Thanks to AJD for this one

GOLFER AT THE DENTIST
A man and his wife walked into a dentist's office.
The man said to the dentist, "Doc, I'm in one heck of a hurry. I have two buddies sitting out in my car waiting for us to go play golf, so forget about the anesthetic, I don't have time for the gums to get numb. I just want you to pull the tooth, and be done with it! We have a 10:00 AM tee time at the best golf course in town and it's 9:30 already... I don't have time to wait for the anesthetic to work!'
The dentist thought to himself, "My goodness, this is surely a very brave man asking to have his tooth pulled without using anything to kill the pain.
" So the dentist asks him, "Which tooth is it sir?"
The man turned to his wife and said, "Open your mouth Honey, and show him..

The New Forest Show; the final day

Another "quick" rearranging and we were ready for day three;







Red trouser spotting started early today, this one has
a complete suit attached;


Crowds outside our trade stand;

Crowds on the main drag;

A pair of red jeans, I wonder if he will grow up like Dad?



Panama, check. Office shirt, check. Red strides, check. Hush Puppies, check. Where is his tweed jacket?


All thats left is the long journey home;

The motherload discovered

Strange though curiously matching purple hair and top as found by the Tea lady:

Next to Purple woman was red trouser man;
Then along came the well built Nun type bint and her mate on sticks;



The obligatory foreign elderly couple in red strides;



Nice to see was a folding motorbike;

A reasonable footfall on the showground but not enough really to keep the Tea Lady happy;
At last I sseem to have found the source of the dreaded red cords;
See, they seem to be breeding;
A pint of Ringwood more than welcome even if service was very slow;

Day 1 at the New Forest Show

Unpacking and setting up was almost as bad as the last 3 mile drive to the showground and this is the day before it opened. View from the shop wasnt too bad!
The stand looking ok despite the battering it took at Detling, it tried to rain but held of despite some spitting, hotter than a snakes ass in a wagon rut though!
The deer management standd has some nice examples inside;
Thankfully a beer festival supported by Ringwood brewery:
Of course the hunt for red strides continues apace, this one wasnt even complete, pink shorts I ask you?;
Strolling past aunties OB van was this pair;
This one thought standing was too much
And this couple thought that opposites attract, she obviously went to Cheltenham:
Best shout of the day has to be for most innapropraitelky dressed lady at an Agricultural show, cocktail dress and heels;

Water top up time for the birds

Colin, Alex and I spent this afternoon topping off the waterers for the birds, feeders were done as well. A general tidy up (Colin is a star) and a chance to see some of his work:

The waterers;
Delivering 600 litres of fresh water; Richards pump works well especially at the right height and we have the barbed wire!



Colin has built some home made pop holes:


All in all things seem to be moving on;

Been awol for a week or so

So I will apologise, work or rather the winding up of it and the planning of this months work has meant nothing but busy busy. I also managed to lose my new digital camera last monday evening. I will hopefully be a little more active this coming week provided the internet works where I am going.
Its going to use the whole week which is why I'm not available to assist at my day job; The New Forest Show
See you there if you can!

Red trousers at Detling





Remember they walk amongst us and it was only the first day!

Kent County Show Detling

Windiest day of the year (or so it seems) and a showground at the highest point in the county;













Setting up was hard work in the wind;

The Birds, at last the birds

Tonight at last after lots of on the bus of the bus moments the birds finally arrived. Yippee.


300 birds, a big pen and lots of lovely feed and water!
There isnt mushroom inside;

Settled down inside the pen, food scattered about and a lovely evening to begin your career as a game bird!

I felt like being cheered up

So I saw that I hadnt posted this pic from Mr FMT;

Dead deer, check. Classic British Military carbine, check. Happy that I have seen this, to quote Churchill (the TV dog from the insurance ad) Oh Yes!

Thanks Mr FM

A Wasted weekend

Wasted? Yes most definetly, as I sit here typing this I have returned after only one day at what was sold to us as another Game fair but turned out to be a chavvy dog day.
Southend? Well you can keep the place. Thats 2 weekend wasting time and worse than that, wasting money. After what seemed like a bright start we wondered where the customers were. By noon we had barely had to stir apart from the odd water dummy to sell to punters trying this out;

video

By the close of play we had explained to the Lady from Aztec events that this wasnt the sort of event to attract our sort of clients and we cut our losses, packed up and came home.

I hate defeat almost as much as admitting defeat but there are some places you cannot succeed and Southend is definetly one of them. Roll on the next event!

Water water everywhere

And hopefully some pretty thirsty pheasants coming, Misty seemed keen to help so we used the trailer and took all of the dogs with us for what may be their last trip for a while. I dont need the spaniels mixing with the poults


It's rather surprising how long 800 litres of water takes to drain from a domestic tap!
Still here they are ready for the transfer pump on Friday, after that the drums will be used in the top pen to keep the late birds watered!
