Reminiscing

Usually people look at photos to remind them of their past I think.
Hans on the other hand is in the workshop right now, with a torch, looking into all his cupboards at tools, drills, chucks, all his precision engineering stuff.
"This I bought to make ?? for ?? do you remember" there's stuff in there he hasn't used since before we moved here, but it had to come with us, `just in case`
If he sold all the tooling he has at the price paid for it I reckon we could retire

Mee too Jan.
I have just taken a trailer load of stuff to the dump. Apart from old RV and Motorhome stuff we are trying to clear out a few shelves and filing cabinets.
I'm chucking out sack fulls of paper but everything my wife looks at is a 'memory' and cherished.??
Although I do still have a large drawer full of photographs I refer to now and again.

Ray.

The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. http://raynipper.com

A SHED, it´s a proper workshop with real machines in, not toys Jean.
10 mtrs X 5 meters attached to the house with central heating because the machinery mustn't get cold or it will rust.

My father had one like that.

And I thought all men could turn their hand to anything.

And then I married my husband......

Can Hans come and give Chris some "how to tidy your workshop" lessons pleeeease?

Chris has all his plumbing tools in there together with, car repair equipment, expensive mowing equipment and heavy duty chainsaws etc etc. I decided to mow the lawn yesterday. Could I find the petrol can to fill up the walk behind mower? I phoned him, as he was building a huge perimeter fence for someone in the village, and asked for directions to the petrol can. Of course, when I found it, it was empty as was the diesel can I had already found. By the time I had gone to the garage, experienced some rude and aggressive behaviour, yet again, from a young female driver I decided to walk the dog!

Is Hans able to get his workshop insured Jan? We had a terrible job. Most home insurance companies just allow a couple of hundred quid for the contents of the shed. Mind you, it would take a strong team to shift his benches etc.
