    No.
    Not sure what it is, I guess it is a puffball that is gone over?

    We have a really old smallish pear tree against the front of the house. It had a fair crop of pears on it. Often seen more . BUT the wasps destroyed them.
    You must have an odd 10 x 6 load to spare..

    A timber handled version , mind. Not one with Euro hooks

    You'd lose the half of them. I have a couple of spud forks I could hire out, we used to use them for picking stones, long since redundant.

    You're very hard on yourself and agreid. I don't need to be there, I'll write out the instructions for use.

    Could you make pear cider ?

    I seem to have mislaid my reading glasses. You wear glasses anyway. We would need you to decipher it

    They would be just perfect , for the job. They may commute together . Take a Ryan air flight , if They can find a pilot to fly it.

    I have a just finished a barrel of oil. You would hardly notice the taste of it . Might give it a rub of a bit of blue paper.

    Pear cider, now the last time I had a feed of that I was confined to a 50 meter radius of the white throne the day afterwards.
    If an elephant had constipation, a couple of pints of pear cider would sort all problems out. Not a bad taste though...
