Do you know where you nearest fire hydrant is?

Monday, May 11th, 2009

Excitement in the hamlet this evening, busy watching the world go by, out in the garden painting the newly repaired Bird Table (post coming soon!). Two John Dennis Fire Engines hurtled past towards the next village (this happened last year when someone’s grain dryer burnt down). Ten minutes later one of the engines returned to my hamlet because they couldn’t find the fire hydrant in the nearby village, and someone told them there was on in my hamlet, it’s just been painted by the Council bright yellow, and is just opposite my house. Do you know where you nearest fire hydrant is?

This is the first picture I snapped of the fire engine from my bedroom window.

I think they’ve spotted me there’ off

another one returns…

and then there was two, both came back to fill up.

As I type, one has just returned, that’s four trips….while the house or barn burns down! I can tell because the blue flashing lights are reflecting on my monitor.

I think they must have done, there’s no urgency anymore, and the fire officers are talking to the neighbours, while they look at me, typing!

Fire hydrant still in use, must get a photo!

Repoting to you as it happens…..

Bird Table repair

Sunday, May 10th, 2009

The bird table feet and support have rotten away, so it’s time to repair with some odd bits of wood, I have in the wood shed.

As you can see, the bird table has no base.

But, I’ve got wood, hammer, screws, jigsaw, paint and a chiesel! We can rebuild it!


Bird Table fixed

Well it won’t win any carpentry awards, but it’s fixed and painted, and at least it stands up again.
