Lap Pool

The superb January worsts continue. To think I was wondering in December that worsts had been exhausted.  This from Natalia Fan #1. Raglan Road North Perth. I notice Bubby J isn’t treading the full 50 meters. Yeah, suck that up. Even I could walk a 5 metre pool and run a mile. He seems to be a little uncertain. “Whoa, no wait, I got it, whoops, wait a second, no, I’m doing it now, just give me, wait, no, I’m definitely your lord, whoops, I’m sinking, no I’m not…” This is pure insanity.

    Not very buff, is he?

    Is anyone else having trouble viewing this site? Everything is chopped up, in the wrong spot and in the wrong font.

    Pity you cropped out the slip n slide I assume he’s running towards.

    Yeah lap pool JC is funny. But to more important matters. I am beyond consolation that I did not manage to get a pic of the Oswals before they bravely ran away. An hysterical piece in the Sunday Crimes revealed the intent by neighbours to pop the champagne corks when the last removalist truck pulled out of the Dalkieth street. Classy bit of journalism that.

  7. Bag O Turnips, there are 3 cars for you to identify on my (real) photo site. One has bullet holes in it.

      The one with lichen all over the bonnet is a Falcon panel van, from the XD-XF era. The Texan hearse is a late 70s Chevrolet Caprice and the one you think that is a Cadillac indeed is (that’s their badge logo on the hubcap), though I’m unsure exactly which (have little clue about yank tanks except the ones Holden/Ford Chrysler/AMC locally assembled in the 60s and 70s; my forte is about vehicles that have appeared on Australian roads in at least small quantities).

      • I’m not sure which ones you mean. Yes the panel van, but the other two were on the front page. I meant the hillman hunter with bulletholes in it and the one peeking out of the shed. A morris of some kind?

          Yes, the second picture is definitely a Hillman Hunter.

          The last is most likely either an Austin A60, Austin Freeway (a six-cylinder version of the A60) or a Wolseley 24/60 (basically a luxury version of the Freeway). My great-grandpop had both of the latter cars, with the Freeway as a road-going concern, whereas the Wolseley was cannibalised for parts. These were BMC’s half-baked answer to the Big Three’s challengers in the early-to-mid 60s and needless to say, they weren’t at all successful, especially when you had the contemporaneous (and wildly popular) EJ/EH Holden, Valiant S-series and AP5 and the XL/XM Falcon to wrest sales from.

            And the Falcon panel van, upon further examination, can be narrowed down to being either an XD or XE, owing to the black dashboard with a protruding box where the gauges are (the XF had either beige or grey dashes, with a slightly more fluid design incorporating binnacle switches).

            From that angle and not having anything else to go by, it’s impossible to discern which one it exactly is.

    I think this may be a practice pool. It’s round the back, near the bins.
    This is where JC puts in the hard yards.
    You don’t just walk on water without hours of training under your belt.
    Like Philippe Petit training for his twin tower walk

    Lived across the road from this church years back, pre-Lap Pool days. Some kind of breakaway Church of Christ outfit I think, run by an American pastor called something like Tommy etc III Jnr; used to make a right racket with the rock bands and glossolalia all times of day and night, and would regularly bring over gift hampers to butter me up. Eventually they installed some very costly looking sound-proofing.

    Matthew 14:22-33, which makes no mention of chlorine, or Ross’s Salvage’s tiles – both of which appear to have been used here extensively. How is it the Son of God can walk on water, but not cause unto it to be kept bug-free and tastefully bedizened?

    This is absolutely brilliant – I kept having to go back to look at it every couple of hours just to make sure it was still there . Shouldn’t someone sneak in and put a long balancing pole across his hands?
