    Back in the early 60's there was a young boy, about 9 years old, and every time his parents pissed him off, by not letting him do what he wanted to do, he always said that he would run away and join the circus. Little did this young lad know, that 60 years later, as a pensioner, he would. Yes folks, I'VE JOINED THE CIRCUS. Well, I will actually join on the 29th of this month. 
    This all came about because a mate from daarn saaf visited in his rig and then had brake probs. Took him to a RV specialist I know and arranged to get his rig towed over there. While he was there somebody turned up in a big RV with a traffic on the back. Had a chat with my mate and asked him if he wanted a job. Mate couldn't do it because of health reasons, but he got me a number which I rang a couple of weeks ago. Ivor the boss fella was away for 2 weeks and would give me a ring when he got back. Had almost forgotten about it to be honest, when he rang.
    It's called Circus Vegas and I had the interview this morning at the NEC where Job entails mostly driving, crew minibus, small trucks with trailers, etc from one site to the next and also doing maintenance work when not. I think it's right up my street. Go all over the country, always got lekky and water on site and get paid. It just goes to show, you never know what's round the corner.
     I may have to do a circus shite thread. I'm thinking it might  be a first on the much venerated Autoshite, although I could be wrong. There are those on here who have done some odd stuff.

    Shall we talk about benefits?  (Again!!!)
    The story so far... I applied for Universal Credit in a somewhat last-ditch attempt to get some benefit, any benefit!, coming in.  I was approved, but told they can't send me any money because Lynne's state pension raises our household income too high.
    So... couple of weeks ago they asked me to attend a Work Capability Assessment.  I did that, and the doctor who examined me agreed almost instantly that I'm not fit to work, at all.  Last week I got a message telling me they accepted that and would be sending me £432 on the 14th.  And implicitly, every month thereafter.
    Thursday this week, a message arrives telling me they failed to assess Lynne's pension correctly, and therefore will not be sending me £432; not only that, it's too late for the first instalment, that's already gone out, so they are going to have to reclaim it.  How fucking cruel is that???
    And then a text arrives from my bank telling me £432 has been paid in.
    I think I'm allowed to be grumpy over this mess.
    Meanwhile I have an appeal in for PIP.
    FFS.

    Not so much diecast this time...

    ...As the diorama surrounding them, specifically a cardboard representation of Sun Hill nick in the mid-90s.
    Or, if some of the decor were to be altered, it could become Newtown in the 60s...

    There's also a side-road with some lockup garages...

    I rescued these with the invaluable assistance of @mercrocker from someone who otherwise would have thrown them away, but now that I've got them set up in my model room, it's clear they take up a LOT of space.  It's nice to have such an expanse of scenery, but I really can't afford the space, especially if I want to sell the antique table the copshop is sitting on.
    So, anyone want to take them on, for free?
