Hi,

Dev77 and family dropped in for a few hours yesterday to have the tour and pick up some bits. He had his camera out but it has the same problem mine has and it didn't take to many shots as i recall :)

I replaced a windscreen on the white Moke and it was last fitted with this black windscreen goo that doesn't set. There was shit and black stuff all over the place by the time of got the glass out and it was the first time i have ever cleaned the old glass before throwing it out because i didn't want to be finding bits of this black stuff everywhere.

I picked up a couple of new tyres for it today, DeeStone, but the model was Nakara which is probably not that far from a Moke, sort of.  :)

And I just noticed DS sitting there with a flat front tyre so i have a feeling a repair is in order.

Thanks for your time Terry and the guided tour of the orphange.  As you say the camera was in hand but after the first two shots I was just carrying it. 
Terry has the orphange set out very carefully so it is difficult to capture the perfect photo.  Some may call it a mess but those who know, a man and his shed, know that it is all carefully planned to keep it so you know how to work it and anybody else gives up quickly as they can't manage your system.  I am still in the process of arranging my shed to a level where  can use it but make it hard enogh that other won't. 
I did have it set out so other would use it but in the end it even got to complicated for me.   Now I am getting it all sorted so it is usable again, then I need to go out and buy more things so I can stop others from using it.

Again thanks Terry for your tour.

Cheers

Dev

G'day Dev,
           Its an eye opener isn't? ;D Ruth and i stayed
there for a few days before and after going to Tassie
and although we had a camera with us we never took
a single picture of Terrys stuff except for the green
moke we bought from him. It was a case of just too
much stuff to look at and forgeting about the camera,
plus not wanting to take away the mystery of it all and
respect for Terrys privacy.

I only ever ended up taking 2 photos when I had Terry's hospitality a few years ago. Like everyone else I was too busy looking to take photos.

Hi,

The photo Spotty posted is from about 2008 or 2007 but it was still as messy when JiMoke came to visit. Since then I have cleaned up a a lot more.

The pink/purple one is not mine and Cabsav's boys counted 39 a few weeks ago, one of which isn't mine, so technically there is another 25 not in the photos.  :P

That was only the first shed, the drool got all over the camera after that. Everywhere I looked there were more Mokes hiding and if I remember correctly there was even a lone mini there somewhere.
