From my Painstaking, Particular Perspective, I Present the Primary Piece of a Prospective Paranormal Parade of Panels. Please Peruse my Placement of this Ponderous Post Hole Digger! :-)

Pleasant Days,

Precise work,

Preview of the future panel



Manual Post Hole Diggers:

I'm so glad we had only the digger at left and not the two-bladed style on the right! I'm too Puny or Pusillanimous
(lacking courage or resolution) for that one! :-)

By the way! I just remembered the word my high school girlfriend was to remember for me! (Did you remember that I was in charge of loquacious?) Her word was Parsimonious (stingy)! Not fitting for either of us...

Not wanting to start a Post-Hole Digging Pandemic,

Please Ponder before Planting!

Project completion updates will be Posted at a later date.

Practically Posthumously
(but not "shady")

Great post Shady!! What a lot of work and your words are so much fun. Looks great so far! I think I forgot to comment on your last post, your granddaughter is adorable! :)

Kathleen said...

What a great project you have going there Shady! Looks like hard work to me but it's going to be worth it when you're done.
Your granddaughter is adorable!

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers
The earliest version of this tongue twister was published in Peter Piper's Practical Principles of Plain and Perfect Pronunciation by John Harris (1756-1846) in London in 1813, which includes one name tongue twister for each letter of the alphabet in the same style. However, the rhyme was apparently known at least a generation earlier.

Seems they have always had an alphabet game.

What a neat ( as in 'tidy') garden. Want to see it in a few weeks' time, all furnished and full.

Pretty, it will be. I usually like to see somebody else on the working end of the post-hole digger while I sloth in the warm.

Now that's a mouthful of P's. Great post for the posthole digger.

Roger Owen Green said...

In the plethora of Ps today, yours may be the 1st one to use the term paranormal.

WV: jaunique - yes, most unusual.

In my opinion, you win the prize for the most unique P selection! I've used a manual post hole digger and it causes much Perspiration, and does indeed require a lot of Patience. :)

Kate said...

LMAO, Shady - You've outdone yourself with the P's! Thanks for the giggle.

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Rebecca, Thanks!! :-)

Thanks to you, too, Kathleen. I look forward to getting back to work this next week! :-) We just had our Garden Ladies' Party tonight. A post is forthcoming!

Hi Joco, I've been MIA lately... will surface again soon.

Tumblewords - I'm looking for help! ;-)

Photowannabe - thanks!

Hi Roger, so... ha. Thanks for your visit.

Hi LisaF, Thanks for visiting. I'm looking for help this week on digging a couple more holes! :-)

Hi Kate! I'm glad I gave you the giggles... it was what I'd hoped. :-)

Post hole digging is a BIG job! By the way, where in west and central MI will you be? If you have any time, I'd love to meet you in Ann Arbor--I can also drive a bit to meet you, if you have time. :)

Anonymous said...

Using those things is quite the chore. I've never seen the one on the left. The one on the right is good for releasing frustrations :)

Shady Gardener said...

Monica, Wouldn't that be FUN??! :-) Who knows if I'll make it up at the end of May, after all. I've been asked to be on this year's Annual Garden Tour! (June 13) But when I DO get to drive north, I'll let you know!!

Chad & Brandi, We have two sizes of the one on the left. I started my holes with the 4" one and used the larger one to finish the job. Guess What! Mr. Shady dug two more holes today and put in two more posts!! Yea!!

This week - I'm going to see about getting at least one panel up! :-)
