A charity bikini car wash we organised to raise money for my brothers expensive neurological cancer surgery. Only in his mid thirty's, he is already fighting his 3rd cancer. His prognosis is less than 10 years due to cancer in his bone marrow. He most likely won't even make it to my age of 45 without this surgery.

These girls all worked their butts off in 30C heat for over 4hrs for someone they don't even know. We love them all for it!

To help you can go here Graeme Tumour Surgery Costs - Help Please by Graeme Ardern Tumour Appeal - GoFundMe (http://www.gofundme.com/7io08)
- photos taken Sun Sep 8, Lawnton, Brisbane, Qld

Note: So sorry I haven't been around much lately folks. I've had a lot on recently, including this car wash and other things happening.

Thanks Marko.

These girls were fantastic! Up until that day our hottest temp this spring was about 26 c or so ... this day was at least 30c (some say much higher) and hotter on the cement of course. The girls just kept on sponging, hosing and buffing, they were outstanding, as were the other people that helped out in other ways on the day.

We are a long way off the necessary money yet so we have another 1 or 2 of these planned along with charity dinners, garage sales and other stuff. I've taken on extra shifts at work as well so it's all go, go, go lately. Not much, (pretty much none) time left for ph.ca right now though :(

They weren't all nude ... some were wearing some lovely garments of blonde, brunette and redhead! :)

I think you're wrong MA,,,,doesn't look like they worked their butts off to me.

Again, best wishes to your brother. Let him know people all over the world are rooting for him.

http://www.mtbdirt.com.au/_files/09surprized.gif Really? People are off doing that for him? What a strange, but cool way to show support. Does this mean I can tell my wife we need to do it more ... for charity http://www.mtbdirt.com.au/_files/09drool.gif

ROOTING... not rutting!!! I think there was a bit lost in the translation between english and Austrailian. Rooting = cheering on = hoping = applaud = exalt = commend = hail= honor = urging on = giving support to. A good laugh though. Very funny. But go ahead and tell your wife...whatever works.

:) It actually used to mean the same here ... but rarely gets used that way now because ... well ... most of us simply think of 'rooting' as ... well ... you know ... bumping uglies :shrug:

Quite an interesting set of photos. My favourite is the one where Orange Bikini is reacting to getting sprayed with the hose. Love the reaction you caught.

First of all MA. I don't believe you should even think of apologizing to those of us here for your absence. Most everyone here knows you that you and your family/friends are going through some very rough times as of late. There is no need at all to feel that you are letting someone down by your absence. To me, your absence here speaks volumes, in that we all know you are spending countless hours being with, and supporting your family through all this. You and your family need this time and involvement in all these events to help each other out through all of this.

Now, as for the photos. Love them all. Especially the candid un-posed shots. Love the water spray action one especially, and as you said, the little boys interaction with the young lady in the green bikini.
Looks like you had a good turn-out for this, and heres hoping that the next one turns out even better.

Thank you HBG, Ed and Bambi :)

Well Bambi ... we could get some Mankini's happening for your car! :)

Actually, we have been offered a young guy who's apparently 'Ripped' and 'hot' for the next one ... we'll have to see :)

Hey I'm just telling you what my wife was offered ... whether she'll take them up on the offer I don't know. She's got me remember? Why would she want some young buck she'd have to train all over again?

Maybe it'd be like a sports car - something fun, but not a daily driver. :laughing:
