Whilst waiting at the airport to fly home, I thought I'd jump on the site to see what hogwash had been written about the run - and it was there in abundance!!!!

I'll add more tomorrow at home, but it has not yet been written that Neddie boy bitched like crazy that his drinks (bacardi and lollywater) were far too strong - even though I checked one in his absence (sorry about the dribble in your drink, Ned :( ) and found I could hardly taste any alcohol in them at all!!! :shock: :shock:

And then there was Dino wussing around the place with sheila's drinks half the time, and don't get me started on Buck!!! :roll: :roll:

Surprise, surprise, but my luggage actually travelled with me. :shock: Which some of the other Virgin Blue passengers on my flights couldn't claim......

Buck, I was only checking the barrels were empty. :D AND I had several credits on the day, AND about 11 hours of trying to keep up with Pussasan the day before. :(

A good run in Siddeney, but I may leave it a while before I get into it again and let the liver regenerate. (In 10 days time Graham Johnson, another Chippy mate from Gove arrives for a few days R&R - heaven help me).

Good to see all you blokes again, and it just reinforced how great the bond between old sailors really is. :!:

Sorry it's taken so long Gang... Apart from the demands of my new job, trying
to crop, correct and cull 87 photos down to 60 and then upload them at 5 per
upload, is to say the least, PAINFULL...! #-o However, recalling the day's fun
with each photo uploaded took away the tedium...! \:D/

:type: Click on the photo for a BLOW :shock: UP of all who made it a TOP day... :thumbright:

Image

Yeah, yeah, O.K. :roll: so I cloned Sue into the back row, because she'd already left to hook up with
20-odd Mounted Policewomen celebrating a Hen's Day, but she DID rejoin us again later...!
[-X


Clicking :type: HERE will take you into the :partyman: 5th Annual RAN Skilled
Hands Sydney Rocks Xmas Pub Crawl Smokey Album
... ENJOY...! :finga:

As was mentioned earlier, the weekend started off with the 'Basin Trial' at
the Frisco on Friday night... :drinkers:

Image

Whilst Col's 'Surrogate Illegitimate Daughter' Sue had to share her time
between two Pub Crawls, she made up for it by 'reporting in' each of her
drinks to us...! :finga:

Image

Dino, checks out the route map before we set off... :thumbright:

Image

Brian and Ilona, decide to join us for the first 5 pubs before leaving us to
board the P&O Cruise Ship 'Pacific Sun' voyaging to the Melbourne Cup... :notworthy:

Brian, Ilona and Jak all scored extra bonus points for actually connecting up
in Melbourne at the Cup on Tuesday and ringing me to check in...! :shock:

Image

Chris (left) had come all the way from Cairns for the event, Steve, from the
South Coast... :prayer:

Image

Whilst it appeared that Henry still thought he was driving up from Canberra...! :rolleyes:

Image

Glen's wife Justina showed great staying power to remain on the soft drinks
all day, while Glen got stuck into it with the boys... :drinkers:

Image

Ned, Mark and Rick strut their stuff in the RAN Skilled Hands rig of the day... \:D/

Image

While Dino is happy to strut his stuff, pole :shock: dancing for Sue...

Image

But don't stop there, get into the :type: photo album and check out ALL :shock: 60
of the photos... \:D/

When you get there, click on a :type: thumbnail to view a photo, click on the
:type: photo to view the BLOW :shock: UP... :finga:

I'd like to thank ALL those who participated, making this the BIGGEST :shock: YET,
particularly those like Chris, Ned, Shep, Howie, Glen, Justina, Brian, Ilona and
Henry, who between them, travelled THOUSANDS of kilometres to join us, and
I'd especially like to thank Col and Buck for taking the pressure off me by taking
all of the photos of the day that you'll see in the gallery... :notworthy:

[-o< (Sorry Col and Buck, but I had to be ruthless to cull them down to arrive at 60,
leaving out any less than perfect shots...!)
:dontknow:

Well spotted Buck... :thumbright:

Cloning Sue in on the 480 pixel wide photo in the post looked O.K., but was a bit too obvious in the 950 pixel BLOW :shock: UP... [-(

For those of you who delighted in my being awarded a 'YELLOW :bs: CARD'
for getting the Australian and the Glenmore mixed up, you'll be happy to
know, I've corrected the Mud :evil3: Map, also adding this year's group photo...!

Image

I've also cranked :type: out the first of the Certificates of Achievement... :shock:

Image

That'll keep SeeJay and Jak happy, I'll get to the rest over the weekend... :thumbright:

No kiddin Buck,
You missed your calling - you shouldn't have paid off - you should have have transferred to the Dockyard Wallopers and done the 'silk shirt' course (Investos). With questions like those you would have passed easily except you failed to caution Rick first.
