Just in case you were wondering, I am still here. It is quite some time since I’ve been anywhere. I certainly haven’t been everywhere, man.

I didn’t go to the Temora air show. Coincidentally, I was doing something else in Temora at the time of the air show. However, my lads jumped at the chance to attend so we made a weekend of it. The three of us camped at the airfield which was a novel experience. My True Love snapped a photo of this leering Spitfire. There is another air show coming up in October ’22 for fans of old war planes. Temora is a two hour drive from Canberra.

Too scary. Let’s look at some cars instead. The photo below of some stunt driving at Movie World is courtesy of my eldest son. The Movie World excursion was part of his band tour. We could never afford to take the kids and dogs on holidays. Probably because we were paying for music lessons, school fees, vet bills, etc.

Movie World

My True Love and I eventually went road tripping and left the kids at home with the dogs. We took his and her cars. Only joking about the his and her cars. Now our boys are busy with their own careers so we are once again stuck at home with the dogs. I was envious of this pair that I saw travelling down the highway. Now that epitomises the spirit of adventure.

In 2019, we accidentally found ourselves at the Yass Classic Car Show. I understand that was the last classic car show organised by the founders of this popular event. A new classic car show under new management kicked off again this year. Anyhoo, my favourite car of the 2019 show was this steampunk makeover.

I will finish with one last fighter jet photo. Very much a DIY jobbie.

May the force be with you, ladies and gentlemen.

Kind Regards.

  1. That steampunk car is very cool! I had to laugh at your comment about the kids being gone and you and your TL being stuck home with the dogs. There is a commercial on TV where the parents say good-bye to their college-bound boy, then open their garage and take to the open road on the motorcycles. I picture us with a little sidecar on the bikes and the cats in it wearing little goggles…๐Ÿ˜น

  2. It was good to see a new post from you come across my email, Tracy! That Spitfire is very scary. The steampunk vehicle is quite the rig. I’ve always wondered how cars can drive on two wheels at a 45 degree angle (not that I want to try it myself).

    1. Exactly, Dries. ๐Ÿ™‚ When I was young I owned a tiny Suzuki Swift (nothing like they are now) and I took that car on some hairy 4 wheel drive roads. Now I have the big 4 wheel drive and I’ve only put it into 4WD mode a half dozen times as a precaution. I don’t really need a 4WD now. It’s not like I’m ever going to be chased by a bull elephant or a pride of lions!

    1. Thanks, Tina. It was a tricky challenge because most of our travel photos were taken pre-digital cameras and are gathering dust in photo albums. Even with the digital photos, for some like the X-Wing fighter, I had to go way back! ๐Ÿ™‚
