Going through the TCB trip pics  and  recalled this one .Not because of someones troubles as such ..  Thinking O'l  mate must have  some troubles, as he is living in this camper by the side of the road, has a standard car and is only there early and late most days as far as we could tell, so possibly has a job ....
The bit that made me smile was, He's possibly in the Shit  with someone or  thing and he's set up camp  just near a Sewerage plant ..
Guess he figures he's already in the Shit he may as well live near it .

Other places near there away from the road side that would be a more suitable camp spot ..
Hope it all works out for him eitherway, its a wonder it hasnt been moved on by the biue,  stolen or wrecked .

Coincidence  !!   Had a conversation with a co worker the other day about how the Coastline as we know it today used to be 20 > 40 klm further out to sea, Give or take some would have been more . 10's of thousands of years ago ..
 ;D ;D Low and behold Surfing totaly unrelated stuff on the Tube [ WW2 Aircraft ] this  showed up in the side menu . Quite interesting .
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pg0Z3LappEM  Instead of living 2 > 3  klm from the beach,,    25000 years ago I'd be up to 40 klm inland ..
Not to mention the Holidays we wouldnt be having on ....Eerrrrr  Fraser flats !!   ;D ;D [ Fraser Island ]..
Have a wonder  about where and how far inland your  current favourite coastal, Holiday or home place might be   ;D ;D

The simple pleasure of having a haircut. I know have an appreciation of how sheep feel after a clip. I also lost 5kg.

Since the arrival of covid, I've had two haircuts, both done by my wife. The first after we had drunk a bottle of wine between us. It was surprisingly good considering it was the first time she had cut anybody's hair. Good enough for me to let her do it again a couple of weeks ago.

I've had 2 cuts during COVID.  I used to do my own years ago and couldn't find the clippers.  The wife said she must have thrown them out. 
So I got a cheap set of Aldi clippers.  First hair no probs.
2nd hair, number 2 comb.  On the first 2 passes no probs, but on the 3rd pass the comb fell off and left me with a streak of stubble. With no choice left I took it all down to a 5 o'clock shadow.
Two weeks later and I'm proof, the saying the difference between a good and bad haircut is a couple of weeks.

With all the crap and water out of it now, it was time to clean out my crack this morning ready for some repairs.

Poked, prodded, scrapped and stabbed at it until my crack was clean as a whistle.
Gave it a quick blow and I have to say..... I have the cleanest crack around.   :cup:

So, tomorrow, i'll chase up some concrete crack repair stuff to start resealing that ol swimming pool. ;D

So did you get your crack sealed up in time for the pool to be refilled for free ???

Phil Gould must still be wondering how that happened, given the Panthers first half dominance......
