I have just received the following email from the son of our blogger friend, the Paradise Driver, Wil Kyle who passed away last year…………….
“This is what it looked like when I scattered my fathers ashes on top of Haleaka, one if his favourite places on the island of Maui”
So what do reckon these guys are thinking given that all they see is a lot of water, a lone surfer and a big ship? Maybe those waves are just too monstrous to handle.
June in Florida put me onto another good blogger with very interesting articles worth following. One of his posts features a very interesting sight he captured on a a recent trip through Texas.
I want you to click on a link to Google Maps shortly and you will firstly see an overhead shot along US 90 in Texas and then the street view along a very lonely stretch of highway. Then turn the view to the left and check out a sight for sore eyes. Click HERE now.
You can get the story HERE. Methinks the $80k could have feed a few homeless people for a few days but then I’m a cretin when it comes to art.
MP and I travelled large chunks of similar terrain in New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and Utah and we loved the desolation of America’s version of the Never,Never.
A serious burglary occurred recently and a couple of lads decided to give chase and they managed to apprehend the miscreant.
They bound his hands and chained him up for good measure before calling the cops but they overdid it a bit when one of them suggested waterboarding for good measure.
Not a pretty sight.
I have a feeling that he won’t be doing that in a hurry for awhile.
Next time you start whinging about being in cattle class on a plane, or moaning on about the lousy/non-existent meal service, have a thought for the poor sods who had to rely on African shipping services for their transport to the USA prior to 1865.
Man’s inhumanity to man.
This cartoon appeals because when I went to make a booking for a haircut the other day, the lass wrote my name down as “Wedge”.
Another cyclist run down and killed in Geelong today. A very common occurrence and it will continue while you have morons like this on the roads.
A common argument by the Bogans is that bike riders don’t pay car registration hence they don’t contribute to the road network. The insinuation is that they shouldn’t be on the roads to get in the way of the mindless Neanderthals like Emma Way. Of course their feeble brains forget that nearly all bike riders are car owners too.
We stay off the bitumen as much as possible and yearn for roads like this.
