SO THAT’S WHY THAT HAPPENS TO ME
Had the bonnet up on my car at the grandkids house yesterday.
When one of there hipster mate’s came over and said
“So that’s what’s under there”?
There is truly no hope for this generation
I gave my daughter’s boy friends hell
I even answered the door once with my shot g-n in one hand and a dead rabbit in the other.
I loved the look on there faces
I miss those days
Funny. My daughter was sitting in the room with her boyfriend. I had just got home from Belmont and was cleaning the P9 Springfied I had been using.
I got up and was walking to put it away when her boyfriend appeared around the door just as I hit the slide release
Never saw that one again
How time flys 20 years ago
Two 1981short wheel base Nissan patrols
Both 3.3 ltr diesel
Both 24 volt
Both had twin long range tanks 160ltr
Both hadTwin battery set ups
Both had big winches
Both had twin Recaro front seats
Green one had a snorkel set up
Both had 2inch lift
Both had tough dog suspension
Well I bought them at a government auction in the northern territory.
All that was standard fitment for the Rangers that patrolled the outback.
Total cost was around $5000
That’s for both vehicles,shipping,and rego in qld
Best diesel motor ever
I so wish I could find a other one but there rare as hens teeth now .
Did see one come up last year for sale in mint con 22k
Back in my primary school days from Mr Martin’s nearby shop a meat pie with sauce was fifty cents and you’d get two foil wrapped “ZAC” chocolate biscuits for twenty cents. As for a chocolate “Big M” that was about a decade away!
I don’t know, You kids don’t even know you’re born!
Please Note; I mean absolutely no disrespect to you or your post. As a matter of fact it was seeing that brown paper bag image that unlocked the memories for me!
That’s cool but that not my name on bag I am 62years old
I remember getting a big bag full of lollies for three pence
Pies at school were 25c
Sunny boys 2c
5 cobbers for 1c same as freckles
If some body gave me a 2 dollar note I was rich
I’m the same age, what a bloody good year was '59!
OMG! I had forgotten about sunny boys! Wasn’t there some sort of competition to get a fee one…was it a ticket inside or something?
Yep when you finish them you looked on the inside for the label that said free.
Funny that we mention them just finished shopping this morning and saw them for sale in Coles $2each
That it! The writing in the silver lining!
2 bucks each? Gawd, we could have bought 20 of them
Yeah, 60 here… we used to walk around looking at the ground for 1 and 2 cent pieces… 5 cents was like winning lotto… you could go to the shop and pick 4 lollies out of various jars for a cent… from a greasy old man with a long pair of tongs and little white bags
That was in the days before there was anything wrong with being a greasy old man with a long pair of tongs and little white bags of lollies
My wife just sent me this to reaffirm her reason for not dusting
BUT yet her bikes are meticulously polished
House work is not high on her priority list
It is just very very sad how entitled the youngsters of today feel. I am a Registered Nurse and have been doing this job for nearly 40 years. It is amazing how many new nurses I see that don’t want to or can’t stomach the basics of this job. They (for some weird reason) all want to start at the top. It is sad and quite scary who will be looking after us in our great old age…
My wife is a retired RN/agecare worker she was saying the same thing before she retired.
They had to outsource overseas agecare workers from India.
Because the ones here don’t want to care for the elderly it’s not glamorous enough for them
