FENCES # 1 - FIRST IN A NEW SERIES


NOT THIS



















It's time for a new series I think. Recent series on windows, light switches and the nicest people I've known have either fallen on deaf ears or I've run out of source material.

Looking out of the study window for inspiration I spotted something that will enthral you - a fence.

Yes, a fence which got me thinking of fences that I've known.



I'll start with the fences around our property (3 sides only).




EAST SIDE
This fence is on the East side of our property. It is nice and high and solid and keeps the neighbour's dogs on their own property. Sometimes, if said dogs are barking I throw rocks at this fence to make a big noise and to shut the dogs up. The fence is still in good condition although I don't know when it was erected as it was there when we moved in nearly 10 years ago.

WEST SIDE

Another tall wooden fence also in good condition. This fence is newer than the East side fence but as it was here when we moved in I don't know how old it is. The neighbours here don't have dogs and their house is a holiday home. They are only up here once or twice a month.


.
SOUTH SIDE


The South side fence is a scrappy wire netting thing that is in poor condition. It separates us from some farmland behind. I see no need to replace it in the short term unless Richard comes to stay. There are often cows in the field and they come right up to this fence and chew on the bushes. Richard is afraid of cows so I may have to put up something more substantial.

Well that's it for fences today - I trust that you were enthralled. We at THE CURMUDGEONS INC.ⓒ pride ourselves in keeping readers entertained and informed.

Sometimes my back gets a bit sore and I have trouble getting objects off the floor. It's good to see that you can still stoop so low.

Does that thing I have to tick to leave a comment on your blog say, 'I'm not a Robot." or "I'm not a Robert."?

I don't know how to remove that verification thing.
I like the idea of some kind of "I'm not a Robert." proof though.

THE CURMUDGEON said...

Mmmm, then again - correct spelling and grammar would be proof.

A fence needs ultimately a gate.

MAGIC MOMENT

Yesterday evening I sat out on the deck at sunset and enjoyed a glass or two of wine as I was waiting for my pizza to cook. I set the iPad...
