A New Home For An Old Anvil.

Do you believe in luck?  The other week we went to see our tractor mechanic friend.  He fixes machinery in a scrapyard.  We were talking to him and suddenly number one son shouts:

"HEY DID YOU SEE THAT?"

"WHAT?"

"OVER THERE.  POKING OUT OF THAT GRASS. "

I looked again.  I couldn't see any but a myriad of old scrap parts and then suddenly a rusty  metal point grabbed my attention.  We had passed the same spot many times that day.  But never noticed the ANVIL stood there looking at us.  Even our tractor mechanic friend didn't know it was there.  It was like it was waiting for number one son to find it!

Any road.  Without going all round the houses.  Number one found himself a small anvil.  He duly paid the man for it.  Took it home, cleaned it up and painted it.  Then he got a tree trunk from a lumberjack friend.  Hey presto!  The anvil got a new home on our smallholding.

Did you see Bantry on Country File the other night?  I could have shown them round my smallholding.  Never mind.

Here's the Blacksmith Song.

  6. Thank! It was like finding the elusive 'needle in a haystack'. There's still plenty of old rural treasure to be found. Thanks for your comment.

  8. I am here to explore a blog forum about the wonderful and most safe cure for HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS . I was positive about the deadly Virus called HERPES and I lost hope completely because I was rejected even by my closet friends. I searched online to know and inquire about a cure for HERPES and I saw Dr ELINFOH testimony online on how he was cured by so many people from Herpes Disease. So I decided to contact the great herbalist because I know that nature has the power to heal everything. i contacted him to know how he can help me and he told me never to worry that he will help me with the natural herbs from God! After 2 days of contacting him, he told me that the cure has been ready and he sent it to me via UPS and it got to me after 18 days! i used the medicine as he instructed me (MORNING and EVENING) and i was cured! its really like a dream but i'm so happy! that's the reason i decided to also add more comment of Him so that more people can be saved just like me! and if you need his help,contact his Email: drelinfohherbalhome@gmail.com  you can contact him on whats'app +2348110492072
