  1. I hear goats do a better job, wonder if there is a side line in goat milk to pay for itself

    • I was thinking along the lines of something with a little more horsepower than a goat.  Donkeys are more horse size? 

    • I can't ride home from the pub on a goat.  Well, I could I suppose but I'd look silly.

  2. geese…short grass..superb alarm system…will attack visitors…eggs and meat…okay a bit of crap to deal with they ain't choosey where they drop it…they don't drink whisky nor do they smoke but one cannot have everything.

    • Now that is an excellent idea.  There's no problem keeping them out of the house so they can shit where they like [Penny does that already].  I wonder how they would get on with the dog?

      • they'd keep her in her place unless you get goslings then they could make her mother goose…that would entertain any tourists who wander to your asylum gates.

  3. No problem here, just leave your gate open and next thing you know there's a flock of sheep working their way through your grass.  The only slight problem is they don't always stick to grass!!!

    • There's a two fold problem there.  The first is that the dog would get out, and the second is that I wouldn't be guaranteed sheep.  I'd be as likely to wake and find the place full of cattle or tourists' tents.

  4. Don't you have a tyre repair shop near you, GD? Puncture repair costs me €10 down at Theodoros' shop – and that's on my 3.5 ton van, where he takes off the wheel, does the repair, re-fits the wheel and checks the pressure on the other 5 tyres.

    • Nearest tyre repair place is in Skobieville.  They'd fix my puncture and then rob the wheel.  Anyhows I doubt they'd have much experience with tractor tyres.

      • I may have been in my cups last night, but I'm sure I replied to the comment from Bill above. And yet it seems to have disappeared into yhe aether. I don't suppose it got swallowed by your spam eating machine, did it? Or did I just imagine writing it? Maybe I should lay off the local red wine.

        I don't think it was a very profound missive, so its absence will be no loss to the world.

        If indeed I (metaphorically) penned it at all.

  5. As far as I am aware, donkeys know fuck-all about lawn mowers.

    I've heard that cats know a thing or two about motorbikes, if that's any good to you?

  6. Still waiting out mud season over here. And I can wait on mowing any grass since I have to:

    Replace the other half of the stockade fence that sits between my backyard neighbor and myself.

    Stack 4 cords of next season's firewood.

    Prepare and re-seed the part of my property that was dug up  in order to repair my backyard neighbor's water line after I stack that 4 cords of firewood I was talking about.

    Rake up the leaves I wasn't able to rake up last year.

    I figure I should be ready to start mowing the lawn by next spring then?
