Dry Grindle

I fixed the marine pump at the base of the grindle, a ghastly business diving down to remove a worm that was caught in the impeller. Well I chickened out of the diving in and bailed it out first instead, but I still had to remover the worm.

I am going to show my ignorance and ask what is a grindle?

A Grindle is an underground dungeon in the garden used by hoblins.

I'm intrigued Martin - elaborate further please!

I must confess that I helped them to dig it and put in a four feet high oak door that i made for them. I did most of the stone work too. If you need to see a picture of one of these rapscallions then I can put one up for you in another journal entry named Hoblin. I hope that I have made it clear.

I'd love to see a picture of your hoblins!

Great to have unusual features in the garden and after all the little people need somewhere to live.
