Quiet Night Out

I seem to have been heading out a lot as of late. This time it was to have a quick squizz at an MR2 belonging to one of Winnie’s mates. Unfortunately, being useless with a camera still meant no real pics of it, only bits and pieces of it and a couple of others. The … Continue reading

Just Commodores Cruise 8 Feb 2012

Wednesday night last week was the fortnightly jc.com meet. As usual, there were four or five commodores and a bunch of rice. Not that I’m complaining, I just find it amusing. By the time it took to arrive at the Breakwater, all bar a lone commodore had decided that was enough for one night, and … Continue reading
