They just installed a weighbridge, at a cost of $77,000,
at our local ‘Transfer Station’ [i.e., ‘the dump‘].
I, as ever, was curious as to what its capabilities were.
I, not known to be bashful, asked whether they could weigh me.
No problem. We are all good friends over there,
I a near weekly pest.
The first reading came in at 150 pounds.
That wasn’t right.
They needed to re-balance it and ‘zero’ it.
Next reading at 170 pounds was probably spot on.
I had my Sony a7 II with a heavy zoom. That was probably 3 pounds.
Then my clothes, belt, shoes and wallet.
Reading at home, 90 minutes earlier had been 165 pounds.
So, it was cool.
Should be an interesting contest.
I tried to predict who might win and it, right now, looks like a toss up between: Australia, South Africa and New Zealand. Not sure that the current Sri Lankan team has sufficient firepower. India, as ever, could surprise. Pakistan, fresh off the tour of the West Indies, might not excel in this format.
But, let June 1, 2017 roll around. Who knows. Home Field advantage might spur England.
