Title: I've taken up croquet
Post by: Jim on March 31, 2021, 07:22:29 pm
I've taken up croquet, I thought steam engines were addictive, they have NOTHING on croquet!

I need to buy a heap of croquet gear to be really competitive (there's a lot of young croqueters and I need to beat them) so
all of my steam and H&m engines and all accessories (everything) will be getting listed very shortly, heaps of bargains and I'll pay all postage costs.

Do those 51's have rivetted boilers?  If Bruce gets the gold, can I have the rivet's? I'm collecting rivet's now.
Wait a minute, did you say croquet?  I thought you said you were taking up CROCHET.
