    Default Waking up to a Film Crew

    First sign was Mrs CFL reporting that signs saying "LOC" & "UNIT" were pointing down the private lane towards my house coming back from the shops. 15 mins later the locusts descended.

    I now have 3 Land Rovers being wired up for sound and video in my paddock and trundling forwards & backwards from the river. Plenty of Enterprise Rental vans, SUVs, catering vans and security.

    g out of my mind I went over (usual pre shower routine) and asked was asked by security what I was doing there. "Erm, you are standing on my drive way and are parked in my paddock.", "Oh it was a last minute thing, our location was changed", "We are filming XXXXX".

    Anyhow, I am now drinking their IPA's and eating cheese from their catering. I shall give a prize to he/she who guesses what they are filming. Bonus points for suggesting how much I should charge them for the location fee, based on your guess.

    Clues:

    *Not a cool story bro.
    *No the DWP do not have me under surveillance
    *Not porn
    *Not can't pay? We'll take it away. (Surprising, I thought Alphabet would have reclaimed the cars long ago)
    *Not XXXXX

    Hasn't Mrs CFL told you she is expanding her horizons a little? you get the Gimp suit with suity and she gets the Iron Rod and Ben Dover!

    Top Gear?

    I haven't told how bad our finances are at the moment, so she puts out for free.

    Nope, but did work with them a few years back. This one has nothing to do with me, they just showed up randomly.

    "Carry on Covid"?
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    All of them are wearing their masks on their chin because it steams up their classes/camera lense. It is true - they told me this. The talent are apparently in a COVID bubble and are regularly tested so allowed to sit in one of the Landrovers together for shooting. This sounds like bulltulip to me.

    Carry on Covid would make sense, but not right on this occasion.

    Of course you must have been really hard hit. Have you seen any improvement yet?

    I thought they had to book if they wanted to film.

    If you have a quirky place maybe you can rent the house for filming?

    What Ben Dover or Top gear?
