Hi Colin,
I know just what your saying, ive managed to do a cut on two sections of the garden lawns,
ie we've the orchard and the main lawn and then part by the pool, this section you can't get the big boys toy onto:rolleyes:
And just as i was hoping to get the push mower out to do the places the ride-on can't get to without doing half a dozen takes
ie around tree bases (these are cut out in circles and full of plants) and the corners of the lawn, And what happens 'visitor's arrive:rolleyes:
And (she who must be obeyed) starts screaming for me to come in and say hello, As i enter the kitchen im told to go and get a few tomato plants and take my time as its womens talk, (the visitor was intears)
So off i go and select 6 potted and ready to go in the garden tom plants, 3 russian dark skins and 3 beefeater, and then it started to rain,

After about 20mins i called back into the kitchen (but my ear's recieve the whisper "Ann's very upset" so watch what you say" finger in my rip cage,
Hi Ann how's the family ? arhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Said the wrong thing her partner has left her for another,
So as you can see im in the office watching the rain and not sure if im getting any dinner tonight.

You know Colin when i was in the Army i thought i'd do my 22years and stay single and get a cottage away from any humans "Have a dog" and live the life of peace, :p:p:p
So i can see what you mean ref changes both in the weather and plans.

PS i feel a poem coming on.

Alone again
Im older now and on my own,
I live in a remote part of wales, just me, my dog and a phone.
I never see people from day to day unless I go to my nearest village seven miles away.

Most times in the winter I have no phone, the wind blows the cables down and thats when I feel really alone.

It's handy having the phone for doctors/vet and hoping maybe a wrong number I might just get.

I call to ask if there's any mail for me as im always home.

I feed the wild birds no matter how the weather has arrived,
the blue tit's and sparrows are in the hedge (I like to think i keep them alive)

They come and feast most all of the day and the tables empty by darkest time of the day

I wake in the morning thanks to natures clock,
Two rooks tapping on the empty wooden bird feeder every day spot on 8 o'clock
they're shy and dont like much fuss "but they come to visit my dog sam" yes the two of us.

Despite winters harsh nights and day I would'nt want to change my life for city life and company "No way"

There's no waste in any shape or form everythings used even when it's worn.
All my food is good, proper grub, that not only fills you up but its full of protein that does you good.
Yes, Ive a small cottage that sits alone,
It's painted white and it's got a phone.

Hi,

13C tops here today and earlier as I came down from the top of the mountain I thought it was winter; Gale was putting her usual breeze up the valley and it sure felt cold; Blackie's just visited us putting more rain down and it's the usual black hole; tomorrow forecast the same.

I hope it warms up and dries up for Saturday morning because it's Rufforth Auto Jumble. :)

Kind regards, Colin.

It is in the mid 90s again. As it will be tomorrow. And the day after. And the week after. And the week after that. And pretty much all of June, July and August. No real rain forecast either.

Hi,

Please look after my Blackie Logan; he and his sister Gale have been my constant companions for many years in fact I can loan you Gale; she was here last night; the bedroom window was open and I awoke to the curtains being blown around and the window rattling. :)

WOW it's forecast fine for today with a rise in temperature; am I still in Yorkshire?

Kind regards, Colin.

Hi,

I've just enjoyed a laugh by looking at the BBC weather forecast for my area; already today we've enjoyed yet another downpour; does sunny intervals mean between downpours? I'm visiting Rufforth Auto Jumble this Saturday what's betting the forecast is wrong?

Kind regards, Colin.

Hi,

Thanks Logan. I doubt the BBC weather forecasters could correctly predict rain if they were standing under a cloudburst. It's good of you to look after Blackie and Gale for me; I hope you tire them both out before returning them to me. :D (y)

21C forecast for today; I hadn't realized Yorkshire thermometers read so high.

Rufforth Auto Jumble tomorrow; will it rain?

Kind regards, Colin.

Hot and dry here in Alberta, the forest fire season has started early this year, our entire province is blanketed in smoke. I can taste it today and everything is a haze. They're getting the smoke from my province in Detroit and Denver.

Hi,

Awww thanks Logan. :D

WOW I've only just returned from Rufforth Auto Jumble and both Blackie and Gale haven't tormented me; overcast but warm and no gale force wind so I've enjoyed myself and bought a couple of new toys; I've been looking for a cranked hoe and spotted one so I picked it up taking it to the guy sitting in the back of his van; "How much please" reply " It's over 100 years old you can tell by the knob on the end of the handle; it's £30" he still has the hoe; at another stall I spotted another cranked hoe this too being old; the usual "How much please" reply "It's £2" it's in the car awaiting unloading; on the same stall were two old Suffolk petrol mowers; I had a good look but resisted and strolled away; a short while later I was looking at these again and thought do I actually need a third petrol mower and walked away; on the third visit one of the mowers is in the car awaiting unloading; when I asked how much I was surprised by the reply; "they need some TLC but one has its grass box which is rare and that one is £20" I love Rufforth.

We use lots of black refuse bin bags so I handed over £20 for 24 rolls which should keep us busy for a while; I couldn't leave Bron out even though Rufforth is a guy thing; I bought Bron a lidded plastic box for her card making materials at £7.50. As I wandered around I bought quite a few useful items so I'm well pleased. As I pushed the mower to the car it was funny; the mower was kicking up a right old racket with its metal roller on the tarmac and blades spinning; it was as though it was mowing a path through all the visitors who stepped to one side as I approached bearing a big smile; at the car I had a problem; I dropped the rear seats and pulled everything out of the boot just then two passing guys kindly asked if I'd like a lift into the car with the mower which I gratefully accepted thanking them for their kindness; I've never been center stage but pushing this mower drew everyone's attention to me; good job I'm not shy?

I'm having a mug of tea and bickie then I'll unload the car. (y)

Kind regards, Colin.
