Liz, you asked where the flour sieve was? It is the radiator grill mesh. also the radio antenna, are bycicle spokes. Everything has got more than one use. Just figuering out WHAT? Posted on 05/01/2009 07:27 AM
Thanks Alex....I have no idea why I would remember that...I guess I had empathy for Joan trying to do her baking!
The maple leaf in the frame, was hammered out by dad (Ted) out of a piece of my copper water pipe. This inspired me to build the truck, from brass, copper, and aluminun. Took about 3 years to build.(he picked up a maple leaf in the fall and scribed it on the copper after flattening it)then cut it out with tin snips. Posted on 04/30/2009 19:59 PM
I rmember dad making lots of plates like that Alex...I can't see the Maple leaf...where is it?
I did not get water flowing fast enough from pumper, Lightening struck the antenna, and caused the fire.
Was anyone living there? Did it burn down totally? I remember when we were in the farmhouse and we were sat round the campfire and the fire department came down the driveway...YOU on the way back from another fire!..lol
