Quick need $5,000. via PayPal right now

Finally, my luck has changed. I just received this email.


Good Day,

My name is Sir Jack Parkinson, I work with the UK Lottery. I am soliciting
your assistance for a swift transfer of 4,528,000 GBP, should you be
willing to assist me in this project, you will be giving me just 40% of
your winnings. Just as a brief, due to my position in the company I can
make it happen that you would be a winner of the above stated

Naturally, every body would like to play a lottery if they are assured of
winning. I am assuring you today to be a winner, please do not take for
granted this once in a life time opportunity as we both stand to
collectively gain from this at the success of the transaction. Should you

secure e-mail:

Sir Jack Parkinson

naturally, I won't forget my friends. After I receive my funds transfer I think I will purchase that BMW K1300 GT for Jack rIEPE. He told me that ever since he saw a picture of this gorgeous beauty, he has been fantisizing about this magnificent machine. He actually has a picture of this bike under his pillow with drool stains.

And for Conchscooter, a new Triumph Bonneville, yes the one with the factory tach custom painted in Barbie Pink to match his KW pink crocs, with factory topcase in matching pink, of course. I intend to deliver it in person and request that he pump up his air mattress to await my arrival.

I also noticed that Sharon is enamoured in the Beemer K1200GT which she saw in TN last week at the MOA rally.

With all this money at my disposal I will finally be able to visit my blogging friends in Turkey: first a visit to Dave & Linda, to find out why they don't want us to know the secret about their paradise. Lately they have been posting detrimental things to keep us away, which means that it is too good to be true.

Then were are going to grab John by the scruff of his neck and drag him over to the Mayor's office and get the barriers for the scooter parking removed so there is easier access to the docks. And I must get a ride on the boat named "ship" .

I've never been to Wichita, KS but it seems to be a land of wheat and flat land with no mountains. I plan to fly JIM cpa3485 out to BC to see some of our mountains and tunnels

Right now it seems that Lance is MIA in a land of palm trees and sunshine. We will hire an investigator to locate him and return him to North Bend where he belongs.

And to Orin a new Vespa GTS super as a spare scoot to park in his garage just in case his trusty GTS fails him again. Yes, it's nice to have alternatives.

I'm going to have so much time to spend my money. I don't want to leave anyone out so please send your requests for your personalized "gifts" now.

In the meantime, I have to come up with $5,000. to pay the export lottery tax, so don't delay your paypal transfers. I need to send the funds before the end of the month.

  1. Hello my BESTEST friend in the entire world..I have read and re-read your blog and think you may have omitted a few details whilst mentioning Dave and I...
    BMW K1300 GT for Jack rIEPE
    for Conchscooter, a new Triumph Bonneville
    Sharon is enamoured in the Beemer K1200GT
    Orin a new Vespa GTS
    fly JIM cpa3485 out to BC to see some of our mountains and tunnels..
    Dave & Linda, they don't want us..detrimental,keep away!!!!
    Yours.. feeling very left out...Linda and David.....

  2. Very funny and humurous post...hope you find your $5 so you can fulfil your fanatasy with the fanthome money...
    HAVE Fun south of the border

  3. Bugger off. I'm sleeping on my aero bed as long as my wife's shoulder is in a sling. Besides if Sir Jack is keeping 60 percent of his four billion British pounds there won't be enough left over to buy my custom Bonneville (Now, if it was a Thruxton, perhaps I'd share the mattress with you).

  4. If Sharon gets a new bike, do you think I could have her old one? You and Sharon can talk it over. I have been checking out the specs on that F800ST. Might have to be my next acquisition someday.

    Thought I was the only one to get those types of emails.

  5. Bob, you are da man! Yes, please send reinforcements to get me - all this sun and fun is starting to make me rethink my life choices! Aloha!

  6. Bob,

    Thank you! Thank you! You are so generous! Thank you for my new bike.I hope delivery will be soon. I totally appreciate your thoughtfulness and keen observation regarding the bike of my dreams! I see I'm too late to send you funds via paypal to raise the $5000. I'm actually waiting for some prize money I won some time ago.

  7. Hey, Jim,

    If you're a good boy...maybe I'll let you have Jesse Owens. But we'd have to talk visitation rights!

  8. I believe "trusty" would not be the word to use to describe something that has repeatedly failed... I think the GTS would be the spare, and the 300 Super would be the primary ride.

    I'll let you know where to deliver it... ;)

    Scootin' Old Skool

  9. WOW....I could afford another electric fan lol..



  10. General comments to all:

    I didn't realize that money is the root of all evil. I thought that Linda and Dave would have been happy to see me. They feel that I have left them out because I did not purchase the Varadero for Dave with my non-existant funds.

    And I also thought Mr Conchscooter was very satisfied with his Bonneville. The fact that his got slightly damaged recently I was going to get him a new one, but NO he now wants a Thruxton. Now I have to visit the Triumph dealer to see one in the flesh.

    cpa3485 has his eye on Sharon's F800ST. Was Jim not satisfied enough with a trip to British Columbia to see our Tunnels and Bridges ?

    Breve: award gratefully received

    Lance: you are having so much fun being lost in Hawaii, so I think we will just stop the search and leave you there

    Sharon: I was hoping that you would enjoy your new Beemer superbike and keep the F800ST for those of us that fly out to visit you. Then we will have a bike to use while we were there. Sort of like a vistor's bike

    and Orin, right you are. The GTS super for your daily driver and with the GTS 250ie as your spare and perhaps a couple of spare new tires in the garage as standby.

    Dave: if it helps you to get dinner, I can find a way to get you another remote controlled fan. Anything to have peace and quiet in Turkey.

  11. Bob, you failed to mention this rare opportunity when I saw you in B'ham. Send me your email address and I'll get that PayPal xfr to you asap -:)))
