The Real Reason to Go to England!

The Herbal Husband turned into a senior in early March and the Dinky Toys that he collects turn 75 this year. Derby was picked to host an exhibition of Dinky Toys in the Silk Mill Industrial Museum. So it became a reason for me to drive on the wrong side and see an area of England that we had never seen before. The exhibit will be on until September. Big boys and their toys!

Yes, he did find a Dinky or two. Of course, the screeners at the airport loved the Dinkys also. They thought I had a serrated knife! I thought to myself serrated knife, serrated knife. Can't remember packing that. Turned out to be my menopausal fan! lol! We think collections are great. Glad you like them too! Hugs! ;>}
