Off topic question: what's everyone using for photo-sharing these days, site-wise? Flickr definitely seems to have fallen from political favor.

It's Pumpkin. I'm a tall, broad-shouldered guy, but, umm... Mango's too big. When he stands on his back paws and stretches up, his front paws reach my belt. That's about 42 inches.

I've been off the green potato's for a while. Took this today after my first real ride in around 17 months after spinal fusion. I'm with Pugsely the Peugeot and Alfie the 33.

I'm about 10kg's heavier than my last ride along the River Torrens.

Yes ... this is a selfie.




If you click the photo, you can see some of the earlier attempts to get this photo, complete with a description. Anyone watching the earlier attempts would have been rolling on the lawn laughing. We were!!

And ... if you're interested ... I can tell you how I finally got this photo above.
