With the condition /charlie was in, we were taking bets on whether he would sleep past his stop and end up (again) in Maitland.
We are surprised Charlie. Did the alarm on your phone go off?

Good day was had by all. Very enjoyable but marred for us by Sandy taking a tumble on the concrete gutter just out of the Jackson by slipping on a food scrap and is now bruised and sore. Shook her up quite a bit which was not helped by asking how the fall looked. (Trust a woman to be more concerned about looks than damage). Ned advised that she went down like a sack of s**t and I suggest that she looked like an old lady taking a tumble. Didn't talk to either of us for a couple of pubs.
She is still sore and stiff this morning and taking things easy. At least she is talking to me again.

See you again next year, mates.

Glad to hear Sandy is on the mend, Gordon.

Once again an enjoyable day was had by all, it was good to catch up with everyone again.

Glad to see Charlie made it home safely.

My flight home was quiet and enjoyable with a glass or two of Qantas "special vintage red" with dinner and my good wife was at the airport to ensure I got home in one piece.

Hope I can make it again next year.

Glad to hear everybody got home O.K., :roll: Must admit I was a bit worried about a
couple of you, but again, you've proved you're all still '19 and bullet-proof'...!!! :lol:

:-k I decided on a slight 'departure from tradition' this year, opting for individual
mug shots
(for a project I have underway for our 15 participants,) while everybody
was still 'fairly tidy'... :lol: :type: Click on 'the usual :pirate: suspects' for a BLOW UP...! :shock:

And how's that genuine (and obviously treasured,) HMAS Nirimba 'Hoodie'...!!! :shock:

:type: Image :notworthy:

Happy to post the best of the 'happy snaps' taken by others on the day,
just e-mail them to me and I'll upload them for you... :thumbright:

P.S. The pics of the very photogenic bunch above were all reduced to our
normal 950 pixel wide site restrictions, (which you'll see if you :type: click
on a pic,)
but if anybody wants an original 12 megapixel (1.4MB, 4000 x
3000 pixel)
version (for printing off,) again, just e-mail me...! :lol:

More later, I'm off to the laundromat...! :rolleyes:

Rumour is that Shep's shouting......"

Well that only goes to show how ungrateful Seejay can be.
I shouted him a schooner all over his trousers and made him stand in the cool wind to dry off and he got all snaky with me.

SHAME SEEJAY SHAME!!!
