Decided to shift some dirt and clean out my stables and yards with this little machine..Grandson, Joe, "Grandmas don't do that, they girls" I have news for that little chauvinistic boy.....
The machine is a horror but does quite a few jobs, a headache from the noise and sore hands from the shuddering juddderin piece of equipment. The broken bones in my fingers from October are quite sore.

All the available holidaying kids into work on the renovations of the old house my youngest purchased for rental. Had done the insides up some months ago with stained floors, new carpets and new paint and three young rentors, girls would you believe, trashed the place. Broken glass, animal waste ground into the new carpets, doors on cupboards off, paint off walls and to top it off their names spray canned on the front porch. My son not a happy chappy and kicked them out forthwith ...I do not know of the legalities but he was so angry as trusted them and did not check up as is away working on construction.
New tenants due to move in next week and do hope he has screened them a little better.

Hope your son's tenant experiences improve next time around.

And yes, Grandmothers don't have to rouse, I think being the photographer is much more important!

Tenants - a right pain in the neck at times. The people who were in our home before used to use the place as :

a brothel/massage parlour
a cattery
a bikers hangout
live band stage

I hope your son has better luck this time round!

You've certainly been busy over the holidays! Wonderful posts.
Those tomatoes are a hypnotic red.

I'm having trouble posting comments on everyone's blog, so fingers crossed this goes through...
