Nelson is watching what is going on at the Abbey - Read his report of what been going on. A birds eye report
Nelson was watching all the work going on around him this past few days. Luckily by turning his head 360 degrees nothing passes him by without him seeing it. Even Alan having a afternoon nap day does not get by him.
Here is his report on what has been going on -
I wasn't impressed by some of the footwear being worn today by some members of the team.. Peter looked more interested in the cat walk, than painting the yellow lines. The shoes were well dodgy. What do you think (see below) ?
More areas of the ground were converted to Amber - Alan painted some additional areas in the main stand on the top of the stair wells. Alan was having an afternoon nap today in the main stand. (Nothing gets by Nelson)
Gary completed the the pointing on the South Stand that needed doing. The pointing has cracked and needs to be scrapped out and replaced. With the heat the cement dries out quite quickly and needs using fast. Thankfully Gary is quite fit for his age and got all the work done without too much trouble.
Ian was cutting the grass and marking out the pitch. Not sure who he thinks he is in the sun glasses. I think he is having a mid life crisis and thinks he is twenty again. We all think the look would be okay in Only Fools and Horses with him at the wheel of a traders reliant robin. Perhaps they are reason for his problem with hosepipes
Mick mended steps and hung things on the walls. He wasn't coming anymore this week. I am reliably informed he is back tomorrow. Think he misses me.
Les was on the bridge again today. He has spent almost all the summer doing them. Looking forward to seeing him being allowed back in the ground shortly. He has served his apprenticeship and should be allowed to do more work inside the ground Local residents have offered him food and drinks he been out there so long, they think he is homeless.
The windows in the Main Stand have been washed. They sparkle now and perhaps that is why Ian is wearing sunglasses. He said it was to stop the flying ants and fly's.
Anyway the clean glass means I can see my good looks better in the reflection.
I will report again shortly -
