Had a nice visit at the weekend from Thomas (a young German fellow and his lovely friend Nicky) - they posted about a month ago on the Simpson Desert and I told them about the 3 Czeck people who had just crossed E to W. They have been travelling in Aus for 12 months and have only 6 weeks to go. It was Thomas who found the sick fellow and came and found me (bless him). Anyhow they went to Big Red yesterday in their old (but well-equipped 60 series) but he didn't feel confident enough to tackle the Desert - last seen heading to the old causeway - I gave them some meat and they were going to tackle the Yabbies - having learned about them in South Australia some time ago.

Oh Great Aunty Ruth, you are such a lovely person and a good samaratin too.
I tried to offer some assistance to a young Aussie couple on the side of the road yesterday and was rudely told to engage in some sex and travel (in other words eff off) I did leave him to his dilema. The good ones make it worth while though.

Bonz, it's such a comfort that you are still my friend. You are quite correct about so-called friends who do things behind your back, e.g. confiding in them over a few small scratches and they blow it all out of proportion. NROFLMAOPMP

Uncle Des, I am still your friend even if you are a bad driver and you are always welcome to find a camp at my place. Maybe the lesson is not to tell your friends of your errand ways..hahahaha If the last letters PMP in your reply are what I think they are then you had better get your bladder checked out at the doctor.....Hmmmmmm.... I know a friendly doctor who may be available soon.......

I know the effect.
I stumbled out of the bush after 7 days in the high county onto the tar to find a wedding party with the bonnet up and blown hose.
I had just fixed a puncture earlier. My wife says she had never seen me so dirty and wild looking in our 32 years of marriage.
Anyway the wedding party knew we could help as they could see we were prepared and looked resoursfull...waving us down... but took a step back and hesitated as we stepped out of the 4wd.
We certainly looked a fright, standing with these people who were imacculately dressed.
Well we patched them up with gaff tape and refilled them and they headed to the wedding reception without further incident very pleased to have met "us" whoever we were.
Regards
Joe

Bonz, if you were here for the Races I was the Banshee with the big whip and chair. Remember seeing me? I'm the one who goes to all the parties at 3:00 a.m. and tell them to shut up and go to bed, then at 6:00 a.m. I send Glen the Garbo round to their camp to tip 44s full of bottles up and down the trailer till they all wake up. Hehehehe.
Let me know when you are coming so I can arrange to go out on the plane the day before. Hehehe.

You're on Ruth, and I reckon I do recall you, ruggedly gorgeous, sporting a 10" bullwhip and collecting money for the RFDS

Hahahaha. If I win Lotto I won't be here next year - if I win Lotto I could afford to buy the house next door to Willem. Wouldn't that be fun?

Any house next door to Willem would lose it's value very quickly.
He continually gets these drop in's all the time and they make lot's of noise

Dear Mrs Doyle( 'ruggedly gorgeous' to quote Bonz)...If you sold your Landcruiser you could buy a whole street in Peterborough. Living next door to me won't be fun. I have a habit of getting offside of neighbours..........and then there is the added continuous noise of the angle grinder being used to change an old Nissan into something it can't be......and there are the drop ins....what more can I say........

Willie, when I read the bit about a Banshee sporting a whip, I really got excited for a moment then I remembered anothet tag she had, The Wicked Witch of the West. Its only a cruel hoax to attract visitors.

First Prize would be - stuck in the Simpson Desert for one month with Willem in his broken down Nissan, Des Lexik in his bent one - only prickly pear juice to drink, no dunny paper and no computer for these two lunatics to annoy people on! It would be my luck that this would be the prize I would win. You'd think about Hurry Curry honestly you would.

First Prize would be One Day at the Yabbie Hole with Ruth and her black plastic thongs and stockwhip

Second Prize would be Two Days at the Yabbie Hole with Ruth and her black plastic thongs and stockwhip

If Ruth wins Lotto then she can move to Kalumburu with a prayer that there are no internet connections there.

If Ruth buys a house in my street I will sell up and move to Berri.

Well Willem - you'll be Berri happy there. As for you Bonz, in Willem's dreams! (He's probably got one in the cupboard in the room where the music, magazines and computer are kept - bet there's a lock on the door too)
