Busy Week

Well after seeing nary a soul all winter long we are suddenly overcome with visitors all at once. Some young whippersnappers do be making one of they motion pictures down the lane and afore I knew what I was doing, I consented to them keeping a deer in our yard between shots.

And a needlewoman wants to make photographs of her quilting and gardening gloves out the back. The beeman comes and chats away to his old bees. And then to put the cap on it all the Old Gaffer turns up after years and turns around and says 'Is He In'. I take it he means Amos and I turns round and says 'No he be away labouring with the poor folk'

And what does he say? Nothing less than 'I am looking for a spare back wheel if he's got one.'
What termitery! Comes up here begging back wheels from folks like us who barely have two spokes to rub together.

Well he turns round and goes off but this isn't the end because he puts a note through our door asking for a back wheel. Back Wheel, I'd give him back wheel and no mistake!

The Last Teaparty

So last Sabbath to the Quivering Brethren. And one among the neighbours had brought in a cake depicting the Last Supper with the Lord and his disciples portrayed in icing.

I forebore to partake of such a cake, deeming that if our Good Lord had wanted us to eat such stuff twould have been the Last Teaparty, not the Last Supper. But the other brethren did eat but none could bring themselves to eat the image of our Lord. I now discover that Hester has retrieved it and is keeping it on her window ledge. The face is shown with notably fairer hair than the disciples.

Unseasonable Weather

We all be near freezing at the toilyard today. And one of the ole tranters come in and turned round and said 'We be getting snow, soon, we will.' Snow in bluebell time, I cannot scarce believe what times we be living in. The old front door be now opened as well. Back tyre be as flat as a dead whippet when I come to ride back home so I did push her all the way home. Reuben has been taxed accidentally.

Venturing Out

Effie found the first bluebells down in the thicket, today she did. So Amos opened the front door as to celebrate this notable event. And Berton has lost all his teeth.

Monday Thirsty

Well I be having to play catch up now, Monday Thursday we did go down to the meal at the Quivering Brethen hut seeing as how its a special day, any meal a Starkadder gets makes it a special day in these hard times. Well we managed to get us there just in time and what does we find?

The visiting elder a leading of worship on his old guitar. We all had to stand and sing afore we got to any feeding. And he do go on and on and on, he even did start singing I could sing unending songs. Well I nearly did reply I canna sing unendingly on a void and empty stomach after a long days toiling away through the mud.

\It be nearly half hour afore the good food did come. And I did note that the little ones were allowed to sit at the table and draw pictures in place of having to stand up and sing. I think that us grown folk should be allowed to do that in meetings as well as the little ones.
