The alien monolith won't prove harrowing for the tractor driver, he's so laid back he cannot see it over the sill of his cab window. Eyesight not really required when you possess magical powers that create furrows without tines and ahead of the implement: "Agriculturalus Viento!"

 

Dreadful thing phototography.

 

It's not a harrow but a chisel plough, a little over the top for such nice fine soil...

 

But if it is all a cover up...

 

And it's not actually in the ground...

Artistic licence for the sake of enabling the pun. Which you appear to be sole person to have spotted. You may feel smug.

This is why I don't do scenery. There's just way too much to get wrong.

Some may have spotted it and kept quiet, not wanting to be associated with such humour.

In order to escape this jollity, I decided to carry on building some garden sheds after lunch for the cottage gardens.

 

Whilst building I turned to pick up the knife and knocked, or if you prefer - nudged,  not one, but both, onto the floor.....?

 

Bending to pick them up I managed to hit the edge of the protruding scale ruler which then pivoted up and hit me on the ear.

 

This never happened before so I can only conclude that this 'nudging' business might to contagious and have lasting unknown effects on the idividual...…!!!!

 

PS

That actually happened and made me laugh....

They're not unknown any more. You've let the nudge out of the bag.

 

Garden shed nudging. That's a new one on me, but it could indicate a sheltered upbringing. Nudging was relatively unknown during my childhood. Although, I suppose, it could just have been that it wasn't publicised very much.

It has always been there but kept very much "in the closet".

 

I have been involved in nudging incidents sine the late 1970s but it may have gone on even earlier.

 

Perhaps there are examples that crop up in old model railway magazines as evidence. No "photoshopping" back then to hide it.

Nudging in the closet? Not sure that's suitable talk for this forum. But, then again . . . . . . . . . .

I built this model of Chilcompton tunnel in N for a customer. I was rather pleased with this shot until I spotted ......

Took me a long time to spot that. Could be a new Cornish mine name, 'Wheal Zoff!' Lovely modelling nevertheless .

Is canopy nudging related to kinematic envelope? ISTR the Divisional Civil Engineer in the '80s having a policy of 'de-titting' canopies, which might have avoided nudges. Just a thought.

There could well be a relationship, Ian. Especially if tilt and sway are considered proportional to the effects of a mobile nudge. Anything could happen!

 Tilt and sway? Are you saying the whole APT project was just some high-speed nudgery?

I thought the kinematic envelope was what the film director's money was kept in....

Chap I know called Bob, who shall remain nameless, nudged the canopy over the Scarborough bays at York many years ago and broke a bit off. It was with a 45ton steam crane and really the blame should be with whoever left the parcel van on the platform and it was either the station or the Roller' in the carpark on the other side of the fence.

 

(The canopy was repaired many years later)

Nudging on a grand scale. 12" to the foot, no less.

 

And with broken bits, too! That's bits with a 'b' Andy!

Loose nudgers are the worst kind. There's no controlling them. They'll have a go at anything, given half a chance.
