Hi Dave & Rich

No, tripped up on the rockery - ended up between a hard place and a rock!

Ouch...maybe take more water with it?


That's one problem I don't have. It'd be a mite difficult having a rockery in a first floor flat...

You Defo  don't want Jackdaws Rich,
The Nick all the shiny bits you have lined up for
Motorflote.
Will try and get some photos of my old one when
the owner gets out of hospital.
What do you want?
Insides, undersides or what?
You have my photos in the water.
Can you email me the plans and build notes.
No need to mail them, just send to email addy
and I can print them off no probs.
I hope you cover up your boats when you are
in the boodwer with a bare footed lady :D :D :D

I find the jackdaws highly comical things, they strut about the lawns as though they own the place, they thing nothing of standing up to the seagulls which we are plagued with. I used to have a magpie who would come every morning, tap on the window, and wait for his breakfast...toast or cornflakes, eggs n' bacon, he didn't mind. He came for a couple of years, regular as clockwork, then one morning...no magpie. I guess he met his end somehow, poor old fella.


Now, where were we...oh yes, photos. Anything will be gratefully received Ned...internal, external, top/bottom...anything and everything.


I'll scan everything I have and get them emailed off to you, mate...they are on my other laptop.


The lady in question was slightly surprised to find boats in the wardrobe, on top of the wardrobe, under the bed, in the hall, and in the front room. She hasn't seen the attic yet...
She thinks the Akula looks 'sexy'...her words, not mine.  ;D

Dunno about taking more water with it.  "Instead of" might have been effective.


Removal of "weeds" got me banned from my garden some 45 years ago.  I am now told, having lost my gardener some 5 years ago, that her roses need "dead heading".  I've looked up the instructions, but they might as well be in Swahili.

Which leads to the inevitable question that wives everywhere ask their poor defenceless husbands...'does my bum look big in this' .  You are dammed if you answer that question, you are dammed if you don't.
Never answer that, just look at your watch and mutter something completely unintelligible and find something very important to do elsewhere.

When I was pretending to be a Civil Servant, I got asked (well, me and the two other guys doing the mail) this very question by a young lady in her new jeans and she was responded to by a trio of Les Dawson impressionists going "ohhh!! yeeessss!!".  The question never arose again.  Oddly.

Thanks Brian, Rich, Gazou, Malcolm, Essex2visuvesi and Ray for all your suggestions and advice!  O0

I was actually trying to dig out the root of a fern at the time - which would have left a hole, but not quite big enough to accommodate Mrs Corposant.  :-)   I wasn't aware of any flying false teeth at that moment in time!

Over the years (53 next month!) I have learned the art of diplomacy with respect to anatomy and attire.  ;D But I've obviously not learned the lesson about venturing into the garden!  :((   (I did make a valiant attempt to kill the Astilbe with weed-killer once, thinking it was Ground Elder - that didn't go down too well.  %) )

I must try to do better in future!

If it can't be done with a chainsaw from a distance or the mower, then it doesn't get done in our garden til the brother in law (professional gardener) comes round.
