Hundreds of Bubbles

A builder lost the bubble from his spirit level when it dropped into a drain. He took a torch from his tool box and peered underneath the road. The sewers were filled with water and on the surface he could see hundreds of bubbles. His smile was reflected back over and over as he realised he would never again have to buy over-priced air from Screwfix.

For Kristi who is in need of a bubble right now.

    Hello Mr Jones!
    It is always a treat to be included in your mail list. I love this, it made me smile. Thankyou.
    It might be time for us to meet up…. it would be great to see you (has it really been 16 years???!)

    BTW, I truly hate screwfix. Why say they have a 7day delivery when clearly it is 2 months for a startrite 502E 3phase bandsaw? ha ha!!

  2. Ho, ho, ho. Laughing 🙂 🙂 🙂 I see you’re still in love with Screwfix 😉
