Always a catch

My hysterical laughter echoed down the drive as I put my arms around Hubby today.
The gates are still ‘nearly finished’ and he was ready to put the furniture on them so that we could actually secure them with a catch and lock rather than blocks and rope.

I’m pleased to say my laughter and hug were returned as we could both see the funny side of our dilemma.
Neither of us had given it a second thought, other than to ensure that the catch we purchased was suitable to be used with a padlock.
The perfect candidate for the job.
Just one small snag.
These are designed for gates that open inwards.
Ours open outwards, and as we don’t want the catch on the outside, we are thinking of alternatives.
They still look good though!

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Upside down, maybe?

    LOL, that’s something I would do.

  3. For years, we had a door in our garage that the previous owners had purchased – only to find out that it opened the wrong way for the place it was to go. At least a lock isn’t the expensive part of the proposition, like this door was!
