Where are we all going tomorrow?

For me it's a trip of 55 miles to pick up an ebay purchase that I won over a month ago. The seller was happy to keep it until I could travel.

Anyone else have a journey they've been waiting to make?

    Depends on how you define "essential".
    It was acceptable to many, against the rules for most. (Most is a guess).
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Not going anywhere.

    WFH and the in-laws are coming to sit in the garden so they can see their new granddaughter and the grandson they haven't seen properly for months.

    I managed to combine the pick-up (an anvil for my son) with a nice day out in the countryside.

    The car wondered what the hell was going on! It's the first time it's done more than a few miles at a time since October.

    What does your son want with an anvil?

    He likes to do a bit of blacksmithing. I made a him a forge a couple of Christmases ago using two steel car wheels joined with a pillar, one for the base and the other makes a dish at the top. Fitted with a compressor to give the draught.

    He's got a big bar of metal with a flat on it at the moment to hammer on, but needed a bigger working surface, and an anvil has a horn on it so he can curve things around it.

    Nah. It doesn't have ACME written on it.

    Follow on question.
    Is a roadrunner flattened by an anvil that appealing a dish to a coyote? 😉

    Over the hills and far far away. By bicycle.
    Hope the wind eases.

    (Although, restrictions still apply in Jockland).
