A wifeless rough hen (Paul)

Bev, you were right, it is an anagram!

And no Dave it isn't a rope although some of the other guesses like a wind turbine, a dam, a boat, a mini hotel and his and hers storage containers also proved rather wide of the mark!

So now for the grand unveiling - what was under the blue tarpaulin a few days ago and what's 38.4 metres long?

Well first things first:

a) never take me too seriously
b) be prepared to be wound up on a regular basis
c) thanks to Louise and Colin for helping me to errect it (boy it was heavy!) - all 38.4 metres long of it...a wifeless rough hen:

Yep, if you put the 16  2.4m long, 900mm wide chipboard shelves end to end they are exactly 38.4 metres long - a wifeless rough hen - warehouse shelfing - exciting or what??!!

Paul, I have to say the over-whelming feeling is one of being under-whelmed - however, as a man who likes to be organized and tidy, I have to say, respect to anyone who can buy that much shelving with intent to fillit, and I look forward to the photos.

How very very disappointing.

The next time we meet I will inflict a great deal of pain upon you!
