I remembered I had this photo in my collection, picked up on a carboot a decade ago - from a newspapers photo library I think, unsure of the date but I guess probably from when they were quite new?

I get a similar thing when I pass a local billboard for Apple Barn. I insist on reading it as 'nipple farm'. Perhaps that's something other than dyslexia though...

The boy and i have just returned from a bike ride to find nobody home, ide forgotten to take my keys so we were locked out, the neighbour who keeps our spare set is away and i never carry a phone, Crap! My keys (both car set and house set) were on the windowsill in our hallway.... 
Not to be defeated i got the last section of a kiddy fishing rod which was lent up against our wall and climbed up a lamppost on the street and took down a hanging basket, passed it to the boy and we removed the hook and a small section of the chain.


We ended up playing hook'a'duck through the letterbox while struggling to see what the flip we were doing through the patterned glass in the door. I knocked the house keys on the floor but managed to hook my car keys, with access to the car a whole world of fishing gear opportunities opened up to us and we used a magnet from my landing net release clip tied to some line and retrieved the house keys from the floor.


We actually had more fun 'breaking in' than we did on the bike ride...

Well done. Who says magnet fishing isn’t a lucrative game?

I like those chunky keys. They remind me of the ones that went to our caravan back in the 70s.

Those keys are for mortice deadlocks, of which Chubb is the most well-known brand.
