Today I felt my age. My right knee has passed its use by date (I'm not complaining because I brought it on myself: I used to be a fencer and fencing coach). It doesn't give me a lot of pain but it does make lifting heavy concrete or wheeling wheelbarrows down slopes rather difficult and very tiring. Fortunately David did most of the really heavy work and his thirteen year old grandson went up and down the slope with the wheelbarrow like a gazelle. Not that, I have to admit, I've ever seen a gazelle pushing a wheelbarrow. Today we managed two panels of concrete. The cement mixer is effective but doesn't have a very big capacity.
Yes, something or things did crawl across the first panel!
