The word is spreading that a certain forumite had an unlucky weekend whilst negotiating a rather steep descent somewhere between Sydney and Perth in the lower regions of Oz. Some severe panel damage and a stuffed drive train was done to a very nice looking 4by. Aparrently he is in the dog box with SWMBO as it was a boys weekend away. An unhappy chappy. We all hope that he will own up to his neglected driving skills...maybe he has been banned from using the computer. We shall have to wait and see what transpires. :-)

Hello Muddy Girl,

Unfortunately I am not at liberty to divulge this persons identity as I have received the information in confidence. It is up to this person him/herself to come out of the closet(where SWMBO/HWMBO has locked him/her in). I can divulge however that this person is a regular contributor to this forum.

What is SWMBO and the other abbreviation you left on this thread somewhere.
Excuse my ignorance on this other language but I have a hard enough time understanding my kids these days let alone this internet language.

It's also not in the Abbreviations list.

Is it Des Lexik ????

Ah yes, Jeffrey...there are a number of forumites within the latitudes of Australia who know each other personally and only since being on this forum...hence the banter. Some others keep in contact via personal emails sharing information and stuff. Hopefully one day there will be this huge network of friends treavelling around and dropping in for a cuppa who have all been dated on this forum..........

I knew this time would come Mr Lexik, and BTW you are still owed a couple of tricks as your tally of misdemeanours have reached quite an impressive total.

Mrs. Al, I think Willie will milk this one until he thinks he's way in front.
I heard a whisper that he and Uncle are looking at a proper truck at the moment. That might give me a bit more ammo to fire back at him later.
One scoop I have neglected to mention is that I have actually seen the famous prickly pear topping. Didn't get to taste it though.
