    Just borrow a goat. It might eat the tyres of your MH so keep an eye on it.

    Fortunately Jim, not a lot of people around and I doubt they would be risking their own properties by doing some silly thing. There are woods around (eucalyptus forest more like) and on one side olive trees !

    JJ doesn't smoke and won't do BBQ so phewww...:BigGrin: ... but you never know (exhaust must have cooled down by now!)and I have seen a few fires in the distance while in Portugal with JJ.

    He must be playing with his strimmer this minute.... vrooommmmmm:laughing:

    Nothing unknown about this land Mr Jimbohorlicks... I have been looking after it for years... I am familiar with almost every inch of it...

    Just popped away for a few days...

    Great picture, but they recommended a goat, not a lion craftily disguised as a boy :)

    A Scythe Lady Carol, a scythe... no way!

    I am pensioner who can hardly walk...

    Now if Eddie wants to visit and bring his scythe he will be most welcome. ;)

    If they scythe all the grass down I will let them build a tree house as a treat...

    Do you think there might be more old bangers hiding in the long grass?
