These boots were made for walking around

They of course should have been my natural habitat from day one.

But somehow, for all the usual silly, untrue reasons... 'not enough time', etc... I have not been to one in an age.

Then, this weekend, the combination of a dead house and too early to disturb slumbering family, I donned my rucksack and pedalled off to our nearest one.

Awesome! A good few hundred stalls laid out in the cattle market. Yes, there were a few that erred on the tat (hey, they were selling, so the missus will be happy if I am inspired to purge ours... if not because it will be to make way for more Junkk), but there were some real finds at bargain prices.

I managed to get a 30cm vernier caliper and a micrometer to help with my Junkk data uploads.

Now all I need to do is figure out how to work them (I used to know, but with my eyesight the digital readout ones are a lot easier and I have gotten lazy).
