How's your day?

My chicken coop will be a permanent feature that fits in with the rest of the garden. It will be incorporated within a wired pen aprox 12 x 6 feet. The mobile coops are the best for the hens well being, having fresh grass to peck on and no floor cleaning required, but my garden is not suited to one. 

Right, coffee break over, back to work.

Just curious, why?

If you really have to do this then there is little point in doing ground preparation or any paving.

I was not clear.. sorry . I move my coop once a week.

I don't have to do so I know …………..but I like it.

I like the idea of netting the lot but I live right in the countryside where they run free the biggest threat is not cars on the quiet road but Mr. Fox  and these days anyone who feels hungry and cannot get food in supermarkets.

If I get time I will post a picture.

Not a great day, as my Dad (Clive Johnson) passed away at 1030 this morning. Dad would have been known to some of the members on her and also some of the casual visitors as he worked for NCT from 1963 through to December 1976, when he left to take up a full-time position with the TGWU in Burton-on-Trent. He started as a conductor on the trolleybuses  at Bulweel depot and transferred to Bilborough depot once he passed his PSV test in 1966. Following our move to Clifton in September 1968, Dad continued at Bilborough depot, until the spring of 1969 when he was able to transfer to the spare rota at Parliament Street depot. In 1972 he becamce an OMO driver on the "Gordon Road" rota, which also included the West Bridgford services. Upon the re-opening of Trent Bridge depot in 1973, Dad moved to Trent Bridge as all the Bridgford services were opertaed from the re-opened depot. In 1974, Dad was elected Branch Secretary of the TGWU to work alongside the Branch Office, Harry Ball, at Parliament Street depot.

 

Dad was always active in the Union movement, not as some tub thumping left wing loony, as they were often labelled in the press and media of the time, but to foster his belief that the working man needed a voice, to ensure that safe and secure working practices were in place, and that at no prejudice could be brought to bear in any disciplinary proceedings taken against his colleagues.

 

Dad, I will miss you , but thank you for making me the man I am today.

I worked at Bilborough depot until 1967, so must have crossed paths with your dad DB.

Please accept my sincere condolences at your sad loss. I'll be thinking of you. Beekay.

It is never easy to say au revoir to a much loved father but you have had the benefit of a good relationship with yours, DB. If we have been blessed with good parents, we tend to think that everyone has the same relationship with their mum and dad that we have with ours. Sadly, that isn't the case.  I have often been shocked and appalled at the comments of colleagues relating to their parents but it made me realise how fortunate I am not to have suffered the same kind of antipathy.

 

The Buddhists believe that we choose our parents. If that is true, then you chose well DB. 

 

Our parents never really leave us. They are part of our personalities and habits. I've lost count of the times I've said something and then realised I sounded just like my mother...or my father!

 

It will get easier. Draw on your memories and concentrate on all the happiness your father has left behind.

I still find myself thinking like that from time to time.
