As my dear old Granny was fond of saying, 'Never under any circumstances trim a bush with garden shears'. That bit of advice has held me in good stead over the years I can tell you.

They might have been slightly steered to the correct section of the Lewis familiy library ;)

Actually they have a book week at school, which this year is concentrating on fantasy books. On Friday they have to dress up as a character from a book. Daniel has a wizard costume so I suggested Rincewind. He asked about the character so I handed him Colour of Magic - he's up to page 80 already :D :D
Hannah then wanted to be someone from a TP book, so I suggested Tiffany Aching and handed her The Wee Free Men - she's up to page 120 already :shock: :D Hannah's going to dress as a witch, the dress has some pink in it, as well as black - not strictly per the book, but the best we could come up with at short notice :lol:

:lol: :lol: When I was much younger (ind this is my defence) I used to work for a landscape company and the lads used to take it in turns to knock on the customers doors and say 'Morning, I'm here to trim your bush'......just to see if it raised a smile.........I must say, most of the blokes that answered the door didn't laugh :think: :lol:

Would not let any clipper happy man near my bushs. I'd sooner get the loppers out and do it myself.

I'd very willingly let a clipper-happy man trim the Bushes--particularly if they were Dubya and Jeb.

Received a work of art from my youngest grandson. Apparently it's me on the beach. Glad he told me... :lol:

I told Tony I would post a link to this story in today's news--which made me feel good about some people. It seems that a woman named Jennie Webb has adopted a tiny baby elephant found in the grass of the river bank in the Vwazi Wildlife Reserve in northern Malawi. Unfortunately they suspect his mother was killed by poachers. As the story says,
The illegal killing of elephants is rife in Africa, with conservation groups saying that tens of thousands of elephants are being killed each year for their ivory tusks.

But that's not what made me feel good. The main part of the story is about her experiences feeding and raising a bottle baby elephant, who has been named Moses. If you want to read the part that made me feel good, here's the link to the full story and a picture of the little guy.

Hi Broc! Good to see you. Have some more hugs to help cheer you up. :D

The elephant story sounds rather nice, unfortunately I get a "page not available" error. :?

What made me smile was passing my oral exam in organic chemistry. :D I'm now allowed to take the practical course, which I'll try to avoid since I've already done two in the past when I studied chemistry.
Watching some episodes of The Big Bang Theory also made me smile.

I've changed the link to the story in swreader's post - it should work now. :)

And congrats on passing your exam Christian! :D
