Hi Everyone

I was just looking back through some of my Anne Beadell Photos and came across this photo.

I am not sure how many EO Members may know this man, but in his former life he claimed he was a Bare Knuckle Champion fighter.

One of my group told him his Troopy was no good and Nissans were better, and this was his immediate reaction......

So if you are ever out bush, keep an eye out for this former Champion.

Thanks goodness he has a very nice wife ( don't worry Roz, I will not dob you in ) that now keeps him on a very short leash.......lol



Cheers



Stephen

Graeme has a Nissan but he does not look to worried.
What other people think of me is none of my business.

Hi Chris

How do you know it was Graeme........lol


Actually Allan was telling us about his time when he worked in Woomera and it just looked a classic photo......

Nothing like a bit of fun to liven up the forum page.



Chers

It's not true, and Stephen knows it.

Actually, I was carrying a replacement windscreen for the Troopy but Stephen's abysmal photographic skills were not able to reveal it.

Anyway, either way, Graeme and Adam look pretty impressed with my prowess.

Cheers

Actually Stephen, if you look at Adam's eyeline in the photo you will see that he is not looking at me but at the camera. Probably thinking.... "Oh no, here's that pest with the camera again!"

Why, oh why, do I have to keep defending myself on this forum?
Oh well, back to the 15A plug thread. Skulldug is awaiting an answer.

Cheers
Allan

Of course it was Michelle, but it was Top Secret BS.

People ask what I did at Woomera and I reply "fire rockets".... then I get that same look. Sheesh.

Hi Michelle

It is true.......cough, cough......

This photo was taken just seconds before that magical word "Nissan"

Look how calm the people were, and why else would Allan get so defensive.....lol


All a bit a good fun for a change.


Surely you must have some photos that we could stretch the true with........lol

oopss I was logged in as someone else - see I am working - and you are interrupting me. I will have to delete that, and then repost. Big oops. They might not appreciate this at all.
