miss..

my abs are now flabs,
ive swapped water for beer
but worst of all
my get up n go
got up n went

... seriously tho, I look back after reading what you wrote and I'd have to say (surprisingly to myself !!) yes i have been a fairly active person..17 - 23 caving/climbing, 18 - 49 karate/aikido, 18 - 30 dirt bikes; im 52 now and havent done much physical stuff (so to speak) in the last 3 years hence i guess why I'm itching to pull a few mono's on a bike..

as for mrs nao... opposites attract - she breaks a sweat getting out of bed :lol: :lol: :lol:
must say tho, she does love to travel - tent to 5 star and she has a smile on her dial..few years time she'll be happy cruising the countryside with this grey haired nomad

These are our hobbies.

The 4WD. Its our escape machine. The tent is always on the top. The drawers in the back are always filled. We even have some clothing and food permanently stored in the car.

The Jetskis. My wife has the red one and I have a blue one. I just took it of the trailer on this photo.

And my "favorite waste of time" is the girl behind the wheel!! For 25 years next Monday!!

This whole set up gives us great joy!! Its not all new and not the flashiest gear but as soon as we jump in the car
a good day will happen!!

Cheers

No secret here...you are allowed to know....we are connected at the heart not the hip. We have room to do our own thing and love to hang out together.
......and I tell my wife every morning how lucky she is with a bloke like me... :lol:
We don't take things to seriously and we like to laugh with each other and about each other....

I have been playing around with this little Honda Accord.

It's a 1981 Honda Accord Automatic. It has done 105.000 km and I am the second registered owner. It did about 2000 km between 2010 and 2013. Nan and Pop did not use the car much at all.....
It goes really well and is cheap as chips to run.
After I bought her I replaced the tyres, CV boots, brakes, bushes, belts, flushed all fluids and had one site of the car repainted as there were a fair few shopping trolley dents.
I really like this little car. It goes so well and is as stock as it left the showroom 32 years ago. It even has the original spare.

Cheers

Looks great Goldy, I thought it was a real Paj glancing over the first pick.
