    Can I ask a favour ?

    If you take stuff to sell, please have a list of prices. I'm fed up with asking how much something is only to be told "I don't know, the owner is away but will be back in a few minutes" only to return a few minutes later find he's either not returned or the item has sold !!!!

    I thought that I might get bought or made a cuppa myself this year for a change :D , anyway I havent said I'm going yet, after sorting the roof today I scrapped around for stuff to sell and came up with nowt much to my wifes annoyance.
    Not in a very good mood at moment. I have lost a 1GB card from my camera with a load of pictures I took yesterday on a train excursion around the Midlands plus the pictures I took at Appleday :(

    I feel your pain Martin , In august we were at one of the bigger rallies over here, which i took 400+ photo's , came home and put the sd card into the pc,and somehow the card had formatted :cry:
    I did try to recover the picture's using software but it did'nt work .

    :oops: Oops, just realised what I'd put. Meant to say anyone else that wants to sell some junk or is that what I tend to come home with :?
    Glad you found your card Martin. I did a stupid thing once, visiting a collection. Taking the camera out I decided to change the card, put the old one on the roof of the car and completely forgot it. Wasnt until I got back to my mates house that I realised what I'd done. :oops: Amazingly the chap went and looked the next day and found it! It had managed to stay on whilst I turned round and bumped along the track only sliding off as I accelerated down the lane. I bet you couldnt repeat that!

    Coat, hat, gloves, scarf, thick socks. They all help but eventually the Enstone cold will win. The last few years even the bacon van has been absent. Get there early and expect to leave at about lunchtime, generally with a smile, a boot full of toys and a lighter wallet.

    My wife has a theory that Enstone and the like are just permanently recycling stuff. Folks buy things and a few years later they re-appear for sale again. Having been going for some years, there's a certain logic in what she says. It could have something to do with the same folks always being there as well. It's still an event to be recommended though.

    See you all there.
