Where's your...?



Giggles amongst the rain drops!

Had to go to Bligh Street today, so I opted for 'brolly-walking' primarily because it was way too humid to wear my Danish mac & 'Carnaby Street' hat (usual 'tried & true' bicycle raingear of choice).

Notwithstanding being on foot, 'street communication' was still available!!!!

Above the swooshy wet Redfern traffic noise, someone wanted to know:

'Where's your bike?'

- I burst out laughing, and they thought they were pretty funny too!!!!

I ♥ Sydney!!!

'Brinks' of global importance

Whilst we play 'julesie-kevie-i-dunno', beyond our cosy borders the stakes are much higher.

♫ No, no they can't take that away from me ♫



Nope; he doesn't belong to me - just dropping by to cheer me up!

...& neither can 'they' take any kitchen or bedroom furniture nor 'tools of the trade'

Sigh...I suppose what 'they' can take will be revealed all too soon

They're Coming to Take Me (stuff) Away - Ha-Haaa

I feel like I'm hurtling into a tunnel...


...as the next little verse of my sorry 'saga' continues


...my property is about to be removed because of bicycle helmet law


$$$ What is wrong with my government?

$$$ Why are we forced to wear bicycle helmets?

$$$ What good has it done us?

$$$ How hard is it to mentally compute the 'too-much-energy-in' factor versus the 'too-little-energy-out' factor?

$$$ Why do we kow-tow to the Oil lobby?

$$$ When will we refuse to vote for governments who continue to subsidise Big Oil?

Sit up straight & live your 'lifetime' properly

('Childhood' in Hamburg, Germany)


Yes I'm back and it only took a matter of minutes to be immersed once more into the madness of "Nanny State Australia" - sigh

This made me want to flee back to Paris immediately...


...LET ME OUT OF HERE!

I ♥ London town





GUESS WHAT? - I finally met Mark from ibikelondon last week!!!!!

Oodles of tagliatelle, charm & bicycle expertise were all on the menu for me at this longed-for luncheon date!!!

...could it get any better?

I don't think so!!!
