Another long delay. Not my fault this time, the mac is playing silly buggers. Amazing how these gadgets are missed when they are out of action. The big beast has been clamped under the digital doctor’s arm and unceremoniously removed from the premises . Apparently it suffers from a malaise which afflicts the heart. A heart transplant may be on the cards.
I would have had quite a few items to share, which I will probably now forget about. The first man in shorts climbing hand over hand down the hill backwards,big bottom leading the way. A beautiful butterfly robbing a solitary blossom of nectar. A family gingerly climbing up the hill,also on all fours. I have had my hedge cut short and can now watch winter weary tourists perform their clumsy gyrations. It would be cruel to laugh out loud.
And my neighbours, my blasted neighbours, they have covered a huge pile of scaffolding with a shroud,visible for miles around.
I have my first bit of revenge planned and booked: I will be opening the garden at the end of June when the disastrous results will be clearly visible.
Wish me luck with my mean plans.
I wish you lots and lots of luck with your plans - and hope your open garden doesn't exhaust you and goes well.ReplyDelete
All the best for your biggest beast's health, and for your plans!ReplyDelete
Shorts have been very visible here for much of this month. Now, with quite a dip in temperature and the possibility of a bit of snow this weekend, I hope people are sensible enough to adapt their outfits. Many don't seem to have much sense in that department, though.
In certain situations in is difficult to look elegant. Climbing steep hills or coming down them seems to be one of the them. Me getting in and out of the car is hardly elegant.ReplyDelete
I am looking forward to your neighbourly reveal.
I hope that the visit to the computer infirmary resulted in a reinvigorated patient who is now functioning seamlessly. As for coming down the hill backwards, a dignified descent would take second place to safety I would imagine. For some, perhaps better not to climb the hill in the first place. As for your neighbours, unleash the dogs of sweet revenge on them I say.ReplyDelete
Hi Friko - machinery outages are just such a pain ... I hope it gets fixed soon. Men in shorts somersaulting down a hill - reminds me of the cheese wheel chasing down hill in Gloucestershire (Cooper's Hill) - must hurt!ReplyDelete
Oh well done re opening the garden - good luck with sorting it out very soon - those shrouds are theoretically I think (NB I think) are to stop rubble and bits flying out - but the noise is always an added challenge. At least the garden will look stunning - despite its backdrop.
Take care and all the best - life has its ups and downs ... cheers and wishing you the best of Spring as it leads towards Summer - and the return of the machine that rules! With thoughts - Hilary
It is when our computers get sick that we realize we may just be a wee bit addicted. Hope all is well soon.ReplyDelete
Good luck with the garden and looking forward to the expose and just what you have in store for them.
Best of luck with your mean plans. I think we will all want a full report! Three cheers on gardening season beginning and much to anticipate. Just try not to look next door. (Do share a photo of the abomination, too!).ReplyDelete
Yes, sick computers do reveal how very much we use them. Hope all will be better than ever -- and soon!
Glad to see you back in the blog community. I look forward to your adventures in the garden.ReplyDelete
❤️ Sending love from Alberta ... says this cat and her cat Theo Thunderbutt :)ReplyDelete
We seem to be very much enthralled with our computers. Grins at the imagined sight of early tourists on the hill. Good luck on your open garden.ReplyDelete
Opening the garden for people to see does not sound mean. Computers? Ech! Cannot live with them and cannot live without them.ReplyDelete
playing silly buggers - I haven't heard that one yetReplyDelete
Good for you with the garden! If you want to rise to the occasion, giving the neighbor some homegrown vegetables may be a way in to heal wounds and start dialogue.
On the other hand you could use a lot of manure to stick up the place to hell.
Your brief post is so filled with imagery that made me chuckle. My computer is slower than molasses. Happy gardening.ReplyDelete
You just made me love my simple never failing Chromebook even more. I hope the heart transplant will work out. Have a great weekend.ReplyDelete
Glad your mac is well now, Friko.ReplyDelete
Happy April, dear.
It always makes me happy to read about your garden. Here's to a successful and lovely season, despite neighbors and etc. As for these computers of ours, the name an early blogger friend used for hers may amuse you; she called it her "infernal, persnickety time-sucker."ReplyDelete
Hope your Garden is beautiful this year!ReplyDelete
I can't wait to see and hear about your mean plans. Good for you!ReplyDelete
Tourists sound like good entertainment -- whatever makes you laugh since you need that stimulation. Ah, your plans sound intriguing.ReplyDelete
I wish you all the luck in the world. Yes, Honolulu is full of tourists and they can be amusingReplyDelete
