I took this picture for you today, they are a few of the Iris that I planted last Autumn
Several of you have asked how my hand is getting on after I accidentally pruned it last week. I will show you so you can see for yourselves. I think you will agree that it looks like I'm going to live after all, the grubby hankie and sticking plaster did the trick. Thanks again for all your best wishes, its really kind of you.

A BLAST FROM THE PAST.
These entries come from my diary written in 1992. The big house mentioned in these entries is not the same one that I’m now employed at.

Friday 21st February 1992.
There is trouble at work with the septic tank, the outlet pipe seems to be blocked. Dave has got Brian in to get it unblocked. Went to Summer Bridge to help Dave lift a concrete lintal in to his house. Vicki has been getting and sawing wood this afternoon.

Brian was the estate joiner so I'm not sure why he got the job of unblocking the pipe, but its the way it was there, everyone helped each other. Dave and Jackie had bought their own house in Summer Bridge and Dave was busy doing some alterations so I went over with him a couple of times after work to give him a hand with stuff.
Best Wishes,
Bob.

Hi Bob ~~ Thanks for your comments and kind words. I am certainly pleased with the gifts I received from my American friend.
Glad to see that your hand is healing
well. Take care, Best wishes, Merle.

Hi Bob -- That hand is looking a lot better! Don't forget to give Vickie credit also. Hankies and sticking plaster yes, but you must have had her help a lot too.
Your Iris are looking good. Ours are late bloomers (we just have two) because they are on the north side of the house.

OUCH... it looks like it's healing, but that cut still made me cringe. Yikes--no wonder you were out of commission for a bit.
