Ours is a black Great Dane / American Bulldog cross and spends the majority of the day in the same position.
Some days his belly is glowing red....

Don’t know how he does it, 10 minutes in the sun and I’m done, doesn’t matter how cold a day it is.

My oldest boy Felix turned 12 yesterday, and he was stoked with his new Oztent Bunker Pro...

Looks to be a good piece of kit... can’t wait to try it out...

Not sure if it's smile, but certainly suddenly feel old ...

Been mention on the news over the last few days that there's an auction coming up for some of Joh & Flo Bjelke-Petersen's Estate.

Young bloke (pushing 19) watches this last night, then says "Who are these people, & is there any reason at all why we should be interested?"

Well, umm, it's like this - he was Premier of Qld for 20 years ... ::)

Sitting here having lunch,
There is a fire hydrant that the water tankers use for the H/way construction.
A white hi lux with a trailer pulls to fill up the 1000lt plastic cube.
They drive away and they haven't turned off the bottom valve.
Within 200 meters they have l lost half of it.
LOL, here they come back, with an empty tank.
Dumb witts.

Are you searious?
Fairdinkum.
I've made plenty of Fups, and laugh at myself.

You are telling me you have never laughed when someone has had a shocker?
I suppose you never watched Funnest Home Videos, either.

Yep...I've done that! As well as alot of other stupid stuff. Laugh with me or laugh at me, I don't care, so long as you can get a laugh out of it. They say you learn by your mistakes. I challenge that saying. If it was true, I would be a rocket surgeon by now.

the apprentice at the bike shop once forgot that and sheepishly came up to me asking how much oil the bike should hold (3800ml from memory) - he had put 9ltrs in it and it wasnt full yet..
The bike was parked over the drain to the old oil tank still...

Candid Camera organised a Mini, set up with huge tank capacity (maybe over 50 gallons) to drive up to the driveway service petrol browser and asked the lad to "Filler up Mate".
After about 20 gallons, he is looking at the meter, under the car, back to the meter, checking the flow etc with a very puzzled expression of disbelief on his face.

In my youth I had an XB van with 30 gallon capacity in twin tanks that filled through the one filler. Got that ^ a few times.... ;D

Also got...."can you pay for this?".... ;D ;D

and..."this thing must cost you a fortune to run".... ::) ::)
