Trip to Soho

Our first morning in Birmingham City Centre (in fact, only Saturday) I was out walking the dogs when I spotted this little lot heading in my direction, now you can take the girl out of the country, but you can't take the country out of....... and good wood is good wood. I asked if they were using it and they said, "no". So I legged it back to MR ready to receive this great bounty. The only trouble is, they whimped out of breasting up but, with many apologies, told me where to find more, "hang a right at the next crossroads".
So early Sunday morning we set off in hot pursuit, hung a right at the crossroads, winded here

and winded there. Past the prison and the Asylum, under asylum bridge

and, at last, our treasure.


  1. Is that a Stihl I see before me? Excellent choice of chainsaw!

  2. No, it's a Husqvarna 345 trio - it seems to do the job, but the splitting afterwards plays a bugger with my tennis elbow - keeps us fit as well as warm.
