You may recall that my darling FL decided to build a dam in the bog, in order to create a pond .
From looking at this picture, you could be forgiven for thinking that he had succeeded.
Witness the brave captain, launching his rubber duckie!
Regrettably, I have to report that this is not the site of the dam, but the land adjacent to it.
FL employed a contractor to come in and cut the grass on the fields. He had hoped to sell it as
cattle feed, but it turned out to contain too many tansies... but I digress.
The tractor driver took the wrong turning at the foot of the hill and ended up "lairt" in the bog. He had to call home for assistance, and a second tractor travelled 12 miles across the Shire to pull him out.
The mud-churning which ensued created a rather effective pond, don't you think?!
You just gotta love the man!
