    Taihape has never been the same since they stopped people riding their horses into the Gretna.

    Yep, more than likely Screamer as he had a habit of doing that.
    I was in the New Taihape pub one night he did it much to everyone's humor.
    God I miss that pub.
    What a waste sticking new world on that site!

    It's still in the liquor laws that if you show up to a pub they legally have to provide you with a hitching post and a pail of water.... Could have fun doing that in auckland

    I am glad I don't have to go to that New World. What confusing signage that is. There is one drive way that say you can enter but not enter and exit but not exit. How do you get in and out? Ha ha ha ha.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I guess you are at the age where that could be confusing.

    Yep! I get flustered these days trying to decide whether to add milk to my Weetbix or Weetbix to my milk. Ha ha ha ha.

    I talked with the owner and he said he was forced to do it.
    With the influx of Aucklanders buying up the cheap housing they were having an increase of near miss incidents from the lack of common sense and normal car park etiquette due to the lack of signage....apparently one couple were so confused with how to get out they called AA Roadside Assist
