I can always build up the soil around the pole and thus decrease the height of the pole. More than one way to skin a cat! Smile Smile

What you good people do not appreciate is that now I know about this I am professionally bound to pass it on to the relevant authorities. Can you let me have Limerick County Council planning office phone number please KS just to save me the bother of looking it up you understand. Your only hope KS is that if you were to measure the height at 3.99m then you would be OK.

I just climbed (in the dark) up the taller of the two poles, Tagwex, and , believe it or not, it measures 3.92 metres. Phew!!!! What a let-off. Smile Smile But I'm sending you a bill, Tagwex for ripped trousers, skinned knuckles and a disease in its formative stage, acrophobia. Mad Mad

I have your address (but I normally keep quiet about these things). How much do you think I should bill you? How much can you afford? Laughing Laughing

Can't believe the weather today. Got up to a white landscape and had snow non stop till about 2. Then the sun came out and melted it. Tonight we've had thunder and lightening.

1. You do not have my address but I do have yours!!!!!!!!!!!
2. You can bill me as much as you want to as I don't care!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
3. Well I don't have a big fancy yacht or cruiser or whatever you Jack Tars call it, and I don't have a private garden to rival the National Botanic Gardens and I don't have a pond the size of a small sea in my back garden for example buuuuuut I am happy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So what I can afford is irrelevant as I wont be paying you any of my hard earned!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hahaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes Margo, let's talk about the weather and let Kindred Spirit and T. rex fight it out.
We've had all kinds today: hail, sleet, snow, rain, thunder, now gales. It reminds me of one of the few poems I can remember fragments of from school. Something about "a dirty little coaster butting up the Channel in a mad March gale."
When I was a student I spent an earyl Easter holiday labouring, laying water mains in weather like this. My fellow students thought I'd been away for a sun holiday when I went back to college. Fat chance!

Oops! Was that a typo I saw?

Oh, dear! COMPLETELY missed the humour in my posts and now begrudgery has reared its not so nice head, so when I see that element, I'm walking away. Byeeee!

Humour, what humour KS? Didn't notice any, apart from the skinned knuckles etc., now I did laugh at that! Not begrudgery at all, total respect actually, you have worked hard for what you have and fair play to you as you have created your idyll and long may you enjoy it. This is one of those cases where, on reading back, the written word doesn't come across well without the intonation in the voice, the cheeky grin, a nudge nudge or a wink for the receiver to realise that it is a wind up. A few of my usual exclamation marks might have helped (I don't use those emoticons). If I was complaining, trust me you would know. Anyway I thought you always sailed away from trouble!!! Hellooo, still friends?

KS, when I saw your photo of last Monday, of the yokes erected, my first thought was that you were going to plant some "Jack and the Beanstalk" style beans on appropriately large supports - like those built by (was it Blowin) last year!

Don't mind Tagrex. He can't help it! His mammy had an awful time with him, I hear!
