They used to be well signposted for a good reason,
but the council removed them,
now there’s just one, but there are four missing real pigs
I set off early this morning to feed the ‘Tamworth Four’, taking the quad and trailer to collect a few stones to finish the gable of the house. Trouble is, after feeding the ‘wee darlings’ I spotted a good stone over the wall of their enclosure and climbed over to get it. Then after struggling to roll it up the hill to the trailer I forgot to close the gate.
Of course there was a time that I’d have just lifted it into the trailer, now I have to make ‘steps’ to help me.
Once that lot was all ‘palletized’ and lifted into position with the telehandler I started tinkering about with with ‘OutBack backup’ system and got the voltmeter fitted.
A bit low at 48.1v but these cells have been resting for a couple of months and prior to fitting them yesterday I checked all the individual voltages, just like I did when I acquired them. Both times all 24 cells were within .1v of each other so I wasn’t worried.
A visit form my parents followed by a fine roast pork Sunday lunch cooked by Wifey and MiL
then a nice chilled afternoon in the caravan, just like a holiday really
After they’d left I got back on with the OutBack,
connecting up the 70mm DC cables and putting the battery on charge for a couple of hours whilst the sun was out.
It was after that, when ‘feeding time’ arrived that I realized our pigs were AWOL, as you can see I found two but a couple are still ‘at large’. I got these two back into the fank but got driven away by the midge, returning later on the quad there was still no sign of the ‘Tamworth Two’ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tamworth_Two I’m sure they’ll turn up soon, pigs do like their grub
After all, they have a fine wee hoose with a lovely view.
