Yesterday, Sunday, saw me flying back to Scotland from Newquay airport. It is small in size as you can imagine. Anyway , Mark MofT had kindly given me a matchbox full of figures he didn’t need and was passing them on to me. More on the contents later. They caused great excitement at Security where they showed up as a significant black lump on the screen. All was well after a wee chat a peek inside. The security folk had a wry smile on their faces but seemed pleased at what it turned out to be.
A good flight and bus brought me home having had a great trip. Now once the shed is sorted out for the coming winter can l get back to some hobby projects...
Glad you had a great trip. Looks like you packed a lot in.ReplyDelete
My son usually flies from Manchester when he goes to Newquay. It’s crazy that it’s cheaper than the train.
Thank you, I did.Delete
When I have flown before to Cornwall from Edinburgh l have had to change planes in Manchester. It used to be in off season. I like Manchester Airport with its train station and trams terminus ready to whisk one onwards...
Whoops! Spreading the joy of toy soldiers one airport security queue at a time ...ReplyDelete
Enjoy the contents of the matchbox anyway.
I will and I enjoyed the toy soldier spreading of the word too. I am glad l hadn’t put them in the hold luggage...Delete
I can literally see my house in the middle picture.ReplyDelete
Nice trip by the way.Delete
So that was you waving! :) how was Carronade?ReplyDelete
Carronade was fine, well controlled and fairly safe. Everyone I saw was masked and nobody was crowded too much.Delete
About 500 over the door but I suspect that most folk came, bought their goodies and left. I did.
Roll on 2022.
Alan, remind me to tell you sometime of when I was returning to the States with a couple of kilos of toy soldiers after returning from training at Grantham with the TA. The Security folks really didn't know what to say...ReplyDelete
I've taken the SESWC Ben Hur Chariot game to the Netherlands twice and the Czech Republic once by air hand luggage. They comprised six 4 horse 28mm metal chariots and crew, 6 wrecked metal chariots and 6 runaway teams of metal horses. They got scanned and opened a couple of times much to their surprise and amusement. On all three occasions they missed a modelling knife with 3 inch razor sharp blade.Delete
So that is the Special Relationship that exists between our countries Eric?Delete
Interesting Jim. They were probably in awe of the painting.ReplyDelete
