Sure, like Carol's friend on the tv who has lots of kids, works full
time and grows veg all over the place? If that's not real life what
is? I've just bought today another 2 railway sleepers at 7 quids each
and 8 scaffolding planks at 8 quids each. Should they be free and why?

Builders merchant on Upper Chorlton Road Manchester and from a friend
who runs a recycling timber business. I'm for ever getting wood from
him. Where do you live?

Lots of friends in timbers indeed, from tree surgeons to artists,
sculptors and joiners, cabinet makers and a husband who would like
nothing better for a present than a nice plank of maple ) I got him
2 x 5m long plank of cherry (with bark on the edges) from Middlewood
last year. Both plank cost me 14 quids, bred, cut and dried in
Middlewood. It's a nice trip for the day from where you are. My friend
runs it since the 60s. He has become my guru )

Manchester. Give me a couple of days and I'll find you something a bit
cheaper than 25 quids a sleeper in or around Leeds. I'll ask around.

Tina, I'm sorry, I've made a mistake, the new scaffold planks were 8
quids each and the sleepers were 14 quids plus vat, not 7 quids,
telephone 0161-226 9190. I got a number from a neighbour on the lotty
- she's built her beds out of reject sleepers each for less than 10
quids from a place in Nottingham and had them delivered - telephone
0115 9890445. Apparently they didn't have tar or creosote on them too.

Check with my friend John Poole on the link below - he'll do anything
for a sweet voice ;o) The company is called Trim and they're based in
Gorton. Good luck!

you bought TODAY at 7 quids each I don't believe it

and then 1 DAY later

the sleepers were 14 quids plus vat, not 7 quids,


as usual bad and inaccurate advice

)) Sorry about the empty post above. I unconsciously thought to
provide us with some kind of buffering and protection ;o)

Thanks for reminding me - I've just downloaded the guitar tabs for
'Sad Lisa', such a sweet song, but no sign of my LP ...
