A big big lorry was heading down my street this morning. I went out to see if I could help, there was no way the driver could turn that around in the dead end at the bottom. He realised when he was half way down and started backing out. 
He then went down another road, it is also quite narrow down there, and a minute later he was backing out of there as well. They are tarmacking some of the roads nearby and he needed to unload the machines. Two have already been unloaded when I took the first picture. 
Next he unloaded the big one. 
And parked it.
Then he went back for the fourth and last one. 
Start it up.

And drive it off the lorry. 
When he had finished he drove away. Two hours later the gang arrived with more equipment and three loads of wet tarmac. I quite enjoyed all the activity. Something interesting to watch from my window. I miss trucking sometimes. 
Thanks for popping in. We'll catch up soon. Toodle pip.   ilona


  1. Great pictures Ilona I imagine that although you have your retirement freedom now you may miss the trucking life style and daily experiences sometimes as your mind is still very sharp and you are still very fit and active too I've been working in a truckers cafe at weekends it's a new experience for me.i enjoy seeing them pull up in their huge lorry's and come running into the cafe for their breakfast.i used to be a little chef manager for years so I can cook them a mean fry up lolx

  2. Bet you were longing to drive one of the machines. Bit of excitement and something interesting to watch.I remember the other picture from when you wrote about the lady truck drivers.

  3. I bet that you was longing to get out there n give them a hand!.xx
