Christmas present quiz uncovered
Aaaa shoveling stuff ;-)
Its longer than most shovels but would come in handy if it snowed again!
That's a funny looking plant!
Wow, Martin, just what I have been looking for. Is it hardy?
Belated Happy Christmas. Or maybe it's an early Christmas pressie for 2011.
Compost Shovel, for a composting King
Is it a Pizza shovel? I could see the pair of ye cooking our own outdoor pizzas in a bit old iron oven.
To be used in the place of 'double digging'
It's like a snow shovel, l could do with it here, over an inch of snow has fallen in the last hour!
For shovelling coal in a steam locomotive.
Well done Kindred that is the right answer. I will deliver the prizes of ferns to you when you are ready for them.
Oh My God, don't tell me you are adding a steam locomotive to your garden!
Well done, Kindred.
You are keeping us in suspense! Tell use the whole story
Myrtle, when the time is right, Martin will choochoose to tell us.
ha Ha!I'm babysitting and I'm bored!
Ha ha. That reminds me of my brother in law who is mad about trains. Before we made the garden he had plans to run an actually railway line in our 'vacant' space to run his train because his wife wouldn't let him do it at home. Glad it didn't happen now : ) Nowadays he is heavily involved in the Cavan Leitrim Railroad.
So, what are you going to do with it?
Also can't believe I won a competition with a guess out of the blue. ( Can't believe i won a competion. any competition. )
Rachel, Steve has been totally annoying me in the last two years with the idea of rigging up a mini railway track for the garden. I have time and time again said 'No'. I am NOT turning my garden into a Theme Park.
Well done Kindred, enjoy the ferns.
Jacinta, not a theme park, more like a water park........................hehe
As if there wasn't enough water outside right now. Spilling out of the Heavens. Ponds will get topped up nicely.
Snowing here. I am crazy about steam trains and can never have one , so seeing an advert in a railway magazine for a company that sold things for steam train I ordered a shovel and now i have it. It cost a lot, for they are made to take a lot of work without ever breaking. The blade of the shovel is long as it has to go far into the furness. I will be using it in the garden when I get a chance. Well done kindred, and thanks to the lot of you for making it fun.
I dont know why Martin but I feel a bit let down by that explanation!
I am not I am so happy to have it
Do I not get a consolation prize for guessing a coal shovel???? :-( by the way what are you going to buy next Martin an engineers hat? :-)
Martin, you would have enjoyed Top Gear the other night where Jeremy Clarkson was the stoker on a steam train from London to Edinburgh in a race between the train, a Vincent motorcycle and a Jag XK120. He used a shovel similar to yours!!
Yes that must have been a repeat as the steam train was 'Tornado', a new built 4-6-2 costing over 3 millions sterling. Would give a lot to use my shovel on that footplate.
