I actually DID it!!!

Tracy sent me to the local camping store, to pick up the swag she selected on Thursday night, and I went and collected it, a swag, and.... NOTHING ELSE!!!

Oh yeah, there were the new Coleman LED torches, of which one would have not been out of place in my arsenal of torches.... 15 I think was the last count...

Then there was that new pocket knife-come-weapon of mass destruction, which would have been just waaay cool to have.

But no. Wolfie was strong.

I came home with her swag, and when she asked where it was, I told her it was in the back of the Honda. When she went down stairs to get it, she asked... "Okay, so like where's all the other stuff Ian?"
"Didn't happen love."
"Do you want me to call an ambulance Ian?"

So, there you go fellas, it CAN be done.

Cheers

Wolfie

Did you know that there are rules for going to a camping store? And coming home with only one thing isn't amongst them!

Amongst the more important rules gramps are:

Gravity: Apparently it ALWAYS pushes down, BUT only as hard as the ground pushes UP. It is on little consequence today, but in the mid 70's a Minnesota man actually jumped from a water tower to test the Gravity rule and MISSED THE GROUND, some milliseconds after realising his mistake he realised he was in fact flying and before he could arrange his body parts to resemble ailerons to perfect "flight" he flitted off into the stratosphere and was never seen again. Noone has since challenged this rule.

Pythagorus: He is responsible for every builders rule, that being that if you measure 3 units one way and four units the other way and then position them such that the ends of each are five units apart, the angle between the first two is EXACTLY 90 degrees. This was briefly challenged by the 24=25 fraternity but proved false and has since not been challenged.

Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus: Enough said

It's a brave front and his strength comes from sniffing burning boot rubber around a campfire in the heart of the Vic Mallee. It was nearly a disaster and without the quick action of one alert individual we would have lost a good part of Vic's mallee flora and fauna but alas it has given Bonz a unique strength not often exhibited on internet forums.

Yeah, nudie is looking better with every beer today.

It is indeed a rare cherished moment that you relate Mr Dog and one that would indeed have rewritten the landscape had not one individual relocated said rubber.

Unique is what I am. Gramps you should know better that to have a battle of wits with an unarmed person.

And and and I admonish you not fine gramps, read again my comment, for self-admonishment is one of my unique points.

Wolfie ,

What were your feelings as you walked amongst the latest camping chairs without testing them for comfort ? Was that a tic as you marched straight past the rack of Columbia shirts and new wet weather gear ? Did you flinch as you noticed the new water containers , but kept walking straight on ? Were you teary eyed as you paid for the swag and held back from discussing the latest LED head light on display ? Did you nearly swoon when you walked straight past the the map and book stand near the counter , with the NEW Australian 4WD Atlas on display ? Did you swear when at the exit you saw the sign saying " Do not miss our new Stainless Steel Tent Pegs " ?

Maybe you are in need of post trauma counselling Wolfie . Either counselling , or your wife should take you back to the shop immediately , so that you can come to terms this very traumatic event .

Maybe when your wife sees how badly this event has affected you , she might be a little more understanding in the future . She must understand , it is a problem which affects one in three males in the Australian population . It is a problem we all face and have to come to terms with - it won't just go away . The sooner politicians recognise the problem and legislate to relieve this disastrous threat to male campers , the sooner the pressure will be off our mental health system .

Thud - there's the Herald - I wonder how many branches I lost of my Grevillea this morning .

Willie .

Wolfie ,

That's a tempting offer and I thank you very much for the compliment BUT my marriage was made in heaven . Let me give you an idea of your competition:

- My wife works and I yet am retired and go camping and fishing .
- While I'm away she tapes Super 12 and NFL football for me .
- She likes going to watch my local club The Woods play home games of ra ra .
- She loves going to the cricket and knows more about it than I do .
- She is a great cook .
- She can see the stupid side of things and does not take herself OR ME too seriously .
- Her job gets her two overseas trips a year , and she lets me come along and carry her bags if I behave myself and don't drop off and start snoring and farting at her work social functions .

If she has a problem it might be that she is not intelligent enough to see the funny side of my jokes . Weird aye ?

Cheers ,

Willie .

I have a solution for you Willie and Wolfie.
You can marry wolfie and that will leave willies wife to marry me.
Do you think she would be interested in an obese bald headed old bloke with few social graces, doesn't watch Super 12's or NRL but I do like the cricket.

P.S. I have available 1 slightly used Hand brake available. Fits all models
LOL
P.P.S. If she reads this she will probably be available sooner.

I will just put it down to a temporary lapse of concentration on your behalf.

You sir, are the 'Jones's' that we, the common folk, look to and try to keep up with.

I have lost count of the useless amount of stuff I have purchased, just to keep the name, 'shop-ala-Wolfie', going. Sad times Wolfie...............
