Tommy's Chogs are looking snug and secure, Lisl.
Lisl: Nicely out of reach, Ray
I like the color of whatever a Chog is!
Lisl: Can't say whatever it is isn't colourful, Elizabeth
I looked up chog. One definition was not the nicest thing.
Nice shot, though.
Lisl: Oh dear, Michael. I must look myself
Must be a Southern thing....Makes a nice photo though.
Lisl: After Michael's comment, I thought I had better get a definition - here it is, Frank - from your part of the country: Northern England dialect the core of a piece of fruit ⇒ an apple chog

Tommy's chog's red, and quite mysterious really..
Lisl: I have given Frank a definition, Chris. I thought you would spot that apostrophe

Lisl: Northern English dialect for the core of a piece ofo fruit, Philine. It was a new one for me. Obviously here it means something else, I know not what
Tommy is welcome to them
Lisl: Let's hope he appreciates them, Bill

I think a that a chog is really a chock; a wedge of wood for propping up something. I especially like the oil burner assembly on top and the shape of the stone above it.
Lisl: I think that stone has come out of a Church, Alan. Thank you for your idea of"chock"
Well they fit neatly in this niche Lisl.
Lisl: You can say that, Chad

belle trouvaille
Lisl: Thank you - an odd find
Whatever does that mean, I wonder.
Lisl: There are some definitions but none of them seem to fit, Mary

Chog. A dialect word for a chock ?! Sounds feasible.I thought chocks were carried by a Carter to place under Cart wheels when driver was absent to deter the horse from moving away. Could be wrong though.
Lisl: Sounds very likely, thank you, Hugh
They must be chocks, like the ones put under vehicles to stop them rolling on a slope, but what an amusing find.
Lisl: I think you are right, Brian
bien trouvé!! amitiés
Lisl: Thank you, jean pierre
i haven't a clue what a Tommy's Chog is Lisl... but it's nice that they built a grotto and gave it a nice brass hat....petersmile
Lisl: Someone's quirky little niche, Peter

An interesting capture. I wonder what it means?
Lisl: Someone suggested chocks to go under tyres to stop a car running downhill
