Your trip sounds like a script for a National Lampoons movie. Thank goodness for holiday insurance. Smart move.

H, when are you going to post your photo?
Thanks JJJ, right back at ya....

Yes, the only thing missing was Christie Brinkley dancing around her red Ferrari while I was eating dog pee stained sandwiches.....maybe next year? I forgot, the wife also got a ticket (3 points and $240 fine) for failing to give way....winner...


Come on H, don't keep the ladies in suspenders, wait.... that sounds good!

Cheers

Chris

Interesting! My post has been removed!
All it said was "Why is it Victoria's Fault?"

Hi Ken,

Should have explained that, it's not Victoria's fault, just that bad things seem to happen to me and my family there, that's all....as you can appreciate from the story. Could have happened anywhere, but it seems that whenever I go south, things just seem to go south.....

Nothing more meant by the comment other than circumstance.

Cheers

Chris

Bloody hell Chris! That's a terrible story mate, I was nearly in tears for you and especially your wife! I think I would have come very close to ending up in jail with the dude telling you rack off I'm on the phone....he didn't know your situation, but still...how rude!

Thanks Baz,

Yeah, considering he was customer service, no-one was at his desk and I was there with a Jetstar employee who was asking for me and Qantas and Jetstar are effectively the same company....AND he was chatting to a friend and not actually doing any work, I thought it a bit much that we were kept waiting for 3 minutes while he waffled....

Cheers

Chris

Geez Chris, that sounds horrible!! I feel so sorry for you and especially your wife How could they NOT have known she had a broken sternum!? Makes you wonder about some Doctor's... Wow, that is certainly some terrible luck!

Makes me feel lucky our trip only required one ambulance call oh, and a very minor car accident...maybe it is something about Viccy

If I park my scope next to yours I hope you'll let me share my XW's with you ... you just have to move in very close so we can both appreciate the view. Aye, what a hotty.
Chris already knows what I think of him due to an embarrassingly ill (or well) timed chat room remark. I think I made him blush when he entered . Get a group of girls together, and well you know...

Play nice and give us a pic H (aye, another hottie!)

Sorry about your holiday Chris. That story was so full of suspense that I nearly broke out in a cold sweat!

Thanks Daniel, She has fully recovered now, although does get the old ache every now and then, just glad it wasn't worse... Cheers

Hi David, nope, not planning any star parties south of the border or popping down any time soon. I'm sure everyone would understand...

Thanks for the kind wishes everyone.

PS. Sorry for effectively hijacking this thread with my holiday from hell....should have posted it in it's own thread...

It was about a thousand posts back since the last pic of someone

Geez, help! I'm starting to sound like a moderator
