Kew Bridge - London Museum of Water & Steam

The Museum will be hosting the annual Stirling Engine Club Rally. They expect over 80 working Stirling and hot air engines.

If only   :embarassed:

There is the potential for problems with my baby Elephant "Surus" Bill... Doc says until he's out best I don't go too far from the house in case he decides to make his presence known again  :disappointed:

A lot less fun that waiting on castings for sure. I hope all goes well though Jo and that the "grounding" will be short lived!!

It is tempting, particularly as I will be up in London on Sunday morning though don't think I will be able to make it.

I would have liked to have had a look at your Chuk, quite like that and think it could be done without castings fairly easily, your post of the second one the other day got me looking at it again.

Unfortunately few members of the public visited the museum during the rally yesterday, the atmosphere was gloomy. I expect some potential visitors were put off by the normal route to the museum being closed for road works, the diversion to get there was nearly two miles. However, the exhibitors put on a good display and most of their engines were running. Jason & Jo - you didn't miss much!

Hello Jo,
I didn't take any photos, enough said.
Now, why won't you be going to many shows this year?

Because I am waiting to have a major operation and as a result of the consultancy this morning it is going to be more major than we first hoped  :toilet_claw:

The only good news the surgeon gave me was that I have been recommended to drink more  red wine   :wine1:

Hello Jo

I do not like the sound of that. I am so sorry to hear it.

Remember when we were young, when we thought we were indestructible.

Having just survived emergency Appendectomy for a perforated appendix not major so fortunate, you have my empathy for upcoming surgery, and that you have the outcome you expect. Now the wine thing is a different matter entirely, I would use it a as pickling solution.... but that is just me.
