WW1


WW1
After the recent strong winds these trees in the Plantations look like those on a World War One battlefield.

I remember The Hurricane of the 1980s. We lived in Kent then & the trail of devastation the hurricane left in its wake was unbelieveable.
We were clearing wood & picking up glass for weeks.

Them wet leaves embedded in the road can be deadly if your on a bike

There's twigs and branches all over the place where I live. I should imagine there'll be more with the coming storm.

I remember a few years ago when the council used to clear leaves and branches from the streets. Around where I live it looks like the blitz and no sign of anyone to remove the debris!

What really annoys me is when company's like the electricity and network rail companies mourn about trees causing damage to pylons and railway lines, then turn round and say we have to learn by this. It's easy just cut the trees back a little so they can't cause damage.

Now Mick, remember what I said about being careful when out & about...them 'brothel creepers' would not do you much good walking on slippery, wet leaves !

It reminds me of that song, "The Long and Winding Road". ( ps...Welcome back. Dolly dear.....I've missed your input these last few days). xx

I don't think it was wet leaves he was thinking of walking on with them "brothel creepers" Helen!
Glad to see you back Veronica, where's yo bin? .... Or shouldn't I ask?

I remember a few years ago when central government gave councils funding to clear leaves and branches from the streets.

Well it's nice to be missed. Thanks Irene and Dtease - I've not been anywhere - worst luck! My broadband and landline have been down. It's been like a double lockdown, you don't realise how much it's missed until it's gone! I was like Thora Hird tooting behind the blinds, watching out for BT ( Bl---- Terrible!) for 5 days! When they came it was a slip of a girl who mended the fault. My how the world is changing...she did a good job anyway..

Dolly dear, I had an appointment at Boston House today with regard to my glaucoma and the fact that I need a second cataract operation, and I would have sworn the "consultant", (a lovely girl!), was still at school. We're getting old!

They are so young you feel like you can't trust them to know anything...they look young enough to be grandchildren these days Irene.
