I watched the first episode of endeavour and was hooked, Then, the following Friday, I watched it again. DSTV had promised episode two but reran episode one. DSTV does that all the time. Why? Because they are wankers. Then, two Fridays ago, DSTV aired episode two and I was once more content. Last Friday, I was treated to episode three and I was ecstatic.
Marcia knows that this is the only programme I really, really enjoy watching, such is the drivel those bishop bashers at DSTV screen, so I was ever so pleased when she called me in from the garden to tell me that my programme had started.
I was confused. For a start, the music in Endeavour is by Barrington Pheloung and is haunting. What I was hearing now was discordant crap. Then instead of Shaun Evans' face, I saw Benedict Cumberbatch's. I pressed the information button on the remote. Sherlock. Those effing knob polishers. After giving us month's of adverts, teasers and previews for Endeavour, they give us three episodes and then, without so much as a by your leave, drop it in favour of yet more inane fodder for the mentally deficient. I can put up with all sorts of shit living here but being dependant on South Africans for my TV programmes really irritates me.
So, bitterly disappointed, I went back to my garden, now very dark, and carried on watering the beds.
I cannot end my post on such a sour note so instead I will share with you a few photos of how I sink wells here.
|First, you need to find water so make yourself a set of diviners|
|Then go for a walk and see where you get the strongest 'hit'|
|Get yourself a few of these delivered|
|Roll one of them over the spot, get inside it and start digging|
|As you dig, the weight of the concrete drainage pipe will drive it down.|
I should have said, 'As one digs...' but didn't bother as smart people do not dig their own wells.
|When the first sinks to ground level, roll another one on top|
|The use of child labour is recommended. They fit in the hole easier.|
|Before finishing, I scoop up the rotten remains of an old palm tree. Ideal for use in a potting soil mix. |
Charlie and Eddie think it is all a wonderful game and can't keep their noses out!
