« Part 6: National Tradesman Expo in Brisbane. Part 7 of Going to local shows. series Part 8: Where it all started.. »

Nearly every Sunday morning my wife and I vist the local markets.. to check out the plants and have a look at the trash and treasure… and of course have a bacon and egg roll for breakfast..

A visit to the markets would not be complete without dropping in on Col and Ken… Col has a hydroponic lettuce farm and makes timber items, including marvelous boxes, which he sells on his stall at the market…. Ken is the maker of Wedding Wishing Wells.. and other timber items too… he is branching pun intended, into cutting boards, lazy susans and coffee table.

As neither of them wanted to be in the vid, I had to sneak a shot or two in.. Col was very fast on his feet but Ken was busy, dribbling his hamburger all over the front of his shirt..

I know that these are not really up to Ron’s standards but with a little improvement each time… who knows?

Beautiful stuff your friends make. Looks like they screw around like a bunch of kids. That is some great vid work. Don’t listen to those guys they’re all jealous, if I was you though, a name change to Ted Turner, or Louie B, Mayer, or Steven Speilberg might be a good idea. Only to go along with your new status as master film maker. By the way remind me to tell you about my Uncle Harry sometime.

More men in shorts! Otherwise the video was good and the stuff your friends make is well done. I’m suffering from a serious case of weather envy. I might show up on your doorstep any day now Larry.
