So the boys had a barnie today while we were at work. It seems as though Conner was the one to come out second best. This is a first. Guthrie has always been bottom dog in this family but this evening Conner has been even been a shakie dog. We have had to cut off a fair bit of one side of his beard. There are quite a few punctures in his face and a lot of red and bruised skin. He was very well behaved while we were tending to him with salt water and cotton wool. We will have to keep a bit if an eye on him for the next few days and he doesn't improve or he starts looking worse, it will be off to the vet for poor Conner.

Great idea

So, I had this really great idea.  Neil bought a lazer level and I thought I could use it to trim the hedge, as I have never been that happy with my manual efforts at trimming it.  I tried the other day with string, but as the hedge is quite long, it kept sagging.

Here is a photo of the very woodie looking hedge.  

I set up the level today.  I was about to start, and the skies opened.  It is only meant to be 11°C today. Thankfully it was only a short shower, so I headed out with the tripod and lazer.  

Bugger..... You can't see the line outside.  I'm unsure if it is too bright, or if the red line is being absorbed into the green plant (I might be over thinking that last one)

This might have to be an evening job
