They are the way of the world in any village
Large or small.
-Mrs E had a fall at home and broke her hip. I saw her in her hospital bed yesterday..she was a little confused. In a bid to orientate her, I promised to enter one of her hydrangeas into the flower show
She used to win a load of certificates in the old days
- Graham.'s dogs got out on the main road yesterday and one got struck by a car. She galloped panic stricken down the lane with concerned commuters after her, but we couldn't find her . Graham thinks that she's hiding away in one of the sheep fields.
- a large cucumber was left on the cottage wall by an unknown donator....I presume it was to be entered into Class 32 of the show
-Alun H called in with last year's best garden cup, he's justified in his pride of his Japanese garden
- Mrs Parry, called to say she had several cookery entries for me. She has a big forceful Welsh lilt and always refers to me formally as "MISTER Gray"
- the Flintshire volunteer association telephoned to say that they had double booked our notice boards that we use to display the children's art.....I was a little sharp with my reactions
-a man on a mobility scooter was seen painting the Church's notice board ..I didn't recognise him but he waved
-I bought the ingredients for my " boiled fruit cake" my nemesis Terry hasn't made his yet..or so he says
Like I said little dramas
If anyone has an entry for the show and is unsure of the entering procedure please contact me..please see my contact details on the " official" blog site ( click on link)
LOOKS AS THOUGH WE ARE GOING TO BE SHORT OF VEG ENTRIES THIS YEAR ( one of our main contributors is unable to join in with the show this year)
SO IF ANYONE HAS VEG THAT THEY COULD ENTER IT WOULD BE WONDERFUL IF YOU COULD DO SO!
Gay Gordon's 10lb fruit cake
Well I have seen everything now!
A few minutes ago, as I was talking to Val & Peter about their fuchsia entry, Gay Gordon careered down the main road in his invalid buggy towards us!
" I have a cake for you!" He bellowed " it's been soaked with half a bottle of sherry!"
The cake itself was perched precariously in the footwell of the buggy and was covered by a tea towel
" it's for your open allotment day" Gordon sang out
" it's over 10lbs- you need 2 men to lift it!"
He wasn't far wrong.....
I explained that we are not holding an open day this year but I would use the cake in the flower show,
Which Gordon seemed pleased about
The cake was so heavy, that it had to stop twice on the way home to rest the monster on London Road's stone wall
