Protest dually noted  :Chocies


But while we all have no doubt you where at Angusvale in East Gippsland Victoria there is no permanent fixed into the ground Town welcome type sign like the other pics taken.


So it's a respectful NO !!! But a very easy fix to make it a winner.

I.e. Go to your nearest town sign preferably in your own town in the busiest time of the day wearing your wife's best race day hat and grab a pic of you and the bike infront of the sign  :rofl  :rofl that would make you the winner of this round for sure  :p  :p

.... NO !!!

The first chance I get I'm heading to see my solicitor.

Right outside his office is a "Welcome to Alphington" sign.

PS. I don't see the purpose of a 'wildcard', if it can't be used for this type of situation.

"A reminder to all, your wild card can be ANY town sign starting with ANY letter at all, presented in a humorous way"

You got the humour right.  You got the name right.  But you missed the key part of the "wild card".  It has to be an actual town sign, not your residence at the site of a long abandoned town's site.    :-(((

I'm sure your Solicitor will concur (for a fee).     :grin

With Pockey's agreement, a substitute "A" town ...........

GUARD

Gisborne:


Upper Plenty:


Any Town:


Rawson:


Diggers Rest:


Do some poor the quality, ya might need click on some of the photos to go to Photobucket, click on the "+" in the circle on the lower right outside of the image, and then on the "+" in the circle inside the lower right of the image, this will take you to a clearer image.

Mmmmm, hoping to make the next 'solution' a bit quicker, we'll go with ULP.

Come on Pockey.  I think you'll have to pay that one.    :grin

Besides, it starts with "A"!

I'm aiming to get out sometime this week.  I only get to ride every 2nd week at the moment since I have a foster child with a disability week on week off.  Can't exactly leave him home alone and go out riding.  Can't even ride to and from work since I have to drop him off at vacation care on the way.

then again, we're being threatened with another monsoon trough this week, with possibility of a cyclone by Wednesday.....

If it comes to that, the ST will be staying safely under the carport.  I ride in downpours if I don't have a choice, but it's not my favourite pastime.
