No ride today due to another pressing task in hand.
The Cul de Sac in which I live is very friendly and if you have a major job to do- You call a work party and the neighbours give you a hand. Now one of the neighbours has a skill that most of us want and that is he is an Electrician. Several of us have used his services but what can the rest of us do in return for him giving his time to us?
So last night- We had a party in my garden for him. It was his 60th so something to celebrate but He has a very small garden- and we don't. Plenty of free flowing wine and beer to hand and the bar-B-que worked overtime. But that was not the reason for not riding.
He had a tree in his garden that was a bit overpowering. So it was decided that today- we would take the tree down for him. Started at 10- and he left at 7 for his holiday in Florida. 6 hours later and the tree is no more. Branches shredded and on the compost heap and plenty of logs for the Bonfire.
So if you see a smug Englishman walking round Orlando in the next week- if his name is Albert- tell him His tree has gone. And his fence- and the Conservatory has a very small hole on it and a bigger hole on the other side.
So Missed ride this weekend- Nothing for it but I might be taking a sickie this week to get a ride in.
couple of pics and the garden is small and there was a heck of tree to fit in it when on the ground. I am in the green T and Wayne is the tree feller. Glad I am not the only one that climb trees. Don't mind climbing them- It the falling out that I no longer like.
And to keep it bike related- Managed to talk the others into a bike ride when Albert gets back- They want him to suffer as much as we did today and they want to see him suffer.
