'Gosh its getting dark in here early tonight' said New shoot as she ventured into the forum on the first night after the clocks changed.  'Best get some lights on being its halloween soon and all ....'

But oddly the light switches seem to be not working and there was no-one around either.  Then New shoot heard a distant clanking and clanging.  Summoning her courage and donning a tin foil hat just in case, she got the torch out of her emergency kit (issued to mods in case of zombie apocalypse, invasion of body snatchers or the meter having run out) and went to see what it was ....

When snowdrops looked down in the torch light (thanks Newshoot) she could see it was indeed those sparkly purple wellies causing her feet to be held in a vice like grip by the debris netting she had been trying to fold. She exclaimed for all to hear I wish Id never heard of Growsterinc, I said I didnt think they were big enough but the nice gentleman said they were can anyone help me pull them off & Ill send them back.
Just then there was a strange light emitting from.....

...an ageing orangutan, who had tried twice to post an update to the story but was too slow - his frustration caused self-combustion, the cause of the sudden emission of light.

Luckily, being in the dark dungeon  ::)  :tongue2: the light came in very handy for...
Sow your seeds, plant your plants, and plonk your potatoes in the soil.

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older.

...some sort of deranged apparition, muttering "I wish Id never heard of Growsterinc, I said I didnt think they were big enough but the nice gentleman said they were can anyone help me pull them off" and really wondering what on earth that meant, but not reading between the lines, deciding that all was normal (except for the bit about not being big enough), and so the muttering continued, with occasional references to...

...someone reports us to the EU for multiple use of illegal pesticides and we're kept in the dungeon forever.  :ohmy:
