I'm a bumpkin and I love working in rural areas, and this weeks been no exception.
It did make me smile when I went in to a local builders merchants to buy some scalpings (a type of stone) today and I asked if they sold it in little bags
"Nope only by the ton" said the old chap behind the counter
"We could sell you a tractor bucket full"

I knew then this was my kind of place!
In the end they sold it to me by the bag so long as I filled them myself. I had five bags full, but just like the old fashioned place it is they lent me the shovel and no one checked on me when I was finished, just help yourself and they trust you to do the right thing.
