Re: Leisurely Scribbles (part 5)
I passed on those garden tip to the missus RJ, sheís the gardener in this family.
This was my introduction to a new forum I joined for over 70ís, I wanted to give the impression that Iím a friend of the earth which most of them there are, they take it all very seriously and are partricular who they let join.
Whatcha think of this for an entrance then?
Hello everyone, my name is Harold Hopkins, everyone calls me Hopper so feel free to do so, I live on the side of a mountain in County Kerry. Ireland. I do my bit for the environment and try to recycle whatever I can and Iím of the opinion that nature can work alongside technology to create a harmonious partnership for the needs of today, for example, I have satellite internet via a dish I made by painstakingly sewing large dried up cow pats together using wild mountain flax as thread, I then coated the whole thing with pine tree resin and it dried rock hard in the Sun, works great but the smell is unbearable on a hot summers day and thereís nothing but shite on all the TV stations.
I had a friend who is an Eskimo and he tried to make a dish from a block of ice, took him months to carve out a hollow using seal bones as tools, when he finished his ice dish it worked for a while but then his computer froze up on him and I havenít heard from him since, itís possible he also froze up as he was always up on top of his igloo patching the melting holes in the dish with snowballs.
Iím a retired church warden, I used to sweep the sins out of the confession boxes after the sinners had all gone home, it was a very tough Parish in a big city so my job was not an easy one, heavy sinners the lot to them, folks should learn to recycle their sins, take them home with them in a bag and use them again and again instead of just dropping them on the confessional floor as soon as they receive absolution.
But thatís all in the past now and Iím delighted to meet you all on here, looking forward to my next project which will be making a super soundbar from a pumpkin.
Harold (Hopper) Hopkins.
