The good, the bad and Mandurah! :-)

First up, an apology. Over two months without a post is borderline cruelty, knowing as I do how you all hang on my every word! πŸ™‚ Aaahhh, I crack myself up, which is probably just as well, seeing as I don’t often see much evidence that I crack anyone else up. Aaaaaaawwwww, I hear none of you say. πŸ™‚ But enough of this self-something-ing, my profuse apologies and I will endeavour to make sure that it never happens again. Now, on to the post.

I saw something in a localΒ  newspaper today that I just had to write about. Apparently a guy was found with a tomahawk, a knife and an iron bar in his car. He was charged with intent to cause fear and his defense was, get this, that he lived in Mandurah and needed protection. πŸ™‚ I bet the local tourist board can’t wait to get hold of that. I can just imagine the tag line for the ads. “Are you carrying deadly weapons? Then why not take the chance to come to Mandurah?” πŸ™‚

But to be fair, I probably should give a little bit of balance. This is a picture, taken by a good friend of mine, of me out riding on a winters day in Mandurah. I’m the dot on the far hill you can see if you look very closely. Not bad really, when you think that it was taken 7 seconds after I passed her. πŸ™‚Β  A pretty idyllic scene hey? Of course, I was suitably tooled up. πŸ™‚
