haha Yeah I suppose I did... but I just don't see the point of them... never have been into ferris wheels though... Now if they all started building massive 7 storey aviaries in the middle of the CBD and had some nice parks surrounding them THAT I would be into :blink:

there were people lined up ready to pay money to get on the ferris wheel today Jimmy, so it seems that there are many who disagree with your take on ferris wheels

Oh I don't doubt that at all Dave, I'm pretty boring when it comes to that sort of stuff.

Hey Dave love ya beach pics. Your WACA photo a good one but not exactly the WACA mate. That building is the old East Perth Police Headquarters. The lighting towers are all you can see of the WACA from that angle.

You are right RIPbudgies, that building is not part of the WACA. Look closely everyone...

please note that picture is taken form the car.

 

You will see other objects in the picture. The cars in front are not part of the WACA, nor is the bush, nor is the orange witches hat/cone.

 

I was driving nearby and saw the light towers. I was making the point that the WACA was over there. Sorry if that posed confusion to others.

We went to the drive in last night. There was an event with the Cadillac Club where there was a cruise along the coast with the Cadillac Club combined with the Buick Car Club, so Dave and I joined up with that and ended up at the Drive In movies. An interesting line up of cars and some good people.

We watched the movie BOLT...which was fun. A nice balmy evening with lovely red and pink streaks through the sky at dusk. Havent been to the drive in for years. I think this was the last drive in left in Perth.

 

Here are some pics

Not upset, nor childish. Much like the great Jerry Seinfeld, this is called observational humour. Sorry if it is not style.

I was a bit sarcastic in my reply to RIPbudgies and I did apologise in a pm. I thought I should also apologise in a public forum. I did not mean to insult her and if I offended, let me publicly repeat my apology. Sorry.

Dave all I was trying to do was to point out that when you post a photo and simply entitled it "The WACA" it gave anybody who does not know the impression that the building in the foreground is the WACA which of course it is not. This is a public forum and as such photos will get lifted and can end up anywhere with the wrong caption attached. The net is a big place. It can be a great source to learn some really cool stuff. On the other hand a lot of misinformation is also available.

 

Dave I accept your apology and I am not a big fan of Jerry Seinfeld. I always remember a saying I grew up with: "Sarcasim is the lowest form of wit". Although it has an excellent use as a tool for the detection of dementia I personally have never been a big fan it it.
