These could be Val doodles which he drew while waiting for the Tour de France to pass by on the 12th day.

So can anyone tell me if this is Val's hand writing and did he draw the picture?

Thank you Mr. Valentine Mark Herman.  Very funny and i'll let you translate.

They are not doodles! They are the working plans,  dimensions and technical specifications of of the complicated bit of machinery that I built single handed out of bits and pieces from ametal and wood workshop. It's* for sale...for several thousand euros, dollars or pounds;

Make me an offer?

* the drawing, not the machinery

Well it's a good thing we have you around Alan.  But remember, rust never sleeps.

I got one of them with exactly the same doodles, so I think they must be part of the picture, Dean.

No wonder he's going rusty if he's been sleeping outdoors!

"Val Mail", very clever! Even if  the only tool is his imagination..." and that is a bit rusty?

Maybe like a bike wheel?
