Sod that! I'm plenty busy enough already

Countin' flowers on the wall
That don't bother me at all
Playin' solitaire till dawn with a deck of fifty-one
Smokin' cigarettes and watchin' Captain Kangaroo
Now don't tell me I've nothin' to do.
"Who's bike is this?
"Its not a bike babe its a chopper."
"Who's chopper is this?
"Zed's"
"Who's Zed?"
"Zed's dead babe, Zed's dead..."

Don't count on it. It took me three weeks of campaigning to get my local town council to open the tennis courts after the government and the LTA said it was ok to do so.

Absurd excuses included:
  • we have no way to police that the users are following the rules (you are not the police)
  • we can't afford to hire a full-time cleaner to clean the nets after each use (players can do any pre-cleaning they want to)
  • we can't open unless we can guarantee they are virus-free (there are no guarantees, and nothing is virus-free)
  • we do not want to be responsible for a decision like this (then resign from the council you muppet)
  • creating an online booking system would be too expensive (I have set up a free one for you - it took 10 minutes)
[edited for typo]

I know Mark; problem is nobody wants to take responsibility, HMG are announcing headlines and not backing it up with solid info. My trade body has covered its ar$e by saying LA's need to inspect areas prior to opening them and the gym Co. are seeing it as a profit making exercise by selling sanitiser distributors and expecting me and others to jump on inspections at a drop of a whim!

Morning all, good news yesterday planning agreed in principle for the new garage man cave plans - architect over tomorrow to finalise details and then we can get them submitted. 8 weeks for approval so fingers crossed it will be built before winter sets in.

Double length, double width with plant room & tool shed at the back (including room for little tractor) and space for 2 ramps which means at a push room for 6 cars. Upstairs mezzanine office / man cave with kitchenette & shower room, double as self contained guest room when family / friends come over.

Couldn't get out of the place quick enough at 16 as fast as my 77 Honda SS 50 could take me into the Big Wide World :)
