Dear Diary,
Yet another argument with the neighbour over the fence between our back garden. Well, to be more precise, the gate between the gardens.

It's been there a long time and recently the lock failed. The neighbour went out and bought a bolt.

Of course, I immediately replaced it with a latch as a latch is the only thing possible in this situation that could even begin to keep the gate securely closed. He insisted that a bolt would do just as good a job, and that in fact a bolt had been there all along until it had finally rusted away. Of course, he was mistaken. Despite the fact that he then provided "photographs" that happened to have the gate in the background I knew I was right. Who are you going to trust, me or your lyin eyes?

So, anyway, since that day all I heard from the neighbour was a muffled *bang* and that was the last of it. He's obviously entranced by my "ALWAYS LINKED" that I linked him to and is working his way through each page, carefully making notes. That noise, which sounded like something muffled perhaps by a pillow, was obviously him locking and bolting his door - once he saw my "ALWAYS LINKED" he knew he was in for the full ride!

Once day somebody is going to ask me a question about my "ALWAYS LINKED", I just know it!

(sorry, couldn't resist:)

Of course, I immediately replaced the latch but my neighbour insisted that there had always been a bolt there and that it had just rusted away. Of course, he was mistaken. Despite the fact that he then provided "photographs" which he claimed depicted a bolt on the gate it was, dear onlookers, clearly a type of latch which, whilst having the appearance of a bolt, was clearly and intelligently designed to perform a pseudo semi latching function.
