My 91 year old father, who lives alone, decided to trim back the lilies in his lily pond. Some were considerably out of reach so he was stretching and leaning forward until the inevitable happened - an al fresco bathing situation.
He managed to scrabble out of the pond which is about 4 ft deep, having immersed himself totally in a black slimy morass.
Unwilling to go indoors in such a slimy state and covered in pondweed and heaven knows what else, he had the presence of mind to lock the side entrance gate to his garden before stripping everything off and no doubt cavorting around au naturel whilst hosing himself down with the garden hose.
He has managed to wash all his clothes (including his rattin' hat) and can now see the funny side of it all. He unfortunately is not readily agreeing to repeat the performance for the camera.
Silly old buffer!
