    Are you jeebus? Do you have a hamphibious bicycle? Or is that a chain-driven ferry I see before me?

    Bleepin' phone scammers. Pixx right off you auto a-hole bots. Getting calls every other day from fake usually mobile prefix numbers. Nobody on the other end to swear at. Though a few weeks back one actual caller purported to be from Carphone Warehouse offering 'deals' on iPhones. Aye right. That one got an earful.

    Feeling tired today. Pottering about fettling bits and potting up things etc. Must be getting old.

    I just never answer the phone. mine actually says "suspected spam" quite a lot which helps, but if it's a number I don't have stored with a name, I ignore it. If it's a person with something important to say, they'll leave a message, and if it's not, they won't.
    Indeed. Though I had an appointment scheduled today for a glazier to come and measure up my broken through window so answered just in case it was him looking to change...

    Evening all. Walked into noddy squad this morning and boy did they live up to there nickname. Came up for air mid afternoon to have breakfast. Dont think the noddy will alter drive settings again. Made a big mess up 😖😡. Now sat in the garden partaking of alcohol.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Evening folks,
    Busy day of wfw, had to drive in as taking the Mini for an MOT. Had my first ever fail at that place ☹️ overzealous new tester actually looked at everything. Mainly stupid little things like faded indicators thankfully, need to actually get some welding done before getting the mot for a change.
    Just watching the cricket lowlights, the lad was there with a load of mates all in banana costumes. Apparently featured heavily in the live commentary.
    Off to the pub shortly

    i'm sure Stevo will be along shortly with some appropriate tax advice ...

    My considered advice. Keep it cash. Keep the carabinieri sweet and bribed. Don't piss off the Albanians. Keep it Italian. Tax will be the least of your worries.

    agree - Albanians are nasty.

    Keeping it Italian does keep it simpler I suppose, but the problem is get the Sicilians involved and they'll make you an offer you can't understand.

    Just watching Today at The Test on iPlayer now. Just saw a group of lads dressed as bananas at the centre of an attempt to make a beer glass snake the depth of an entire stand, to huge cheers from the crowd.

    That was them, the Mrs recorded the highlights and we now have video evidence that the origin of said snake was our son. Proud parent moment no 248 😂
    Somebody posted something about life advice being to enjoy experiences when you can as life is short. I think the lad is living life to the full, and I'm really happy for him. I will continue to do all I can to facilitate that.

    Bang on. Life is about moments of happiness, not letting life and happiness pass you by as you toil to be happy in the future. Creating joyful experiences, beer snakes, looking forward to a nice meal, going to see a movie, pub with friends, taking the kids somewhere exciting, making someone else feel good.

    Fill yourselves and family up with happy moments people 👍😘

    Yep, that's him in the green cap on the right of the picture arm aloft. Haven't heard from him yet but I suspect he's feeling a little fragile today.
