Stylish stile

The chap who does my plastering and rendering has a bit of down time at the moment until the weather lets us continue the lime rendering work. As the devil makes work for idle hands I have had him putting in some stiles around the property a task he has more than admirably performed. I would have been happy with a simple two step stile but he seems to be going for work of a rather more substantial nature...wheelchair ramps next?

Now that's one serious improvement I agree with, saves me getting over the fence talking in a high voice.

Albert...I had to stop him getting carried away on another one today.

Make him dig a tunnel lined with concrete And brick,
then you can reach civilisation at your own pace
Manchester would be a good place to end up
If you havent been there its like Liverpool only with people who wax their backs and dont get sentimental about an open sewer (+

Beast...for my sins I worked as a doorman in Manchester for 18 years, I handed out beatings to all and sundry, Manchester was glad to see the back of me.

Beast, I'll do a post on it at sometime. I was based at the Manchester academy and from there I supplied lots of places along with friends (for want of a better description)such as the Noonans and pauls Carroll Massey and flanagan, a nasty bunch but needs must etc.Good money,good fun but terrible people and it's left me with not much love for the British public.

That's a damn good piece of work!

Much better than the dry stone ones in Teesdale, where you need an oxygen mask to climb the several yards to the top, and a long rope to abseil down the other side as well...

Our dog was terrified, and she'd 'bounce' for England...

Plasterer - stiles. Stiles - plasterer.

Nope, went straight over my head.

Always wanted a fabulous life stile. Have to get one.
