This is what I mean by specialist. This Train Engine was being transported to the Festival of Britain Site in the 1950s. The vehicle is being towed away from the camera by a tractor unit at the front. The little cab you can see is at the back and has a man in it to steer the rear end.



They also transport boats, aircraft fuselages & wings, power station turbines and all stuff like that.

I'd get it one piece at a time
And it wouldn't cost me a dime
You'll know it's me when I come through your town
I'm gonna ride around in style
I'm gonna drive everybody wild
'Cause I'll have the only one there is a round.

I've never understood why (and I have to say I've only seen girlies do this) there would be any benefit to putting a couple of scrunched up pieces of newspaper into a vase to prevent it breaking when you're moving house. Put lots on the outside, sure, but why inside?




This is a topic of some credible interpretations.

The most widely accepted notion is that girlies have an intuitive hormonal response when it comes to packing vases as the remnants of flowers , now widely recognised as( Inner Vase Stem Fairies ) are predominantly female.

These fairies congregate in clusters for comfort and security and have a canny ability to detect when their home is about to be moved. In concert, they exude hormones which are released and sensed by the olfactory senses in girly noses (which we all know are cute and shiny)…anyway….it triggers an instinct to seek out the ‘ woman’s section ‘ of a daily publication or perhaps a copy of ‘Womans World ‘…or in some fortunate cases a copy of ‘ So , Your Moving Home And You Need To Safely  Transport A Vase’ ISBN: 3335546473….in any case….said publications are inserted to into the neck of the vase…this offers a few benefits.

Firstly, the fairies have a place that feels nice and secure, secondly, it gives them a chance to put their feet up and enjoy a good read about the benefits of  handbag maintenance…but predominantly..it allows them just enough time to complete the one clue crossword…of which the clue is ‘ a two letter abbreviation meaning Artificial Intelligence in which each letter of the abbreviation is intself a single letter vowel word in it’s own right’………With the average trip between locales being 30-90 minutes…this leaves enough time for the fairies to finally figure the answer .

Sheesh !!..it’s obvious isn’t it ?

Glad I could help !

You are partially right.. When my back was killing me from moving three truck loads of furniture loads of furniture and boxes by myself.. I would sit down and wrap the breakables! LOL it helped rest my tired tailfeathers.. before bob would get home and help with the last load!  I pretty much did the moving for twenty years! And definitely the wrapping! LOL
