    And yet, reading yours and all the other recent contributions, we all survived, and still able to type on a keyboard.

    Were we just a more resilient and cluey bunch that the current crop, or has the “nanny state” of rules and regulations just taken over?

    The 2020 year of incessant washing hands and disinfectant wipes concerns me. The kids are no longer eating dirt, to build up the gut antibodies, that toughen them up and protect them from illness in the future.

    Well, that’s the way it is now days, so what will be, will be, I guess.

    Letterboxes used to be common victims.
    Some of the local hoons decided that demolishing my wheelie bin and totalling the letterbox was good sport. ( Not unusual in country areas)
    After a couple of events I decided to change the terms of play.

    1 metre x 600mm hole, concrete with well aged Ironbark 4x4 post to about 600 above ground with a light stick holding letterbox.

    Unfortunately no takers yet. ;)

    I'm sure Rick will post ;)

    Nothing spectacular, which is deliberate.
    But right height to trash an engine.

    In discussion with cafe we frequent owner and asked if he remembered the Honda Advertisement where the question of Big, RED & ?????? is asked followed by the phrase ..... if you remember it then I need not mention it.

    Anywho he'd never heard it :eek: .... ok so he's about 2.5 decades younger than me :cool:

    Walking back through the dunes this morning, post surf, and I noticed seed pods on long grass that we used to throw at each other in primary school......they flew like darts and stuck into anything woollen, or your hair....:rolleyes:
    Anyone else play that game ?
    Cheers,

    We had Rye Grass that we did that with. Also a long stemmed weed with a clump at the end(it was it's flower head.), you'd twist the stem up and over in a loop. When you pull back the head shot off. Nature's own toy gun for kids! :p
