Gangster, cheers, the tears have now stopped. As I get older, as a semi retired sex God, my mind tends to rest on the cerebral side of the universe.
Anyway, it's all displacement activity, as I await the the important activities starting soon in Japan.

The same guy that wanted some new protective clothing. For some reason he was at odds with the boss and the awkward boss would not get him any. After a lot of badgering the boss sent him a pox doctors white coat which was no use to him. My mate got a bottle of red ink and made it look like it had been worn by a disastrous surgeon. He wire it to a team meeting but unfortunately our meeting had been moved to the board room and not the conference room. So wearing this coat he stumbled into a serious meeting of a lot of very senior managers. Sorry to the op if we have hijacked the post but I guess it can be brought back in line easily. I will try to find the picture of me using an Allen scythe with my coat trailing behind me

We had one of them when I was a kid. A great bit of kit.
A word of warning - the castings that hold the blades can be brittle. Ours broke when it collided with a large stone hidden by long grass.

Sad to see the passing of these old machines, they disappeared quite rapidly when some genius started recycling them as self-propelled 'squeegees' to push the byproducts of bovine digestion ( or slurry ) ( or poo for the initiated ) out of the collecting yards and the passages between cow cubicles. Still hard work, but 10 times easier and quicker than the manual alternative. In good order an Alan Scythe fetches good money when they (rarely) come up for auction - and definitely won't be mutilated - it'll get TLC to the point of looking almost factory new and only brought out to be proudly exhibited at agricultural shows alongside the standing engines and the vintage tractors.
