Well that was a productive afternoon   :D

Have spent the past few weeks sorting the garage, loft etc and generally de-cluttering the house.

The first wave of boxes retrieved from the rafters mainly contained old games consoles and games which when put on Gumtree resulted in a nice collection of N gauge tokens. Members of the NGF Facebook group assisted me in spending them wisely.

The second wave consisted of mainly larger bits from my childhood and were almost all impractical to post.

So I found a car boot sale which has a decent level of organisation and reputation and today myself, Mrs Skyline and Mini Skyline managed to shift the vast majority. I therefore am able to purchase some more tiny trains!

When done well, selling at a car boot is a great afternoon and you get to see all sorts of people as well.

Mini Skyline (aka “The Gremlin”) was most popular and succeeded in hooking in many wives / partners who’s partners then went on to spend money  ;D

 About to set out....

Not for railways....

Not for modelling....


But for the 3 Rivers Race 2019. http://www.3rr.uk/


Not for the start line,  but for Hickling broad,  where I'm running a guardship,,  where we will count the 100 boats,  as they sail round the mark. 
I'll be awake until,  about 15:00 tomorrow .

Race starts at 11:00... 
No further messages are likely as our mooring place is beyond Wi-Fi range...

Having turned 60 last month I just discovered my prescriptions are now free :thumbsup:

The downside, however, is the Government are now officially interested in my bottom and it's various activities.  Getting 3 stool samples into an NHS envelope checks my aim at least as much as bowel cancer :goggleeyes:

At least someone in government knows you exist. I got one two days after my 60th and had one every 2 years since.
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

Come on Mick, you must have had 2 of these kits by now. I always think of the completed kits being sent en mass through the post and the great train robbers getting sacks of them instead of cash.

More likely to be sent en mess

I gave up on them after the second letter telling me I was clear, but then goes on to say that you might still have it as results are not 100%.

too much arsing about if they cannot give a definitive answer IMHO.

was tempted to send 3 samples of Husky poo, but in the end just couldn't be bothered.

Dear all,

I too received the aforementioned 'kit' soon after my 60th. What a palaver?
But it was the recent missive from the NHS asking me to join a research survey as I was a 'prime' candidate for colon cancer etc. made me feel very pensive about my future, the wording must have been written by an honours graduate in marketing but no common sense!
I had another glass of red and everything seemed OK.

Love to all

Steve

I agree it’s not 100% accurate, but colon cancer killed my dad when he was 62, so I don’t mind the testing.
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.
