Old Yellow Roller


  1. Beautiful picture of this old roller, Mark!
    Very well done!
    Have a nice weekend, greetings from the Dolomites ;)

  2. Wonderful colour and textures here.

  3. Ah, now you have tapped into my vein. Know what I have been doing for the last two weeks? 'Course you don't, so I regale you with it.

    I have been trawling e-Bay for old (1955-1972ish) Matchbox toys made by Lesney in England. The more battered the better. I only want to pay about $10 (plus postage). It all started with me wanting to give my grand-daughter an array of city service-vehicles for her birthday (as one does for a one year old girl, as an innoculation against Pink-Princess Syndrome). I hunted around and what was on sale was shite: plastic, american ... yuk~! I am managing about 5 per week. There are old rollers and graders available, too. I have not got into them yet, but will.

    PPS in an insidious disease which makes jello of the brain.

  4. Mark, I think he's all out of gas! His rolling days are over!

  5. Julie I loved Matchbox cars when I was a child. I am sure your grand daughter will love them as well.
