Welcome Joculator! I love the signature!
I was taking a look at your website - looks really interesting. The things you English people get up to with wooden poles and balloons on stick.
Balloons? No. They're traditionally dried and inflated ox bladders. A bit of a bu**er to prepare, and a bit whiffy at times, but they last for ages.
You do need an understanding partner, when you have twenty or so of the things up in the attic, drying out by the hot water tank.
Thanks for the welcome from you and chris.ph
I want to die peacefully in my sleep, just like grandpa; not screaming and panicking like his passengers.
