Afternoon dog walk


On a damp hillside

I sit while the dog works hard

top dog, under dog.

Interesting fact… the terms top dog and under dog are derived from (woodland) saw pits where the worker at the top end of a double ended saw was called the top dog and the worker in the saw pit underneath with all the sawdust dropping down was called an under dog.

Bad timing

allotment must wait

  • I’ve been looking forward to finishing work all day today to be able to pop up to the allotment before cooking an evening meal. A badly timed shower has goofed up all my timings and my excitement. Tomorrow it will have to be.
