Ok so not quite the next day but close!

A teaser, this is it from the back, for a change i decided to clean up the back to make it all shiny. Usually it will oxidise in a few days but as it was going to be delivered within hours i made it shine.

There it is in all its glory. I think it came out quite well. At least people who saw it could see it was a flying tractor and even read the letters at the bottom. It got put on the wedding present table without a note so even now maybe the happy couple are wondering who the hell gave them a bit of old water tank.

One of three pics i took at the wedding on me phone, i was going to take pics with our nice new camera but... well that's a tragic story to be told another time.

This is the Tumulus , with ring of flowers flags, drummers and that lady is the person who officiated...here she is lecturing us all on what to do/shout/sing etc. Right in the background is the official photographer who wore a fetching ankle length pink tartan skirt, trilby and beard....Behind me was a seven foot rasta, black suit, bowler hat and curious "camberwell carrot" cigarettes.

I very much feared a show of "circus skills " might break out at any time, but we were lucky and none occurred while we were there.
While im at it i bought a new set of letter punches. You may remember i lost the letter E on the last set which made things rather difficult to punch. Especially Jon Of Penryn! This cost me a tenner and is marked Rolson quality tools, which is a laugh, Rolson is no where near quality and arguable not  really tools, but it will work ok for me until i loose another letter, but then maybe i can punch using both sets. Making the punches words look rather like a 1970's ransom note...

i wondered off a bit...

So what's happened? Not a lot to be truthful. Been wandering about been distracted, been having a rest from copper. But Saturday (its Thursday evening now) we have to go to a friends wedding, they are getting married on their farm, in fact on an ancient earthwork (though the farmer reckons it more likely where a previous farmer buried a combine harvester). So what could be better for a wedding present than a bowl ah....well a lot of things, but i work with what i have so a bowl is what they are getting.  This is the failed Pin Up bowl. For days i have been seeking inspiration and found none. Until i chanced on the ancient farm tractor and thought it coudl do with a lift...Here it is with wings! As you can see its just pen now, and it might not work out, but hell i have other bowls, ones im supposed to be selling.....report back tomorrow see if it works in any way at all.
