We decided to have the last palm tree removed and our postman said he would do it , well we sat in the sun lounge and watched this man at work ,it was a delight to watch a professional at work ,and then when he was finished another man a friend of his came the next day and removed all the pieces of palm and cleared all the saw dust away clean as a whistle (why do we say that ) ,it was all better to watch than TV and the price was well worth it ,I asked the postman why are you working as a postman ? his reply "I enjoy doing it "

If he had been a gipsy instead of a postman when you were paying him he would have said "cross my palm with silver " :wink:

Chas I think we are all children at heart and it is exciting to watch a tree coming down. I suppose being a postman guarantees a steady income. Bee

A brush and shovel would have been of no use as the garden is covered with chippings ,he had placed sheets all over the garden and just as well as the sawdust was everywhere and he had to come the next morning as it was dark when he left ,oh and I think we all have a wife like that :roll: :lol:

As a follow up I needed a plumber to unblock the upstairs toilet and the postman knew one and he came ,called a firm with a pressure hose took the old toilet away and installed a new one and again the plumber was good at his job ,but what it does mean is that our 12 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren will not be getting presents off us this year as the total for the palm the new toilet and all the work has cost us a total of €950 a months pension :(
