  1. SO YOU COWARDS......... think you're tough because you jumped me?? Waited for me to be alone... in front of my van ??? I still handled all of you, left 3 of you on the ground laid out!! You're lucky I don't have any marks on my face. I have some on my arms and neck but so what!!!! I bet you didn't expect me to swing back since it was 6 against one. I might be old but I'm not too old for this! Yeah, I'm not gonna lie I was getting tired of fighting and just wanted to go back into my van , but I kept on swinging and made sure you got yours!!!!! All I have to say is, you started this and I finished it. Man I hate mosquitoes!!!...
  2. IRISH SAUSAGES ............... RACISM? Everyone seems to be in such a hurry to scream 'racism' these days. A customer asked, "In what aisle could I find the Irish sausages?" The assistant asks, "Are you Irish?" The guy, clearly offended, says, "Yes I am, but let me ask you something... If I had asked for Italian sausage, would you ask me if I was Italian? Or if I had asked for German Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German? Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was Jewish? Or if I had asked for a Taco, would you ask if I was Mexican? Or if I asked for Polish sausage, would you ask if I was Polish?" The assistant says, "No, I probably wouldn't." The guy says, "Well then, just because I asked for Irish sausage, why did you ask me if I'm Irish?" The assistant replied, "Because you're in *Bunnings."

  4. AN ELDERLY COUPLE STOPPED AT PIZZA HUT FOR LUNCH. AFTER FINISHING THEIR MEAL, THEY LEFT THE RESTAURANT AND RESUMED THEIR JOURNEY. THE ELDERLY WOMAN UNKNOWINGLY LEFT HER GLASSES ON THE TABLE AND DIDN'T REALISE THIS UNTIL THEY HAD BEEN DRIVING FOR ABOUT FORTY MINUTES. BY THEN, TO ADD TO THE AGGRAVATION, THEY HAD TO TRAVEL QUITE A DISTANCE BEFORE THEY COULD FIND A PLACE TO TURN AROUND, IN ORDER TO RETURN TO THE RESTAURANT TO RETRIEVE HER GLASSES. ALL THE WAY BACK, THE ELDERLY HUSBAND BECAME THE CLASSIC GROUCHY OLD MAN. HE FUSSED AND COMPLAINED AND SCOLDED HIS WIFE RELENTLESSLY. THE MORE HE CHIDED HER, THE MORE AGITATED HE BECAME. HE JUST WOULDN'T LET UP FOR A SINGLE MINUTE. HIS RELENTLESS SCOLDING FINALLY CEASED WHEN THEY ARRIVED AT THE RESTAURANT. AS HIS WIFE HURRIED INSIDE THE STORE TO RETRIEVE HER GLASSES, THE OLD GEEZER YELLED TO HER, "WHILE YOU'RE IN THERE, YOU MIGHT AS WELL GET MY HAT AND CREDIT CARD."

  6. Hi Chris,

    Some what surprised, you were sufficiently miffed to delete/remove my ‘tongue in check’ post on the KOG website.

    I would have thought you would have been able to see ‘through’ my comment & even have a chuckle about it.

    I understand your political allegiances, from your posts on social media.

    You have obviously misconstrued the jovial comment I made…..sorry you took offence.

    My comment was posted in a ‘joke thread’ on this site and I honestly thought it would (should have) been taken as such. 
    Please don’t come back to me with again with website protocol’s….I know them only too well. 

     

    On another note, sending you and your family condolences on the passing of your brother…..I hope the finalisation of his estate is as stress free as it can be. I would like to think that you are getting more than enough support from your NT family and friends. 
     

    Regards to you & Val

    Travel safe.

    Tony Heat.

  7. Hi Judy & Peter, Congratulations on the quick sale....sorry to see you leave 'the fold'. Pending successful sale ....you can go back to your original post on this topic, top right corner of first photo you will see three dots, click on those & you should be able to delete the post from there. Best wishes for the future. Tony H

  9. Hi Bilgola, The link does not work…….bugger
  10. A Jewish bookie was at the races playing the ponies and losing his shirt. He noticed a Priest step out onto the track and bless the forehead of one of the horses lining up for the 4th race. Lo and behold, that horse - a long shot - won the race. Next race, as the horses lined up, the Priest stepped onto the track. Sure enough, he blessed one of the horses. The bookie made a beeline for a betting window and placed a small bet on the horse. Again, even though it was another long shot, the horse won the race. He collected his winnings, and anxiously waited to see which horse the Priest would bless next. He bet big on it, and it won. As the races continued the Priest kept blessing horses, and each one ended up winning. The bookie was elated. He made a quick dash to the ATM, withdrew all his savings, and awaited for the Priest's next blessing that would tell him which horse to bet on. True to his pattern, the Priest stepped onto the track for the last race and blessed the forehead of an old nag that was 100/1. This time the priest blessed the eyes, ears, and hooves of the old nag. The bookie knew he had a winner and bet every cent he had on the old nag. He watched dumbfounded as the old nag pulled up lame and couldn't even finish the race. In a state of shock, he went to the track area where the Priest was standing. Confronting him, he exclaimed, "Father! What happened? All day long you blessed horses and they all won. Then in the last race, the horse you blessed never even had a chance. Now, thanks to you I've lost all my money!" The Priest nodded wisely and with sympathy. "You aren't Catholic are you my son?" "No, I'm Jewish." "That's the problem", said the Priest, "you couldn't tell the difference between a blessing and last rites."

  16. Greetings all, trusting this finds you well & happy (& dry if your in SE QLD) Last June Annie & I were travelling on the Plenty Hwy towards Alice Springs, very looooong story cut short we had a transmission failure with the 'tug' (GMC Sierra) we were towed into Alice and spent the next ten weeks there trying to get the problem sorted, (side story even loooonger) now back home (Maryborough) still having problems, but then that's another story. On removal of the transmission in Alice it was established that the failure of the transmission was caused by impact damage to a wiring harness under the vehicle being impacted by a stick or stone resulting in the wiring shorting out destroying the Transmission Control Module (TCM) and in turn locking the transmission in at least two gears. Being 'accidental damage' as opposed to a breakdown I was able to submit an insurance claim for the cost of repairs. I'm not going to name the (major player) insurance company or the repairer (as it it is irrelevant to this post). My initial dealings & enquiries with the insurer, were cordial, professional & reasonably stress free, but as the repair bills & wait times were ever increasing my stress levels started to rise. Although being very comfortable in Alice (such a beautiful town with so much to see & do) being 'so far' from home....Annie informs me I wasn't the easiest person to live with! A lot of free time was spent 'touring' Alice. On one of my tours, I happened to see a vehicle with sign writing on it, blazed down the side of it 'Solve My Claim'. Returning to the caravan I googled this company, & their website was informative and answered most of my questions, to my surprise they were based in Alice! I sent an email, outlining my situation to Solve My Claim (SMC). In due course I was contacted by David Keane the principal of SMC. David outlined his companies purpose & structure & how he believed he (SMC) could assist me with the claim process with my insurer. (Please note, at this time I have a good relationship with the insurer & repairer.....but as the $'s being paid out by me are ever increasing my stress levels were rising....wondering how much the insurer would cover & refund me) We decided to engage SMC, from that moment on, all my communications to the insurer were done by SMC. SMC's experience & knowledge immediately dropped my stress levels. To date SMC have been able to recover ALL of my outgoings relating to the repair of the transmission, plus an additional amount ($1000) SMC found in the small print of the insurers 'small print' Yes....we did have to pay Solve My Claim for their services, .....but we believe, the amount we paid for their professional services was far less than the extras SMC were able to secure for us in the claims process....with NO STRESS! Solve my Claim can assist with ANY insurance claim, house, vehicle, caravan etc. Have a look at their website https://solvemyclaim.com.au/ ...there only a phone call or email away! Annie & I would have NO hesitation in engaging their services again! Usual disclaimer...... Annie & I have NO affiliation with SMC other than being very satisfied clients! Travel safe Annie & Tony
  17. Welcome to the group Reinhold, looking forward to meeting you down the road one day soon, travel safe! Tony & Annie.
  18. Love the ad and ALSO the lamb ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
  19. Hi Matt, The only reviews you will get at the moment are from motoring journalists, as the vehicle (300series) won’t be available for public sale until possibly late this year…..any reports you read at the moment will be possibly biased toward Toyota……not doubting it will be a very capable performer!
  20. If you're thinking about getting one of those pre-paid cremation plans, Don't go to an English company, they'll lose the ashes. Happy New Year to all……travel safe!
