G'day mates! We decided to take Ranger on a bit of an adventure today!
See, we live in rural Australia, so we thought we'd show Ranger the country side, a bit of bush living, with some paddock bashing!
Paddock bashing is when you drive around a farm in an old car... Well, we couldn't find an old car, but we found this bonzer ute! (Ute is what we call a "pick-up" in Australia, it's short for utility).
We're not sure who's idea it was to let Floyd drive... He was being a "drongo" (silly) and wasn't paying attention, and we got "bogged". (That's what we call it when your car gets stuck in the mud).
After getting us bogged, Floyd was a bit of a "bludger" (lazy) and Ranger and I do all the hard "yakka" (work) digging the car out of the mud... Lucky we're terriers! We had the ute out in no time!
Once we got out of the mud Floyd drove us on to some higher ground... It was a pretty rough ride, and we're pretty sure Floyd taught himself how to drive... Strike a light (gee whizz) it was a bumpy ride!
Poor Ranger started feeling crook (sick) he looked like he was about to chunder (throw-up)!!
Since Ranger was looking a bit green, we decided to shoot through (head home) and said hooroo (goodbye) to the bush.
Floyd insisted we stop at the servo (service or petrol station) to buy a "dog's eye" (meat pie) with "dead horse" (tomato sauce)... Ranger and I didn't feel like eating anything for a while... Not after Floyd's driving!
(It didn't help that he spent most of the time looking out the window, instead of where he was driving!)
Stop by tomorrow for our special Australia Day post! Woohoo!!
Also, don't forget, tomorrow is the LAST DAY to submit your competition photos!
