I think as you get older you mellow but others have told me it`s just that you give a dam anymore. I do know that time changes with age, Weeks go very quickly but it takes twice as long now to do things. I also see the funny side of of this joke better now.
They say that owners begin to look like their animals after a while, but could the opposite be true ?
Well I can still take my sunrise photos in the morning while having my first coffee.
When it`s cloudy it looks like this, but still worth seeing.

I seem to have collected a lot of different email addresses over the years, most have only been used once. I found a list in a book and tried to log on to them but providing all the security info is such a bind.As for blogs they seem to dissapear very quickly as the blog sites re-organize. So many have gone from the SA scene because they are now pay only or become private.at least i found an old photo I was looking for, that`s the advantage of putting photos on a blog site.I must have inavertantly deleted this one.
This was Mikes first fast bike, also a triumph, but single engined.As for email addresses, I`m just going to sign on for some new ones and write the password down :-)
I always like to finish with a bit of color. Sunrise.
And not very colorful Sunset.

When Mike and Nevile Bramley were the leading lights in the `Hells Angels` in Jo`berg. Mike had a customizing. shop and Nevile had the `Pink panther`. Mike had a bike that he made himself that was used on the `Rainbow Strip` and it was the fastest thing around. There was a photo of it on an earlier blog.
This belonged to a new member who hadn`t got his colors yet.
What brought this on was being in town today and seeing the wake of one of our local bikers who had been with the Mak`s for many years. It was quite a turnout and even the main street was blocked off by the local police. I`ve put a few photos on the blog but the rest are on Facebook. I tried to make an album but not being very knowledgeable in Facebook it didn`t work. There is still about 30 photos of the event on my page. Keith William
I used to drive around the Dam every weekend and very often would find a lot of `Hells Angels` out on their weekend drive. Although not a member I was accepted and had many interesting coffee breaks.I still remember the `Viking` as he wore a hemet with horns on it.
This was taken near the Hartebespoort Dam near Jo`berg in the early 60`s. BSA A65 how Time fly`s !

I thought this was a new craze that my youngest daughter got me into, but it seems to have been around for a few years. I finally got signed up on http://www.geocaching.com .
We found three in the first few hours and had a great time. It is very good for people who don`t get out much as there is quite a bit of walking. A while ago I did a blog on Metal Detecting which is also exciting at times. Being a very keen photographer both hobbies get me taking even more photos.
This one I found without much of a problem but it was just a log sheet in an aluminum tablet tube.
This one was very interesting as it had a log book and many little trinkets in. The packaging was very professional as the owner only comes over from the UK every 2 years. If he doesn`t come soon the box will be full.
This one was a bit more difficult as there were a lot of old machines around the plot. the trouble was that we spent a long time going round and round this one looking in all the difficult spaces but in the end it was in a very simple place.There were some very small kiddies plastic toys and a log sheet in a plastic pill box.
These pictures were taken with an old Alcatel, The smart phone was needed to get the GPS app which can be downloaded from the App store for free. Happy Hunting.

I have found out in a very short time from friends that Facebook is not the place to put a blog. the main thing is that people don`t read them as they are probably to hard to find unless you have 100 friends. Also when asking family members they tell me that it`s mostly getting as many likes and friends as you can, that is the status.I found it difficult as things always seemed to pop up in the wrong place.They tell me it`s just old age and it`s really for youngsters to brag on how good their life is, even if it`s only in cyber space ;-) I find it useful for finding companies as most of them have a page.
There was another march on the police station today, with it`s Brass Band which could be heard from the other end of Town.
the Cougel was back again today, I think it`s a youngster as it`s a bit smaller that the last pair. Latter today they cut the hedge below the wall so we may get less birds now.
I still like to put the sunrise on the blog while I still can, as we may be forced to leave soon if the place is sold by the owner.
If you are a cat lover do you have one of these on your wall ?
I still haven`t found out what this plant is. the flowers are bellow and are very similar to lavender. i have some more coming up now at the back of the plant bed and they look like weeds.
That`s one way to take the family out, and save fuel. I think even our trafic cops would notice a bit of overloading on this bike. I hope it`s not a 50cc or he will need a push start.

it`s funny but the older you get the more you want to forget birthdays. Unfortunately when you have kids and grand kids this is impossible. it`s also usual to get things that are immediately useful on these days. This year was a little different because we have quite a lot of power outages now, so the only thing you can do is read. I was given a nice large rechargeable lamp which not only has 5 settings for the LED`s but can also be charged with the solar panel provided. I can now charge my phones either from the lamp battery or solar power.
As well as this lamp I got a small battery operated one that clips on the page of the book plus lots of eats and some new t-shirts. so this year was an eye opener and I got all useful presents. so maybe life isn`t too bad in the golden Years. :-)
I had to put this one in just to show the veiw I wake up to, for those who haven`t seen my blog before.
This is what it looks like most times when I go out on the Whale Watching boat.
When you can remember this a legal tender and could still buy something with it, you know you are old. :-)
There are still a lot of birds frequenting the garden and make very interesting animations.
I still love these stills that were taken with a time lapse setting.
This was taken at the Wolf Sanctuary when I last went there. When I saw this I thought of the old saying` Dog in a Manger ` although it`s not a dog it did make me smile.
