#PicOfTheDay / #LlunADydd

So after sharing pictures non stop recently of trucks that pass through town I realised the ones most of you want to see are trucks from my career. Who while I will still snap #LampeterLorrySpotting pictures if a particularly snazzy and swish lorry comes by I’ll instead be sharing some more from my past. There’s a LOT of them so I hope you all enjoy.

Recently when Whites started buying DAFs, again, many were surprised as they mistakenly thought them a solid Scania/Volvo company. But they aren’t, and they have a long history with DAFs. I think this may have been the first Whites truck I ever drove! My online memory will no doubt connect me if wrong! It looks the part but…… was a 410! As Dad would say it wouldn’t pull the skin off a rice pudding. At the best of times DAFs are pretty feeble but this one took the biscuit. Frankly you could cook dinner in time it took to get up to limiter when heavy and I often did. Nothing like a nice steak while driving. Also from that period when an automatic DAF was like a lucky dip when it came to what gears it chose! But I’ve always been one of those drivers who providing its legal will just drive whatever I’m asked to. Can’t remember where I went in it beyond the location on picture so maybe Pete can inform me!

Anyhow we are having incredible weather here in Wales, 24°c in Ceredigion and everyone is loving it. Have a great rest of weekend everyone be it a bank holiday or not. Bertie is currently playing with his Tarot cards. He’s thinking of squatting in one of the empty shops in town and setting up a tarot reading establishment. He’s already been on to some candle, essence, rock*, hippy supply shops. So he reckons he wants to answer people’s questions on YouTube, so we shall see. Diolch am ddarllen / Thank you for  reading.

*Hes adamant they’re gemstones but they simply look like pebbles from the beach to me.
