My uncle had collected a wheelbarrow full of manure and was wheeling it home. On the way he passed a retirement home, where an old man was leaning over the fence chatting to passersby. The old man asked him "what are you going to do with that manure?" and my uncle answered that he was going to put it on his strawberries in the garden.
The old man answered "Oh, they put cream on ours here"
Boom Boom.
(Apologies to Flanders & Swann - I think!)

Sounds as though you will have to be really selfish for a year or two, especially with the rhubarb!!! :D :D LOL Hope the strawberries do well. :D

Hi Ann,

Selfish isnt the word what with all the females around, 1 daughter 1 grand
daughter,1 daughter in law and another 2 grandaughters to fight off
when I want to enjoy it all,even the dog and the 2 budgies are females.
I sometimes think that being a widower has its disadvantages,I dont
get much support from my son who doesnt have a sweet tooth like his
father has.
More times than not he sits back and laughs at my situation when the girls
try to give me a hard time.

Oh well I have broad shoulders and they know that they will get theres in
return sometime down the track.
Anyway have a nice day.

Regards,
Paul. 8)

I love rhubarb and we used to get a stalk with a "poke" of sugar for dipping in the 'good old days'. :D But when went back to Scotland in 1990 and Mum made here rhubarb sponge I ate it. Mmmmmm I was almost crippled for a week. :cry: :cry: I had not had any for years-not available or too dear. I now grow it for my daughter and grandchildren. As seedlings they did produce a bit last year. :D

syrup.
