Victory Boulevard, Ashburton

I was going through some old receipts recently, and noticed the above address of the business.
It was an unexpectedly interesting visit for me when we picked up the goods.
You can either check out Google maps, or hit this link, to see why:

Or maybe it's a place where you purchase supplies for your pet worm. Tiny sweaters, tiny worm toys, etc. :wasntme: Love the street names in this neighborhood. :thumbsup:

Is picking up worms similar to catching crabs ?

More likely its Australias space port - where you can buy worm holes? (Bransoms a bit too late to catch that market methinks).

Tangent flying again....

Anybody else had this happen? This is the second time in the last 3 months for me :doh:

I was trying to say that Dave(M)'s response serves me right, for deliberately picking the wrong part of the image, as I do so often. :agree:

Has anyone noticed the real reason I posted the map?

Paul,
You're the recipient of your Observer's badge! :thumbsup:

Brian,
You nearly earned yours by saying that you love the street names in the area, but your report omitted that this was the reason for my interest. :doh:

Chris,
It's just not cricket, old boy! :lol:

I was just amazed at how many houses are packed in like Sardines. No room to swing a bat.
