And pigs might fly

I guess they do...........do you like my new door stop?   I got it at this store, they were having their annual summer sale, so I popped in for a looksy!!  Funny thing was, I was in the store an hour on Saturday.  Dh wanted to have a look, so we called in on Sunday and we were in and out in five minutes.........and never bought a thing.  Moral of this story, don't take dh shopping with you!!

God bless dh and the mechanics at the factory, as they have welded together the deck for me, and it works a charm now.  Infact it's cutting a lot better.  So I have managed to get a bit of the grass cut this weekend.  I picked the rest of the peas on Sunday; so need to blanch and freeze them.

I am following this story at the moment.  I think it is interesting that France voted to ban the Burka in the first place; now Britain is talking about it.  I know that law would never pass here in Canada; however stranger things have happened!!

Also if you have another minute read this story as this involves companies from this side of the ocean as well........

Cute doorstop and looks like a nice shop. I will read the links tomorrow as I'm falling asleep and can't really concentrate much right now. Glad you got the mower fixed.

A very interesting debate (the burka) I personally don't mind what people wear, and strive to live in a tolerant society. After all, people who choose to cover their faces with beards and sunglasses are not told they can't! I love your door stop! Suie xx

Banning the Burka here in the UK wouldn't happen, they may talk about it, but that's as far they would get.

I do agree that they shouldn't wear them in schools though, uniform is uniform wherever they are.

I agree with Heather, it will never happen here. Love the piggy! xxx

Very cute doorstop. I like looking around at stuff too... usually fellows would rather not do that.
