Moving house

Today was spend helping with a house move and I'm knackered and in severe need of beer!

House moving would have to be one of my least favorite jobs and that includes doing things with septic tanks or human remains.

But a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do!

There is a saying that two house moves equates to a house fire.

There is something to be said for burning down the house & starting afresh!

But I didn't tell you to do that and make sure your insurance is paid up!

You may notice a red glow in the sky if you look towards the hill.

Ignore it.

Nothing to see here.

In business (especially Hong Kong) it's called a Chinese stock take.

During a major exercise in Tekapo they had a fire in the brigade cp at some ungodly hour of the morning and I was listening to them calling for the fireies back in Balmoral (only about 75 miles away).

It took them a while to get there obviously and there was something of a write off.

When we started getting the list come though we had visions of these guys standing around a bonfire throwing shit on. The Q got to balance his store for the first time since Noah requesitioned a couple oars and a few people scored some perk kit.

Packs, jackets, boots, sleeping bags, compasses, wet weather kit... 4 M16's. To which came the response "will we find the metals parts if we sift the ashes?"

The M16's were removed from the list as those that had "lost" them "found" them again.
