolleyes:

    I have just had my first square meal in a while! :D ;) :thumbsup:

    :D :thumbsup:

    Nice of you to roll up with some timely pie shots my friend! :D Excellent pics David :) :thumbsup:

    :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks Harvey, nice to see your Barlows are making progress! :D :thumbsup: That's fascinating, and what an incredible piece, and memento of your friend :) You're not a bad-looking feller! Great pic :D :thumbsup:

    Jack I'm only 46 but was working night-shifts on London's fresh produce markets when I was 11. I told one of these young modern types about that once and they accused me of lying...:rolleyes:

    Voakes pies are always timely...:D Harrogate Farmers Market on Thursday. :thumbsup:

    Thank you Dwight. It was a bit of a claustrophobic ordeal. Could only breath through a straw, and had to sit still for sometime, as the plaster was applied, all over my face, and then waiting for it dry sufficiently. At the point the mask was pulled, I thought, “Boy, that’s cool,” not realizing his intent to make it something more.

    Wonderful look at your AC.

    @Jack Black Thank you Jack. Certainly don’t look like that now.:)

    Yes, probably totally unbelievable to them :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the link :D :thumbsup:

    You're not selling it! :D ;) :thumbsup:

    That's what the mask is for Harvey! ;) :D :thumbsup: I just have to pull my jacket collar up so I don't scare the kids! :confused: :D :thumbsup:

    Yet another very fine photographic tour. Well done. Thank you. :) Your Hartshead keeps looking better and better :thumbsup:

    :D ROFL :D

    Great pic. Love stained glass. And the mask is OUTSTANDING! Grats on the wonderful keepsake. Beautiful :)
    Also, thanks for the updates on the "Travels of the Hartshead" - saves me from searching the tracking number :rolleyes:
    LATER: I gave in, looked up the tracking number and here's what I found:
    "Your item has been received at ISC SAN FRANCISCO (USPS), United States of America. More information will be available as it travels through the network."
    :D:D:D Now to get through Customs, then to Fresno and then to Coarsegold. Might make it here by mid week :cool:

    Good day to all :)
    Had some of these with the coffee and cereal earlier this morning :cool:

    Happy Saturday Guardians! I hope everyone is well and wanted to thank you all for the kind words on the photos and upcoming knee surgery. Attached is a few very long overdue family photos.

    Great shot of the family - very cool slip :thumbsup: and beautiful country :cool:
    The most I've every had done on a knee was a 'scope which was a piece of cake. It doesn't give out or lock up anymore.
    Just some aches now and then, depending on weather changes.
    Hope your procedure is as successful as mine. :thumbsup:
