Cable ties galore, magpie delight!

Same ride, same road, same maggie - BUT totally different outcomes!!!!!

...still...you'd have to admit, it would be tempting to descend rapidly with your little banshee screeches onto this ugly contraption!!!!!

Most interestingly though, my darling's latest tactic to avoid the marauding Moobi maggie is to cycle excessively closely to me because then the discerning Moobi maggie remains on the telegraph wire above & just fixes his beady eye on my beloved 'numpty' in the sideways fashion of a scornful bird ...

'Good thinking, 99'


  1. Check todays Herald Sun at http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/more-news/dont-make-eyes-at-magpies-this-swooping-season/story-fn7x8me2-1226135193451
    "experts" (for once I like them) say that wearing a helmet makes you more likely to be attacked by a magpie! Apparently they mistake humans dressed as cyclists for creatures from another planet. Finally someone sees the world the way I have for years. Lovin' it!

  2. Somewhat scientific proof that the helmets themselves are the problem

  3. Ha! ha! Alan & Kerry! - magpies are clearly good judges of character!!!!
