Hallowe'en Party 31 Oct in The Log Cabin, Verdun's Garden

I didnt either. The plastic skeleton was one thing, a severed arm a totally different matter.

Dad has come home, so now he is safely in bed, we can party.

The hospital yesterday had a severed arm lying on top of a heater. I thought it was in particularly bad taste. I hate hospitals.

We still have Flash the white mouse running around the patio. I thought the cats or foxes would have had it by now.

Last time I stopped at a Little Chef on the way to Cornwall, I got a burger in a frozen bun, and ice cream in a hot bowl. I kid you not.

Too late this year to prune. It is likely to lead to silverleaf didease which could kill it.

Prune in summer next year.

 I worked in a pharmacy in Mansfield, a new build next to a Tesco.  We had a man have a heart attack in the shop and die, clutching on to and clearing a bay of shelves as he went down.  Many times after that, we would often come in in the morning, to find an entire bay of sanitary products would be scattered all over the floor. We thought at first, someone had left the fan heaters on, or it was windy, but we never  had a real reason. We made sure everything was OK at night, all heaters off, nothing unstable, and then again in the morning there would be stuff scattered all over the floor. Sometimes odd things would drop off in the day. We used to exclaim. "Harold, stop it". we were convinced we had the spirit of the dead man chucking stuff around. Fairly harmless, he never broke anything.

Is this an escaped pet (or a boas dinner) or a natural occurring albino?
