Fuel EX 9 29

Robyn has been taking pictures of me and my new bikes for thirty years.
This is so she can look back when we retire and remember where all the dough went!
Redwoods here we come.

Summer Hill

So Saturday was not the best weather but none the less we went up into the Papamoa hills and played 9 holes at Summer Hill.
So this is the old guy (me) placing my tee. But where the hell is the green?
 Later the mist (cloud) cleared and this is Jay sleeping on his mum. It's  exhausting  for the young guy watching his dad and Pop hit so many shots.......

Piccadilly Arcade Tauranga

Christmas Feature. Look up....

Sobering Facts

In World War II, British soldiers got a ration of three sheets of toilet paper a day.
Americans got 22. New Zealanders got? Possibly one and have to share it!
Our guys and girls had to put aside their need for privacy. That's war and that's horrible.
They did it with great spirit and had a laugh whenever they could. I have it first hand from my dad.
Thank god for those people.

Can you imagine the road toll if this was a car?
Bloody good memory needed on the job in those days.

Home Of Aussie Cricket

MCG, Melbourne Cricket Ground
 Cricket legend, Dennis Lillee

 I tried to get inside but got stopped at this point
 Its a fairly impressive venue I just had to go check out.
You can walk there in about 10 minutes from Flinders Station downtown Melbourne.
