Conkers...




Just collected about four dozen while walking JRT through the churchyard...

Spiders beware!

I still love the thrill of opening them, ours look to be ready next week and the kids are raring to go!

It's a thing of beauty, a freshly opened conker.

But but but!!! Did not the EU/Elfinsafety idiots/local council fanatics/bossy school marms, Hattie-like battleship matrons etc etc rule that conkers is out of bounds for ordinary tax-paying 8 year olds who wish to bash each other's brains out by making a hole through the middle of one, adding a bit of string, calling it a oncer and generally having fun like their granddads did all those years ago?

Correct me if I am mistaken...

PS I am getting heartily fed up with this idiot "not a robot
whatnot!!

It's the sliding kick to open them, isn't it Thud!

They always remind me of Cherry Blossom shoe polish, Mr H!

Sorry about the robot thing, Reevers, just ignore it - I know who you are!

As for conkers, there was always the hole in the palm of the hand from an errant screwdriver being pushed in a little bit too far...
