Verdun, sorry to hear your mum's not too good again - it sounds as if it may have been what's known as a Mini-stroke or Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) - Pa's had quite a few.  They differ from regular strokes in not resulting in any damage to the brain or physical disability.  Pa used to have one in the morning and then be totally recovered by teatime.  It does however increase the risk of a 'regular stroke'.  

Allium, your cat wouldn't have stood a chance against my Cuckoo Maran cockerel 'Everest'  - he looked like this one, only taller ....

I'm frequently tempted to keep hens again - when I lived out in High Suffolk I had a smallholding and kept 60+ rare breeds and bantams - love them - but we don't have a great deal of room here - and we do like to go away at short notice from time to time - and very early the other morning the neighbours chickens were very noisy indeed, and then I looked out of our front window and saw a vixen trotting past and taking a backward glance at the neighbour's gateway as she went down the hill ...

Right folks!  We need to firm up the plans! 

Can I suggest that we meet at 1pm in the car park?

Good morning KEF

I suspect Pdoc may be rather busy - didn't he say he was taking care of his mother for the week?  

The neighbour's chickens are announcing loudly the arrival of fresh eggs this morning

Graham Thomas has a rose and a honeysuckle bearing his name.  

A great horticulturist with little formal training, his biography is fascinating 

I.D. Required please
