Little Digger

Here's Little Digger driven today by Adrian - driver extraordinaire and all round good guy.

Little Digger was hero of the hour yesterday in a slithery incident involving a slope, a tractor and a trailer - nothing to do with us I'm glad to say as the rescue mission took over 3 hours in pitch black and pouring rain. Little Digger dug out a bank and helped with his long and flexible arm to hold the trailer back and prevent further slipping and expensive damage. Three cheers for it - or is it him?

Today its back to work as usual - and spreading out the heap of Criggion scalpings which have lain in my path for nearly a fortnight now, making each hen keeping expedition a task of Himalayan proportions.

I'm beginning to wonder if I might have a story along the lines of Thomas the Tank Engine in the making here? A series? Film rights?

Today Trelystan, tomorrow the world.

I know two little boys who would love a book about a Little Digger that saves the day!

Not such a little Digger either. But yes write on, scribble away. Theo will join Pondie's grandsons. Once upon a time, in a far off kingdom that lay in the hills, lived a little, yellow digger. He was the only digger in the kingdom and he had rescued so many people from disaster that the Prince and Princess who ruled the kingdom had given him a great many medals. On his long yellow digging arm he had one medal for kindness, one medal for helpfulness and another, gold, medal for punctuality - for the little digger always arrived on time when someone became stuck fast in a ditch.

One day.......
