The title of today’s post may be familiar to Queenslanders as it’s one of the slogans often found on RACQ road service vehicles used to advertise their batteries.…..and as we all know, a flat battery isn’t much good.
Anthony hadn’t had a chance to get me out of the garage for a week and when we were about to go out last night, a flat battery was what stopped us.
But today I was all charged up, and ready to go…..and despite the colder conditions (due to today’s lack of sun etc) it was a good ride. And it was also an excuse for Anthony to get some bottles of Shiraz (this week he recommends the south eastern Australian 2007 Cleanskin Shiraz, from Liquourland for only $5.99)
It was a great ride, there wasn’t much traffic and once I was all powered up it was great to get out there and enjoy the late afternoon.
For today’s pillion passenger of the week, we once again return to the only girl to have ever sat on my pillion seat. She’s the love of Anthony’s life, an amazing photographer, (for more info checkout http://www.vickijames.com.au) and I would have to say that she has been my favourite passenger featured on this blog.
She loves scooter rides, whether it’s a trip to the Rusty Eagle, up over Tomewin road, or a sunset cruise by the beach…..she loves her photography, she is the one and only Scooter Girl, (and here she is with Scooter Boy)…….she is Vicki James.
And finally for today…….with all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed.
Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote “The Hokey Pokey” died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started……….
