An evil post (aka classic comedy moment)

Kav's off on travels again, not nearly so exotic this time, only to Aberystwyth. He, and hopefully all our neighbours, missed a classic comedy moment yesterday. I was taking advantage of the beautiful spring weather and doing a spot of heavy lifting in the garden to remove some old posts that used to support a deck outside our backdoor, so we can have a patio at a more sensible height. Nicely concreted in posts of course, very heavy! Four of the five came out relatively easily with a bit of persuasion and the application of leverage with the trusty garden spade. Number five turned out to be a bit of a bugger and I was busy heaving away when the spade turned out not to be so trusty afterall, there was a loud crack and a resounding thud as I promptly landed on my arse! I'm sure I heard the sparrows sniggering! :-)

You'll all be pleased to hear that I got my way in the end - although the lump of concrete is still in the ground, the post is mine!!!!

Flawless victory.

Actually I was rooting for the post.

Ebird said...

Um, you might call that 'cheering' or something else over there.

Em said...

Nope, rooting will do just fine :-) Although we cheer from time to time as well of course!

I'd have to back Em. That way I'd be rooting the rooter.
