Tony,
You're not familiar with the life's work of that esteemed scribe and humorist Mr. J Clarke esq. (aka F Dagg) ?

Doc G , I am not in the habit of playing "tit for tat" but simply prefer to say it like it is. Those captions are such a lame attempt at humour they miss the mark by a country mile. Totally inane. The article comes across as if they have just arrived from Mars and have little understanding...

Just arrived back from the Lake last night. There was 10mm of rain on the lake on the Sat night before speedweek. That delayed proceedings until Tuesday afternoon when the course was opened up for racing. Some additional showers followed that day but licensing passes were run for new competitors. Fu...

Just open the email today.

Greatly saddened by this news Dave was a good friend. Shared many good times with Dave. Most memorable was the trip to the Lake with Dave in 2006. Many other fond memories.

Condolences to the Dooley family. :cry: :cry: :cry:

Doc, Glad to hear you're up and about again. Never like to see a good man down. :wink:

Some of those hospital procedures really make you cringe, particularly when they start sticking bits up your fundamental orifices.
