Does that have something to do with being overly concerned with formal rules and trivial points of walking? giggle

Hi, Rox! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
(Oh good - cuz I didn't know ... and neither did my Dictionary.)
I'm sooo happy! whenever someone else makes typos! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Speaking for myself... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] I appreciate
you risking life and 'limb' (get it!? yuk-yuk!)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]Tater made me do it!
Anyway - great photo! Thanks!
Some people are sooo fussy... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

AND... (Hah! Like I was finished. )[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I'm "that way" because I was raised
in a household where words were very ! important.
I majored in English... therefore ... I feel I've explained myself.

I had a very "old school" English teacher in high school ... one of those librarian-types ... a real stickler for proper use of the language. Yes, she's rolling in her grave right now ... seeing what I do to the language! giggle

Sorry Roxy, I wasn't pointing out a typo, in fact, I didn't even really take notice. I had heard of the word pedantic, but didn't really know what it means. I still don't, even after I looked it up; I think I need a better dictionary!

Anyway, those people were quite rude, trying to drive while you were busy taking a picture!

ok Tater....
according to the ''The Macquarie Dictionary and THESAURUS ''
pedant n-1 affected person 2 bore 3 intelectual 4 precisionist 5 teacher.
in this case i would say 2 and 4 : a boring precisionist.
he may also have a Jesus complex and wants to save people.or maybe he was just simply catastrophising,or trying out his new horn.so ,now for the profile..a boring catatrophising prescisionist saviour of man/womankind with a new horn.or somebody who didn't want to run over somebody else. angel

Well they certainly seem to fit that definition!
Nice picture though; I didn't imagine South Oz having so many trees, with such a dry climate.

That is such a pretty scene! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Somebody evidently didn't appreciate it as much as you, if you were being
beeped at.

here we do have some rain in winter,albeit we are getting less and less,and the native trees need very little .In much of central oz it rains maybe once in 5 years.some gum nuts are so hardy they need fire to open their seed pods.
this picture is in the Adelaide hills, which gets more rain than the plains,and this winter we had quite a lot of it,for here .
i don't know what sort of trees the ones in the picture are.
