Came across this rather marvellous flower just outside the church walls. That good that even Captain Chaos opted against cocking his leg against it. The ultimate sign of respect. Unusually the dog only passes up on such treats if stinging nettles are in the immediate locality.

Stinging nettles in the locality.

Not an area you ever see Captain Chaos lifting his rear left leg off the ground to ….. Even the farmers cows avoid here…… But it is a great area for harvesting nettle tea….

It’s also a great place to drop something. This afternoon I was taking a works call. In a desperate attempt to stop falling asleep or going crazy, I went outside. Outside with the mobile, pen, paper and mug of coffee. As the work call dragged on the duel prospect of sleep and madness increasingly beckoned. To distract myself I moved to the fence adjacent to the mutant nettles. Why, I do not know…… Then the inevitable disaster. The pen and paper toppled off the fence and with unwavering precision they were consumed by the monster stinging jungle. Taking the notes I had made during one of the worlds most boring ever phone-calls into oblivion.

Two options

1) get seriously stung fishing the notes out,

2) own up and basically restart the dreaded work call again recapturing the facts and data.

Only one sensible option I could ever take. Neither….. End the call and just guess……

Does that make me a bad person πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  1. I love doing work outside – just feeling the warm ground under my bare feet and praying that I remember enough of what the people on the call are saying… it’s tough for me to focus during the summer months.

  2. Not in the least. Maybe your local chemist sells devices for old people? Like a long stick-like things with a “hand” that you can use as a grabber? Depends how badly you want the notes…

  3. What a beautiful water lily. We have areas with fields of them right now. A blue/purple carpet. Regarding the nettles… I think I would have put on a suit or raincoat and cloves and grabbed the notes. I am a lazy person when it comes to repeating (boring) work… lol
