Yeah, not wrong about the meals, could munch through mine alright, but the Mrs. & kids would only do a portion of theirs, don't like seeing waste :roll: so by the time you got through their left overs it was forever a struggle to move :lol: recon put on a good 5kg! :o

I had a high blood sugar and headaches when I got back, it took a couple of weeks to get back to normal.

G'day all, haven't been on here for a little while....sadly it doesn't take long to catch up on unread posts nowdays :( ....

Not often Chubby gets to reside in the home garage...

...You might have guessed, the Mrs is away at the moment... :lol:

Just wondering who's the best reference for buggy bits nowdays? Is Paul and Downsouth still doing the bits and pieces for conversions etc? Have heard a guy I know locally has recently sourced a rego'd buggy ex Mainland, (haven't seen it yet, don't even know what it is, only know its air cooled) when I do catch up with him, would like to help him out getting contacts etc. Pud

The kids have been mowing the lawn on their own now for the last couple of years

Thought it's about time to ramp it up a bit, chocked 'em up on a bean bag so they could reach the pedals & away they went! :D

:D Sweet as mate. My kids love driving mine. Bean bag is a great idea - I have a an old chair cushion to move them forward in the seat.

That is great. Always good for kids to leave to drive as early as possible. I need a bigger back yard than what I have though! :-)
