HELLO FORKERS! November Edition

Lots of people don't understand what they call modern art just as lots of people don't understand contemporary music, dance and literature.  If they were interested in it and studied it they might find it fascinating - but if they don't that's fine too.

Garden like a swamp, 2 weeks off work to come up with solution

It's very difficult to change the drainage and water levels over a small area without just off-loading it onto the neighbours ... 


Good luck with it - hope your landscapers can come up with a good solution - I think I'd go with a bog garden

Pa was sent all over the place during the war, from the Shetlands to North Africa and Egypt, Italy and Palestine.  


Lots of women's football around here - we have some very good teams.

He lost his youngest brother (shot down over Germany) who had joined the Royal Canadian Airforce as soon as he was old enough because the RAF weren't recruiting at that time.  Apparently I looked like him as a teenager.  Pa wrote a book of his WW2 experiences in the RAF - we still have a few copies left - if anyone is interested in a copy send  me a PM

Guilty m'lud 


The Auerbach Head of Gerda Boehm is OH's birthday pressie - he's a huge Auerbach fan   but keep it   it's a surprise. 


Also I've treated myself to Lanyon's Inshore Fishing and the Leach pot - I've always loved Peter Lanyon's work ever since I first saw it when I was in my teens  He's been a bit of an influence on my own work.  I've also got the William Scott and the Victor Passmore - couldn't resist them


So, your diamond and sapphire tiara might be a bit on the small size - or you could have the Turnbull bronze for the garden ...
