Any regular readers of this blog will no doubt know that I have been up against it just lately trying to get all my Barn Owl boxes up. Nearly a whole evenings was lost one day last week when Daz very inconsiderately fell off the ladder!!!!! So this evening it was time to make amends and hopefully catch up with some more Barn Owl box erecting. Col (hammer head) Green and I were at it tonight and we had a very aggressive target of getting another 4 boxes up.....well that was the plan!!!!!
At the first location, a derelict barn not from from the village of Foston all was going well until Col decided to hit himself right in the middle of his forehead with a hammer.......yes a HAMMER!!!!!! Can you believe he did that???? No I can't either!!!!! Anyway, he staggered down off the ladder with blood dripping off the end of his nose, before first aid could be applied I asked Col if he wouldn't mind going back up the ladder to complete the box erection, I dare not repeat what he said but in no uncertain terms he made it quite clear it was my job to finish, would you argue with a man with a hammer in his hand!!!!
For prosperity sake I got Col to pose for the camera, well I couldn't miss this opportunity.......could I!!!
