That must be frustrating. Hope it heals soon.

Thanks for your best wishes, as you can see on the furgoncino thread, I have not been entirely idle !

Even though I've been quiet, the Appia gets used all the time. She always gets lots of smiles .....

We've been to a couple of vide-greniers (village car boot sale - sort of !) recently and picked up some nice goodies.

I have not yet found an original tool bag for the furgoncino, but I found this nice leather Harley Davidson saddlebag which fits snugly. Just needs a clean

Yesterday I came across the "MotoMeter" tyre pressure gauge. I've not seen one of these before

Finally a couple of lovely, old "Michelin Forum" tyre levers which I think date from the 60's

You can still pick these things up for less than 5 euros, but you have to rummage through piles of baby clothes, broken Tupperware and enameled enema kits .......

But on the Appia front, I want to fit a new head soon. Typical Appia - smokes quite a lot so I have prepped the head with new guides (with Fulvia valve seal mod), valves and skim. Shouldn't take long to do, but I am reluctant to take her off the road because she is so nice to drive !

A nice little haul there Simon!!!

I know what you mean about being a pleasure to drive. Harry (grandson) and I went out today just to drive around .... I am still seeking the knock and it was just so lovely to drive her again. A totally different experience to the Flavia, the Appia is so light and responsive in comparison!!

Like that Motometer. I shall have to look harder at vide greniers. I'm always looking for the Rolex at the bottom of a biscuit tin full of broken 70's watches.

Don't bother. I think the used look is perfectly honourable for an everyday runabout Lancia.

Here you are David !

Up in the vineyard this morning, doing some de-budding before the (much needed) rain arrives from Spain tomorrow

We are organic wine-makers, hence the vegetation between and around the vines. Several reasons for the roses at the end of the vines, firstly they look nice, but there is a theory that they act as an early warning for any diseases (vine's , not mine !)

Very nice indeed. Plus you've given me an idea - I'll tell people I'm an organic gardener, hence the vegetation between all the flowers.

Stanley, I think you might just start a trend there!!! I know a lot of people who are looking for a new excuse for an 'untidy' garden!!!! And this organic excuse comes with brownie points!!!!

Simon,
When we visited a vineyard in Portugal we were told the rose were to help with pollination  Huh?
