25 years just washed away in an instant......................

I`ve had my two stone pigs for 25 years. They have moved with me to each new house we bought in the UK and finally crossed the channel with us 5 years ago. It has taken 25 years for the stone to weather and age to a wonderful mottled grey and I am very proud of them. Or perhaps that should be  I "was" proud of them!

We have had someone doing a little building work here and he rushed into the kitchen to say he was finished and was overjoyed to tell me had had managed to clean up one of my pigs like new with his pressure wash hose. He asked if I would like to just nip outside to see the difference between the dirty pig and the clean one.............................................



I wonder if I would be arrested for jet washing someone to within an inch of their life? Tempting...................soooooooooooooooo tempting!!!!!

    Someone who will remain nameless did that to my seated stone deer in the garden....lots of smeared yoghurt and it is still not the same! It takes years to create that look....
