This is a bit like your dramas, it's one thing after another, I reckon she has got a pretty tough twelve months coming up, this toe, brain surgery and a total knee replacement.
I was staggered today, Indian nurse comes into the room, first words out of her mouth, why are you so fidgety, wife replies I have Parkinsons, nurse says well you need to hold still I want to take your blood pressure!
I reply, step in the hall please we need to have a chat, I had to explain the wife's disabilities to her, no empathy at all.
Are you rid of your carry around buddy yet?

My dear Ol mum went through the same as you, all good now. Mum used to carry hers around in a baby sling like a jokey. Fingers crossed for you, all the best.

A leisurely Sunday drive to Red land Bay to pick up the first bits of the new X-Over build . For $50 the pair,  these 80 series arms were a bargain  ;D

That's an awesome scene from the movie, love the music. We have a place down this way, actually a couple of places, that sound like you're talking about. Where we camped up the Karuah River afew years back, we were once accosted  by a weird little guy who arrived in an old fibreglass runabout, with his albino mate. They hung around for a while, waiting for a free beer (it was actually the son-in-laws bucks do), and when it was suggested that maybe they should go about what they were doing before they arrived, he got a bit stroppy. It wasn't so much the 10" Bowie knife hanging from his belt, straight down the middle in front of him that concerned me, but his threat of returning with his mates with shotguns. that was a worry... LOL . Luckily (for them and us) they didn't show. There's another place, Marsh Road, which as the name suggests, runs along a swamp, and is only a few inches above the water at high tide. There are a few houses amongst the trees, in the mud, where we reckon "Shy People" live...
....soooooooeeeeeee........
4.2L TD Toyota Troopy, (Clarke's Country Camper Trailer, softfloor.) sold it and bought a Avan Ray small poptop caravan. I miss being able to acces the little tracks off into the scrub.

Friends of ours went there a few weeks back, during the Comm games, the place was near deserted so they hit every ride one after other virtualy no line ups, It got a little too much for a couple of them though, Theyd had a couple of BIG  nights before they went there ..  ;D

It’s a great ride.  Have you done the Arkum Ayslum ride with the VR headsets? If not, give it a go, it totally transforms the ride. The way the physical movement matches what you see in the headset is unbelievable.

Didn’t try the headsets last time. Will give it a try if we get back there before the annual pass runs out in a couple of months.

They where still building the DC rivals last time we were there and this trip was really only to give it a red hot go.
Well, that and make the kids finally get brave enough to do Green Lantern, lucky for the little chickens the Green Lantern and Arkum Ayslum where offline today.

It’s only been the last 6 months or so that my son has been game to try all the rides.  The 13yo daughter on the other hand is still a bit scared.  She’s been on the Green Lantern and it was an absolute crack up sitting next to her. To her credit she went on it twice more that day but I can’t get her on the DC Rivals  coaster yet.

LOL.. but the comments are gold!

Quote
The restaurants were given a score out of 100 based on six factors, including policies on marketing to children, disclosure of nutritional information on menus and online, plans to reduce "nutrients of concern" such as sugar and saturated fat, and a commitment to health in corporate strategy.

Subway topped the list with 48/100, with researchers suggesting it could do better by phasing out free soft drink refills. Domino's Pizza was the bottom of the pack with just 3/100, scoring zero in each category except for nutrition labelling and transparency in its corporate relationships.

Weak as water disgrace of an Australian Nick Kyrgios pulled out of the French Open on Sunday after failing to shake off a persistent case of pretentiousness.

The next guy in line had already started playing at another event in another country, so the third guy in line Marco Trungelliti gets the call up. Only trouble is Marco has already left Paris and is now having a break with his family in Barcelona, he has like 15 hours to get to Paris and play in the next round.

All flights are booked out, so Marco, his brother, mother and grandmother all cram into a little hire car and drive across the countries to Paris.

1,000km and 10hrs driving later Marco jumps out of the hire car and runs out on court just in time to wipe the floor with the other disgrace of an Australian Bernard “I count my millions” Tomic.

It’s a said day for Australian tennis when our ‘best’ men’s player getting beaten by a guy that’s literally just driven himself 1000km to the match makes me smile.
But if that pompous brat is going to get hammered by anyone, it should be a guy that’s been crammed into a hire car with his grandma for the 10 hours leading up to the tournament.
Who needs proper preparation when your playing against piss weak Tomic..??? ;D

I think you are being a bit harsh on Bernard Tomic and Nick Kyrgios.
They are our future mega stars in the World Stage of Sports and forsake private lives in giving their all in the pursuit of fulfilling the typical Australian's love of domination in sports, and....... hang on, did you say Tomic and Kyrgios? Those two ass wipes? I misread what you wrote and thought you meant real sportsman. They two tossers can just Phar Koff, and any day they get the crap beat out of them is a good day as far as I'm concerned.
