Been, so far, a very busy week. On Tuesday we motored to London in the morning. Parked at Liz's, then by tube to Bonham's in Knightsbridge where we viewed their Arms and Armour sale - very large one -596 lots! Back to Liz's where Georgia and her partner, Andy, had made dinner. On Wednesday returned to Bonham's and bid. Got eight lots (scattered over a long day). Paid for these, then Andy helped pack them, and I left him in charge of doing so, whilst I went and got a taxi for our return with goodies to Chiswick. Again supped and slept at Liz's (shades of Parson Woodford ? Probably, just been rereading him). Do other bloggers find that their reading matter is then reflected in the style of their blog a little?). This morning to Sotheby's Arms and Armour sale, which will not be held until next Wednesday, but Thomas Delmar, their Arms and Armour Director, and a good friend, had suggested that we had a private viewing of the bits that interested us. Left one (fairly optimistic bid). Then back to Liz's, sandwich and coffee, bless her, then drove home.
Photo above is not really a mystery object, as it is obviously a pistol, but perhaps some of you would care to guess its lock type, age, date, and country of origin?
Good night all.
