Not in the Canary Islands but wheelbarrowing logs and walking to the corner shop for vital supplies, beer & snacks. 13km, who needs the gym/


There you go Idle...

Were you trading the logs for the vital supplies? But surely the snacks and beer would not all have fitted into the wheelbarrow for the return journey? Or were the bulk of the beer and snacks consumed before returning? Idle would have been more specific and given us the low-down on the lady at the corner shop.

Well, now it looks as though we won't be seeing each other for some time, so , I would like to wish each and everyone of you the best of wishes for the future. When we come through this we will all be stronger, mentally and physically. We don't know when games will resume but I hope we all pull through it and hope to see you all in the not too distant future

Experts saying 12 months of social distancing, things don't look good for anything anytime soon if correct.

Living in the middle of nowhere has some advantages

Those logs.
You could have ground them up and turn into pulp to produce handmade artisan bog rolls. Would have made you a fortune.

Its a bit like Columbus, we are on a journey, we don't know where we are going, when we get there we won't know where we are, when we get through it we won't know what we did and when we return to normal we won't know where we have been

Given our age and infirmities, Idle, I think we can probably guess the likely destination of our journey. Probably see you there, though it depends into which circle the handcart deposits us.

We're busy building barricades across the main roads into the county with the OFTA (Old Folks Territorial Army) manning them and repelling all strangers with their walking sticks and Zimmer frames.

A break from the logs today, emptied one raised bed for demolition, topped up two others. Now sat in the sun, very pleasant

It's all about perspective isn't it. Me and Tom, likely to go first, you could put John Griff in that category but he is indestructible
