I believe you umm me I think I am panicking... Good day thou t-shirt weather even in the odd shower.
Panicking not me.... yesterdayI spent a while just sitting out in the garden enjoying it (had to dry the seat off first!). I told myself I was looking around planning.
Yes sir, understand your point ...... NO panic, but we are behind which also means we have less days to do more IN ?? its not good especially if this is how its going to be ?? its us gardeners and farmers who get the raw deal with this weather
Global warming ...................................... how is it goin to effect us ? no good ignoring
It;s gathering momentum isn't it? ooooh the anticipation....sigh-quiver-tremble
20 years ago "they" were predicting a mini ice-age. Then came global warming with it's warm wet winters ( remember we were all told to learn how to garden the mediterranean way). Now it's the jet stream and a prediction of colder winters. Do they wonder why we find it easy to be cynical?
I can almost see my halo! Far from panicking, I have been a goody two shoes and done all those awful gardening jobs that get put off year after year because we are always too busy growing stuff. Sadly there isn't an emoticon to show a self satisfied smirk. I have scrubbed on hands and knees nearly 50 sq. metres of paving stones - weeded thoroughly, though it has to be said, even the weeds are not thriving! I've prepped all the veg beds, mulched the flower beds, sowed seeds in the greenhouse, my next project is to clear some very spidery sacks of kindling into fresh bags and put them into the log store; I have been putting this off for 3 years as am terrified of spiders
I apologise for being so smug
Sorry to be a pedant but any Dad's Army fan will tell you it is Captain Mainwaring, pronounced Mannering. Except by Corporal Captain Square, Mainwaring's arch rival, who pronounces it as written, to comic effect and Capt. Mainwaring's annoyance. And it is Corporal Captain Square before anyone corrects me, he was a Corporal in WW1 but a Captain in the Home Guard so assumed the title Corporal Captain. I'm a bit of a fan bordering on the obsessive as you may have realised.
I can't resist telling Verdun that he is a Stupid Boy for not knowing this!
I think he was being phonetic
Yes, Verdun get your coat! I too like dad's army; it was one of the few comedy things I did like when I was young. I especially liked John Le Mesurier's character...wonderfully vague and not at all into the spit and polish approach of Mainwaring's jumped up little bank manager. I used to loath the 'On the buses' type of humour and 'Terry and June'
I don't ever remember Dad's Army ever doing any "digging for victory", do you? Strange that... given that inreal life all these characters would have been hard at it. Or am I missing something??
Art-you're entitled to feel smug...award yourself a Sir Smug medal!
I went out to my car earlier and the rain has made 5 million dandelions grow where my car is
Only 5 million Fairygirl!
Maybe 6 million Tina...
I think perhaps some people volunteered to be in the Home Guard just because that got them out of Digging for Victory
Fairygirl; I award myself a Dame smug medal; I am a ladee
