Right, off to visit family - OH will be here in charge of laundry and compost turning - both well within his capabilities but can you let him know if it starts raining and he needs to get the washing in 

See you later 

Potatoes decimated!

I remember when I was at primary school a very long time ago, there were posters of Colorado Beetle on the wall and we were all told to look out for them on potatoes and tell the village policeman if we saw one!  A real threat in agricultural areas!

I remember, a long time ago helping my ex (a builder) to unload concrete lintels at a site on a USAF housing complex - I was dressed for a cold day in overalls, thick jacket and a woolly hat and gloves - a US Airman stood and watched me for a while, then strolled over and started talking to my hub - I continued to unload the truck - the hub then said something to me and I replied - when he heard my voice the airman jumped around looking appalled, called me Ma'am and tried to prevent me from lifting any more lintels, saying that he'd not realised that I 'was a lady' !!!
