Another Busy Weekend

Yesterday morning was supposed to be a time of domesticity as a result of being out all the previous weekend, but on the spur of the moment we decided to go up to Oberon to the Steam and Vintage Fair.  They were having a street parade and we like a good parade.

Oberon usually does this well.

There was a good variety of vehicles.

After the parade had finished we headed over to the main display area where there were more vehicles of every description.

I had fun taking photos of grills and emblems.

We took Olga out for the run.  She went well.

She is now sporting her name on the rear of the sidecar.  Please just ignore the fact that she needs a bit of a clean.

We headed for home at lunch time as the weather was starting to close in.  We didn’t worry about the wet weather gear as it isn’t that far.  We were watching it all the way home and trying to work out if we would miss the rain or not.

We rode into the shed, it started to spit while walking to the house and then, within a minute, the skies opened.

Boy, were we blessed. The gutters were overflowing in no time. Apparently Oberon copped four inches of rain in that storm.  We only got about an inch.


We were out and about today as well.  We went to another Swap Meet, this time at the village of Newbridge.  It is always a nice friendly little Swap.  Once again we had a stall.

We are having a good time cleaning some “stuff” out of cupboards and the shed.  Mind you, there is still quite a bit to sort through. We were happy with the amount that sold, as the morning was fairly quiet this year, mainly due to the weather being a bit iffy.  It ended up being just right, cool and cloudy, but the rain held off all day.

I was very strong, I only bought a box of old buttons and some patches to sew onto my new camping blanket.

We hope to do it all again at the Oberon Swap Meet in a month’s time.

As you can probably guess, no sewing has been happening.  However, I look at it this way…….I have more spending money for my trip to Nundle next month.

Cheers, Janice
