Mandy took me shopping to Handforth Dean near the airport, my worst nightmare and it was so busy at lunch time I didn't even get a coffee and cake. We looked for a better winter coat so I could use one whilst filming and a better one for posh dos ( like shopping?), this involved the usual frustrating walk through M&S who have mediums which are too big and extra large which are too small - finally found one I really likes in Lewis's which was not in my size at all. We got some bits and pieces, had a look at electric shavers as I'd declared i needed a new one when quizzed over Christmas presents, I don't really the old one is still going fine but in Lewis it was £20 more expensive than on Amazon so we left it to order online.
I'm running off more of the 16mm film, last night I had the 1956 Mobil fuel economy rally which was stunning, a quality print with great colour and so much interesting coverage of our country when it was just ours and still beautiful. I've added the 1950TT races on the IOM and now it's a Walt Disney educational film on Thailand or Siam as it was in those days but nothing to beat the pre war colour film of Philippines, Macau and Hong Kong I copied yesterday. I also uploaded another two destinations of bus stills to our Smugmug site, after so many requests to get hold of my still photos I can't understand why it isn't more used. One thing that does get more use is own own shop when Weebly started to facilitate all credit and charge cards as well as Paypal. The photos from my last lorry filming in Middlewich last week. Also loaded to Youtube was a pile of films from the Super8 material I'd copied, notable for Ring of Kerry and Scottish Highlands films plus Esso tankers 1970-77.
