Ill be watching Bathurst Dave, with 2 kiwi boys up front in the points championship, this race will probably determine the winner. Hoping for Shell Ford win. Just watching the ABs verse the South Africans, great game so far, very nerve racking.

Commiserations to you Dave'o....... Lowndse'y got the Bradbury award for fatigue management over the lightning fast Dave Reynolds (who I thought was going to blitz it for a superb win....... but that mountain is merciless on driver's and machine's ;) ).

Can you believe how fast they can lap ..... 2min 03's........ shit, just a few years ago 2min 06 was considered the all time unbeatable lap record (set by a Kiwi of course 8-) ).

I had a virus so I had to take it easy and there was nothing else I could do but watch the entire telecast....... :lol: ....... that's my excuse..... :mrgreen: (and then there was the MotoGP of Thailand.....yesss.. :D ).

Great to hear you are progressing towards your old life, must have been a bit surreal moving amongst all those crowds after so long

That's a good word for it....... I enjoyed the morning but did feel out of it until I drank my coffee..... then I was in the groove :lol: . Hectic places those central city shopping mall's - people milling about, noises, smells, pidgeon's scrounging scraps....... was great to get back home and relax tho. ;)

Oh, and my accountant got me a tax refund...... :D ...... about time something went my way :roll:

Bugger :( ...... struggled in for my checkup with the doc's at the big hospital (woke up with a slight virus making me feel unwell.......) and the registrar advised me that I have to wait until mid November before they can authorize me to drive again...... at least I have a date now rather than the months of wondering/hoping/asking about when I might be allowed back out into the turmoil on our Aussie roads 8-) .

:lol: :lol: read a news report in our local paper recently, where a driver was assaulted by a push bike cyclist while reversing his boat down a boat ramp....... seems the cyclist felt the boatie came too close to him so he knocked him down and kicked the guy 3 times (I have to wonder what a cyclist was doing on a busy boat ramp ;) ).......oh, that's right, the punch line........ the newspaper reported the victim as a 61yo 'ELDERLY' man... :o

I've just turned 61 today and this just adds insult to injury.... :roll: elderly..... be Fkd.... that's for when I'm in a nursing home... :lol:
