What's made you not grumpy but not smile either today?

Police helicopter was flying around the field opposite my house today, then a copper with a dog walks past.

I've no idea what's going on so don't know if i should be sad or happy and ben's daily chat thread idea seems to have died.

this is the field

Happy, new flexipipe on my Punto.
Meh, after a few miles the exhaust expanded and now makes a whistle noise.

Paid for some fencing and for it to be delivered. They said it would be here yesterday then it would be here today now it's coming tomorrow and Friday.

It better come or there's going to be some strong words.

Not happy.

Theories:
Your neighbor is growing weed, big time, and somebody tipped the fuzz.
Russian spy aircraft was hit by AAM and the administration is not sure what to do with the news.
Somebody found enormous Celtic funeral ground complete with the sword of Asterix and the cops are afraid the ghost of Obelix would come to collect it.
A person with a metal detector found unexploded 500-lb German WWII bomb instead of the sword mentioned above.

Alfa GTV's

I get good funds from one for almost having a monopoly on the spare parts market on some items but they are a pig to work on.... For example I got paid a good bit for handy parts today but spent my entire evening trying to put in a Fiat anti roll bar into one....

Meh

Re: What's made you not grumpy but not smile either today?

Lets restore this thread

Well im not grumpy about it - Sorta half happy but sorry to see it go almost

My torque wrench has decided to die its last death

It's clicked to tell me its torqued up - and then as i let go it dont release and go back...
i managed to get it back once
But its now double clicking and wont return

Cant complain, 2 - 3 years service, time to get a proper torque wrench

Re: What's made you not grumpy but not smile either today?

Finding some photos of where I live on www.britainfromabove.org.uk find it amazing how little has changed, also explains some things I've found a little odd, for example 68 collingden road, numbers 1-67 are nowwhere to be seen.

Having my X-1/9 delivered later. I'm disappointed as I was looking forward to the road trip, but glad to be avoiding the faff.

Germany beating Argentina in the world cup final; eventually.

World War II or the Falklands? I really couldn't have been less bothered.
