Glad to see you got home in one piece, Charlie! We were a bit concerned as to whether you'd make it. :(

....and what Shep forgot to mention was that the schooner he knocked over in his inglorious rush to grope the young girls nearby was Howie's schooner!

Talk about freeze the patooties!!! :shock: :shock: :shock:

But, no great problem, I dunked his toothbrush in the toilet... :wink:

Great time again guys, definitely a high point on my calendar every year. :thumbright: :thumbright:

Picked that up on the way to 'The Basin Trials', thankfully, the rest of weekend was a whole lot better...! :lol:

As you can imagine I'm devastated by not being there to keep all the girls at the Lowenrbrau safe from Charlie and Col....and I'll bet that bastard Staples gave out some of my business cards after acting particularly sleazy with some of the girls.... [-X [-X

I enjoyed catching up with my brother very much, and tried to emulate the drinking I would have done on the Rock's Run, but he's not an ex-sailor so it was hard going.....though he lived most of his life in the Territory and can knock over a keg or two... :partyman: :drinkers: :drinkers: :occasion5:

Sorry to hear about Sandy's fall, and of course Ned's insensitive comments...i knew he'd get into trouble without my guidance.... #-o #-o

Loved the photos Rick....particularly liked how you positioned the gravestones and dates behind the old farts...stand fast the ladies...thought you were a bit generous on the birthdates for some of them though.... :butthead: :finga: :laughing5: :laughing8: :toothy7: :laughing8: :upy:

Hopefully Rhonda and I will catch up with you on next year's run.

Geez.....those photos make us look good Rick.......must be a special camera.
Once again a great run with Pussasan and myself last men standing on Friday and Saturday night.....although I do seem to remember Shep was thereabouts as well. We were royally entertained by engineering crew from HMAS Newcastle on the Friday evening....although that MEO was on something other than beer.
As Pussa and myself sat outside the Frisco on Sunday noontime, he managed to pull a few nice little things. Two Shi Tzus and a Papillon, as well as one of the original girls from Les Girls. A good afternoon was had. Finished with a scottish tea at Pussas room after yet another meal at Friscos.
It was great to see you all again fellas!!!!! Roll on 2013!!!
