What makes you grin? Antidote to grumpy thread

Recommended Posts

New fuel accumulator for the Volvo arrived a full week sooner than I expected. Second grin; getting a full set of Toyo tyres for the Peugeot, which is exciting because I've never bought a full set in one go before

The online marketplaces claimed that ebuygumm.co.uk was confusing internet users and taking “unfair advantage” of their brands. 

This defence is based on considering their own customers dumb enough to make the confusion between ebuygumm, and ebay, or between ebuygumm and gumtree. Or on having the same importance on the web, which is laughable.

Ok, no photo, but this morning on my commute to work I saw a W-reg mk1 Laguna in red with 3 or 4 burly blokes in it joining the A1 from the A64 - it looked in good nick, but also just looked fantastic.

Cressing Road, Braintree. That's a C15 van behind the Fiat. Driven down this road hundreds of times and never noticed the cars and house before.

If you head towards town from there along Cressing Road, take a left down Clockhouse Way, there's a garden full of rotted out Range Rovers and a very overgrown 105e Anglia on the left

I followed these directions using the Google, and before I got to the Range Rover house I passed this:

Yes. A person who has chosen to live in a thirties house which has been vandalised so that it looks like a very shit castle has somehow amassed enough money to run a Porsche and a Maserati.

Pictured: scruffy man, army jacket, rollie.

Not pictured: manky Volvo and farmer spec checked shirt.

 

Today at work someone asked if I had the sideburns yesterday. Then they asked why. I don't think "because they grew out of my face" was the answer they were looking for.

A large crowd of Dutchmen have turned up on their way to the Land Rover show. One guy had booked his car in for an mot as it's still on uk plates.An old Defender with massive wheels and a Cummins 5.9 litre diesel engine. Didn't seem to rev very hard on the emissions test but it passed.They'd wound the pump in.After the mot they are outside turning the diesel pump back to where is was before the test. HaHa rollin' coal as it drove away.

Test as presented.

Walking home earlier and I heard someone calling for her cat.

"Schrodie! Schrodinger!"

I couldn't help laughing and telling her what a brilliant name I thought it was, she was thrilled that someone had got the joke.

Nice little cat, too.

I haven't seen you on here for a while, SMH. I hope you're well

But Schrodinger wasn't the cat, he was the scientist.

 

Just like Frankenstein was the doctor, not the monster.

 

Calling your cat Schrodinger is like calling your golden retriever Joe Mangel, your poodle Den Watts or your horse Roy Rogers.
