Holidays!!!!
Posted By: Mallee Boy, 03-04-2009, 06:09 PM

Sorry to do this to all you diligent, hard working and dedicated souls out there, but I'm on holiday in a far flung land.

Me being on holiday and you working has really been bothering me.........so to make you feel better I have put together this little pictorial of the break so far. (which of course I will keep up dated....wouldn't want you to feel left out :ugh



Not wanting you to go thirsty......I had a beer for you too. Nice drop this.
Attachment 29545



and being the sensitive caring character I am, I fully realise that it may be a bit cold for beer in some parts.....so I had a couple of these just so as no-one feels left out. (mind you I can't keep this pace up for too long....couple of weeks should just about do me in )
Attachment 29544



.....and this truly amazing thing happened; there I was just walking down this street, when presto!! this shop appeared, and this really nice bloke asked me in.........yeah, my wife didn't buy it either.

Attachment 29543



and that is just the end of Day 1.

A couple of you can relax a little on your part. My wife seems to have taken on saving the world economy all on her own. Oh well, I really wanted to continue working for the rest of my life anyway.
