step 1 complete

Postby retropants » Tue Oct 02, 2018 3:33 pm

sorry, this, at first seems like it is totally unrelated to gardening, but bear with me!
I have finally mustered to courage to list my beloved but knackered Triumph Herald on Car & Classic classifieds. It's taken me ages to do it, forever procrastinating, but he's listed, with sorry looking photos, so fingers crossed.
This is the first stage of relocating my veg growing from the allotment to my own garden. I will probably only be visiting the allotment a handful of times more before we say goodbye to the soil we've worked since 1991. My parents are moving next week, which is why we are giving it up.
The poor car has sat (covered) at the bottom of the garden since I moved in 20 years ago, so better late than never! It's going to be sad to say goodbye to Harry the Herald, but someone else with the time and skills can repair and restore him hopefully.

One careful owner,

now in need of some TLC. The owner that is, sadly the car might be beyond economic repair I think

The danger when people start to believe their own publicity is that they often fall off their own ego.

At least travelling under the guise of the Pa Snip Enterprise gives me an excuse for appearing to be on another planet

I think you are right Pa! However, I've had a lot of interest already today, so you never know.

The people that are interested have the money to restore. Don't think of giving it up but giving it a chance of a new beginning & who knows even topping up the coffers for you! Play it cool - wait & watch for the first one wanting to view!

I have a taker! But we are currently playing telephone ping-pong! He wants to take it without seeing it, for his son to work on. He's seen the photos, and I've told him it's not in a good way, but that hasn't put him off!

And whilst you,re still at the allotment, if you have some suitable transport, maybe you should try and bring home a few bagfuls of your nicely nurtured and matured allotment soil tomperk up your new veg patch in your garden!
