    As long as I`m allowed on a Woolies dock, she`s apples.

    PS: So, rig boots aren`t allowed then?

    Interesting thing happened this morning.
    I was driving my Prado on Ipswich motorway and a yellow Toyota FJ Cruiser came up close behind me at reasonable speed so i moved over one lane to the left.

    Lights, sirens and over we go!!! :huh

    WTF. I was only speeding a little bit...........i think!!

    Licence please sir...."yep sure". Where are you going sir......"netball to watch my daughters play" Your licence is due for renewal sir....."oops. :deal I do have a letter at home that mentions that but not too much spare time of late. My bad"

    Hands me back the licence and tells me to carefully get out of the car.....not looking so good here i think! :cry
    Come around to the back of the vehicle sir......(Fuck me! i'm thinking)

    Turns out that a palm frond had fallen onto my roof rack during the night and was trailing out behind the vehicle at highway speeds.

    He asked me to put it in the car, or to tie it to the rack...."sure thing!"

    Have a nice day, he said. Then he mentioned that he'd stay behind me so i don't get run over whilst doing my chores.

    Off we went...........................:lol3

    Watch out for the yellow cruiser!
