    Default Pesky flags

    We have been in current house 30 years or so. The front approach is three sets of steps, each step is three flags wide, 2ft by 2ft flags.
    Over the years the flags bedding has crumbled and I now need to re-lay some of them.
    When I was young I used to throw flags round like lozengers, even 3ft by 2ft. But now at 66 the 2x2 feel very heavy.
    Still I re-layed the first flag using some quick set cement.
    Very impressive that cement, sets in around 10 mins. Could be useful for some cement over shoes for some one I know!
    So I am spending my time flagging and not gardening which is very annoying.
    Hire a builder you say.
    Being a scrooge not likely.

    That'll be because you're closer to the Secret Swiss Black Hole than Rary - you'll be feeling the effects on the flags more.

    Are you sure you're not rary?
    Maybe you should get together and carry a flag between you!

    Distinctly deja vu....

    Mind you, that's how I feel most of the time, so now you're just like ordinary folk...

    I'm sure you'll see the similarity.

    You were probably getting very confused and worried about us sending you and Rary to Switzerland.
