    G'day, all. bit late getting here as I had a trip to the hospital in the early hours of this AM. Developed an exscreechyating [worse than excruciating] pain in my ear which kept me up all night. DD took me to the ED at 5 AM and I got various meds to beat it.:nurse: The nurses were great and made a bit of a fuss when they realised what I did in the bush. Should be right now---us old cowboys are tough, except when it hurts, then we want our mums;) Hope Irene spares you all and you stay safe:) Someone here who would like to say g'day. Hello. This is Annette ( Dad calls me Annie lol). I just wanted to thankyou all for your well wishes and prayers and to let you know that they must have worked. I still have trouble speaking but it is coming along slowly. Actually it is hysterical when we go out together as Dad is as deaf as a post and I can't talk properly. We manage but people must think we are a comedy duo sometimes.:D

    Good Morning 8/24/11

    Poi, don't tell an Ambulance Officer you were falling asleep at the wheel or anyone else for that matter. That is so scary. Please take care. Michael

    Good Morning 8/24/11

    Hiya, Brookee. Just the 2 of us but the rest will follow. Hope things improve for you soon. I am in Perth visiting Annie and helping her out a bit. It can be rather funny in an odd sort of way---I am deaf and she is having a lot of trouble conversing. So, get a hearing aid speak up etc. She goes back to the dr in a week so hopefully something will eventuate for her. Took her out to lunch and bought her some clothes so that perked her up. Trust all have a good day Michael

    Three words to describe yourself

    Ratbag---An Aussie term for someone who steps outside the square, who can be a bit eccentric, and can be somewhat of a larrikin or a hard case in a good way.
  8. Oh Poi. Even with my vivid imagination I just know you meant STUCK.

    Can you drive a stick shift?

    I actually learned to drive in a 36 Ford truck with 4 thru the boards. The truck wore out and I got passed on to a collector!!!!! That old truck would cross sandy river beds that bogged a Landrover.

    Random Thoughts

    Random pondering---who put my glasses on my face??? No wonder I couldn't find the darn things.

    Can you drive a stick shift?

    Yep, 18 speed [gears] in various road trains. A road train is an Aussie thing----prime mover [tractor] such as a Kenworth with 600 hp pulling 3 x 46 foot trailers. They are common on long haul roads here. In the big mines, the trucks are twin engine pulling 7 trailers grossing 700 tons.

    Best driving songs...

    I'm 65 and Lady Gaga is good to go for me. If you want noise while driving, she has it. Meatloaf, too. For a bit of classic, has anyone listened to Jane Rutter playing the flute?? Brilliant.

    Nurses! I need you to assess a CAR!

    In the 20 odd years I have lived on the side of the highway, Toyota stands out as the most unlikely to break down. Most reliable. For my first car, I would buy a good used one. One a friend [mechanic] could look at. Check the cars history. One owner? Been kept in a garage? Does it have a service history? Some months ago, I bought an old Mercedes which had only one owner and had been serviced and garaged all its life. Great car and only cost me $4000. I've driven thousands of miles in this car---trouble free. GOOD LUCK!!!

    Amy Winehouse dead

    I also am not surprised by Amy's death but I am dreadfully saddened. She had talent. Not my sort of music but surely she appealed to a lot of folks. We each go our own way in life and peer pressure plays a big part in how we develop. I lost my daughter Rosemary to drugs aged 22 and it was awful. But now I am getting on with it, realising that I did not kill her. Life is a bit more peaceful now. Still, I fear for all these young people in the spotlight who are so susceptible to the perils of drug and alcohol. Michael Peace to everyone who has a child in turmoil.:heartbeat
