REAL TASMANIAN ROCK

Rosemary purchased the usual tourist presents, Tea Towels, Caps and silly Fridge Magnets, all with differing motifs with reference to Tasmania, the traditional coming back from holiday presento for the relos, (all made in China).
Apart from giving useful informative literature, I had the novel Idea of bringing back some real Tasmanian rock, not the seaside holiday rock candy with the name of the tourist town etched all the way through the stick of rock, but real unusually shaped smooth rocks, some of these weighing nearly a lb or 500 gr. the rocks were collected from near the shore; thirty in all, to say the least these would be the genuine article, these were placed in our car for the journey home to Sydney- 23.5 hours 1100 kilometers-680miles on the 23,000 ton ship 'Spirit of Tasmania 3'.
We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation and travelled about 900 kls and stayed overnight in eight different towns, some of the roads were bad and some barely 25ft wide for eachway traffic.
We have nearly finished the transition of moving and have slowed down to a trot and hopefully the trauma of moving will soon be over.
'Oh the Rocks' A mixed reception, the grand children thought I was a nut at first, I eventually convinced them otherwise, a daughter in law (artistic type) took three, the other relatives have not turned up, but will no doubt be visiting after the hard graft has finished. see ya, vest.

Vest said...

Gordon. It is Sunday Morning here in my part of ozstrayer and six hours since I returned from the club, I am not in pleasant thought provoking mode, however your good news regarding Zed has cheered me up considerably.

Bridget Jones said...

Cool!!!

Notta Wallflower said...

Personally, I'd rather have the rocks verus something that is made in China but supposed to be from Tasmania. It might take the grandkids a while to appreciate something like that. :_P

tshsmom said...

I always bring rocks back from vacation.

Vest said...

My favorite rocks are one which was collected at 'Sandy Bay' Cornwall England, no sand; just large pebbles.
The other is from the top of 'Table Mountain' Capetown Sth Africa.

Vest said...

Pics of Tasmania are now available.

tshsmom said...

My favorites are the petrified bog I found in Washington state, and the rock with amethyst bits that I found in Wyoming.

scumbag said...

hooray for racism!

Vest said...

scumbag, I would imagine you and most of your friends would be pale green. you must have been sniffing around the blogs I comment on, I must have missed you by just minutes. BTW go to the front of the stagecoach, me a racist; indeed not, at least I hope not.

lime said...

scumbag said...

mean black bitch said...

look at all deez muthaufckin' crackas up in here! vest, nigga i 'bout fell asleep readin' yo borin' ass bullshit. and scumbag, what da FUCK is you wearin'?

Kristen said...

Ok, got to your blog by way of other blogs and read a comment about taking Annabelle back to the Zoo.........

WTF? Dude, that girl is hot, sexy, and freakin' adorable. You should get your glasses adjusted....

Suck it up and apologize, it's the Man thing to do.

scumbag said...

well when you screw sheep like they do down under, i'm gusseing a babe like annabella just don't look so good to ol' vesty.

Everything Nice said...

Actually I have to agree that it wasn't a very nice thing to say about anabella.

She's my lover, and if I were in my right mind and had the money in my pocketbook, I might fly to australia and kick your ass for insulting my girl.

Are you jealous that she kisses girls? or just plain rude...

HuneeB said...

Annabella is sweet, smart and published! So there!

What you said is not very considerate; try to be a little more grown-up and not out people down...Maybe your ploy to comment on a popular blog got some people to your blog but seriously it's not very interesting...

Think all the rumors about seamen are true, they are all gay...

If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all!

What would some Aussie know about a girl from Kansas anyway??

crabcake said...

I don't know annabella. I don't you. I don't even know scumbag. Fact, I'm not sure why I'm here.

Oh yeah. I saw annabella's pic and she's a lovely girl. You should apologize. That was mean!

jiggs said...

pbc said...

Australians are basically pale Niggers with gay British accents.

Vest said...

Scumbag. you are using the same worn out adage.

Ping. You Pong, get well soon.

Mean B B. Try Euthanasia it will help you heaps.

Kristen. Surely pretty girls are not that ugly in your neck of the woods, no apoligies.

Huneeb. Some girls from Kansas Have four legs.

Crabcake. Yes there are times when I can be mean. that chick is pure ugliness.

Vest said...

Anonymous. You have been deleted, no need for filth.

Scumbag. You started this fiasco, how about you apoligising?

Jiggs. NO and No.

PBC. I am not Australian, I am Happy but not Gay. Why are you bagging gay people.
For the record, I have five sons, nine G/Ch and three G/G Children, Legally married for 53 years.

I hope you are all enjoying your Spring weather, In my part of OZ we are into the Fall (Autumn) and enjoying colder winds from the South.

Vest said...

Thanks Gordon, closing down until tomorrow. My advice is marry her for the house and work on it from there, see you soon.

BadGod said...

Vest stinks and I don't like him.

And I don't even 'know' that annabella chick. I will not tolerate blog hatred. Period. She is a human and deserves respect.
You will go over to the wedding party and say you are sorry.

You are so lucky the blogsnob died of a brain tumor or he'd be all up in your shit right now.

Is that ok, Scumbag? My heart is just not in this today.

BadGod said...

By the way, this is a stupid fuckin' blog.

SignGurl said...

Why would you say something so rude to Annabella? You wouldn't like it if some foreigner made snide comments about your daughter or granddaughter.

Shame on you especially if you really are that old!

Pilliard dickle. Sorry I am unable to help you and your preDICKIMENT, Check yourself in to your local health professional. Take Ozzie porker along with you, it seems you have similar Simpleton Symptoms. (D) means your next call will be deleted.

weatherman said...

vest go back to school, the warmer winds come from the south not cold winds you windbag.

Vest said...

weatherman. Sorry to have to disappoint you, most people in the Northern hemisphere realise Australia is in the Southern hemisphere, therefore our coldest winds come up from the South; Antarctica. Have a nice day and dont let your boss hear about this Mr weatherman.

vest say's, its nice to be right.

kitty said...

Mr Vest.. or should I say Mr Cool.. I have much admiration for you, for an older guy you have guts.

tshsmom said...

Good grief, here we go again!!

Vest said...

tshsmom. It does not take much effort to create an avalanche.

There is the silence of age, too full of wisdom for the tongue to utter everything in words; intelligible to those who have not lived the great range of life.
To my detractors. I only delight in silence if the remarks made by others are true.

gordon said...

Hi vesty -ill go to the jan archives now
