You forget, Stretch. I know how much of a bulls**t artist you are. :lol:

He also couldn't catch a fly with his chopsticks. I always wondered why you'd even try!

Cheers

:twisted: Hey Jude (pardon pun),

Yes, the guy in the black shirt WAS with the Dutch girls. It was their male friends ... all from the Netherlands.

You on the lookout for "toy boys" now??? :shock: :lol: :wink:

Seejay,

Glad to see you didn't get carried away then and try and jump on one of the many pylons at Cockle Bay and try and balance on one leg with your arms raised in front of you and hands pointing downwards .... Ahhhh .... glasshopper!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :wink:

Cheers,

CJ,

Bulls*** Artist? Me?

I can remember one Shipwright Officer Hennessey saying something similar to me on the 'Wart once.

Speaking of that esteemed Shipwright Officer. Remember the Advance Welding Course. Tubby was our Divisional Officer.

One day when I was in the doorway of the Blacksmith Shop, and you were over the road?

"Tiep Tipwright O'Keep - tome here!!

"Det tucked, Tipwright Bloomfield!"

"Tiep Tipwright O'Keep - tome here, now!"

You leg it, a hand clamps onto my ear and pulls. A voice says to me, "No, you tome wid me, Tipwright Bloomfield!"

Off to his office I was hauled, given a strong talking to about taking the piss out of Officers and sent back to the Welding Shed. And gave me crap PP1s to boot at the end of the course.

Cheers,

Alright, alright, alright, put me down for the next Sydney GetTogetherEx. I can no longer stand by and let the Green Empire be maligned PLUS there obviously needs to someone in attendance who can act as morals and decorum representative. Oh yeah, I will also post bail in advance...

P.S. Brian, wear your RANATE blazer . . . ..

(...and if any other Greenies, Tiffies, etc., would like to join Petels, we could always use more
'Petel-Pushers' for when the Chippies get too p*ssed to 'petel' any more'...!!!)
:roll: :roll: :roll:

Rick,
Truly a work of art. As for me, I'll taker on the hot pants role (need to earn some pin money)...the permabulator though looks like it needs some "dress ship" lighting - otherwise a superb vehicle - just need a specially shaped seat for BC and a periscope for the guzunders :twisted:

CJ,

I can also remember standing with Ron Ashmore and (Big) Tug Wilson one morning when Tubby came strolling up and says, "Dood morning Teip Tipwright Ashmore, dood morning Teip Tipwright Wilson, dood morning Tipwright Bloomfield (only a PO then)."

I say, "Good morning, Sir." Ron says, "Good morning, Sir." Tug says, "Dood morning, Tipwright Oppiter Hennety."

Tubby's eyes narrowed, he looks at Tug and says, "You taking the pidd out of me, Teip Tipwright Wilson?"

Straight faced Tug replies, "Oh, no, Tir!"

Tubby wanders off.

I am definately coming on the next one, if I cant keep you in line then I at least want you out of line correctly, bloody Chippies..... just cant trust them to get well and truely - without a Tiffy to help them along.
