Wouldn't call her "wifey". That is the name of a famous porn star and her site. Will admit though she is a beautiful woman.

I only know my wife to be wifey....am not au fait with your hobby ;)

Am blissfully ignorant of your better knowledge :)

In deference to impending trip north...and likelihood of spending much time in pool and with the departure of 'that bloke' :rolleyes: i thought id buy some of his Boardies ...hoping they'd fit !

Watts you talkin' bout Willis?

Did you get the Paul Callery size or the Gawn with the Wind size?

Must confess i can't remember a time i was less interested in this time of year.

One assumes all residences within cooee of Goschs are either razed or in the process. Supposedly something happens Friday but if we still rely on this as a panacea we've gone nowhere. If anyone from this plays for us in 2018 we're in strife so ill only bother a quick perusal for familiarity prior to our festive supper and then its back to the Beanos !!

The good wife has booked us into some silly snorkeling upon the Reef during our venture nth nextvweek ..i expect it's what we tourists must do...i wonder if its Mai Tais , Mojitos or Margueritas for lunch on such excursions. The wonder is deliciously exciting.

Cricket these days seems as exciting as....crickets.

Think im starting to understand Gils attraction to that Chukka past time. At least they have bubbles !!

Well...i see the Trolls are up and at it in other threads. Think I'll leave that alone and savour the sanctuary of civilised , if obscure, nutterings of the varied eccentric raconteurs that on occasion take respite among us.

There is of course all you lot too ;)

I'm not sure that you are not boasting BB, making us suffer down here, whilst enjoying the tropics. Be aware of the creatures that lie in wait for the unsuspecting tourist. Keep wifey close at hand.

I must say though that your sentiments about preseason and what may happen on Friday are shared.  Also cricket.

I would normally be looking forward to the Ashes series but not at the moment. As my better half said last night,  its like following the no name brand or black and gold brand of cricketers.  

Is it simply that all the codes are just saturating the market these days and we only have to wait 5 minutes before there is another match, game or competition here or in other parts of the planet. 

It leaves many of us sports lovers feeling jaded.  

Perhaps we need a bit of big game fishing or bull fighting to raise the adrenalin levels.

gotta agree here ernest. when i was young was a big fan of tennis......the davis cup......the big tournaments...etc listing on my radio. then they went full professional and pretty much there were tournaments one after the other all year....most meaningless and the players following the money.....staggering off the plane from one tournament straight to the practice court of the next. I haven't followed tennis now for years

The Funny thing Ernest...is two things I detest are Heat and Humidity...in many ways I travel under sufferance.  I hate summer. Im only going as Im assured there'll be constant access to cooling liquids  or a pool...or both...or similar.

The good lady as does much or her brood relishes  Qld... I'm really not a fan though  Coolum in early Autumn is quite pleasant.

We bloody live 100m from the beach...if i stand up I can just about see it..It holds no mesmerising allure for moi. ( though the Dog does rather enjoy a frollick )

We've just bought land  in Venus Bay...I get to spend 6 months next year..building a house...by the f*&^%$!!!  beach.. Im over them...lol

A cool mountain stream with vistas of mountains, snowcapped.....ahhhhhh now  we're talking  but the Bright build is still years away :(  ...so alas...Ill go to bloody qld...but dont expect me to enjoy it  (well  not too much )...apparently its some place near the mirage.. so not too shabby ( bloody doesnt want to be  lol )

I of course as I feel sheepish leaving you all will keep you informed daily about the suffering.

Im informed one doesnt wear  crocs up there.....in fact crocs are to be avoided entirely.....apparently the beach  will be in 'stinger' season...i mean wtf is the attration lol... No lets go snorkelling...  in teeth infested waters..

We're not that bright we humans are we....

the bubbles better be chilled thats all I can say.......

Bloody Holidays.

Being retired everyday is a holiday. This year the missus booked holidays in august / sept. To tour Ireland and see family in Scotland.

I was spewing at first but didn't miss anything. She has now booked next years little jaunt Canada / Alaska.

You guessed it Sept./ Oct. Just so she gets a chance to check the Northern Lights off the Bucket List.

My No. 1 is to see another Melb. Premiership. I hope we win 2 in a row

Oh BB that really is not only very true but funny.

Many of us can relate to the diplomacy of marriage.

It was noticeable 2 years ago when I spent 2 weeks in Port Douglas with my better half just how much the locals don't tell you. Just like the tourist brochures. I'm talking about stingers, the location of crocs, and other deadly creatures. As one local explained to me, ""no we don't swim at the beach, we swim in pools."

They really regard us Mexicans as a bunch of mugs. 

Anyway as they say in the classics, happy wife, happy life. 

Enjoy.

Don't tell my father, may he rest in peace, but not only do I support a Mexican football team but I also married one.

Long live Mexico!

BB " Hopefully not just the pursuit of happiness but catching it " didn't cost you $130000 for that block of land at VB

About 40 years ago I bought a few blocks in VB for $3000 average and retired to property development

I helped set up the Tarwin Sharks in the Alberton League way back then

My self nominated job was social secretary and I achieved  a profit of $19,000 in year 1 out  of a bathtub and the same in year 2

My point. stroll up and be a member of the local community and give it a go.

But don't sell your Melb'n freehold in pursuit of a a happiness !

Yes but it's a family secret as my old man was never keen on the Mexicans. 

I don't think he ever accepted the fact that I started supporting a Mexican Football team. But that could be due to my continued singing of the Grand Old Flag after we beat the Shockers. He did appeared to get really upset every time I called after his AFL team was flogged by my Mexican team.

However, on a more serious note, my wife had once commented on the fact she liked Collingwood. That is when I found Demonland!

Im sure ill wander along , buy a snag, sink a tinnie or two.

VB won't be a permanent residence. More a holiday destination for us, our family and friends etc. Probably let out fron time to time.

I can assure you we paid far less than 130...even less than asking ;)

Had originally thought about Inverloch but left our race too late there. Both wife and I had holidayed at VB in younger times and now we just like it as it away from ALL the ratrace. Not a lot in good ol VB. At least theres a Bar ;)

My memory of VB was of being devoured by man eating mosquitos. 

Now I don't have many phobias, but mozzies is one of them.

Yes we went to Japan this year  week before GF.   didn't matter this year at all.

 

But you will not see any northern lights at that time of year   needs to be much later,   much colder   and a long way past Juneau  or Skagway   go dees

Thanks for the advice Mac.

My girnal still has a use by date of Oct 2019, so I don't know what the bloody deer are on about.

And I'm having my lum spring cleaned this week. I chose berry bouquet as the fragrance they will use....
