Back on Track

Posted by Simon

This morning Richard, an English neighbour, arrived here, which in itself was a bit of a surprise as I thought he was in the UK until after the New Year. And another surprise was that he had the parts for my digger. I was over the moon.

I dropped everything I was doing and carried out the necessary repair, which believe it or not was pretty straight forward - makes a change then. I was greatly helped by the person I brought the
spare parts from, who had taken time to explain the best way to go about the repairs. Although I did have to ring him to confirm he had given me the correct part as the one I took off had grooves in it. I was told they do not come with grooves in them. Ah, that much wear then!

So this afternoon I was like a kid with a new toy and played diggers. I was able to smooth out lorry and tractor ruts , fill in holes, and generally make the place a little more pleasant. Maybe one day I'll get my Septic tank and filter beds finished!

  1. Man, you really play hard with your toys! That part looks like it's been through a lot of digging...
