Oooops - Cap'n John

I Have Some Serious Apologising To Do!!

Following DJs loss of shoe that I wrote about yesterday, I tried getting hold of the farrier a couple of times ... left a couple of messages ... then thought "Oh Well I'll try tomorrow" ... so put my phone on charge.

This morning is a lazy morning, so I have just turned my phone back on - 8.30am to find a message from Ian last night at 7pm ... to say he is on holiday as of today!!!  However he did say that if I could reach him he would see to DJ, I phoned, but with little hope of any luck as I am 20mins drive away.

Now comes to the grovel - 

Firstly to Toni and her husband ... Ian turned up there at 7.50 this morning to do DJ!!!  They both have colds so were having a lay-in!!!  OOOOpppps  ... do I also point out it is raining!!!

Then I have to apologise to Ian ... I haven't paid him!

So - I have phoned and spoken to Toni's husband ... but as soon as I am organised I am off to buy a bottle of wine ... and some chocolates!!!

A Song For All Gardeners -

As most of you know I am not a keen gardener but was sent this last year and thought I would share it with you ... It is a couple of extra verses for the famous hymn "All Things Bright And Beautiful" 

Hope you enjoy singing along!

All things bright and beautiful......
But what we never mention, though gardeners know it’s true.
Is when He made the goodies, He made the ‘badies’ too!
All things ‘spray’, and ‘swatable’, dissasters great and small.
All things ‘paraquatable’, the Lord God made them all.
The greenfly on the roses, the maggots on the peas.
Manure that fills our noses, He also gave us theese.
The fungus on the ‘goose-gogs’, the ‘club root’ on the greens.
The slugs that eat the lettuce, and chew the aubergines.
The drought that kills the fuschias, the frost that nips the buds.
The rain that drowns the seedlings, the blight that hits the spuds.
The midges, and mosquitos, the nettles and the weeds.
The pidgeons in the green stuff, the sparrows on the seeds.
The fly that gets the carrots, the wasp that eats the plum.
How black the gardeners outlook, though green may be his thumb.
But still we gerdeners labour, midst vegetables,and flowers.
And pray what hits the neighbours will somehow bypass ours!!!
All things bright and beautiful.........
