So as the title states, 'Bored'. This is padding and nothing more than time wasting to help offset the boredom. Tell us where you are and if you like what you're up too or not up too.

I'll start, sitting in the waiting room at Llewellyn Toyota waiting for the Camry to be serviced. Yes, i do own a Toyota and i quite like it. So much easier to drive than the Patrol but like all Toyotas the Patrol goes so much further.

As we head into another calendar year, Let us not forget what it means to be growing older, it is a privilege not everyone gets Idea


You know ... time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the passing years. It seems just yesterday that I was young, just married and embarking on my new life with my mate. Yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all the years went. I know that I lived them all. I have glimpses of how it was back then and of all my hopes and dreams.

But, here it is... the back nine of my life and it catches me by surprise...How did I get here so fast? Where did the years go and where did my youth go?

I remember well seeing older people through the years and thinking that those older people were years away from me and that I was only on the first hole and the back nine was so far off that I could not fathom it or imagine fully what it would be like.

But, here it is...my friends are retired and getting grey...they move slower and I see an older person now. Some are in better and some worse shape than me...but, I see the great change....Not like the ones that I remember who were young and vibrant...but, like me, their age is beginning to show and we are now those older folks that we used to see and never thought we'd become.

Each day now, I find that just getting a shower is a real target for the day! And taking a nap is not a treat anymore... it's mandatory! Cause if I don't on my own free will... I just fall asleep where I sit!

And so...now I enter into this new season of my life unprepared for all the aches and pains and the loss of strength and ability to go and do things that I wish I had done but never did!! But, at least I know, that though I’m on the back nine, and I'm not sure how long it will last...this I know, that when it's over on this earth...it's over. A new adventure will begin! Yes, I have regrets. There are things I wish I hadn't done...things I should have done, but indeed, there are many things I'm happy to have done. It's all in a lifetime.

So, if you're not on the back nine yet...let me remind you, that it will be here faster than you think. So, whatever you would like to accomplish in your life please do it quickly! Don't put things off too long!! Life goes by quickly. So, do what you can today, as you can never be sure whether you’re on the back nine or not!

You have no promise that you will see all the seasons of your life....so, live for today and say all the things that you want your loved ones to remember...and hope that they appreciate and love you for all the things that you have done for them in all the years past!!

"Life" is a gift to you.  The way you live your life is your gift to those who come after. Make it a fantastic one. LIVE IT WELL! ENJOY TODAY! DO SOMETHING FUN! BE HAPPY ! HAVE A GREAT DAY Remember "It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver. LIVE HAPPY IN 2016!


  • Your kids are becoming you......but your grandchildren are perfect! Angel
  • Going out is good.. Coming home is better! Wink
  • You forget names.... But it's OK because some people forgot they even knew you!!! hahahahaha Who was that?
  • You realize you're never going to be really good at anything like golf. Big Grin but who cares
  • The things you used to care to do, you aren't as interested in anymore, but you really don't care that you aren't as interested.
  • You sleep better on a lounge chair with the TV 'ON' than in bed. It's called "pre-sleep". Sleepy
  • You miss the days when everything worked with just an "ON" and "OFF" switch..  Exclamation
  • You tend to use more 4 letter words ... "what?"..."when?"... Howw?  Noww! NOOO? OHNO? ? Blush
  • You notice everything they sell in stores is "sleeveless" and just doesn't fit?!!! Dodgy
  • What used to be cute freckles are now humungus liver spots. Sad
  • Everybody whispers around you? why?. Huh
  • You have 3 sizes of clothes in your closet.... 2 of which you will never wear.
  • Laugh long and loud at everything in your life including yourself Big Grin
  • Tell everyone you care about that you love them, so they don't  have to guess Heart
  • Make everyone laugh with your fantastic jokes Big Grin and leave the Grumpy old bastard Angry outside
But Old is good in some things: Old Songs, Old movies, and best of all,OLD FRIENDS!! Cool

Stay well, "OLD FRIEND!" Send this on to other "Old Friends!" and let them laugh in AGREEMENT!!! It's Not What You Gather, But What You Scatter That Tells What Kind Of Life You Have Lived. Tongue

Over the past month we have been attracting a few spam accounts and some have been posting material we don't want on this forum!

I thank our moderators for finding these accounts and taking the appropriate actions to block the accounts,
If you notice activity not aligned with out charter please ban the user or send admin an email with the user id and activity information.

I have changed several of the forum account creation details and how posts are displayed to users, some of your information is now available to club members and moderators but should not be available to the general public, I have changed the way these things are displayed as we the club members need to be able to see if a user is valid or a Spam account.
Typically spam accounts do not put correct details for Name, 4WD and Location.

As part of the work today I have re-arranged many of the forum entries so if you cannot find it - look elsewhere!
Also some of you have been posting in areas reserved for general information about the club - please check the forum details for each area before you post!
These areas have general restrictions that prevent normal users from posting but if you are a club admin or board member you will often be able to edit or add posts..
