Three Coins in a Fountain

Woken to rain this morning, and after I had spent a whole night watering the grass (with a sprinkler!) Perhaps I should have watched the weather forecast.

I thought I'd attach a picture of the new fountain now I've got the splashy bit working at the top and some plants in so it looks something like now. Once I get some red geraniums planted round the little border, it'll look the part.

I was walking through a shopping centre in Hull the other day and spotted a machine which said it would give you the correct answer to any question.
It's worth 50p, I thought so I gave it a go. I asked the machine "Where is my father?"
The machine replied, "Your father is fishing in South Wales."
Well, I thought, that's daft for a start because I just left my dad and he was at home just round the corner. I thought I'd try another tack. "Where is my mother's husband?"
Back came the reply, "Your mother's husband is in Hull but your father is still fishing in South Wales."


Chat soon



  1. You put a smile on my face with your joke... It is a joke right lol.

    I love your fountain, a work of art!

  2. Hi Jarmara
    Thanks for the comment it's been a while waiting for water to make it spring into life. The story, erm I mean joke - yes it's just a joke. Hope you enjoyed the weekend in Whitby? An acquaintance of mine was there and I think he was mildly shocked/amused at the dress code in the town.
