I have looked after some nails, 15 mm and 20 mm. From the city-hardware store there were none 15 mm, and 20 mm were in small plastic bags, 120 nails in each. (Some one counted them all?)

took care of the nails -
a safe plastic bag

I had to wake my old car and head to the country side. Therefrom a big ironmonger / hardware store I found small enough nails. They waited me on the main corridor, "street" # 9 to the left, there they were! Two 0,5 kg bag, = one kilogram together!

individual nails
all of them in peace

My old car waited me, there was a free parking anyway. Drove home. I wonder whether my car found anything?

This builds very nicely to the final verse.

An old man?

Thanks Bill. As my car is 12 years old I feel as old as she? :-)

But as now retired I think I don't need a car.

To hire one now and then? Anyway she is quite cheap one.

- So?

There is a story why I bought those nails.
My friend needs them to repair his cottage's windows.
He did not found 15 & 20 mm nails from his hardware-shop.

And I am going to visit him next summer, I hope.

So I will have these two packets with me!

(Hmn, those windows needing some repairs waiting for me too ?-(

Henrique: obrigado!

just bought
nail packets
