Enter our friend Barry B., former bike and dragster racer, on his return with Barbara from the UK to Spain where they now live, in a not-exactly-concours-condition Ami 6 estate.Was he up for it? He was! I couldn't bear to watch, because it's the best part of a two metre drop to the millstream from the base of the walnut, so there are no photos of the action. However, they triumphed (appropriately enough, though nortoned would have been better). Here is the result.

|This afternoon there were four nuts waiting to be collected|
Fortunately, there are plenty of nuts to come.
