  5. G’day Bob, How was it (immediately) before the wheel rotation ? Tony
  6. I use a heat gun as opposed to a hair dryer…..get nice and warm then rub off with a rag……it is a slow tedious job. New sticker kits from Kedron are quite expensive……get a price from a pin stripping/moulding guy that does car yards.
  7. The only cow in a small town in Poland stopped giving milk. The people did some research and found that they could buy a cow from Moscow for 2,000 rubles, or one from Minsk for 1,000 rubles. Being frugal, they bought the cow from Minsk. The cow was wonderful. It produced lots of milk all the time, and the people were amazed and very happy. They decided to acquire a bull to mate with the cow and produce more cows like it. Then they would never have to worry about the milk supply again. They bought a bull and put it in the pasture with their beloved cow. However, whenever the bull came close to the cow, the cow would move away. No matter what approach the bull tried, the cow would move away from the bull and he could not succeed in his quest. The people were very upset and decided to ask their wise rabbi, what to do. They told the rabbi what was happening. “Whenever the bull approaches our cow, she moves away. If he approaches from the back, she moves forward. When he approaches her from the front, she backs off. An approach from the side and she just walks away to the other side.” The rabbi thought about this for a minute and asked, “Did you buy this cow from Minsk?” The people were dumbfounded, since they had never mentioned where they had gotten the cow. “You are truly a wise rabbi,” they said. “How did you know we got the cow from Minsk?” The rabbi answered sadly, “My wife is from Minsk.

  9. My Mother taught me to read when I was 3 years old (her first mistake). One day I was in the bathroom and noticed one of the cabinet doors was slightly open. I read the box in the cabinet. I then asked my mother why she was keeping napkins in the bathroom. Didn't they belong in the kitchen? Not wanting to burden me with unnecessary facts she told me that those were for special occasions. Now fast forward a few months. It's Thanksgiving Day and my folks are leaving to pick up the pastor and his wife for Thanksgiving Dinner. Mom had assignments for all of us while they were gone. Mine was to set the table. You guessed it! When they returned, the pastor came in first and immediately burst into laughter. Next came his wife who gasped, then began giggling. Next came my father, who roared with laughter. Then came mom, who almost died of emarassment when she saw each place setting on the table with a "special occasion" napkin at each plate, with the fork carefully arranged on top. I had even tucked the little tails in so they didn't hang off the edge. My mother asked me why I used these and of course my response sent the other adults into further fits of laughter. "But Mom, you SAID they were for special occasions!!"
  10. Good Afternoon folks, it’s Friday Funny time again. A lady goes to the bar on a cruise ship and orders a Scotch with two drops of water. As the bartender gives her the drink she says: 'I'm on this cruise to celebrate my 88th birthday and it's today.' The bartender says 'Well, since it's your birthday, I'll buy you a drink. In fact, this one is on me.' As the woman finishes her drink the woman to her right says 'I would like to buy you a drink, too.' The old woman says 'Thank you. Bartender, I want a Scotch with two drops of water.' 'Coming up' says the bartender As she finishes that drink, The man to her left says 'I would like to buy you one, too.' The old woman says 'Thank you. Bartender, I want another Scotch with two drops of water.' 'Coming right up' the bartender says. As he gives her the drink, he says 'Ma'am, I'm dying of curiosity. Why the Scotch with only two drops of water?' The old woman replies ’Sonny, when you're my age, you've learned how to hold your liquor... holding your water, however, is a whole other issue.'
  11. Good Morning folks, it’s Friday Funny time again. Bob Hill and his new wife Betty were vacationing in Europe, as it happens, near Transylvania. They were driving in a rental car along a rather deserted highway. It was late at night and raining very hard with thunder and lightning. Bob could barely see the road in front of the car. Suddenly, the car skids out of control! Bob attempts to control the car but to no avail! The car swerves and smashes into a tree. Moments later, Bob shakes his head to clear the fog. Dazed, he looks over at the passenger seat and sees his wife unconscious, with her head bleeding. Despite the rain and unfamiliar countryside, Bob knows he has to get her medical assistance. Bob carefully picks his wife up and begins trudging down the road. After a short while, he sees a light. He heads towards it, which is coming from a large, old house. He hastily knocks on the door. A minute passes and a small, hunched-back old man opens the door. Bob immediately blurts, "Hello, my name is Bob Hill, and this is my wife Betty. We've been in a terrible car accident, and my wife has been seriously hurt. Can I please use your phone?" "I'm sorry," replied the hunchback, "We don't have a phone. But my master is a doctor, come in, and I will get him!" Bob brings his wife in. An older man comes down the stairs. "I'm afraid my assistant may have misled you. I am not a medical doctor; I am a scientist. However, it is many miles to the nearest clinic, and I have had basic medical training. I will see what I can do. Igor, bring them down to the laboratory." With that, Igor picks up Betty and carries her downstairs, with Bob following closely. Igor places Betty on a table in the lab. Bob collapses from exhaustion and his own injuries, so Igor places Bob on an adjoining table. After a brief examination, Igor's master looks worried. "Things are serious, Igor. Prepare a transfusion." Igor and his master work feverishly, but to no avail, and Bob and Betty Hill both died. The Hills' deaths upset Igor's master greatly. Wearily, he climbs the steps to his conservatory which houses his grand piano. For it is here that he has always found solace. He begins to play, and a stirring, haunting melody fills the house. Meanwhile, Igor is still in the lab tidying up. His eyes catch a movement, and he notices the fingers on Betty's hand twitch, keeping time to the haunting piano music. Stunned, he watches as Bob's arm begins to rise, also marking the beat! He is further amazed as Betty and Bob both sit up straight! Unable to contain himself, he dashes up the stairs to the Conservatory. He bursts in and shouts to his Master, "Master, Master... The Hills are Alive with the Sound of Music…!"
  12. Must be true........ A new report shows that being overweight is not as harmful as is commonly believed, and actually confers some surprising health benefits. Being 3 to 6 Kg overweight could protect people from ailments ranging from Tuberculosis to Alzheimer's disease, research indicates. Those carrying 7 to 12 Kg extra are better able to recover from adverse conditions such as emphysema, pneumonia, and various injuries and infections, states the report. 12 to 18 Kg of flab could help fend off breast, kidney, pancreatic, prostrate, and colon cancer. In general, the report concludes, overweight people are happier, more successful in business, smarter and friendlier. The study was funded by a research grant from: McDonalds, Burger King, Pizza Hut, KFC, Burgerman, Dominos, M&M, Cadbury and Nestle Chocolates.
  13. 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!!!...
  14. 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."

  16. 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."
  17. Around the Campfire This is a forum for general fireside chit chat, fun stuff, jokes or non caravan related topics you might find on the net etc.
  18. 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.
