It had become clear that my mom's pony's stable needed a bit of work. It is around 12 years old (built by my brother who is a carpenter) and Humphrey the pony (see above) has taken to scratching his behind on one of the door posts.
So, on Saturday morning, Mrs RC and myself set off with an assortment of tools - hammer, nails, 5 foot iron bar, etc.
After a quick look we saw that darling Humphrey had managed to move the door post (along with the attached wall) around a foot out of place!
I gave it a shove - nothing. This was heavy stuff!
Then Mrs RC grabbed the 5 foot bar, hooked it under the door post and pushed.
Yes, you guessed it, in about 3 seconds it was back in place and we were soon finishing off our repairs. If you hadn't realised before, Mrs RC is not someone to argue with, especially when armed with a 5 foot steel bar! :-)
But, despite my inability to shift the door post, there was evidence that my working out is paying dividends. I was trying to remove an old nail from the stable wall and ripped the head off the claw hammer instead!
