  1. Test-rode the postie on the drive and POWER-SLID it into mum's flowerbed.
    Thanks god for the fence and 2" galvanised flatheads...that's fixed again...
    (wore all the good gear...single-strap safety-flipflops and trackies, I'm fine, thanks for asking, THE BRUISE ON THE FOREHEAD SHOULD BE GONE BY wEDNESDAY NIGHT'S jIM'S tAVERN gREEK NIGHT). :D

  5. I'm no good with roses... but if your postie is turning rusty color on one side... stop feeding him snail repelant palets and flip him over...

    He'll object if I call him "stinking" and mum's already got enough garden-gnomes... :? :? :LOL:

  9. Well its time to be pruning roses now anyways, so it shouldn't have any stems with any leaves!!!

    Have a good hack at it and chop it all back to nothing, give it a handful of rose food at the bottom, and it'll be back in summer bigger and better than before.

  14. To which postie you are refering to?? one with an engine and two wheels or the other one with a hart and two legs...

    I was thinking of the leged kind... as they quite often lurke around the rose bushes and eat snail palets... and since they can be difficult to ride I thought you skided on one of those...

    Any way it realy does not metter as any posty should be fliped at least once a year to prevent them from geting rusty...

  15. Hell yes, I'm serious. Actually it should have been done in June. You ask Don Burke!

    Nope, just merely being my usual helpful self :)

    Any Nursery/Garden Shop/Kmart/BigW/Bummings. Anywhere that sells plants and garden stuff. Probably even find it in Coles - I shit you not.

    Geez, that's the thanks I get for tryin to be helpful!!! *slaps forehead*
