Thanks Cage.. I'm sure I will find many uses for that GIF - will treasure it always. :P
There are three simple rules for making a perfect landing. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.

So, who got a dissappointing gift this season?
If ever in doubt about flying - drink a beer.
That will give you at least 8 hours to think about it some more.

Me. I got a pair of socks from my daughter. I happen to like socks but the problem is they are basically for, like, tiny size 4 feet, not my hurricane fallover-proof size 11s. So the missus appropriated them. :lol:

(I'm still trying to figure out if this wasn't a deliberate conspiracy :shock: :lol:)

No flying mags were received, or indeed anything of a gift nature - we were gift free as most years and without visiting family no disappointment was involved.
The mutts got gifts tho and they were most pleased with them.

...yep fairly certain that end Jan I will officially be informed, unless the biggest logistics contract happen to befall us?

...Roger - logistics - lost a lot of the mining and ship=spares contract - times are tough hey!

...funnily enough - this is the third time in my working career that this happens - told my wife the other day - "looks like I'm not suppose to be working" :D :D

...despite all this I know that things will work out :smt023 :smt023

Eish, Leo, sorry man, what a terrible thing to experience (and a really k@k non-gift for sure)

As I would say, things happen for a reason, but I'm damned if I know the reason.
