PostSubject: How I celebrated my 50th?   Thu Aug 24, 2017 8:13 am

For the first time in my life I took the day off work for my birthday.
Hell, it was my 50th, I deserved it!

And since the day was crystal clear, and low to mid teens (*C), I figured I should celebrate the day by taking 'The Ranga' for a ride.

And since it was mid-week, and not a school holiday, I figured the road to the coast via The Clyde would be reasonably clear of traffic.

I was right!
I blew the candles right out of the bike Twisted Evil

I even found Pete in the "Royal Office" on the way home and had a beer!

Was a great 50th birthday. Thumbs Up

"CLANCY - OF THE OVERFLOW"

‘Twas his mate who wrote it, and verbatim I will quote it:
“Clancy’s gone to Queenbeyan riding, and we don’t know where he are.”

And the bush hath friends to meet him, and their kindly voices greet him
In the murmur of the beers at the pub in its bars,
And he sees the vision splendid of the sunlit plains extended,
And at night the wondrous glory of the everlasting stars.

And I somehow fancy that I’d like to change with Clancy,
Like to take a turn at riding where the seasons come and go,
While he faced the round eternal of the cashbook and the journal —
But I doubt he’d suit the office, Clancy, of “The Overflow”.

Good one Clance. Next time take a couple of days mid-week & try, say, down the Bonang, up the Omeo & across on Elliot's Way. Just because.

I can remember my 60th pretty good, my 50th not at all, my 40th - let's not go there - before that is ancient history and best left there.

Happy birthday Clancy

Happy Birthday...remember it now as it will start to fade. Hell, I can't remember my 50th, or 60th and even my 70th is fading already. Great you took the day to celebrate!

Happy (belated) birthday. My 50th was a damp squib but my 30th lasted 4 days, involved some serious and drunken Norton racing and was gate crashed by an up and coming band called The Smiths. They were very shy.
