Before and after

 

Now, all that remains is to get the wall rebuilt and a new tree planted - further away from the wall!

 

And a very Happy New Year to all!  Although with the Brexit nonsense still rumbling along, I suspect that's a vain hope for us in the UK!

It's coming along!

Happy New Year to you, Tom! Yes - you suffer through the Brexit debacle, we'll suffer through the trump debacle... and in a few years' time we can vote 'em all out and set the world right! smile
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Elizabeth. Our problem is that you can get rid of Trump in 2020, whereas our troubles only begin this March!
I have enjoyed this series, Tom.

2019 is likely to be at least as interesting as 2018... sad
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ray - I'm not sure that "interesting" will be quite the right word!

Yes happy new year Tom

Brexit - groan...
Tom Wilson: Groan, groan...
Happy new year Tom

I see Mrs May has declared that voting for the deal will enable the country to turn a corner. Didn't she mean go round the bend?
Tom Wilson: Mrs. May went round the bend years ago! She's totally gaga! Do you think that, after Thatcher sold off British industry and started the privatisation nonsense, and after May ruins the country by dragging us out of Europe, the Tory party will resist the notion of having another woman leader? Terribly non-PC, I know, but we've only had two to base the conclusion on!

I hate seeing older trees chopped down, even though sometimes it’s necessary. I’m not a tree hugging fanatic but it is for aesthetics. The woods belonging to the Miserden estate are steadily being devoid of mature trees as they cut them down for business. They replant young trees in their place but it has lost something.
Tom Wilson: Yes, it is sad to see them go, but at least on a managed estate future generations will see what you saw.
good to see the progress, Tom - there is still work to be done.
Tom Wilson: Oh yes - and more money to be spent :-(
They were certainly fine trees, it must seem strange without them. Have a happy 2019, all we really need is our politicians to stop playing politics and use their common sense collectively for the benefit of us all, some chance!!
Tom Wilson: No hope at all, I suspect Brian - if I was 30 years younger I'd be emigrating!
I know how good it feels to have such a job finished. Happy New Year!
Tom Wilson: I'll only really be happy when the wall is rebuilt!
