Greetings. Do you live in a shack? I have trouble with 'gravatars' -generally taking them to be true. But (wombats aside) that's no problem where people display themselves as possums, and other creepy little things, because it's often what they are.

You just look a bit silly, that's all. Credulous. In a 'Dad comes to town' sort of way.

(Hoping that's not 'offensive')

The Wombat in the first comment is Wombat in Malaysia, no real relationship with Davo who used to be Wombat Wol, way back in the archives. 'gravatars' are whatever ya want them to be. I pinched this one from a "Dad and Davo" movie ;-). liked the "slightly sardonic bushie" sort of image, which sorta fitted Wombat Wol, but Davo (who has been accused of being an egocentric a..hole - who am i to judge) kept butting in and eventually took over the running of this blog.

In actual fact am sleek, sophisticated, urbane, witty, intelligent and bear a remarkable resemblance to Clark Gable, complete with pencil mustache (as he used to be, certainly not 'now'. Wouldn't like to look like he probably does these days yuk!) .. but if you believe all that, you'll probably believe everything I write .. heh heh.

Anyway, nobody can offend me, unless i let them, and would prefer to be Credulous, than "In-". Welcome anyway, Robert. :)

Well I just looked at the video, and golly, I wouldn't have thought those old crates could do all that. I saw one today; a double winger, they fly out of Laverton, near where I live.

(And Davo, you are one of the least egocentric blogpersons ever)

Davo said...

"old" crates?? That's a 315HP engine with wings - Pitts super special, and probably a lot younger than the pilot. Did you know that Chris Sperou started flying in 1960. Lord only knows what age he was then.

Have you been across to have a look at the P40 Kittyhawk, or was that the one you were referring to?

(and any more compliments from you, laddie, gets automatic deletion. And please don't use "heh" it's bloody annoying .. heh)
