Protest Ride in Sydney against the rising costs of CTPs for Motorbikes

There was a roar in Sydney today
as 3000 bikers headed to Parliment house in protest
to the rising costs of CTPs.
See Story Here
Motorbikes lined the streets
and police were prolific as bikers gathered to be heard

Stu was amongst them!!
He headed down yesterday with couple of biker mates
and converged on Parliament House today!!
Something to tell the grandkids......

Views over Gunnedah

Spring in Gunnedah is always so pretty.....
There's not much colour at the moment, but we are starting to see some yellow sneak through...
Gunnedah is surrounded by Canola crops in September/October
they are all the yellow
and it looks superb!!!
These photos are taken from our lookout "Porky"
I love how it looks out over the mountains...
And then on the other side
looking out over the plains....
You can see where all the water was sitting a couple of weeks ago with the flooding..
Its all dead and brown
But its such a pretty little town at the moment..
Lovely and green
Then as the start was dropping i caught this silhouette shot
And in the photo below,
the street we can see is the one that leads to our place...
I love Gunnedah, there is no better place to live!

Brand New (But Old) Car at our place

Well, we have reached the stage in our lives where we are four householders
and four cars at our place
with the arrival of Emelias New (Old) Car...
Stu found it on the internet....
Its so cute
and so suited to Emelia
Its 20 years old
but in really good nick
And no doubt is going to be loved to death...
This is the best thing about the car according to Emelia...
The Doof Doof in the boot!!!
She turns up the music and the whole car rattles..
Its just a little car after all!!

What a spectacular setting for a fun weekend!!!!!
And after a very rainy week
the weather came out in force for us!!
it was glorious!!!
After so many years of drought
the damn is about 50% capacity now
and looks awesome!
Amongst some of the hilarity
was the "Geeks and Nerds" night!!!
I mean, im a pretty big Geek just because i am,
who needs to dress up for that!!!
So with the help of my son
i decided to go as an "Online Gaming Nerd in Character"
I wore a World of Warcraft t shirt
and dressed as one of the WOW Characters
and Elf.
It made for some photos!!!
And lots of laughter!!!
I mean, i dont mind being the dickhead that everyone is laughing at!!! lol
My dear friends
Lindy, Phillipa, Kerry & Jules joined me at the retreat
so we had to have the commemorative photos!!

Its kinda sad to come back to reality after so many laughs and jokes
having your huge delicious meals made for you
and no washing up!!!
There is always so much food at these things!!!!
It was a great weekend!!
Thanks so much Deb Godley for organising this!!
