What did the postman bring?

Recommended Posts

LED panel all the way from China packed in just a thin cardboard box by some optimist :grin:

Do you mean it used to be a LED panel. Clueless shippers.  👎

Remonds  me of a set of drinking glasses received in the mail recently. Just in the thin cutaway cardboard display pack and simply put in a plastic carrier bag with  no packing at all. Amazingly arrived in perfect condition. 😯

Confucius say " Journey of 1000 miles start with one step" looks like it was on this box :D

Messaged supplier with pictures and they've offered me 20% discount ? don't think they've quite grasped the fact that it's broken.

The ED120 has arrived!

It was a nice surprise to find out that it comes with a RACI finder instead of a straight through one.

Now I need for the sky to clear so I can test it side by side on the AZeq5, with my bresser 127L.

Congratulations on the ED120.

I know who sold it to you and lemme tell you that this scope got minimal use, was always stored properly and you got the bargain of the century!

Thank you, it was indeed! I only wish that if he was forced to sell it for any other reason than losing interest, he will be able to upgrade to something even better in the future!

Postie came and went leaving letters and a work pack for my wife.

A bit alter, was taking the dog for a walk and he was parked at the gate, came and gave me a parcel he'd missed - it was a diverter valve core and a stepper for our boiler!

Thanks to the dedication of Royal Mail (that was at least a four-mile round trip to bring us that parcel) we now have central heating and hot water again!

Latest offer, why can't they see it's broken, according to them as it still lights up I can use it

How about a 100% refund and I chuck it in the bin ?

Not the postman, but my mate John. Direct from Glasgow. It's the nicest Whisky I've ever had.

RACI from FLO arrived this morning to join my Rigel on the 10".
Might be able to find more now...... 🤞

You should have seen dear Mrs W's face when I stated, 'new telescope's arrived'....he,he,he.
I had promised a thinning of the fold and have started, honest.

Have you tried Aldi's own whiskey. Speyside, islay and thier black label are all really good and award winners.

Now look what you've done, gone and ordered one now as I was getting fed up squinting through the RDF, just when I said I wasn't spending any more on astro' this year.

At least it will arrive in a relatively small box :grin:

I haven't, but I'll be in Aldi later so I'll give it a try.  

8 Yr old. About 50 euros. I'll have some of that please.
