Wot? No automatic Docking mechanism in a Honda?
If I were you I'd trade it in for something in a different colour so you can find it easily The Morning After :flee: :flee:

It would seem that the saying to which I allude [there are fairies at the bottom of my garden] is not so well known among some supposedly-educated Loungers as one might have presumed!

Not to worry, John, it is an easy enough mistake for a rookie.
FWIW at the bottom of my garden is Bonavista's largest continuous-flow modular composting system, constructed from fairiess bits of scrap timber.

I have to admit to never having heard of "There are fairies at the bottom of my garden".

So I don't expect you'll have heard that other classic, :sing: "There's a worm at the bottom of my garden and his name is Wiggly Woo..."?

Use you favourite search engine to find it.

I always refer to my compost heap as feeding Wiggly Woo, because it's main purpose seems to be feeding the worms

It's essential knowledge for anyone who has / had young children. My boys are well past that age but the tune still haunts my wife and I to this day. It's the earworm from hell.

Someone who is musically inclined can certainly put this to music.

This is what bad weather looks like in my part of the world at this time of the year.
IMG20220122114517_copy_1152x864.jpg
There's some cloud and a little bit of wind.

We've just moved house. We're now 15 minutes from the beach, not 2 hours.

That's my lovely wife in the picture. My other wife wasn't available.
