    Gidday Knuckleheads, Uncle Knackers here.

    When l'm not on the tools over the Christmas break l love hanging out with the kids doing boy's things. Unfortunately l'm getting older and just can't do what l used to be able to. It frustrates the ?/##** out of me! Here's an example of what l'm talking about. Read the intro and then watch the movie (the link is below).

    Way to old..tick, 10kg over weight...tick, No helmet...tick, No protective armour...tick, Half a dozen beers under the belt...tick, Thongs (flip flops) on....tick, let's go racing!

    Here's a classic example of when an old bloke (Me) tries to relive his youth and glory days and in the process gets his ambitions mixed up with his capabilities. Perhaps the few extra kilos may have contributed to the outcome. What are your thoughts?

    Cheers,
    Uncle Knackers :beer:

    Well, well, well...uncle's back and he's been BMX racing. Outstanding!

    Where you been hiding? Is it winter or summer in the land down under?

    Yeah mate l'm back to see what you crazy guys from the other side of the world have been up to! As you can see l've been busy kissing the dirt! For the record, my shoulder still hasn't come good.

    It's summer over here at the moment and thank god it's been a cool one! However it's only early days yet. There's still a couple of potentially stinking hot months to come. The trouble over here in summer is the bush fires. Man, we have real good one's. So far so good.

    Check you all later,
    Uncle Knackers

    Just remember Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional! Wife says I will never grow up.

    I hear the same thing all the time.

    Being a man is pretty great.

    All things being equal, growing old is still far better than the alternative, eh?

    That was a good laugh. At least your family got a good video out of it!
