The Long and the Short of Prongs.
Wills thinks that the prongs on our 'daily usage' forks (above) are too long. I have no idea how he came across this interesting observation, but he was most adamant.
I suggested that there was not (as yet) a European standard length for fork prongs, and maybe he could do some research into the subject. Maybe if he came to some firm conclusions he could then submit his findings to the 'European Fork Prong Length Politburo', and they would look into the matter.
In the meanwhile I did offer to cut down a fork for him, but he's still undecided as to the perfect length. Maybe I should make several all of differing lengths, and he could make his own choice.
Personally I've always rather liked 3 pronged forks; but that's a whole other can of worms.
The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone (except the obdurate and dictatorial) is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 50 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live between an ancient cottage in a tiny village in perfectly tranquil French countryside, and a bijou townhouse in Brighton UK. In France we have plenty of fruit trees, all situated amongst a view that takes the breath away, in the UK we have a handkerchief sized patio. We also have a Border Collie called Billy. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
