Monday's mirth…

Well, hullo there!

Hope the weekend was enjoyable?

Went to Checkers on Saturday – they’re currently having the Heydays sale, and I needed coffee.


I got 4 bottles.

And ended up with 4 boxed of breakfast cereal!

Part of the special, don’t ya know!

At least I’ll have something to eat…

Got nothing else done.

Other than finishing a cute ebook and doing all the washing 😉

I, for one, am glad that this weekend is over.

My son’s bloody cat is giving me grey hairs – it’s too stupid to breathe – does not understand how dangerous my old man still is.

He might be deaf, but he’s still got teeth…

And he still does not like cats!!

Hopefully eldest will come fetch him tonight so I can open windows and relax for a bit!

Will miss the little blighter though…


Suppose I’ll have to start my day.

Go to work and continue the search for solid employment…

Do enjoy yours!

In case you need a laugh: Remember, it takes a college degree to fly a

plane but only a high school diploma to fix one.

After every flight, Qantas pilots fill out a form, called a ‘Gripe

Sheet’ which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft.

The mechanics correct the problems; document their repairs on the form,

and then pilots review the Gripe Sheets before the next flight.

Never let it be said that ground crews lack a sense of humor.

Here are some actual maintenance complaints submitted by Qantas’ pilots

(marked with a P) and the solutions recorded (marked with an S) by

maintenance engineers.

By the way, Qantas is the only major airline that has never, ever, had an accident.

P: Left inside main tire almost needs replacement.

S: Almost replaced left inside main tire.

P: Test flight OK, except auto-land very rough.

S: Auto-land not installed on this aircraft.

P: Something loose in cockpit.

S: Something tightened in cockpit.

P: Dead bugs on windshield.

S: Live bugs on back-order.

P: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear.

S: Evidence removed.

P: DME volume unbelievably loud.

S: DME volume set to more believable level.

P: Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick.

S: That’s what friction locks are for.

P: IFF inoperative in OFF mode.

S: IFF always inoperative in OFF mode.

P: Suspected crack in windshield.

S: Suspect you’re right.

P: Number 3 engine missing.

S: Engine found on right wing after brief search.

P: Aircraft handles funny……….. (I love this one!)

S: Aircraft warned to straighten up, fly right, and be serious.

P: Target radar hums.

S: Reprogrammed target radar with lyrics.

P: Mouse in cockpit.

S: Cat installed.

And the best one for last………………

P: Noise coming from under instrument panel. Sounds like a midget pounding on something with a hammer.

S: Took hammer away from midget
