The Flea Market was a lot more active than last week, and after a visit to PostNet to give a correct phone number for the author, I sallied forth into it with enthusiasm. Apart from replenishing cigarette stock for Much Better Half and (too much information?) stocks of toilet rolls, I was able to buy a couple of roll-over cars for the kids and for self a lazar light/pocket torch/pen — nifty!
The personal indulgence of the day, though, was the musical or blunt instrument shown. According to the vendor it has been traced back to the early 1800s. As a bopper, it could do serious damage. As an emitter of sound it could also do severe damage. At first, though, all I could get out of it were feeble puffing noises, but squeaks did follow as I got partly to grips with the embouchure challenge. Fortunately the keys are similar to those of a clarinet so I foresee I will get to grips — in touch! — with those fairly easily.
Another fun toy!
