After lunch 30% headed back in to Evesham on a mission and left me to my own devices. I spent an hour or so drawing up some plans for a box frame to display the spear heads we bought at auction a couple of weeks ago and then wandered out to the garage to check on materials. I have most of the timber but will need a few fixings and sheet material before I can make much progress. I also think there may well be some intense "head scratching" when I get to the point of mounting the spear heads and assembling the frame.
With that finished I lit a fire and settled down for a lazy afternoon. Some time later 30% returned from her trip to Evesham having successfully negotiated a price on an item we noticed in the old indoor market yesterday.*
We are now the owners of a stuffed badger. He is in lovely condition and simply needs a mount constructing to display him properly ...
... I must see if there is any more of that mahogany bench top going spare.
---* it has long since closed as a market and now optimistically describes itself as an Antique Centre. Junk Emporium is a little closer to the truth.
