Too bad George

I would have lost too.

For Weave, how about the Paramatta Eels as a name for one of the teams in the NRL competition? Though they weren't slippery enough this year to avoid finishing at the bottom of the competition ladder.

Strangely enough, early in the season, I was on the top of the local tipping competition for a month!

I did the Eels thing though, and ended up near the bottom.  ::)

Taken out of context, that sounds very... interesting? ;)

Not the bus stop, but I'm always amazed how these truck drivers get the huge supermarket delivery vehicles around ninety degree corners on streets not much wider than my driveway.

And yes, we are getting some needed rain in my local area.  :rain:

What amazes me are the road trains which seem to hurtle around the countryside.

Yes, ran into (not literally) a few on my Darwin trip a few years ago. Big scary things, especially in Darwin traffic!

Bealette who lives there is used to them, though!

Been a while since I've been to a bus stop, so here's a shot of the dangerous one in town that I unfortunately have to frequent to get home from board meetings.





Advertising a local festival.... it's on every year, but don't ask me what it's about!

Looks safe enough.
Just googled the festival.....local waste wise community arts affair (sounds rather genteel to me).
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I wonder if one of them's saying ' Hey Man, I think I'm freaking out, is it me or is that weirdo guy taking pictures of the bus stop?'  :D

Ah, just a weird habit I'm into... like them, I suppose.  :worried:

Wished I'd taken a few in Liverpool and Wigan a few years back!  :beers:

Maybe a hint to your nearest and dearest about a potential Christmas pressie?
