Gudday all

Have just heard the sad news about Bruce (thanks Rod). Our deepest sympathies to Pam and the family.

He was and still is a great mentor to me. Top bloke Bruce.

Gudday :hmm:

Seems I buggered up last month a bit with the Rod rebuild :o(high priority thing at the moment fellas), so with some trepidation, I'll attempt ta bloody give Feb a go!:eek:

Me widest tacker is the 18mm end of the DAL 18-55 kit, so that should do the job ... well it'll bloody have to!:confused:

But, subject matter might get a tad monotonous, as every available (read cool under bloody 40 degrees) night will be spent on the rod.:cool:

So, humble apologies for January:o, move on old china!;)

They reckon that thu time hazcome,
ta lay yah cards face down,
an' stand for whatyahold in hand,
or look an bloody clown!

From gentle mines-trations,
a-wispered from the west,
I ventured back ta join yas,
ta do me bloody best.

The internet did hold me,
at bay for quite a while,
we'd lost the rotten bugger,
and that did make me smile..

until in my frustrations,
occasionally I went,
to were until quite recent like,
some time I often spent.

I did try to get back on,
but to my own chagrin
Achilles never knew the rub,
I'd let a trojan in!

so many dollars later,
the interent is back
and New Year all awaits us,
an' I'll be bloody back.

Strewth...away for a few days and everything bloody happens!:eek:

Well the news about Bruce is a bottler:cool: (thanks Rod), and Wolfie...well someone will want yah one day:hmm:! Bigted, that's mysterious, all the best Stevi and remember the nurses! They need care too cobber!;)

As for this thing curing LBA is appears it's a ruddy failure...but I knew that anyway!:lol:

Been hard to get back into the flow, posting late and not commenting much...sorry fellas:o. Especially to those near and far from the early challenges, I feel that you must feel a tad hurt?:(:o

So it's nearly here again, another Christmas, some are freezin', and some are boilin', and some are not sure what's goin' on!

All the best everyone, Merry Christmas;):cool:. Politically correct...I don't care!:eek:

:(Like Sandy said...who knows...I've cracked a couple. Seems like every now and then a shot from the heart seems to pull a chord somewhere in Flikr. Maybe the time and effort, maybe the moment...who knows?

Still haven't made the bloody Pentax Premier Premium Bestest thingy though.....sigh:mad:.....i'll keep trying!

Back with a former sheila from a previous challenge, the Vivitar 28-85mm f3.5-4.5 macro:eek::cool:. Never thought of it in the bucket sense before:confused:, so I'll give it a floggin' for a month.

Few old faces I see in the lineup, but one good mate not here....he'll be watchin' I'm bloody sure. Hang in there old china!;):rolleyes:

Gudday all!

Howtheyhangin'? Good to see so many bods still in the bizzo...me I've definitely got a case of the deebloodytees! Haven't taken a shot in weeks!

Had a few close calls with the burny stuff (close but far enough for moderate discomfort), had to buy in water and fix the bore pump ($4G out the window) but otherwise we're all well.

Still luv yaz orl!

Well this is a bloody great month eh!

People getting pandemonium (get well soon fellas), and me vanished in the ether! Somewhere in space..the final frontier!

I'm thinking this month is a no go...have taken some shots yet to be posted...but!

Ran out of water, so $400 later might get by, fix the bore bore pump 85m down, another $3600, hmmmmm......halfway to a decent camera really!

Sorry cobbers, but this month is a disaster..will do what I can when I can, but my poker hand at the moment means, time to fold.

And the fires so far have been north, east and south of us, not by much...but thankfully enough!

P.S. Elvis came by yesterday, and dropped heaps of water on a fire 2km south of the sawmill, very impressive, but bugger me, no camera. (Read humungous helicopter that picks up 9000 litres [9 tonne] in one hit and dumps!)






Luv yas all...and good health.

Gudday all...how yah bloody goin?

Been a tad (tad) busy last few days, what' with runnilowon water, shiftin' it 'round, and they reckon there's a "froot loop" around that keeps lightin' bloody fires!

There's a tanker load (3000 Gallons) of housewater coming Friday, I've still my reserve 5000 gallons for the CFA (hope they don't need it!), and am madly searcing for a bore pump replacement. That's $3G well spent at the moment I reckon!

Good to hear that the rest of us OZ types are OK at present, but it does seem that the SHHTF! This is late Feb type conditions, and the hot bit is yet to come.

The weather mob has just announced the inception of a new colour code for temperature charts...purple - 50-54C!

You've godda be bloodyjokin'mate!

@ Wired.....Hmm!! You're a cold one eh!

@ Mar...Again!...Take care darling!

Well bugger me!

More silly galahs than ya can poke a stick at...if ya had the energy! (That many interested eh?)

Another challenge eh? Nearly opted for the 35mm Tak I cleaned up a few days (taking over several months) ago, but I reckon after one or two months at the wider end, I might need a change.

So....REPRISE!

The Sigma 28-80 Macro I first used way back in September 2010, the first Single challenge. I've learned a bit since then, from all the jibber jabber from you bods (read: excellent feedback and constructive help), and reckon itz bloody bonzer ta join you bunch of drongos for another month (read: couldn't be happier to participate again!)

Happy New Year all...have a safe one...see yah tamorrah!
