I’m still on the fence about what to replace our old fence with.
In the meantime, as promised, here are a few idioms about hedges.
- Hedge your bets. Do something to prevent or prepare for future damage or loss. With the banks failing in the US, it’s a good idea to hedge your bets by putting half your money in gold.
- Hedge in. To make a border or barrier around something. When I came out of AEON, I discovered my car had been hedged in on all sides by other cars! I was stuck.
- Hedge fund. A high risk high return investment. In 2011, his hedge fund had a return of 50 percent.
- Dragged through a hedge backwards. Look messy or disheveled. What happened to you??? You look like you got dragged through a hedge backwards.
- A hedge between keeps friendships green. Privacy is important for good friends also. I didn’t ask too much about his children. You know what they say; A hedge between keeps friendships green.

Little hedgehog song:
How was your Golden Week? I spent three days in Tokyo, visiting my grandkids. It was wonderful. Then I was very busy for the rest of the week, but I did find time to finish some projects, and enjoy spring a little.
