Also know how PASSIONATE you kiwis are about your Rugby, as are we, and friendly banter is part and parcel of normal life when it comes to Rugby. I am enjoying the build up to the match here this weekend. Just been and had Wilkinson and a 10 put on the back of my Lions shirt!!!! As isaid I am not taking sides but rather can see both sides and just wanted to say that its OK for a wee bit of friendly banter. The digression doesn't bother me either.
Take Care all
Sunshine as much as Im a rugby fan I have to admit that I really dont follow too much English Rugby & Im not familiar with your Johnny Wilkinson although I have heard mention of him. I used to follow english rugby in the days of Will Carling etc. Your Lions shirt sounds cool & I bet when you wear it your really proud of it too My favourite All Black is leaving NZ to play rugby in Leeds as he is nearing the end of his playing days. However I will still follow the Tests closely & will come up with a new favourite player sooner or later. For now keeping this thread in mind I will now post a photo of two of my all time favourite Kiwi rugby players..........

Yes Shepslady, looks like we are alone in our fun! Nobody else gets it, which either makes us a bit weird... or them a bit... you know...

To the rest of you, OK then I'll shut up now, but seriously for a minute... we are both just having a little fun. There are no insults here, no nastiness, no intention to hurt of upset. This is just how Kiwis do humour. The two of us get it, nobody else seems to.

Now, if it was me, I would be mentally noting this. If I were going to settle in another country, I would want to understand these things. Otherwise, I may take offence and cause needless pain to myself by taking offence were none was intended. This is part of becoming a Kiwi. Instead of just disapproving, you guys should take careful note and learn our ways.

Otherwise we'll get the cuzziebros to cook you all up with a bit of puha...

Anyway... photos:

Love this one but not familar with it so guess its a new addition since my last visit to Wellington in 2003. Great idea isnt it? Nothing nicer than wandering around the Wellington water front on a nice sunny day when the wind has decided to stay away too. Is this anywhere near Te Papa?

Mt Ruapehu steaming gently...



Another great photo. I remember travelling through this area a few years ago while the mountain was really blowing ash all over the area. The ground looked like it was covered in snow & our car looked like it was a light grey colour instead of its normal Black

I would also like to say that it was by mutual agreement that KJP & I decided to stop having fun with our friendly bantering. On that note I must publically aplaud my friend for his great posting announcing that our bantering will stop. i couldnt have worded it better myself.

KJP keep these photos coming you are taking me on a personal trip down memory lane & I love it.

(Caroline makes a mental note to stuff extra handbags into her container just in case this is a typical NZ handbag! :scared: )
LMAO @ your post Caroline.
Despite what you might have told about NZ living in the dark ages etc it really isnt true. So just for you I will post some bags made in NZ, all leather & in some of my favourite colours.....(Check out the red & black one..he he he!!)

For Shepslady - a photo of Jonny Wilkinson - Is the Man gorgeous or what!

Not too bad at Rugby either - not that that would matter _ he'd still be gorgeous! (Mates with David Beckham too - another GORGEOUS British Sportsman!)



Ahhhh - Was pleasure to hold his Brolly for him last wek whilst he signed his autograph for me......

thanks for that Sunshine. Not too bad but I will still stick with Justin Marshall


Will however make a special point of keeping an eye out for Mr Wilkinson for you I can imagine how special it must have been for you to hold his brolly

It's in Frank Kitts Park, halfway between Te Papa and Queens Wharf.

We used to go to the top and then head down to the crater lake... there was a time when you could waterski on that lake! The had helicoptered in some Zodiacs. All gone now, just a sulphurous pit these days.

I would also like to say that it was by mutual agreement that KJP & I decided to stop having fun with our friendly bantering. On that note I must publically aplaud my friend for his great posting announcing that our bantering will stop. i couldnt have worded it better myself.

Awwww shucks...

Plenty more to come...
