Can you not just stick them in a plastic bag for a couple of days?Oh dear there is going to be tears here later on this afternoon. Herself told me on Friday that two of the older hens have stopped laying. I've just finished sharpening the axe and about to have a brew, will get to the hens after my brew.
Herself will insist on giving the hens daft names and getting all attached to them.
Chicken soup for lunch tomorrow.
The clue is in the thread titleWas it you?
I never knew Barnsley was in Holland and exotic*.My buddy Douwe comes from a small coastal town in South Holland, their accent and dialect of Dutch is reckoned to be one of the oldest in existence.
He lives in Leiden now, one day someone else from his home town came in to his local and they started talking in their own dialect.
After a few minutes they realised someone was watching them open mouthed. He asked if he could help the guy who was a studenty type in his 20s, "no I just realised you don't come from here", the visitor replied no we come from somewhere really exotic, about 10km from here.
They weren't going to lay again anyway, so it's into the soup pot they go. Herself told me later that they stopped laying a couple of weeks back but she didn't want to tell me because she knew what it meant for the two chooks.That's not going to get them laying again.
Anyone else remember the scene from "Breaker Morant" where Morant tells the interpreter to find out the identity of the Boer prisoner.Not a whisky cave that you'll admit to in front of the missus, in any case...
Ragnarok may not be the reason to clean your tools, but I find it quite peaceful doing a repetitive task like that. In any case, guns are a bit loud. It's way more fun to sneak around with a carefully sharpened implement being the thing that goes bump in the night.
RE Afrikaans, quite correct. In fact, while Dutch has evolved, Afrikaans is closer to Flemish these days. Cloggie colleagues sometimes leave me behind when they select rapid fire, but sitting getting pissed in their RIBs on Lake Tanganyika with the Belgian embassy security blokes, there was little discernible difference in what we were saying apart from accents.
