If you're English, the plural is rooves.

Sorry but that’s not correct. Rooves is the irregular plural even in British English. 

 

Unless you're a wolf. 

 

BTW, did you know that an LP has just one groof one each side?

The time slip varies between about 1897 and 1965 in this house...

One of the Monty Python LPs ("Matching Tie and Handkerchief", I believe) has two grooven on one side. And I have a very old HMV 78rpm disk that has a single groove, on one side only!

The joke was with my friends and colleagues was that I was born 30 years too late with my music, fashion and vehicle choices!

Likewise. Just about the only things around here that aren't older than I am are the Memsahib and the contents of the fridge.

Someone I once worked with came up to me one morning and said with all the assertiveness he could muster: "I know why you like old cars old music, old things in general. It's because you fear the future!"

I asked him politely how long he had been working on that theory and how many crayons he might have used?

Sorry about the double upload. I think it qualifies as ebay madness. Hornby mk3 carriages go for stupid amounts of money. Especially if they are painted yellow. This one isn't, but, is an example of the stupid amounts of money, people want for an inaccurate mk3 carriage. The yellow ones, or, royal ones tend to go for a lot more.

Different things. One is a badly built and painted but reasonably accurate model of an LNWR six wheel carriage, the other is a superbly finished model of a generic coach purporting to be of an LNWR carriage (even then, the colour scheme is debateable).

I am left wondereing how he expects the coach to go around curves or negotiate the tops or bottoms of gradients when you taken the wonderful opportunity he offers you to glue the bogies back into position.  He really does deserve his own thread!
