This fella was shovelling snow at the age of 94.
What'll be your excuse?
People keel over dead shovelling snow.
Not a bad excuse imo.
Hey Drago, delivery from B&Q!
And now he's brown bread!!!
Died aged 96.
From multiple shelf failure.
You anywhere near 94, age wise?
It's a bad excuse that'll stop you doing anything. People keel over doing all sorts of stuff, even cycling!
Just remember it's cold and to go back indoors for a rest and reheat if needed. Rome wasn't deiced in an hour.
Well, it turned out that my mini tractor was not needed, the ordinary marathon winters would have been sufficient.
The main roads were clear of snow and gritted, I stayed om them. There was some ice, of course, also the side streets, the cycling paths and the pavements are by now iced up with several layers.
My major challenge was exiting my estate: on Thursday I did grit myself a way out, but this morning it was treacherous again.
I'm taking the tractor again tomorrow, snow is forecast for my finishing time, but I'm gonna put some more air in, I was bouncing on the tarmac, slow like a week in jail, got myself two close passes and this time I sympathize with the impatient drivers
You had fun, that's the main thing.
Heart rate was a wee bit up when I got to work ... fixed it by downing a double espresso
Anyway, to answer the above. Did you and were you?
only on wednesdays
I feel that old when I see the young teachers, doctors and coppers.
