Who remembers when... Jack Absalom used to have that TV show on the ABC, all about the outback and stuff, and he always used to have that can of beer wedged in-between his windscreen and dashboard, fire extinguisher apparently... whatever happened to that?

When... Peter Werrhit (sp) used to do the ads on the telly for the “Orbin 5 minute tent”...whatever happened to that?

We used to inflate our tyres out in the bush using one of those little diaphragm pumps you put into the spark plug hole... whatever happened to those?

In our Toyota’s, we would have the position on the Transfer case P.T.O. and for the newbies... it’s not please turn over... whatever happened to those?

You used to be able to buy your 4 x 4, get it home, unbolt the roof, doors & lay the window down, take it out spotlighting and blast the crap out of the windscreen wiper motor, because it is 2 1/2” below the line of sight crosshairs on your scope!... whatever happened to those?

Your Scoutmaster used to cart you all around in a Land Rover, with a Safari Roof. Scouts have gone downhill since they changed over to Volvo 240 station wagons..... whatever happened to those?

The Leyland Brothers when they crossed Australia west to east in a Volkswagen Bug! ... whatever happened to that?

Han’s Jockstrap rode around Australia on a Hodaka 100 Trail Bike, going through 5 sets of hand grips... whatever happened to him?

Those canvas waterbags our dad’s used to tie in front of the car, always bloody empty... whatever happened to those?

Snatch Straps were things you bought your wife on your anniversary... what ever happened to those?

Sitting down in the lounge room with your parents to watch the Sonny & Cher Show, keeping the box of tissues handy for mum when they sang “ I got u babe..” Mow when I sit and watch her, my kids also have the tissues for me, cause I can’t stop drooling.... we all know what happened to her!

Hope ya all had a safe weekend!!

You better be careful, Lone Wolf, - you know who is back (lurking, but back) it may not be safe for Lone Wolf, you might need to hunt in pack in future.

Do wolves hibernate?

Ruth, what do you do up there? Also, how do you manage to have an ISP that doesn't rip you off for country rates?

WHOA!!!!!!!

We pay like $25.00 @ month! Thats it, sum total, We have a line dedicated, and it's on like 14 hours a day. 3 Computers networked at home. Mine, Marks & Rhiannan's.

We can't get ADSL here at Bellevue Heights cause we are on a pair gain system, but I'm happy with the service.

Now that I've gone and upset you, have a nice day!

And then I pay $188 every month to Telstra just to have all the lines I've got (that's four), before I pay for the calls. But, I'm not complaining. There is Big Pond but I didn't go in for that scheme and I really don't download anything other than EO stuff. No point in having my 'puter on all day, no-one to look at it, too much to do.

I heard that Telstra have a system for ADSL now that can be used with Pair Gain systems - that is if it is in your area. Pair gain is where they have a shortage of lines and houses sort of share them isn't it. They are doing it in some areas.

Que, pigeons? Oh, you mean carrier pigeons? You thought because I was blonde that I wouldn't 'comprend eh?' didn't you? You are right!
How come you were talking about Viagra in that other post when you assured me one night that Ciailis never fails you? Hmmmm?

Just under 24 hours until you responded..... improving hahaha

Did you know that Cialis lasts 36 hours and Viagra 6 hours. Have you ever tried packing up your tent when the centre pole is still erected?? Quite a difficult thing to pack away. Six hours suits me!!

(Should I be anonymous now?)
