Boddington: The adventure continues...

Angus Holly Boddington: A short history - A.H. Boddington or "Boddington" as he prefers was born on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. He was born on the same date as the famous Scottish Bard Robert Burns (January 25th). He is a Highland cow that comes from a small pasture in Minginish.

Never one to be content with chewing cud or talking politics with the other bovine, Boddington decided to make a name for himself by being the first Highland Cow to ever make a world tour. So with his mind made up; quick as a bug, he hopped into a box bound for America and ended up in a small store called "The Scottish Country Shop" where he sat on a shelf and was eventually donated to charity. He was placed into a cute basket with some candies and treats.

Although this was nice for a time, it was never what Boddington longed for, which was the open road. Luck would have it that Boddington met Mike (bagpypr) and Toni at the auction and they took him home. Boddington has a love for bagpipes, so it was fate when he met up with this chap named Mike. Mike is a member of the Portland Police Highland Guard, in Portland Oregon. Mike took Boddington for a ride in his Solstice and let's just say the rest is history. Boddington went for many rides in Bagpypr's GXP.

Bagpypr has a dog named Holly. Boddington and Holly got along famously. Boddington took "Holly" for his middle name. This was mainly due to Holly, being a German Sheperd, was too big to ride in the Solstice, so as homage to Holly, he took the middle name of "Holly" so that in a way, Holly would get to go wherever Boddington went.

bye boddington, enjoy your new home

Boddington was present for the Orygun Run 07', where he met Purangl in her PURE Solstice. Now Boddington was very loyal to his new friend Mike; however friendship only goes so far when a pretty las offers to take you to new places in her Solstice! So like that, old Mike is history and off Boddington goes to his next adventure with PurAngl. STAY TUNED!

Aribest Boddington!

I belive you have to be a supporting member to accomplish this. I'm not sure where on the forum you find this info, but I have read on some thread about the supporting member levels, how to become one and what you are able to do with various levels of membership.

You already have the pics uploaded. Supporting member status allows uploading direct from your own computer. If you use the links at the bottom of a pic, such as the one I have included, allyou will get is a clickable link. See the following example.
http://www.putfile.com/pic.php?img=5340483

<a href="http://www.putfile.com/pic.php?img=5340483" target="_blank"><img src="http://img1.putfile.com/thumb/4/11813301046.jpg" alt="Click to enlarge"></a> Now look at ( I am sure you already have) at your previous post I have editted and see the format of the pic's address.

So instead once you have opened your pic in teh size you wish, right-click it, select properties, highlight and copy teh complete address of the pic and paste that into your post. You can either use the "insert image" icon or simply type the following [ i m g ] and [ / i m g ] before and after th elink

BTW, Boddington appears to be truning up his nose at that brew, he might prefer a Innis and Gunn.

Boddinton Heads for Nationals

...but first, time for a BBQ with the Arizona Sky and Solstice Club. As always when an out of state visitor stops by we have a meet. Boddington joined us at Talking Stick for a gourmet BBQ, drinks and dancing. 12 members of the club came out to meet Boddinton and share some dinner and libation. It seems that Boddington is a cute cuddly Bull ....


As we found out he has a wilder side.


So Boddington leaves for Nashville with us at 6:00AM Monday....

Phoenix Sky & Solstice Club NASSM2013 Event
2006 Red Solstice - parked
2007 Blue Solstice - Debbie's replacement for totaled 06
2006 White Solstice - Son's DD...needs work
