Jungle Drums


I have to strim the field today, the recent wet and warm weather has made it look like a jungle. It's a massive horrible job and I was just getting ready when there came a tap, tap tap on the kitchen window. The window facing the lane.
It was Pat, the animal helper, I thought it was about the Flower Show Meeting which takes place at Auntie Glad's tonight.
In actual fact Pat wanted me to check on Auntie Gladys. She had heard that she had " fainted" in church on Sunday and had spent an overlong and fruitless time in A& E before being sent home and was now a little worried after seeing Gladys herself at Bingo last night at the Memorial Hall where she had seemed very slightly confused.
I had a sense that the village ranks have been marshalled to close somewhat, especially given the fact that Gladys' family are away on holiday.
So before I start work, I am now off to see Gladys now, I am sure I won't be the only one.
I hope things are ok.

  6. It's good to know (but not at all surprising) that the village is a place where ranks are closed.

    My warmest wishes to Aunty Glad

  35. I hope that the living legend - Aunt Gladys - is okay. There are lots of other ways of putting off the strimming. For example you could paint your front door and then watch the paint dry. Puce would be nice.
