The Understandable Misunderstanding!


The FootpathLast week I had to carry out an important task after a field had been sown with wheat. I had to mark out a footpath. Until the wheat breaks the surface we do this on the bare earth by driving across the field so the wheel-marks denote the footpath. Unfortunately to casual observers this can create an understandable misunderstanding…

A concerned friend was on the phone:
“Are you anywhere near your home?”
When I said ‘no’ he did yield:
“There’s a 4×4 driving on your field!
Now it’s stopped by the track,
I wonder if it is going back?”
I said ‘thanks, I will go and see,’
Didn’t let on that it was me!
