Her er nogle af mine mest værdsatte ting.

Here are some of my most cherished things.

Disney Classic, et stel til 12 personer fra Firkløveren. Opstillet i min hjemmegjorte tallerkenrække ser det godt ud. Sovsekande og lysestager øverst og serveringsfade næstnederst. Yderst nederst til højre er enkelt kuvert fra Disney Jul-stellet.

 

Disney Classic, a tableware for 12 people from Firkløveren. Placed in my homemade platerack it looks good. Sauce jug and candlesticks top and serving platters second bottom. Extremely bottom right is single envelope from Disney Christmas-tableware..

Carl Barks Samlede Værker (CBSV blandt venner og kendere) fylder pænt i reolen.

 

Carl Barks Collected Works (CBSW among friends and connoisseurs) takes up neatly in the rack.

Fedtmule er nok den mest berejste ting i samlingen. Købt i Nordre Frihavnsgade i København og pakket ind i bølgepap og plastposer blev han båret til Trianglen og kom på cafe. Med bus til Nørreport Station. S-tog til Hovedbanegården. Regionaltog til Kastrup Lufthavn. Med fly til Bornholm og endelig med bil hjem til Engelsminde. Hans bakke knækkede, da en medpassager skubbede til Helles rygsæk, hvor den var. I lufthavnen røg han igennem den store scanner, og jeg var med inde og se, at der ikke var noget inden i ham. Han er helt tom.

 

Goofy is probably the most traveled item in the Collection. Purchased in Nordre Frihavnsgade in Copenhagen and wrapped in cardboard and plastic bags, he was carried to Trianglen and taken to a cafe. By bus to Nørreport Station. S-train to the Central Station. Regional train to the airport. By plane to Bornholm and finally by car home to Engelsminde. His tray broke when a fellow passenger pushed Helles backpack, where it was. At the airport he came through the large scanner, and I was there to see that there was nothing inside him. He is completely empty.

Gamle filmplakater, og også biografprogrammer for den sags skyld, er altid sjove, og der er en del i samlingen som nok kan vække minder.

 

Old movie posters, and also cinema programs for that matter, is always fun, and that is a part of the collection that probably can wake some memories.

Denne brandbil har også en sjov historie. Den blev brugt som udsalgsreol i en boghandel i Rønne, og jeg havde flere gange været inde og spørge, om ikke de skulle have den skiftet ud. Men nej. Indtil en dag, hvor jeg blev ringet op af en af vores ældste venner her på øen, om jeg var interesseret i en brandbil. Der gik et øjeblik før jeg vidste hvad han snakkede om, men så faldt ti-øren, og jeg fik at vide, at den stod i hans indkørsel. Afsted med traileren næste dag og hente den. Den kunne lige være der, men den kunne til gengæld kun komme ind ad hoveddøren og ikke op på loftet. Gode råd var dyre, men Ianto havde heldigvis noget "kraft ædeme-lim" så den blev skilt ad i hoveddelene, båret på loftet og samlet igen. Og nu kommer den nok ikke ned igen, da den ikke kan skilles ad nu.

 

This firetruck also has a funny story. It was used as a retail shelf in a bookstore in Ronne, and I had several times been in the store asking if they should have it replaced. But no. Until one day I got a call from one of our oldest friends here on the island, if I was interested in a firetruck. It took a moment before I knew what he was talking about, but then the dime fell, and I was told that it stood in his driveway. Off with the trailer next day and get it. It could just be there, but it could only just come in through the front door and not up to the ceiling. Good advice was expensive, but Ianto had fortunately some "fucking-glue" so it was dismantled in the head parts, carried to the ceiling and reassembled. And now it probably won't come back down as it can not be separated again.
