Foiled again

As today is a public holiday in Australia, I thought I'd have a lengthy sleep in. My plans were thwarted by the:
  • first garbage truck (recycling) at 6 a.m.
  • second garbage truck (ordinary) at 8 a.m.
  • police helicopter 9.30 a.m.
The garbage trucks have long gone but the helicopter continues quartering to the NW. No idea what that's all about but the area its covering is large enough to suggest a car and a crime are involved. Or several. No doubt the three local papers will be onto the story like ibis at a tip.

Well, tomorrow is Saturday so I get another chance to sleep in for an appallingly long time. This time I'll wear ear plugs.

We usually know it's a public when the retired neighbours haul out their lawnmowers to cut the grass they could have cut anytime the previous week :)

No problem with lawnmowers down here because the lawns have all died!

But I didn't mention the neighbours behind who decided that they were going to rip up the concrete in their backyard. Yep. With a conrete saw.
