    on sundays me and my wife always like to
    try a car boot sale here and there.
    for you yanks who dont no what that is,
    its usualy a large field were upto 2-300 cars
    set up stalls and sell of there un-wanted stuff
    anything goes.
    now - im not that desperate - but anyone who visits
    them knows theres always little trinkets to pickup for
    peanuts. me personaly i like obscure ornaments
    so i was chuffed [ happy ] when i found this
    measuring 23 inches across - 12 inches wide.
    biggest one ive seen in a while snapped up for
    8 quid - bout 12$ -

    I'm off to Jamaica on saturday will pick you up a couple if you like.
    good to get one that hasn't been vandalised as they stab the end to
    make the meat crawl out. ( tastes awsome) octopus get them out
    without damaging the shell.

    in the compartment underneath it
    looking for 1 a little smaller
    13x6 thats 13 inches long no more
    by 6-8 inches width
    would love to get 1 like the 1 above
    with a nice front lip on it.
