Home again, home again. Jiggedy jig.

Thought up a new thingy - "Bargain Bucket" as in... "I met this wee lass last night, she was a right bargain bucket.. having seen the two breasts and two legs on offer I thought the best thing was to get my head down and munch the coleslaw instead".

And a new joke - What do you get when three Kenyans have an argument? A stampede!

And the polishing up of this morning's joke - I went to a dogging site the other night but wasn't impressed. Seems sticking my cock in a Labrador's mouth didn't go down too well. Which is ironic.

Big thanks to all of you. Great to see new and old alike. Thanks for running the Sting Phil and Scott. And thanks for allowing me to play chase Gaz!

Until next time.

Click, click, click.
Off to charge my phone now.

I also had a wee incident on the way home, as involved the 'polis' nae less...

What happened Gaz? nothing too damaging I hope??!!

Big thanks to all those who were more than mildly interested and turned up, the profannysaurus highlights were brilliant. Stored up for future reference:

Difficult child
Death Nest
and the original Dizzy Gillespie of course.

Didn't have to stop for a kip on the way home, surprised Bod on the A1, I too thought he had gone off with Bill.

Big thanks to Scott, Phil and Gary for all the hard work and to the unknown smart car driver who almost defeated a Hornet 250 but ultimately lost out to the Highland Sting ride out crew. (oh and the filling station for Gary and Kenny's free petrol) :lol

Hi all thanks for a great weekend ,to Scott, Phil and Gaz for the organisation and all that attended ,got home in one piece ,but seriously think I've got to get my head together ,what with misplacing stuff and my braking into corners ,must learn to go with the flow but maybe I'm a bit to old to change my bad habits and maybe slip to the back off the pack.

The weather tried to spoil our weekend but failed , had some good nights in the pub and around the fire , had some of the best chips ever ,sorry Scott they weren't yours the ones in the pub win :Lick and never seen so much pizza in one place :Lick .

I did start following Bill but then noticed the sat nav wanted to carry on the A1 so I corrected my route and was really surprised when Sue and George reappeared in my mirror ,because I was sure they were ahead of me.

Come on then Gaz what you been up to??

your never to old as long as you can get your leg over

Ducati gone , now a Tiger man (1050)

By the way for those concerned... aka my tease worked a treat. :lol

My phone flew oot o' ma side pouch tank bag was all...
Some numpty had left the zip unzipped !?

Ye see, when I paid Martin (camp site owner) for Henry and Tracey's Wig Wam.
I'd put my wallet back in bike jacket pocket; nothing odd there you might think.
But I'd removed my wallet from my tank bag - can you guess where !?
Yip; so I'd left the side pouch open when I returned to my steed; Black Boab.

So after about thrity minutes of back road bimbling:
(I was heading over the Campsie Hills on 'wee roads' back to Glesguh).
My smert phone decided to eject itself frae said open pouch.

As it did so it first rattled off me; with me immediately and creatively thinking...
"Ohyah...whit wis that, that jist hit me !?"

I looked in my mirror to see my smert phone continue its rattling.
But this time off the road and have to say, it fragmented somewhat gymnastically.

I jumped off and immediatelly and very optimistically tried to phone it with my work phone.
Aye; they are that smert these phones, that even in bits they still ring... not ! :p

But never one to be daunted...
I waved down the next car and as seemed a grand idea at the time; the next one too ! :)
Ye see, with Boab parked at side of road in a half emergency abandoned stance.
They must have thought; "Oh oh... an' accident."
Once stopped, I explained there had indeed been an accident and my phone was the casualty.
One who was likely needing intensive care but could be described as presently in a stable yet critical condition.

So four minutes later...
There is me, two cars and their three occupants all out on the road.
Each of us was staring intently at the verges and two of us were also thrashing at nettles with sticks.

So who happens by when this is ongoing... yip, Mr Plod and Mrs Plod. :copper
Not sure what they must have thought of the one motorcycle and two car road chicane...
Not to mention associated drivers unhealthy interest in verge vegetation...

But anyway; a further two minutes later and four addtional eyes have joined the search.
Suffice to say woo hoo... Mrs lady plod found it; well the bit that mattered, that is.
:clap :clap :clap
See by then, I'd found the battery, back cover and case - just not the actual phone.

Endgame is on returning battery to its bed and with an almost miracle like undamaged screen.
My lifeline smerty pants phone came back to life.... woohoo. :D
Okay a crack on the corner of casing, but heh hoh.

Lesson from this moment of life could be; "Know when tae zip it !"
But clearly frae the length o' this post; its a practise I've yet to master...
Still hopefully before the next self induced crisis...
The moment of schtum, will be a given life skill. :blahblah

Click click click. :rollin
Yer Gaz 42
