T IS FOR - TOURIST TROPHY, ISLE OF MAN TT


John McGuiness

ABC - Tourist Trophy, Isle Of Man TT. I had something else planned but unfortunately not able to access the images presently and well you read yesterday's post, others matters to see too.


This is the image that I had printed on a T.shirt and was wearing during the TT. Now you know.

Next time I do the TT I will tell you all about Homestay and how not to get ripped off during the event. Click here to see my sales and magazine photos of the TT from earlier posts.

Want to join ABC got the lovely hostess with the mostest, MRS NESBITT'S PLACE

Kim said...

A fun photo. Sorry to hear about your friend. I hope he can find something that will allow him to continue with his wonderful artwork. Sorry about your laptop too, I hope it feels better soon.

Tanya said...

Great photo of course! Isn't it amazing how low they can get without actually falling off?!
It's so hard to capture something that moves so quickly. When we go to the races I end up with hundreds of photos with nothing in it because the cars have already driven out of the screen!

Wooooottt woooott! Great photo!

And I did told you once I was playing an arcade game like this!

Liz said...

Is that what TT stands for?! Wonderful photo.

Cloudia said...

Aloha from Waikiki-

Nice photo and information on the TT.

I hope something else turns up soon for Gary; he is a talented artist.

To stop action like you have in this photo is truly a gift.

Thank you for the comment on my time, seasons, pond post, I do appreciate it very much. This is a wonderful photo and it made me remember years ago of a certain young woman who used to ride a little honda motorcycle until she hits some stones and took a spill. I believe she might still have a scar from picking the stones out of her legs. Nothing major, just enough to cure her of riding..LOL

Great photo capture, and perfect choice for the letter T.

bitingmidge said...

I guess this is one of those silver lining moments - we get to see some great older photos.

Being in a not dissimilar position (except my laptop's still working) here's wishing you all the best through the next bit of bumpyness.

Cheers!

antigoni said...

Excellent ABC post and My world, too.

Miss_Yves said...

Oh ! I 'd like to see this photo printed on your T-shirt!

Aileni said...

I mean - what else could you post. Excellent.

mrsnesbitt said...

So sorry to hear about Gary's job stuff. It is the BBC who are losing out! I truly hope something will turn up.
Hugs to you both.

The TT races are certainly a national event here.

Brad, Boston said...

Lb,

No other TV Company? I have seen the TT On cable. Looks too dangerous for me. Kudos!

Bibi said...

I'm not a big motorcycle race fan, but I am always fascinated how low the drivers take themselves on turns...oooh.

Re: your q what kids here do at Christmas, it's just that they've already rec'd presents (from him) on New Year's and on Serbian Christmas on the 7th, there are special traditions (stay tuned!) one respects within the home.

No prizes for this letter. I am so sorry to read below of your partner's job loss. It is happening here in Bath too. I appreciate there is not another job like his on the island unless you know someone. The BBC should scrap rubbish tv programs and use that money for his salary. I'll email them and tell them too.

Best to you both.

stitchwort said...

Great photo.
The TT must be a somewhat mixed blessing for residents of the island.
Best wishes for something to turn up for Gary.

M said...

I hate the BBC. Mr Barker is really clever. I like your photos.

Reader Wil said...

I do hope that Gary will soon get work! It's awful to lose a job let alone at a time of economical crises. Thanks for your visit.

laxeylass said...

Email sent. Best of luck. Word is out.

Rose said...

An interesting T post! I do hope things will look up for you and your partner very soon.

mannanan said...

Perfect T......What else but TT.....Great picture as well.

Laurie said...

Vrrrroooooom! What a great shot mid-zoom.

kml said...

Very interesting! First heard about them from Mrs Nesbitt!

Bear Naked said...

Hi there!
Love your island,
just received my hubby's Christmas
presents from Duke's :-)
If you are ever up at windy corner, check a post up there for a small brass plaque, we put it there just a few year's ago it was long over due....

VP said...

Somehow T couldn't stand for anything else on your blog!

VP said...

Just read through some of your other posts and I'm touched that you found time to visit when you're world's turning upside down.

My husband's gone through redundancy 3 times and each time something far better has just been round the corner. I do hope the same happens for your corner of the world.
