This definitely needs some explanation. Chavs posited in the Feedback Forum today that youth organizations might be the start of the slippery slope to badge tart-dom on Fun Trivia.



My wife will not let me throw this shirt away. laugh And yes, the next year (with a new shirt size) I got the lion badge and assorted arrowheads!

I have to say that there isn't a thing on the planet that "inspires" me at the moment, but sheesh, go with it. We're at a loss here without your fine direction Ren : )

I've just written a quiz on suppositories if anyone wants me to find a photo I can take? Maybe not...

The statue by the Church of the Good Shepherd in Tekapo dedicated to the working dogs of the MacKenzie Country, the most famous of which was the sheep dog 'Friday' belonging to the Scottish shepherd turned sheep rustler James McKenzie. He stole sheep near Timaru and drove them inland, eventually being caught by the authorities. Legend has it his dog continued to drive the sheep after James MacKenzie was caught despite not being under his control before finally being stopped.

To go left or to go right? A dilemma while wandering through the old town area of Wetzler in Germany.

Love the Friday story, Howie smile

A flat tyre. A really flat tyre. It's a newer one ... I don't think you'd get an older one to go at right angles like that smirk

Lovely to see him so fit! (I was getting withdrawal symptoms!)
For some of us this is the end of August and it is time to start the September threads.
This one will not close for a while. Thanks for all your great pics this month.

Hot Water Beach on the Coromandel Peninsula. Around low tide you can dig in the sand and relax in thermal pools of hot water bubbling up from vast underground pools deep within the earth.

Jill, Chip's looking like he can't wait to start work/play! Looking at your (very) flat tyre, how do you jack it up? I'd imagine it's a pretty difficult task to change, especially if the ground is not hard-packed.

There's an inn near to the fort which dates back to Tudor times. It's possible that the Pilgrims
stayed there before setting sail on the Mayflower (Or it may not have been an inn then. Who
knows?)

You need some good solid planks under the rippers of the grader and it sort of lifts itself up .. and swearing. Apparently you need to swear a lot too. wink

Some mud cracking

Swearing always helps in these instances... or so they say :-)
