    Building bikes is fun if you like doing it, I find it quite a satisfying task.

    WFH today, possible trip to scrappy then double PE.

    LD, I've had a long hard think about retirement at 56 and decided to go to 60 if the jobs easy on the stress levels. So I'm going to a small manufacturing plant that does everything it can do internally and everyone is happy smiling and has pride in what they do.

    It's not me that's doing it, it's something on our IT system messing with the data for Chrome on my laptop.
    IT dept's solution is to send me a new mobile phone.

    xxxx I'm tired tonight, long work work day. Plus back giving me gyp. Plus I've got Dad's taxi service to do, out then pick up again later. BrewDog Punk AF and Nanny State are good for nights like these. And looks it's going to chuck it down soon. Ach, tomorrow is another day.

    I think we had this discussion before and Pina protested that he was something l
    ke 72 feet tall and therefore not small. s-m-all.

    The MFs are all 6'2 in their webbed feet.

    So you're normal people height, or is that with all of you standing on each others shoulders?
  • MattFalleMattFalle Posts: 5,500
    normal people height.

    if we were all standing on each others' shoulders we'd be Pinno height.
