Howdy folks,
thank you! There's still enough way to ride along but the saddle starts fitting better and causes almost no pain any more.
I like the idea of learning something really from scratch (this is definitely fun)!
Thanks a lot for taking us greenhorns with you on the ride. Its good having found the way to the cattledrive...

Kind regards
Timo

(Did I see something red with antlers around the corner?)

Yepp, we've been seeing some stray raindeer these days. I'm pretty sure they'll have been rounded up by their rightful owner before the end of the year.

But I do remember seeing a couple of Alces Rubrum (Red Moose) in the Bi-Naw-Queue-Larz about a fortnight ago. We may see some of them again before long.

Yeah Katrina, go and get this red beast livin' in tough grounds!

As I am one of those who got their english solely from school, I don't quite get the meaning of "Bi-Naw-Queue-Larz". Does it mean "the cattledriver's sent in assignments queue"? Is it a wordplay and what does "Larz" stand for?
Sorry for my poor comprehension...

Sorry about the Bi-naw... etc.

It was supposed to be a drawling rendition of "binoculars"

Oh this is funny - don't stop writing this kinda stuff
(even if there's the risk you have to explain it from time to time to greenhorns like me)

Well done Timo, 2 down 2 to go.


I wish that for just one time, you could stand inside my shoes.<br />You'd know what a drag it is to see you.

Thanks Rory. As your horse seems to be taking the fast lane, we'll surely meet in the servlets section in no time at all.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
