NOT GET­TING INTO THE SWING OF IT

NZ Lifestyle Block - - Your Letters - Clare Strange, by email

About 12 years ago, when we bought a bach on 1.5ha of land, we had rose­c­oloured glasses and bought a scythe. It wasn’t even easy to find one. Af­ter try­ing it a few times we bought a weedwacker. It is beau­ti­ful watch­ing the pros but for us mor­tals, us­ing a scythe re­minds me of an old sail­ing apho­rism ‘noth­ing goes to wind­ward like a 747’. Last year we sold the scythe on Trade Me for very lit­tle but were glad to find a good home for it.

I loved the cat col­lar (www.birdbe­safe.com, NZ Lifestyle Block July 2015). I sent it on to a few friends and I don’t even like cats. What a sim­ple and el­e­gant so­lu­tion to bird killing.
