HELLO FORKERS!

It sounds funny, if it weren't so serious.

Just rewired another section of fence, but it's raining and I'm going out to lunch.

Lovely dog, and garden too.

Morning all. Overslept. Wonder why! Specially as here it is one hour ahead.

My carrots didn't germinate  Must re sow.

OH has an all day choir practice today. Cooking some chicken for the bring and share lunch. Should have done it yesterday, but thought it was next week. Can't believe it's May already. I haven't even weeded each flower bed yet. Potatoes need earthing up, broad beans need weeding. Good thing I'm retired but body works more slowly than it used to.

Hope headache goes quickly, Lily.

Been repairing and replacing electric fence ribbon and banging in posts so I can put the horses into their summer quarters. Thought I'd done it in the autumn, but with all the wind and rain this winter and all the fallen branches on the fences I needn't have bothered. It's taking ages and not finished yet.

Past bed time, night all.

The script is all in the wrong order too. The first sentence should be the last one, with the photo just before it. Weird.

 Mine took much longer to upload of course. The orange is subdued, is that just the camera?

Oh dear, the quality isn't nearly as good as the original.

Here's mine of the same thing. Why did the photo come first when I did the script first?

OH and I took the same photo in Oxford, mine is a bit dull, his is brighter, but his was too big and wouldn't upload. So he reduced it as I couldn't manage it, but it's tiny now. He wouldn't stop to explain how he reduced - he's rushed off to mow the lawn. Think it's the first time he's managed to do it anyway! I've asked on previous threads how to reduce photos, but the few answers I had didn't work. Does anyone know?

tomstattyhead, you go to the photo you want on Photobucket and on the right it says "links to share photos", but I can't remember which one, either HTML or Direct I think. You click on the oak tree in the bar above and click on "an external site" then be guided, allowing time for each stage.
