Getting Down To It?


View from kitchen window - man lowering the drain -finished job - packed up van completely - moved 10 yards and repeated process on next drain cover. Why not lower the two drains at once? They waited 30 minutes in van for concrete to set on the first drain before laying tarmac . They could have started on second drain instead of sitting in van! The job took all day. Problem though - big big steam engine came chuffing along heading for Kemble Steam Rally - Drain Men had to evacuate their work site in a hurry and whilst that was happening a big big tractor came clattering along from other direction. Tractor Driver was using mobile phone and not looking where he was going - mayhem - Drain Men took cover as tractor ploughed through 'men at work'. Argument broke out - Steam Engine chuffed by with a happy toot toot.

Hi
thanks for visiting my blog and it would be lovely if you could come to the cottage! all the bloggers i have met have been very nice people. I am afraid we don't take dogs though. It was part of the deal with our farming neighbours that the cottage would be dog free. There are kennels nearby which sometimes people use. any chance of a dog sitter?

Do two at once? Oh purleese. That would involve thinking.

You see what happens when men try to multi task. They can only do one job at a time.
