Eh, there's nowt wrong wy Goblins, especially the male ferret type ones; for the uninitiated a male ferret is known as a Hob, I have one at my feet as I type this and I am not refering to the bottled type. He name is Frodo, I also have a Jill ferret known as Freya, My daughter christened them not me by the way.
Stay Happy, Stay safe, the Luddite.

Re: something wrong.

honestly dotti why did you bother with parsley. that along with water cress seem two of the most pointless plants we have around. at least taddies mint has a good smell to it even though you might not like it. suppose its each to their own as i do not eat lamb but have mint sauce on other stuff.

Yes I do take them down to my local, the first time I did it the young lass behind the bar recoiled in horror; "Ooh those things bite don't they", she almost screamed but after watching some of the children that I allow to stroke the little Polecat Female, things began to improve with mothers asking for photographs of their tots playing with the ferrets; Until, (someone?) complained to the council and the Lass who owns the pub had to say "I am sorry but I shall have to ask you not to bring them in any more, the Hygiene people are threatening to remove my licence". Thats ok I replied its not your fault but I can still sit in the beer garden with them, so all is not lost.
Happy days still to come.

Re: something wrong.

Monkey Hanger, anything at all that grows through my endeavours is much appreciated, except those weeds which I am a dab hand at producing. My husband was a good gardener both with vegetables and flowers. However, a miniature rose bush that he planted some years ago took off and is now much taller than me! No-one believes me when I tell them what it is, and it never flowers to prove I am telling the truth.

Here’s something for you to think about. My husband had a Happy Plant that was healthy and needed little maintenance. A couple of days after my husband passed away the Happy Plant died – just like that.

Re: something wrong.

Taddy, we had a ferret at one time. She (Sally) lived with us for about 6 months. We used to bring her out of her cage and let her run around the lounge-room. Not exactly the most loveable of animals but quite cute. However, we decided she must be lonely and so gave her to a man who had a sort of ferret farm where she could have her pick of boyfriends. Hope that made her happy.

Depends what you class as "CUTE", Freya, the little Polecat Jill loves nothing better than to curl up on my shoulder and fall asleep whilst I am watching T.V. it causes a little friction sometimes if we have folk visiting but then again if they don't like it I tell them that they are free to leave at any time.

Love me, love my Fretling! I suppose you've got a flat cap & a whippet somewhere too?

Never owned a whippet Dave but I did used to make my own purse nets and gate nets and spent many hours on the fells around Clitheroe with my little Jack Russel, twelve bore shotgun and ferrets during winter time, Me and Mrs taddy fed our two oldest youngsters on rabbit pies, Hare stews and the like. Nowadays I struggle to kill anything, flies and bluebottles being the only things I now class as fair game whilst armed with just a fly swotter. Never owned a flatcap but was renowned for always wearing a Deerstalker.

Did the 12 bore & 410 when younger (13-14ish we started), Dad would take my younger brother & me out over the local farms, we'd take down what we needed & a couple for the farmer, if I'd had a loaded finger I think we'd probably have had more.



You can add pheasant, partridge & pigeon to that list of yours, only problem being, tasty as the game pie was, you had to bite very carefully or some dental work would be due for the incautious.

taddy if your wonderful allotment is not taxing you enough ... my garden has been totally ignored this year .. the only thing that has been done is ive mowed it .. due to not being able to .. if you want to do some weeding ...

Re: something wrong.

Thanks for the invite Shillelagh but I will have to pass on that one as I am still busy with my own allotment, earlier this week I picked four pounds of damsons, my first crop from a tree I planted as a two year old five years ago, Mrs Taddy has turned them into Damson jam along with the Blackcurrant and Strawberry jams that she made earlier in the year. (yes I am getting spoiled) but I love it.

Can't get better than homemade jams & preserves, you're a lucky fella seeing as your Missus still does traditional things.

I am with you 100% on that Dave, she has been looking after me for the last 68 years (we have been married for 64 of them); we were as they say "childhood sweethearts", Hazel was 14 and I was 16 when we met in 1963.
