Figs, pizza and scrabble

This is the neighbour gnomes' fig tree. Magnificent and full of the biggest and juiciest figs.Ahem...this was the tree before I climbed up and broke off a limb. Sorry, very sorry. The limb is not totally broken off, but it is still bad. One good thing, though, it will be easier to pick the figs that are on that branch when they are ripe. (If I am allowed back, that is.)

After confession time - the neighbour gnomes didn't seem too worried about the damage - we indulged in two big and delicious home-made pizzas. These are the remains of one of them. After all the food, we only had the energy for a game of scrabble. At least two of us, the other two had a game of Eight-Ball.

A good time was had by everyone. Thank you for a very enjoyable evening, neighbour gnomes! :)

Lets just say, the tree maybe needed a little pruning :-) WE always enjoy your company and so, you can come again, especially since I need some one to pick the figs for me. This time next year it will be ME climbing the tree for a fig search.

Guess what !! Popeye has just come in and told me that he opened the gate to allow the cows to drink from the dams. They have already devoured the figs on the broken branch. GRRRHh

GRRRRRRRR... indeed! There were tons of big figs on the lower branches, I expect they'll be gone too. :( No dinner for Popeye tonight!
