...I can cross off another life-goal from my list. :)

Iain

as long as you know what to do if you have placed all crosses.... :)

So it is better you make no list! It's better not to know what is done an what is left .... .

Every day of life should be an adventure , it makes it easier in the end!

Back to topic :lol:

Nice pics Malcolm, thats takes some guts asking those people. :) I had a few people look at me strange too when photographing it in central Auckland. But I had the same attitude and Auckland is quite big so chances are I wont get recognised and had for indecent acts :)

Bibs,

you raise a good point. Poor old LEFty is suffering from 'droop' around his rear uprights. The problem has raised so much concern locally (those Tokyo girls where deeply concerned that he seemed unable to keep it up), that an emergency airlift was arranged for LEFty today to take him to a local sports car garage.

Although the garage tried all the could, they where stumped, they are more used to working on dancing donkeys...

LEFty is now recovering from the trauma of it all and if he isn't on his way to HK by the weekend he hopes to take another 'restorative' trip out, maybe to see Fuji if the weather clears.

Regards to all

Malc (& LEFty)

Send Lefty to me around August and I'll see if he can become the highest Lotus at 14,255 ft on top of Long's Peak, overlooking a 2000ft cliff... There will be too much snow until Aug though.

I am off to Malaysia and the jungle in Borneo in October so he can come along.....

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

I should think that there should be some Asian or US stops between Japan and Scotland?...

LEFty is currently on his way to Australia. I had planned on him going to Hong Kong but never received any info on addresses out there. After Australia, who knows!

Thanks to Malc Holmes for bundling him up snuggly from Japan. I will have to take a drive over the weekend and see what mischief we can get up to.

We report back next week.

Cheers
