Once again, Squiddy to the rescue!

As to identifying the train on the left, I should, but I'm currently having a beer watching NSW vs QLD live from Perth (which exasperates me as Western Australia don't play rugby league).....

Wife's popped out so just put it on out of interest. The stadium doesn't look very full but that could be because it looks like it's absolutely (family forum) chucking it down.

Enjoy the game.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Take a pic and start a new 'Bealman's Excellent Cab Adventures' thread where you then take pics on the way home of all the poor sods waiting for a bus  :D

Awesome!

I just got rained on and got an overly expensive cab.

Anyway, it's 2019. not the halcyon days of the early 20th century.....

If they ever existed  ;)

Thanks so much! It's nice to know folk have enjoyed the saga.

Epilogue definitely coming.... a few distractions in Bealmanland at moment, but it will come.

Thanks again!  :beers:

Not the epilogue.

OK, I promised an epilogue, and I haven't forgotten, but this is not it.

Just thought I'd better eat the Japanese choccy I brought back, before it's way past it's use-by date. First the Kit Kat, wasn't too bad, except I'm not a big fan of white chocolate:



Then I've got this stuff which I haven't opened yet, but it looks OK... it has the word bourbon in the top corner, so can't be too bad!  ;)

Fascinating article on history of chocolate in Japan here:
https://www.tofugu.com/japan/japanese-chocolate/
So you didnít go with the green WASABI flavoured Kit Kat then?

Thanks for the link  :thumbsup:

Ha ha, no way, thank you!

However the Kit Kat probably would have been green if I left it any longer  :)

Very interesting link, by the way.  :beers:
