Good eye.

After seeing the image of that service pack, I'm wondering whether we should
include this part in some way:
 
Part No: 3009pb022  Name: Brick 1 x 6 with Black 'POLICE' Serif Pattern
* 
3009pb022 Brick 1 x 6 with Black 'POLICE' Serif Pattern
Parts: Brick, Decorated
...either as a replacement or an alternate.

Don't think that's a good idea, it have the wrong font on it.

Have a nice holiday.

My question is if the seller's "sealed, unmarked polybag, consistent with
the 1980's" is truly how service packs were packaged then. If they were
packaged in such a way, then it seems logical to go with the evidence (which
shows the serif font).

At the least it could be included as an alternate if the seller's photo depicts
period-consistent packaging.

In that case, go ahead and add is as alternative (the image is probably a
late run of that set).

Have a nicer day tomorrow than you having today.

I didn't say anyone having a bad day today.
But perhaps you win on a lottery ticket tomorrow or making a killing at a garage
sale.
You never know what the future have in store for you ^_^

Sometimes things get lost in translation. I think he was just saying "Have a
good day!" or maybe "Don't worry, be happy!" or any other of the many English
sayings that wish people well.

That reminds of a scene from the Man from UNCLE where Hugh Grant quips, "For
a special agent you aren't having a very special day, are you?"



Seriously, though, it's been a great day - was tinkering around with Lego
in the morning, saw almost all of my family in the afternoon, and then had the
privilege of approving a basic change in an old inventory this evening. Some
Christmases I've had have been pretty awful, but not this one.
