the first thursday swap meet of the new year...


nice and sunny. got some tools, knicks and knacks, and mangoes.

今年初の木曜メッヒコ・スワップ・ミート。お天気良好。ツールやちょっとしたものに加えて山盛りのマンゴーを入手。ここがメッヒコ・スワップのいいところ。
 
 a nice vendor truck

こんなイカしたトラックで売りに来てる人もいた。
 
shinya found a fine cash box without a key. the guy who was selling this said, "hey, if it had a key, it will be $25 at least! it's a nice box!" and shinya asked, "but it has no key, how much?" the guy said "ok, four bucks!" "how about three?" "deal!"

英国製のしっかりした箱を見つけるも、鍵がない。売主のおじさんは、「鍵が付いてりゃ25ドルはくだらないよ!いい箱だよ!」と言う。「でも鍵ないじゃない、いくら?」と木村氏。「う~ん、じゃあ4ドルでいいよ」「鍵がないんじゃ3ドルだよ」と粘る木村氏。「分かった、いいよ!」簡単に折れるおじさん。最初の25ドルというのは何も関係のない情報アルヨ。ということで、今年初の箱入手。

used baking pans. very handy to put oily parts or fasteners. 3/$1

中古のオーブン用のベーキングパン、ネジ入れたり外した細かい部品入れるのに便利。3つで1㌦也。
 
adding some tools to W's tool wagon.

ナベ箱にツールを足すやさしい木村氏。やさしさだけが取り柄なんですって。初耳・・・


 i like his drawings :)

絵がかわいい。




the orange blinkers are blinking now.

オレンジ色のブリンカーも点滅し始めました。そんなお正月3日目。

That's funny, Shinya and I have something in common, with labeling things with pictures. That and buying lots of motorcycles...

Nice! I wish we had more swaps like that around here. The bike is looking great!
