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.

You didn't click on the picture to get the big one, there you can see the top of my bike shorts under the grubby work shorts.
