We have alot of visitors to our village from the USA. Probably because it's very old and quaint - lots of chocolate box thatched cottages, really old pub and post office - I'm sure you get the picture.

This afternoon as the weather was so nice I was in the garden to the side of my house with a washing up bowl and a pair of scisors cutting grass for the piggies - I'm sure you've all been there rolleyes Anyway this lovely couple walked past and stopped to chat. We had a lovely conversation about the weather, their holiday in the UK, all sorts of interesting things.
Just as they were about to continue on their way the husband asked quite sincerely if lots of people in the UK cut their grass like I did. In the states they apparently have lawn mowers.................................:red:))

It is funny, but not all Americans are stupid like that :))

I cut grass with scissors all the time for my piggies. I must say though, people look at me like I'm crazy when I do that :))

I'm sorry about my outburst earlier. But I think I do have a point... :(|)

You've given us all such a laugh .... but we've all done the bowl and scissors bit.

I once watched a woman over on the fields doing just that, and I couldn't resist it, so went up to her and said "I know - piggies" ...... I had a very strange look back, then she said "I'm picking grass for my tortoises". Well, how was I to know!
