Strange things people have in their gardens/front yards
« on: August 01, 2012, 07:21:13 AM »

Still on an extended holiday/vacation that has included hiking and mountain biking out and about with my camera.

I recon us brits could launch our own Niku expedition, sure the queen as the head of state for Kiribati won't mind.  I've found us a ship, submersable and if we stock up on Pot Noodles and Carling and use our navigational lessons from Gary then we can locate the wire and prove once and for all that Richie and Jeff have found the electra  ;D

I would replace 'Electra' with 'aircraft wreckage', at this stage anyway Chris. But.....

You have to go a long way to beat the artistic and aesthetic way the Brits lovingly tender and nurture mother nature to produce front gardens that win awards...

Not yet Woody. It's been standing eight years though but, someone has taken that long to decide it is 'offensive'

Your right Bill, need someone to boil the water for the pot noodles and clean the diving bells windows  ;D

I just checked with my house servant to see if she may be available.  Actually she's kinda old - real old.  She and her "guy" (I think they've shacked up for about 75 years), Fred, are kinda slow too.  Anyway I'll inquire of Amelia her interest.  okay?

If you're a Brit, you don't write with a Brit accent.  How come?

Richie mentioned that in the ROV a while back Bill, he thought I was American. Multi-cultural home and work life is the likely cause Bill. Wife from SE Asia and work in same areas of interest as USA, defence, oil and certain countries ;)
