We haven't got enough for a regular grades and Vet grades. In fact in our D grade the ages vary from 14 to mid fifties.

Guess it's one of the difference b/n a city and a town. :D

Wonder if you can see my trench from space?

Heres a satilite photo before the trench digging commenced.

Crank, could you please hack into the US military and get one of the spy satilites to take a photo please.

Can you just take a photo yourself when you've completed?

I think many of us really would like to see it, given the extensive interest and following on your trench threads. :shock:

About 1.5 metres to go. Should have more time to work on it on Sunday.

We could start talking about trench coats instead.

Hmm, dunno about this trench - it's turning into a saga to rival the digging of the Panama Canal. :wink:

Hurry up and finish, will you? I'm running out of popcorn. :P

The rest of the forum awaits your progress report with bated breath. :wink: :D

Will the drizzly weather take its toll and force our hero to abandon his labours?

Will the curvaceous femme fatale wearing nothing but a trenchcoat succeed in distracting him from his quest?

Will he triumph in adversity and bring the excavation to a successful conclusion?

Stay tuned for the next thrilling instalment in "A Man and His Trench" :lol:

Wow, that's a narrow trench! How did you get yourself in there?

Congratulations is in order in any case. :D

Photo is deceptive, especially with the long grass covering the edges. Apart from one small section where I experimented, its the width of a garden spade.

PS Weiyun, I'd thought you would of noticed that I still have my bike shorts on.
