Uphill Struggle

By woolybill1
Oli&Joe's was formerly the Fox and Hounds. Whether the new restaurant has ever served a meal I doubt, for the building work was only completed as the pandemic took hold.

Thanks to Bob, Viola and Ollie for treasured Awards yesterday and to everyone who voted and commented. All very much appreciated.

Thanks for looking 😁

I love this, but I think you should sneak down there with a tin of paint in the dead of night and insert the apostrophe.

When he gets home he's going to adapt an electric motor to fit that barrow...
He's eyeing up the restaurant, wishing it was still a pub so could pop in for a quick one before continuing his uphill struggle.

Think I might listen to Dvoraks' New World symphony while viewing.
Nicely done Bill

Very good.

Poor fellow doesn't have an electric wheelbarrow, I kid you not, they are available. And I can't remember, but have been told on numerous occasions that I have been transported home in a wheelbarrow, well, you know how things get out of order when you where young.
Neat image of a place going no where.

Another pub bites the dust! A few years back my local was turned into a Tesco Express. This Covid business isn't helping with their survival either 😳 Think Malc's idea sounds good, fitting an electric motor! 😃👍

That's a huge strimmer he's got in his wheel barrow, his allotment must have been seriously overgrown. Smile
Nicely spotted Bill, or were you just hanging around waiting for someone with a wheelbarrow.

At first glance, I read that as OLD Joe's: complete with the man himself in front...

Excellent capture Bill and thought he might have built the wall and been admiring his handy work!

Hopefully it will have a better fate than it's predecessor!
