Dean known him from when he started but not seen him for many years he leaves it to the lads likes to go diving in the North sea . Problem is the traffic up there its bad to get round that area in and out . Its many many years ago he loaned me a electric wire connection so I could climb into my loft . He is on to his 4th place of business . The 2nd place was near the Royal arms . While standing waiting my turn the mog parked outside . He remarked " kids next to mog touching it etc" . I was out in seconds bellowing at them "go away children" . They off in milli seconds . I got back to the shop and everyone in stitches, never seen anyone move that fast nor bellow that loud in a strange dialect.

Last time I was in my local scrap yard, the owner caught some lads pilfering. Fair play, he gave them the choice of a good kicking or calling the scuffers. They opted for the kicking and Psycho Mark did the honours.

Owner offered me a cup of tea whilst Psycho Mark was going about his task with great relish and charged me 12 quid for the Peugeot starter motor I had in my hand

We were in Halfords 2 weeks ago picking up child seats. They had offers in baskets and I bought two quick detailer sprays at £3 each.
There are some decent buys but depends what you are after.
I bought oil there as it was on offer and got enough for two oil changes.

You do not have to be that clever to get a trade card at Halfords.

My best ver visit to a Scrap Yard. !!

In conversation with the owner at the door to the porta-cabin, a gent walked up and asked how much for the headlamp he was holding ?

The owner looked and said "£20 mate"as i recall it was when the big plastic lamps had started to appear on Renault etc

The Guy puffed and said 'will you take a £10 for it', The owner who i new was quite rich turned to the bench next to him and picked up a large hammer smashed the Lamp to bits then said 'now i will'
I couldnt stop laughing as the Guy walked off in discussed

The owner just commented 'greedy b*****d.

There is a large scrap yard at Peterlee but what a nice lot they don't speak to you . Wonder if it has anything to do with them sucking lemons .
One over in the next village BUT it has a notice beware of the dog on the gate . I went in for a car part for a mate looked for the dog and spotted s small terrier . After a look round spotted a car removed the bit and walked back to the caravan . As I went past a Fiesta a large wolf like thing dived out of a half closed car window. But could not get out THANK GOD .I felt my arse give way , so i thought and left Usain Bolt's record standing . I was into the caravan before the door had opened . Everyone rofl. "Why the hell did you not warn me you B" " What and miss that" Went home for a shower and a clean pair of pants .

Well Halfords did a good thing today. Credit where it is due.

I had a pair of their heavy duty jump start cables (I have two Morgans what can I say) which have rested in the garage for a good time. On using them to jump the good lady's Mini this morning the spring loaded terminal clip just shattered when opening to fit over the terminal. Bits went everywhere. I don't know who was more annoyed, me because of the mess or SWMBO as it meant she was going nowhere.

I went into Halfords and showed them the otherwise pristine untouched item. I did not have the receipt and the label had long since fallen off. They did a like for like swap on the spot. Well knock me over with a feather.


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.
