It at least marks where he lives,when the markers stop being run over is roughly where he lives.
Think it was a pressed metal change in NZ.
Some of the local " lads" used to collect wooden material posts on their way to a grog session at the river.
Metal/ plastic ? dampened their enthusiasm for that fuel source.
Same thing happend on the outskirts of Gawler. One night when I was a kid we heard... clank, clank, clank, bang. Gemini wrapped around a piece of railway iron. No one ever owned up to planting it.
Guide posts on the outside edge of corners always a good source of firewood 30 yrs ago @Bretti. Didn't use the plastic ones then. Just picked up the dead timber ones from the scrub.
Do feel for anyone whom gets the local hoons wrecking things.
Loving some of the inventive ways the hoons were 'repaid'.
I forgot to mention. My letterbox was covered in blood the morning after.
Now a deterrent to anyone thinking x2 of playing games with it
This new fence was put up, in the front yard, of a nearby house. Now I have to look at it every time I drive past....
Aaahhh........... aaahhhh my eyes, my eyes.......
I'm having trouble walking straight. I keep turning to the right!
Whoa !!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'll let people know not to use that company/installer
That's got to be a DIY effort, completed by somebody who should stick to their day job. Surely not even a dodgy fence contractor would deliver that kind of result.
It’s a thread winner, TeeBee!
That fence parallels my love/hate relationship with Bunnings.
Just because Bunnings et al have enabled the average punter to have a go at DIY projects, it doesn't mean you should.
Just like Kombi owners trying panelbeating.
Wouldn't be so bad if they had acquired some skills before teenage years but when 40 plus years one expects that they apply a modicum of intelligence to the process.
My Mum had the dividing fence quoted and done in colourbond by a local contractor and he followed the lay of the land, she wasn't happy and made him pull the bloody lot down and do it so that the panels were stepped and the top was level. From memory she told him if he couldn't make a fence properly she would do it herself like her father taught her and she wasn't paying him until it was done right. Good old Scottish/Irish stock my Mum never minced with idiots.
How do you know it wasn't a tradesman?
Home owner want to bee a trademan, doing there community service
Just around the corner from me is a multi million dollar home that has just had a path to the road put in. Right in the centre is a pop up sprinkler concreted in. It's going to be fun when the sprinkler needs replacing.
Some people probably think I'm overboard sometimes criticising workmanship .
Just stripped a 2 l motor today out of the bay.
Built by a local self confessed "guru".
II Ha diagnosed the sound as a loose cam wheel as same symptoms as the one in my son's that I fixed couple years back and by same builder.
This time it's the 5 bolts holding flywheel on.
Only thing limiting rotation was a split type dowel.
It finally failed .
Plus looks like one of the valves on an angle .
Will check that when I strip the heads.
Have come to expect it from this builder .
Hardly the first issue.
