No real reason ..

Hello ... was merely pottering around the Internet looking for something else

Then found this ... erk ... had almost forgotten.
On the other hand, might want to inform my long term readers that was requested by teh
"Roads and Traffic Authority" to present my self to the nearest Medical Clinic for a 'check up'.
Apparently those who are authorised to hold a mere "motor vehicle"Divers license (weight dependent) do not have to turn up at a medical clinic after age 70. OOer.

 However ... it seems that "motorcycle " licences require me to turn up at the Doc's.
Have to say that passed with flying colours .. 'normal' blood pressure .. 'blood sugar' at 5 ..
'Eyesight' ... ah; while i "passed" the medical test for drivers who do not need 'eyesight assistance'- (glasses) for driving - or riding a motorcycle - on South Australia roads ..

Did find that the bottom two lines of 'eyesight test letters' were a grey blur.
Erk.

Congrats! It would make more sense if they made all drivers take a test after 70. I mean, it's the other drivers who have to be able to watch for the motorcyclists. I've seen some close calls that never turned into anything bad because the person on the motorcycle was paying more attention than the people in the cars.

Congrats, but brings to mind the old fashioned word "skite".
And lucky I am to find your blog again, it was lost in some browser punch up between Firefox and IE.

The whole eye chart has been blurry for me since I had German measles in 4th grade. You will have to do the motorcycle driving for me.

Harry, from my point of view - these days - no-one should be legally allowed to be in control of any motor vehicle until at least - 25 years on this planet ... meh
Have to admit to at least 3 motor vehicles "written off" between ages of 18 and 25. None since.

Yep, apparently was "lucky"... no other person suffered serious damage either ... (believe it or not).

Oh Hi Jahteh. nice to know that you remain alive ... surviving all your 'troubles' ... heh.

Anne, apparently there is a Honda https://goldwing.com.au/</a? 'traveling' motorcycle available nearby ... if you can find the fare to get here .... will try to buy it ...meh.
(ah, fantasies)

A, Harry .. would you believe that ha recently encountered the 'local' Police ... where by was "charged" the 'criminal offence' of "HOON DRIVING"?

Took four months for the opportunity to turn up at the local (round trip roughly 100Klm - whatever that is in miles) ...
For the Magistrate to dismiss the 'offence' as trivial ...
but did end up with no loss of licence - and a $300.00 'fine'.

Erk .... perhaps reminiscent of Ye Olde days ... Pay the Magistrate; avoid further problems with the Barons (or kings ... meh) ...

Magistrate ...
"ten bags of grain - or six months in the Dungeon".

Davoh, wishing you joy and every other good thing in the New Year and in the rest of this old year too. Not perfection, which is unattainable and probably useless in any case, but the best we (all of us)can be at this time in our lives, that's not a bad thing to wish for.

Natali ... did try to 'create' a sort of Christmas card for my neibour (have been doing 'gardening' - on demand for her for 18 months so far ... Hey...
Am trying to become a 'reconstructed' "metrosexual" to suit some sort of vague "Feminist" ideal .......

But do not hold yer breath ....
