    Goodonya Marc and Clancy,
    Thanks for the confirmation.
    I remember Henning tripping over those string lines set up for the alignment of Noel's outfit, and Cecil walking away in disgust.
    It’s a bugger when your long term memory is as sharp as, but you can’t remember what you had for tucker last night.
    Speaking of memories of old friends, just found out that Damien Cook is recovering from a broken hip due to a push bike fall. Had a long chat with him today, and he's as cheerful as ever.

    Seems to be confusion on photo talking about. But in any case I only see one person in either photo actually doing anything, the others are just hanger ons.

    Spoke with Chris last night and he seems to be heading in the right direction.

    Might have a bit of confusion though as he has rejoined the Monarchs. :D

    For those that care. Chris has been relegated from the Sale Hosp to the Maffra Hosp. They kicked him out for being too cheeky to the nurses (as is his wont), or they needed the bed for more seriously ill patients. He'll probably feel quite at home with all the other elderly people at Maffra.

    Hope he's back up and running smoothly again.

    Not sure "running" is a word that one would use in the same sentence as Mcargle. Busy checking wheel bearing suppliers, welding shops, bakeries, yes; but running??

    I spoke with Chris this arvo (23rd). He seems to be improving quite well and has set some reachable targets for himself. He is living in a unit in Sale.

    If you stumble and take 4 quick steps in succession - that could be considered running for some of us. :lol3

    Spoke to McCardigan tonight - he's sounding pretty positive about the whole thing which is just terrific to hear.

    Hopefully we'll see him out clocking up some more big kilometres on his 800 very soon. :-)
