Grae Retiring Thread
#1

I'm 60 and all my joints hurt

 

I'm going on the wallaby, grey nomad, escape, I've packed the big trailer and the ute

 

the ladies have already taken what they want so

 

everything else is going

 

I am putting all the depot tools equipment on Gumtree over the next few weeks

 

The depot is located in Seaford/Carrum Downs Vic

 

the gems are hidden on purpose and vaguely described

If you don't know what they are you don't need them

 

PM me or if you have my number txt or phone bother me

Graeme

How big is the timber lathe, I’m looking for one smaller the better, but it would need to be sent via post if that’s possible.

too big to transport, cheaper to find one locally.

No, it's hard work.

Years of stuff to deal with.

I love the conversations that go like this

 

them: it's really old, i can get a new one for $20

 

dad: it was made 70 years ago and still works, I'll get your $20 broken one from the hard waste for free in a couple of months because it never worked properly at all.

You can't have it,

them: you said $50

dad: sorry I did say $50 but you went down $40 I only went up $10

dad: OK $50

them: $20

dad: $70 and not a chance after that one, I'll pay someone else $5 to take it away and you used all your chances.
