First off HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to all you Dads out there!
|How I like to see myself.|
|How the heirs' do?|
It was the junior heir's 10th birthday this weekend and the Viscountess was flapping like one of Mathyoo's 'Magnifihens' (http://mathyoo28mm.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/meet-argentavis-magnificens.html) which forced me to retreat into my man cave and escape the chaos. Which got me to thinking about my coppering project. and so it started.
Peeling off some flash, cutting off back backs, webbing and filling in gaps. I then smoothed the boots and rough bits with 'wood glue'. They're now drying s let's see how it goes.
In the end we took the heir and a few of his friends to the 'Crocky Trail', just outside Chester (http://www.crockytrail.co.uk/). It was a great day out. Basically a farmer has hacked out a footpath around a couple of his fields that follows a stream. He's then built bridges, wobbly and solid, swings and tunnels into the banks. It's the stuff people of a certain age did in their youth, and the kids run wild. There are all sorts of rides and bits and pieces as well. You can stay there all day for £11.00 and bring a picnic. I'd recommend it to any family group visiting this neck of the woods.
Well you get the idea.
Have a good day you guys.
