On hire to move a BW butty boat.

Looks quite continental from the photo,or somewhere in Chester even. I like the buildings - someone with 'flair' must have designed them! The boat could do with 'tarting up'!


Comment by Philip G. on 12th March 2019 at 10:48
Nice photo Ron.
I like the boat's sober green colour and, also, its impression of being able to punch above its weight. You've also captured a nice cluster of syrupy water reflections. But what sort of person made those magnificent rope fenders!

My Wife of 23 years left me last Saturday. She took the kids, and has left me with her new boyfriend Mohammed... i miss her so much

Please help a fella out.
Love,
Kieth Anderton

Philip G....given a big enough pair of knitting needles I could. {;-)


Comment by Hugh Wilson on 12th March 2019 at 14:18
Keith,
Why has she left you with her boyfriend Mohammed - I would have thought that she would have taken Mohammed with her and the children when she left??


Comment by Mick on 12th March 2019 at 15:28
At one time I could make a rope fender


Comment by Ken R on 12th March 2019 at 16:10
Good photo Ron, great to have you back, interesting subject, "I'm the boss boat"


Comment by Alan on 12th March 2019 at 19:05
It's a wind up.


Comment by Philip G. on 12th March 2019 at 19:47
No doubt you're made of stern stuff Anne, but I think you'd need an able bodied chap to help you pull the yarn through - the initial push would, of course, be well within your compass. And, nay, I wouldn't be playing any part in that heave-ho business, preferring, instead, to give vocal refrain at well-chosen intervals.
This is part of what be would be my opening line:
Come, cheer up, my lads, . . . .

Is that Hearts of Oak, Our Philip? xx


Comment by Anne on 12th March 2019 at 22:09
Just noticed there looks to be something remarkably like a pair of giant knitting needles ready for the job. All I need now is a couple of able bodied chaps.


Comment by Veronica on 12th March 2019 at 23:01
"Eats,Shoots & Leaves"
A book about punctuation by Lynne Truss....
Useful to avoid misconceptions.


Comment by Philip G. on 13th March 2019 at 01:02
It certainly is, Irene; your fine musicianship more-telling than a full mains'l.


Comment by Veronica on 13th March 2019 at 12:01
Anne there's a few could help to 'wind up' for you.....;o))


Comment by Fred on 15th March 2019 at 04:44
Mick is there anything you can;t do.
