Paths , Drives , Smoke Signals and a poor response.

FIRST a Winge… I must have won something for the singularly worst response to a output_JBRaVBcompetition ever. The “guess the filling” in last blog was only responded to by Mick Wood ( and he was not even close ) plus two texts from family and friends ( That were so rude I dare not repeat on line.). Anyway the correct answer was “Lemon Curd ” , Martinas experiment was in fact a very tasty experience I recommend Chocolate cake with Lemon Curd filling to everyone.

Now I bang on about just how rural and remote we are , So remote there are some who still use “Smoke signals” to communicate. The following was one such “powwow” so to speak.

Neighbour ( across the Valley ..)  Morning Maundown “Can I borrow a cup of Sugar ”

The Pile of Stones that are appearing are for us to use building an outer wall for the entrance to match the efforts Martina achieved last week.

I meanwhile set about straightening out the “Spur” and marking out where the next round of fencing is to be erected.
