Hi all,

I awoke this morning to a lot of noise and activity outside. I went through to the kitchen, couldn't find the kettle, turned on the radio but there was a lot of background interference and they were playing some old songs.

I went outside to find the neighbours already standing in the street. I noticed a group of 4 or 5 boys playing, only one of them had a old black bike. They were wearing lederhosen and had no shoes on. One of the boys had his proud possesion outside, a toy train.
I walked over and asked if I could have a look. He excitedly showed me it, a clockwork tinplate train with Märklin stamped on it.

One of the neighbours was reading a paper, the date was 23rd January 1941.

I asked what was happening and was told, they had heard that Oberstleutnant Adolf Galland was going to fly past Freiburg in his Messerschmitt Bf109f-2 on his way to another daring mission shooting down British Spitfires and Hurricanes.

The droning got louder and then you could see the fighter plane, and just as quickly it was gone.

But the noise was getting louder, becoming more of a deep growl.


Suddenly, I was awake, eyes open, the first thing I saw was the flat screen on the bedroom wall.

I got up and looked out the bedroom windows, my son Paul had started the Firebird and was reversing it out the garage.
I thought, those new race cylinder heads have added some grunt to that big block chevy.

Standing there, I realised just how much life had changed......

Ian.

Hi Peter,

Thanks, but it was an American who eventually got the better of him, shot down his plane and he sustained a knee injury that was to halt his combat flying.

At that point he had shot down 107 enemy planes.

He died in 1996.

Hi all,

Well, first of all, Ray did say there was trouble coming. Scared

The problem is, they have landed on the wrong layout. Smile

The word Exterminate comes to mind, so I kept well out of the range of the beam distributor.

Look out Ray, they are heading you're way.

Hi Peter,

Sorry, but those Dalek's are much more scarey.

I used to have to hide behind the chairs when Doctor Who was on, but the wife and teenage kids told me to stop it. Smile

Hi all,

So, I bought a couple of 4509 banana vans from Germany last week and they arrived yesterday afternoon. (photo's soon.)

Got them unpacked and they look to be in the usual condition for there age.

What I did notice immediately, was that one van was easy 3 times heavier than the other.(interesting.)

So I opened it up to uncover the hidden cargo. (no, it wasn't boxes of banana's.)

What do you think was inside it??? Smile
