Introduction

Postby Pa Snip » Tue Mar 08, 2016 2:44 pm

I have mentioned a number of times that eventually my daughter will be taking over my plot and the reason why.

To that end I have held her arm up her back and sort of persuaded her to register as a member of the forum.

So Ladies & Gentlemen, may I introduce you to

Poddington Pea

I am hoping that she will have as much fun, and learn as much here, as I do

So folks, you thought having me around was bad enough ( I am rolling on floor laughing now) but for now you have a double act to contend with :lol:

The danger when people start to believe their own publicity is that they often fall off their own ego.

At least travelling under the guise of the Pa Snip Enterprise gives me an excuse for appearing to be on another planet

You can sort out your profile.

Need to decide what avatar (profile ) picture you want to use.
That picture and any you post have to be certain sizes otherwise they wont upload

Welcome, I hope you enjoy the chats and information as much as we do.

Your plot looks in very good condition, so you are off to a great start and I'm sure your dad is passing on all his extensive gardening knowledge too. You've even got a manure mountain :D

Goodness another PP!

Welcome to the forum! It can be funny, informative & anything you post is fine. Maybe it's been asked before but you'll get an appropriate link to the answer. Ignore my posts - I'm really not going to marry your father for his compost! Wee fling in an Ivana Trump kinda way - but no money will exchange hands, but gardening gloves may be necessary! :D In other words I want his manure!

You enjoy it Paddington Pea - that manure is really your inheritance! Pa has done you well!

:D Westi

I did wonder about the PP thing as well.

Just a pointer though Its 'Poddington Pea' not Paddington, he was a bear and its me that likes marmalade not me daughter. I can foresee an increase in the number of peas to be grown on plot

Westi, If manure is Poddington's inheritance do you think she would have to apply for probate. In which case maybe it would be simpler to leave it in trust for you.

Poddington peas was one of my favourite tv shows :D Naturally now its Mr Blooms Nursery. lol

Anyway, Welcome to the forum Poddinton Pea (now, do we shorten that to pod, or pea?...)

Anyway, So inspired by the memories of poddington peas, I just had to draw (well, photoshop) you a pea picture (avatar size) I'm sure you dont need it, but hay, thats the sort of thing I do for fun :) (I'm a strange one like that)

Yes, welcome.
You certainly sound like a chip off the old block; or should I say a pea from the same pod.
