TOYOTA RECOVERY VEHICLE



No no no not the grader....not the drot but the NISSAN FROGFACE..... thats how he got out of the bog!!!!! I could be locked up over this statement.....he he but you did ask




Had the base for an arena cleared with the drot and grader and nearly broke my heart clearing one beautiful bloodwood...the rest had damage from a wind storm or the drought and could live with that....

Hi Elizabeth,

Wow that Nissan makes my Holden look pretty puny and weak. I think that I'll go to the gym to build up my confidence......hehehehehe.

I guess that I'll have to make myself feel better about having a smaller petrol bill at the end of the week.....LOL.

Cheers

Rudy

Rudy,
I know it is not appropriate to have such a huge vehicle but I thought long and hard and the alternative was a truck, a four wheel drive, and a runaround so it does the job of the three. I have had it for five years and is worked as the ks are very high. Here I go defending my choices. in this case is the least pollution as steps into the breach and does the work of a truck. Access to my property is four wheel drive or horse back so in my case is not for show and the dirt is genuine. You are so right about the fuel bills but counterbalances having three vehicles to maintain and register. I do feel guilty sometimes on the open highway....but I do have and allow thousands of trees to counterbalance my footprint. As you can see do protest too much...a sign of guilt....but should not be...is a dream to drive I must say and oh so comfortable...is the only luxury (er er and this computer that my sons purchased for me) in my life as do live rather basic...when it is cold or hot I use wool or a shady spot....he he...I feel uncomfortable in air conditioning or heated buildings and love the rugged up feeling in winter.......Kind regards, Elizabeth

Hi Elizabeth,

I promise that I wasn't having a go at you from an environmental perspective. Being retired I tend to really watch the dollars and as I don't have to tow things or require 4WD access to my place, a car does just fine.

Your circumstances are entirely different to mine and I am sure that you need that Nissan. I'm in fact delighted that you have something that gives you a treat in life as I think that you richly deserve it. We're lucky that your sons bought you a computer so that we can share your lovely photo's and wonderful spirit.

Keep up the rescues.....hehehehehe

Cheers

Rudy

Hi Rudy,
I think you are far too urbane to be having a go at me just my guilt...I tend to beat myself up somewhat...and argue with myself from daylight until dark....imagine how insane I get as I get older........! ! !
Cheers Elizabeth

Hi lizzie, I thought you might be interested in my other blog site.
PS You live up Barry Nong's neck of the woods. I see you are into horses - is problem over?
PS Love your graphic 'musical notes' I would like them. :3

Hi virgolynne,
The musical notes you can get from....duh duh somewhere.....I am sooooo tired and am so dumb when am tired...will find it again later and let you know...another falling graphic was flying pink pigs...which tickled my fancy. I will find it and post it as is such fun. I have just finished work and am driving a friend to Harvey Bay tomorrow and intend to leave at 2 am which should get me in Harvey Bay right in time for breakfast. I will have a couple of hours sleep I am very lucky as can get going again after a few hours sleep...bright eyed and bushy tailed....Thanks for visiting and will get over and have a good look at your site when I return from the Bay...Oh yes you mentioned Nong I live in the mountains and he lives on the coast waiting for a tusami......Interestingly enough I saw a photograph of Les Quinn Bridge over Whalan Creek....poetic huh I think the name of the creek was incorrectly spelt... The horse flu seems to be under control a fair bit of paper work still to move the animals but at least can move them
.Kind regards, Elizabeth
