A sitcom writer could not come up with a more implausible story.
On Wednesday morning, David had this gorgeous court - compacted and all.
To make sure it would fit nicely into the surrounding lawn, he ordered a truckload of soil, and grass sods. The pétanque court would look like it had been there forever.
"Drop the dirt around the new sand area" was the message. Loud & clear.
The truck driver was either deaf, blind, or both - but this was the result this afternoon:
Smack on top of... the pétanque court. It was so unbelievable, they all cracked up.
Many hours later, David, Bryan, Jason & Co were still shuffling dirt.
Actually - I felt so bad about the whole story - I went to help them.
More to come!
