A popular location for photographs in Manchester city centre yesterday afternoon and this morning (the words "Oh" and "dear" also sprang to mind):

It proves you never know what's beneath your feet.  Or otherwise.

 

From time to time there were several persons in yellow waistcoats hanging around.  One of them told me that apparently it weighs twenty tons and that there was someone on it when it fell in, but they were ok.  I made the bloke who told me laugh when I said that "I bet he was a bit lighter in the bowel department afterwards . . .".

I would love to have watched them get that Genie lift out of the ground.  Then of course there is paying for the repairs to the rented lift and the pavement.  Not going to be a job that comapny makes any money on.

My new garage door:

 

gallery_245_77_471931.png

 

A bit 'industrial' looking unfortunately, but it's practical, gives me a couple more inches to get through and a few more inches usable length inside  It also seals very well so there are no drafts and it will keep the heat in to preserve the 240Z (and me!) over winter :)

 

The other upgrade for the garage today was a couple of used metal office roller-door cabinets to put under the bench (the roller doors mean I won't open them onto the Z!)  The cupboards are really solid and great at keeping things safe from dust, grime, me spilling and dropping stuff  them, etc. - much better than shelves, and neater looking too.

They look great.  They're a really healthy looking colour.  I'll be interested to hear what they taste like in due course, and I might have to have a go at growing some next year - as home grown tomatoes and runner beans are superb, and I fancy having a go at chillis.

Saw this on a car today.  It made me laugh, as most users of that car park aspire to drive in a mediocre fashion . . .

Lovely.  I particularly like the look of your long one.  I bet you can do some damage with that . . . :o :lol:
