Just a FYI….

Captain Thunderbolt (Nev) from NSW has had a serious Tractor accident near his property over the weekend.

He has a number of busted bits and had an 8 hour surgery.

Mrs El Capitian Thunderbolt (Maria) advises the odd phone call or txt to Nev would be appreciated particularly as due to our current lockdown visitation is an issue.

Maria will endeavour to get the laptop to him to log on in the near future, naturally he will have a substantial recovery process ahead of him.


Regards

Tractors can be very unforgiving.

I hope the recovery and rehabilitation are as short as possible.

Bloody Hell Nev....    So sorry to read about your accident, and pray that you will have a quick and complete recovery.   We also wish Maria well as she supports you and copes without you being on the farm for a while.

Nearly 4 weeks on now- hope your recovery is going well, Nev.  Still haven't seen a post by you.  Won't Maria let you have the laptop?
For the modern man who lives in the city, riding a bike might be one of the only ways to escape the humdrum monotony. To take off and ride. To be both at one with nature and one with the bike. To feel masculine. Adam Piggott
