...my first ever Lincoln City sticker today. Stuck on the back of a car waiting at the traffic lights of Dewolfe St and Memorial Drive in Cambridge MA. S'funny, spotted a Norwich City one in the back window of a car two days earlier.
...I answered a call to assist with a broken water pipe that was flooding a below grade kitchen. I had (with the out of town residents permission), to gain access by whatever method I deemed appropriate in an effort to stem the flow which was spilling into an abutting residence. Quickly entering the property by jemmying the window on an attached addition, then dropping six feet to the floor, I encountered a locked door leading to the main house. Leaning back, a firmly planted boot sprang it wide open, taking some of the moulding off the wall as it went. One of the two local plumbers following me turned to the other and said, "it's like working with James Bond".
My associates of Italian heritage are having their big dinner this evening, yeah Christmas Eve is their thing, though it may be more of a Sicilian thing, dunno. Rick, who’s of German descent, he exchanges gifts on Christmas Eve, but the meal is tomorrow. Then the Dutch open their presents on the 12th day, which is January 6th.
We’re all over the show, anyone got any interesting twists on Yuletide?
...looking around for a local area message board / neighbourhood patch or whatever name they call it for (North) Wembley. No success as the word Wembley brings up a hundred references to the friggin' stadium. Anyone point me in the right direction?
Some chunt took a cheque( spelled correctly for British viewers), out of the book which was in my ‘field office’ (the bag I always have with me in the truck). They forged my signature by cleverly taking a utility bill I had on the dashboard and copying the rather distinctive moniker from the check within (gone back American), and farkin’ well done me for for over sixteen grand. The dough went out on Thursday, I didn’t notice until Sunday morning when I was on the phone and up the local Police Dept within 30mins. Today, with no notification from the bank, the missing cash was returned. I called the banks Fraud Dept, I’d swear they were wondering why I was concerned, “you’ve got your money back didn’t ya’…er yeah but I want to fcking well prosecute! What in fugs name is wrong with the banking world, this ‘crimeate change’ is a joke!
I was listening to a local radio station and the hosts were saying that football (soccer), has overtaken (ice) hockey in popularity and is now the fourth most watched sport in the country. Maybe, I note may NHL games have plenty of empty seats. One of my girls went to a Las Vegas Knights game last weekend and the pics she sent showed a half empty rink.
