A lovely summers day, and a splintery bench!
Chris: Poor old thing, it's falling to bits..

Ce banc doit être un peu dangereux.
Chris: Quite Martine
I know you don't want to do it, Chris, so you don't have to!!!!
Chris: Well since you ask Ginnie, there are other things I could be doing..

Watch out for that nail... and did you bring your brolly....
Those penguins are a laugh smile
Chris: I could hammer the nail in with my brolly Astrid

Oh, my Benchie is still alive , I am sure she will be recovering in the summer sun. I see you are a customer of Waitrose.
Chris: I am a fan of Waitrose Philine, their standards are high. Contrasting nicely with my own..

Is that a smile or a grimace, Chris?
Chris: Both Lisl

FON"T SIT ON IT! IT WILL COLLAPSE! Watering it will not help now; it's not going to grow any more. I do like the waving somethingorothers.
Chris: Penguins obviously..

The bench stands defiant.
Chris: That's all that ruddy well does..
Ha ha ha ha ha yes, I can see that some urgent restoration work has already begun Tiff. But enough about you, what about the blinking bench?
Chris: Oh it's had it Chad..

Polishing Benchy...good Lad!
Chris: Mumble..mumble..mumble..
Time you got yourself a new bench, I think, Chris
Chris: Or perhaps a new life..
Could this be a bench mark moment
Chris: Very much so Martin

Have you got a bad case of piles ?
Chris: Not at all, more a bad case of woodwork..
Benchie may not be for bums anymore but I am sure there are many serviceable years left in him. For now, a watering can, a screen; even heavier things he might hold. Down the road lighter things of course. Yes, let him enjoy his later years in dignified grace.
Chris: Hopefully this will be the case..

It's good to see you, old friend smile
(I'm talking to the bench, of course, Chris, which I hope has many happy years ahead of it. I would not have added the 'o' word to your name!)
Chris: I should hope not Penny, for I am Y O U N G and F I T

As I read Winchester, in Hampshire, has been named the best city to live in thanks to its outdoor spaces, community spirit, quality of living and a Waitrose store.
Chris: Indeed so Philine,I often go there to enjoy its delights.

Winchester is also just up the road from lovely Scumsville, heavenly paradise-playground of Mr A Rolfe..
I can't believe it's still standing, the bench, not you smile
The joy of a loyal bench. matched only by the company of penguins...
