Hey Blue, been a while.

Glad to hear you're doing all right. It's sure been quiet around here, but I didn't realize it's been 8 years since the death of MR.

I've gotten out of the jumping out of helicopters business. Now little kids laugh when I tell them I am the Duty Officer at the Fire Centre.

You may have gotten out of the "jumping out of helicopters business"
(sic), but the "jumping out of flaming helicopters business" will never get out of you.


#FlamingChainsaws notwithstanding.

I have a day off this Sunday and I'm planning on visiting the Bristol Aerospace Museum.
They have a full-sized Concorde there.
Pictures will be forthcoming.
Oh yes.

I've recently switched jobs from one retail outlet to another.
It's a new build, completely empty store, empty shelves and freezers, a whole new staff.
I'm the oldest one there, I have tattoos and t-shirts older than most of them.
I struck up a conversation with one of the young 'uns and we spoke about music.
I mentioned the last gig I went to see was Adam Ant.
"Who?" he replied.
I literally gave him the Picard facepalm.

I was at Lidl, a budget supermarket for nearly seven years and have recently switched to Iceland, a frozen food warehouse.
It has seventy four freezer cabinets.
I wear gloves a lot.

I decided a while back that Lego was a juvenile hobby and I should move on from such childish pursuits.

..........

Pff, who am I kidding?
I picked up the Ultimate Collector's Series Falcon last month.
Took about a week to put together.

Hey blue, glad to see the MR crew is are having an odd reunion of sorts

You will be happy to know that despite a distinct lack of resolution my 3d printed drone cage V1 was a rousing success.

Random history fact, 132 years ago today my great uncle twice removed (or something like that, We can trace back to his kokum) was executed by the government. He was the last person to ever be hung for high treason in Canada.

It's always good to have a black sheep of the family as an ice-breaking story at parties.
