Collectors


Over the road from the monument at Larras Lee is a collector extraordinaire.  There were dozens of railway carriages mouldering the paddock, old trucks, old cars, a pile of huge tyres from those giant mining machines and heaps of other junk but I reckon having a spare aircraft in the yard takes the cake.

    1. Martina, I have been gone a couple of days and did not realise that commenting had been changed. I have selected this as the best option. Now I am wondering if I use "reply" which appears on this view, whether it sends you a message.

  4. I was watching Selling Houses yesterday - they had to sell a house of a hoarder, and you can imagine what the clean up was like. However, having plan segments in your yard is something else!

    1. It took me 3 months full time to clean up my parents home and business when they passed on, so I know all about cleaning up to sell house.

    1. Ann, he appears to also have big trucks as a business sideline ... actually I am not sure if it trucks or junk that is his real business.

  7. I'm sure hoarders have a mental problem.

  9. That is amazing. But as my husband is a good at being a "step toe".....the best he has got is a house - in fact three - I will not show him this one!
