I have done a bit in my time... Especially my 15yrs as a caretaker... T'other day her indoors suggested grinding the old mortar out around my bay window and repointing it due to a small damp patch. Did that... Took me 5hrs to repoint it... Up and down.. Bending.. Kneeling etc... At the end I was jiggered.. So I take my hat off to you who have done manual and industrial work in your lifetime. The day after I was as stiff as a board. .. Interested in this toil I looked the gold old Navvy.... He could shift 12 square metres of muck a day.... That's equivalent to digging a trench 3feet.wide by 3feet deep to a distance of 36 feet...per DAY.... WOW
