Room with a view

On Friday I had a Pinball repair man come and take a look at our machine. He is based in East Perth but had a job to do near our place. He worked on the machine for about an hour and a half and replaced several important bits and did a general tune up and clean for a grand total of $130. Bargain!
Yesterday evening we attended a two family show at my nephew's luxury suite on the 14th floor of a tower at Burswood, near the casino. Bruce bought the unit for $1M from the plans and he is back with his wife from the U.S. for a visit and to sell the unit. It's on the market for $1.2M and he has had one offer this last week. The views are fantastic looking West to the city and down the river. Interestingly his unit on the 14th floor is actually the 13th floor, but the builders were instructed to not name the floor the 13th, should it deter Chinese buyers.
Looking down river

We left reasonably early and others including my brother Graham and his partner, kicked on. When I got up this morning there was a message from Graham on the phone. He was ringing from the high rise and asked me to ring back. There were a few giggles in the background so I thought he was just joshing me. It turns out that as they tried to leave the building they went through a wrong door and were locked in. Fortunately, after a half hour or more, a resident was returning home and used the combination lock to let them out.
