Our wish to move the smelly old fuel tanks outside into the garden and lessen the risk of immolation was met with total incomprehension. Planning officials would look across their desks in complete stupefaction. We would have had a warmer response if we'd suggested building a 300 metre tall revolving statue of Homer Simpson. Now, after months of discussions over drainage, ground water conditions, insulation standards and access points the approvals have come through. At seven this morning the team arrived to begin the installation. A large mechanical digger, two white trucks and a team of seven have delivered a huge fuel tank. Like enraged worker ants they have been digging away and have excavated a hole five metres deep and four metres across. The only problem is that the hole isn't where it is supposed to be. Oh, and did I happen to mention they've uncovered the main drainage pipe ?
***** Breaking News ****** - The dreaded knock on the door. The head hocho standing there. 'Profound apologies but the digger has broken the drainage pipe'. More, possibly much more , tomorrow. The boyz of course think that Christmas has come early - smells, and lots of them ! Humans worry about smells - dogs just love them. Way to go .
Oh my goodness!! Are you sure that you wouldn't rather have had the statue of Homer Simpson? I do hope this latest "glitch" is easily resolved!! At least the Boyz are happy about it...ReplyDelete
Get Mme Bay to sort them out!ReplyDelete
oh geez! sounds like you are in for an interesting and smelly day!ReplyDelete
Hilarious! I absolutely love your dry wit! However, I seriously hope all turns out well. In Oklahoma, breaking the drainage pipe would not have elicited such mannerly apologies. More like profane excuses. So, one brownie point awarded the French today!ReplyDelete
Zoot alors!!! We think your expanded vocabulary will include much stronger words by the time this latest drama is over.ReplyDelete
In the meantime,
Wirey woofs of compassion.

Oh wow! I'd say that you're in for learning some very colorful French today! I hope you have some good spirits saved away for later. You are likely to need them!ReplyDelete
I was worried about that all the way through. Drat. You are in for a most interesting day, I fear. Fortunately the boys will have a ball. All day.ReplyDelete
Thinking of you!
Could you perhaps place the oil tank inside a revolving statue of Homer Simpson? That might please everyone.
