Rick,
I may have another starter. CPONPC Bill Bowley - ex RP, NAMAE, Naval Police, NPC who retired this week after 54 years (full time and Reserves). I just need to convince him at Bells next Friday to request a leave pass or bring Sandra along with him.
I may be a tad grumpier than usual having also been forcibly retired later this month after 54 years 9 months and 12 days. Last days in uniform this week. Seems to me a good reason for a drink.
What time do we meet at City Extra for breakfast?

=; By now, our newest retirees :old1: :old1: will no doubt be two sheets :partyman: to the wind, :tchin: we look forward to catching up with 'em both on the Rocks Run... :happy:

Greetings one and all. On the Friday, I anticipate being at the bells from about 1430 after checking into lodgings. For those that don't have it, and need to track us down, my mobile number is 0407 231 871. See you there.

:happy: Finally got hold of Marty, The Lord Nelson's Bar Manager, :laughing3: who, in anticipation of my call, had already instructed Sonia, Restaurant and Function Manager to drop the credit card issue :roll: for us... :yess:

Marty also told me that The Lord Nelson Brewery Hotel is on the market, :omg1: just in case any of us had a few million $$ tucked away, and after 40 years in the job, he'll be ready to chuck in the towel then too...

............................. =; So, now that our lunch booking is secured (again), :roll: I thought I'd save everybody any delay in ordering their scran :drink eat: by posting their current bar menu... :evil3:

Just saw that the Lord Nelson previously sold for $750K in 1986 and they expect around $35 million this time. Cheap, the Vineyard Hotel (AKA Tormaline Hotel on Windsor Road Vineyard) just sold for $70 million.
