This is the weather at the Pits today!
What was the weather like where you are today? This happy chappy is 80 years young and lives next door to Maureen and Elwyn. He certainly had his work cut out preparing the ground for his first crop of broad beans. Wow, that is a lot or digging for a man of his age, I could not do it!

What is he on Maureen, I need some, forget the Philosane! That's if they still make it

maureen said...

philosan is for over 40s, do they make something for over 80s,i dont know i think his lifestyle is wait for it,, couple of glasses of wine or cider,and a few cigarets a day,, no red meat plenty of onions, which he grows,and only eats home made bread, he says the shop bread was killing him its poison with all the additives,i will try to find out more.

maureen said...

i forgot he has a jack russel called TIM he had from the rescue

Stu said...

Perhaps he takes 2 Phyllosan a day now he's 80. And yes his onions are lovely.

sandra said...

Anonymous said...

elwyn said...

Stu said...

Tina W said...

elwyn said...

ELWYN said...

Tina W said...

maureen said...

Lesley said...

Bean curry mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, does that mean we had beter make sure the porta potti in the caravan is empty! Perhpas we better park outside the loos.
It will be worth it, nothing better than a good tasty curry,
Hope we are invited!

Tina W said...

Good on you Mo will lend a helping hand if you require.

Lesley said...

Tina is very good with squirty cream! And I still have two packets of custard in the cupboard!

Stu said...

I just hope that when the cat is let out of the bag it doesn't end up in the curry.

maureen said...

oh dear god,, i just counted how many will be there, about 12.. better take a big saucepan lesley is cooking the rice, and garlick bread, i think tina will be preparing the salad she does not know yet, and we will give sandra a job, maybe a sweet or pudding, she is good at that,

maureen said...

local folk are welcome as long as you own a bedlington or two,,dont know what day yet.will let you know.

Stu said...

Stu and Angie will have some beer to cool down with after because they don't drink. ( Ha Ha )

elwyn said...

cos you dont drink, stu and angie can be in charge of the wine celler,are you up for that.

debra said...

perhaps we should ask albert what is the best thing to drink, to keep old age at bay.

Stu said...

Taf water!

elwyn said...

the best we can do is spring water, i will have to take a photo of the spring its at the back of my field

??? said...

No-one will get any beer or wine if it's left to the Yearleys but they'll have great hangovers.

Anonymous said...

Is that from the spring in the old dumped matress or condensation on the caravan springs?

shiela said...

no its from the sheep at the top of the mountain

billy said...

thats one of the best scare crows i have ever seen (lol)

elwyn said...

well done billy that made me laugh

Paula said...

Aye, in Wales we don't do 'spring water' when we get thirsty we just squeeze a sheep - their wool holds loads of water and you can have any flavour you like - as long as its sheep flavour!

Lesley Caines said...

Well done Albert! keep drinking your wine and cider and may you live to dig your garden for many more years yet!

(Albert is polish)

stu said...

Count Stu & Angie in for the curry

maureen said...

that is lovely kev i will have to show albert,he will be delighted,

Stu said...

I've heard that his secret to long life is the vodka he makes from the potatoes that are left after Mo and Elwyn have stolen the rest.
He doesn't get much but it's good stuff.

Lesley said...

Kev where did you learn Polish?

maureen said...

its the quiet ones you have to watch,,, kevs mother taught him to polish?

elwyn said...

the potatoes make whiskey, if i remember thats what it tasted like

Tina W said...

Tina for curry please(not Tony!!)

Lesley Caines said...

Whar does Tony want? Can't leave him out?

pete said...

if his name is blair you can

Lesley Caines said...

Hey kev you can polish! My van needs a real good spit, polish and wax!

Tina W said...

Don't worry about him,I will make him a sarnie or summit.

maureen said...

you can keep the polish for kev,,,but i want the spit and wax to sort out tina, no i am not a bad loser,what makes you think that

Tina W said...

I never sead you were a bad loser..think we have crossed wires.
please don't wax me-I'm not into pain and torture,bad enough when you used a metal grooming comb when you cut my hair.lol

Tina W said...

Will bring anormal comb to welks as my hairdresser has left to have a baby(rather inconsiderate of her I think!)please no-one else want a trim or Maureen will really kill me.

maureen said...

thanks tina angela has just asked me ,i dont know about sandra yet,thats it you have got me cooking curry / cutting hair / and waxing, i will need a holiday after, can you think of anything else, oh yes helping you with your new wind breakers..

Tina W said...

If it's really cold you could walk the dogs if you like as the wind gives me earache,(no doubt I'll have wind after the curry!)

Anonymous said...

If someone's doing waxing ,can they do my bikini line. I'm into pain in a big way.

maureen said...

you will have to make yourself known, before i say yes to that

bunty said...

ouch-give me a razor any time.

Anonymous said...

Blodwin said...

I have just bought a battery opersted bikin line trimmer with heart shaped ten plates for those special occasions!

Beat that!

pete said...

i cant beat that its polish

elwyn said...

well i have just looked in the garden and alberts still stood there ,i think he must be dead maureen should have told him she had finished taken the photo,s

elwyn said...

oh god ozzy,s just cocked his leg up on albert , he thought he was a pole.

Stu said...

I thought young Albert was eaten by a lion called Wallace. (one for the oldies)

Anonymous said...

No, he was Victoria's hubby.

Tina W said...

Hope he doesn't abdicate before you get your veggies.

Bunty said...

I thought her husband was a football player.

scary said...
