Learn From Your Elders

My Nan has only ever given me one piece of advice of the romantic variety

"Never fall for an enthusiast"

This being my Grandfather is her basis for her advice.

For your visual delights and future happiness, this is William!
William is a fully operating 6th of the normal size traction engine, and has taken 6 years to bulid from hand.

Do not fall for someone who dedicates their life to creating something that cannot possibly return the time and effort.
Traction engines are fun and everything as are stamps and other things people get fanatical about but people are what is important.

He does look cute though, bless the elderly!

  1. It's a shame you cut out Malcolm the watering can enthusiast from the left side of the picture. I'm sure he would have wanted to be photographed with his pride and joy too. And how long did it take the crowd to notice the caravan was on fire?

    Malcolm looked far too similar to Ian Brody to be legally allowed.

    Notice? Notice, what do you mean notice? Have you never been to a Welsh Steam Rally?

    Tradition states that a selection of English tourists are to be torched in a suitably enclosed environment (Public Health'n'Safety Act 1782 Paragraph 4 subsection 4.9823)

    Rob was very lucky to have survived, had he been wandering about on his own he'd have got burnt by more than the sun (yes you can get sunburnt in Wales)

  3. I'd imagine Rob is easily burnt by sun. Sorry I missed the steam ralley! Even more sorry that it was cos I'm doing my project. POO.
