One day, after the offspring has graduated and is out on their own, you'll open your wallet and find a twenty. You'll stare at it for a moment then say to yourself, "Where the hell did you come from?"

Interesting note: Apparently BF has gone the way of much of public discourse, and banned any images of devices that accelerate projectiles via expanding gasses. I posted several such images and they were promptly removed. Apparently the mods only look at newly-posted images. I won't make any other comment, just good to know...

About three years ago, I finally bought a car that I really wanted.........To hell with practicality and all that other sensible stuff!!
Been having a blast since, modding it up, exactly to how I want it and driving it!

I also have an "on and off" hobby collecting diecast model cars and plane models for about 20 years now......
This one is of a 1923 Ford Trimotor and a 1930's "Count Trossi" Mercedes Roadster, both in 1:24 scale.....
I still buy models in 1:18 and 1:24 scale once in a while to add to my collection, but I'm pretty much getting close to having all the must haves I had on my list already.....

Here's the Porsche / BMW /Auto Union part of my collection in 1:18 scale.

I've been learning accordion slowly during lockdown.
I played for about 3 months around 40 years back during summer holidays from univerity, then the accordion was 'lost' somewhere in my parents house.
Then I found this on Ebay a couple of years back and overhauled it fully:

1959 Hohner Lucia IV P (LMMH 96 bass)

Roll forwards a couple of years and I've now got 4 accordions.
Quite handy for wet weather.
