I'm taking my 61 morris mini to motorfest in Sydney for the day. Will be there all day so hopefully I will be able to get down to the harbour and see the ferry race. The eat lunch and listen to some jazz in Hyde park. And of course look at all the other great cars.

We don't usually eat oatmeal either. Grits and eggs.

I am going to oil a few of my guns and be thankful I live where I can still have them.
01/23/2005 08:37:23 PM · #22
Well David I hope you put that big bad gun to good use.
01/23/2005 08:38:54 PM · #23
I will if needs be. What you gonna do?
01/23/2005 08:52:56 PM · #24
As long as you stay where you can own all of those guns I'm sure all us Aussies will feel alot safer.

Well, we are having a treble celebration.

Two close friends are sharing Australia day with their 30th birthdays (one just had, one due shortly).

We're going to have a lunchtime BBQ, which will doubtless end up being an all day party :)
