    They are not cheap, Can cost between about $300-$1000 to have them fitted, depending on the size of your car and tires you buy.:eek: More if you have a 4 wheel drive and want to go off-road.
    That is a dangerous combination.:p:oops:.
    Hope everyone has a good and safe week, take care.:)

    I took the Big Camera out for an Edward Weston homage. As usual, my HHB was on hand.

    Thanks Jack. The background is just the scrap bin at work.
    Judging by the pics you posted today, it looks like you had a pleasant walk.
    The pics of your lunch looked pretty good too.... but more than a Hartshead. :eek::D

    Yes indeed David, Hump Day/ Wednesday is the half way point. If I make it through Wednesday I figure I can make it throught the rest of the week. It looks like you were well provisioned for your mid week turning point.

    Howdy Dwight, good to see ya around these parts.
    I'm diggin' your photo themes. :thumbsup:

    Nice work dressing that one up, Jeff. :thumbsup:

    I will leave y'all with a few pics from this week.

    Hey Guardians, on our walk this afternoon we bumped into a bunch of British Soldiers preparing for battle at Chrysler's Farm.

    My HHB was quick to make friends with some of the soldiers :) at the encampment.

    hello folks, I just received this from A. Wright yesterday after about a month's wait...well worth it and I must say this thing has extreme attention to detail, firm walk, razor sharp and super tight both blades and just plain handsome...I ordered one with the spear pen but received this and was disappointed but I will keep it as the craftmanship is outstanding and maybe the large spear will compliment the lambsfoot well...cheers gang!

    Fine photo Dave :) :thumbsup:

    I figured so Kevin, great idea to use it as background :cool: You take great pics, and those are another three examples :thumbsup:

    Yeah, I had a good day, but it tired me out! :D I had to climb over a couple of gates, and a high(ish) stone wall, and probably used a few muscles that haven't been exercised in a while :D And then there was lunch! :eek: :D We both had paella for main course, which I haven't had in a while, and always reminds me of happy days in Barcelona. A bit pricey for a pub-restaurant, but I've not spent much on eating-out this year ') It tasted better than a Hartshead Barlow anyway! :rolleyes: :D :thumbsup:

    Cool pics Dan, looks like those Redcoats are just making some tea! :D :thumbsup:

    I'm glad you got a good one Mike, but bizarre they made it up with the wrong blade configuration - only in Sheffield! :rolleyes: Welcome to the Guardians :) :thumbsup:

    Good morning Guardians and all. Hope the rest of the weekend goes well for everyone. Going to kick back today as yesterday was a busy one and like @Jack Black I used a few muscles that I haven't used in awhile whilst I was working in our yard:eek: and now I'm paying for it. HHB is in the pocket once again.

    Indeed Jack :)

    But here is the funny thing.
    There was a sign about the encampment that said at the end:
    " Have a closer look to see what the soldiers are doing"

    I glanced at them for a sec and thought
    " I don't know, just chilling I guess"
    But when you saw the pic you knew right away even before being asked the question :thumbsup::)

    I hope it was Yorkshire tea :D

    That's funny Dan! :D I believe that during WW1, the British artillery guns would stop at 4.00pm, so they could have tea. I've also read numerous accounts from US troops in various theatres during WW2, who were surprised that even while being shelled, or otherwise engaged, the British 'Tommy' would take every opportunity to make a brew! :D Mind you, I'm reminded of the Ewan McGregor character in the film Black Hawk Down, who, amid Hellish conditions, is brewing a good cup of Joe :) :thumbsup:

    You mean your having a British summer. :D

    I could swear you've got a little person stood underneath all these bridges with a huge net. :D

    Thanks Jack. Great pics yaself, especially the foody ones. :D:thumbsup:

    That's a pretty potent ice cream for sure. :thumbsup:

    Thanks! I'm pleased I actually remembered something I've been told on here.:) But as I've not worked since March I can't really say which day would be my hump day. :rolleyes:
    Great work place shots there. :thumbsup:

    Great pictures Dan, I was reading about the War of 1812 just a couple of weeks ago.
    Do you know if there original cannon?

    Looks good. I didn't know they did them with a spearpoint. :thumbsup:

    I read of a similar story from our most recent ding dong in Afghanistan. Some combat with the Taliban with an IFOR? force, and in between the occasional RPG and sniper exchanges the U.S troops were amazed to find the Brits calmly brewing up.

    I hope every is having (or has had) a nice Sunday.:thumbsup:

    Good morning all. Headed up to the mail boxes later with the Rosewood "Big-un" with a compass to find my way and my SOS lighter in case I need to call for help.:eek: Actually, I won't be able to call anyone for help as there is no cell phone signal where I live.:rolleyes:
