Married to Christine (22 years) and proud father of three children, Alyce,Emily & Nathan. Not as active as I'd like to be, back surgery last year has resulted in my physical life style to be somewhat compromised. I Love having a drink or two with my mates, especially in the Summer months when we take it in turns to hover over the BBQ.

Happy Anniversary Number 22

Wow! on February the 9th , 22 years of wedded bliss *cough* *cough* how does Charli put up with me. It must be the charm, good looks and endless passion. Whoops got carried away there for a second, nothing like pumpin' up your own tyres every now and then.

We had no real plans prior to our anniversary as usual, (other than last years surprise weekend in Noosa) we normally wing it on the night and this year wasnt any different. We donned the casual clothes, jumped in the car and went looking for a nice resteraunt. We found Yings Chinese resteraunt by accident, it just happened to be in a place Charli decided to do a U turn. So we parked the car and went in too check it out and we were ushered to a table. The Banquet we chose was awesome and who would have thought you can set fire to ice cream. Mmmmmmm!

Fortunately the lady who waited on our table was the owner of Yings. I say fortunately because she was this bundle of energy, cracking jokes and having a ball. she obviously loved her work.
After getting to now her and chatting to some regular customers this wonderful lady turned out to be Phylis Chan the mother of Carmin Chan. Carmin was the young 6 year old girl that was found murdered in Thomastown 10 years ago. (a suspected victim of the scum of the earth Mr. Baldy)

Charli and I had a great night, Phylis made me pay the bill by threatening me with a baseball bat. According to Phylis "woman no pay, man pays". I hope Charli pays me back but just in case
22 years suggests I shouldn't hold my breath waiting...... LOL... :-)

MRI Update

I've had interim results from the MRI yesterday. All is not good, it seems the Spinal cord nerve is still impinged by the original damaged disc.

The new MRI films have been returned to the hospital for a comparison report of the original films.

Next step is a visit to the surgeon for further advice.

BUGGER!!!!! :-)

Lifting My Game

Thanks Peter, I needed a kick in the pants :-)

Firstly, I have a confirmed appointment at the Hospital on 19th Feb. for an MRI to investigate the new developements of pain related to my back injury. I will keep everybody posted on the results. As they say, watch this space.

And now for a little humour to cheer up your day:

The Dam

An elderly man in Queensland had owned a large property for several years.
He had a dam in the next paddock, fixed up nice - picnic tables,horse shoe courts, and some mango and avocado trees.
The dam was properly shaped and fixed up for swimming when it was built.
One evening the old farmer decided to go down to the dam, as he hadn't been there for a while, to look it over. He grabbed a five gallon bucket to bring back some fruit. As he neared the dam, he heard voices shouting and laughing with glee. As he came closer he saw it was a bunch of young women skinny-dipping in his dam.

He made the women aware of his presence and they all went to the deep end. One of the women shouted to him, "We're not coming out until you leave!"The old man frowned, "I didn't come down here to watch you ladies swim naked or make you get out of the dam naked. Holding the bucket up he said, "I'm here to feed the crocodile.

"Moral: Old men might walk slow, but they can still think fast".

Busy December Part 1

The last part of Charli's Birthday present. Matt & Midge, Little Jen & The Governor, Charli & myself and 66,000 people headed into the Telstradome for the last Robbie Williams concert for 2006.

We all had a good time. The girls would liked to have been a bit closer, Robbie's lap was suggested to be the prime spot.

Christmas Humor

Christmas Story for people having a bad day.....

When four of Santa's elves got sick, the trainee elves did not produce toys as fast as the regular ones, and Santa began to feel the pre-Christmas pressure.

Then Mrs Claus told Santa her Mother was coming to visit, which stressed Santa even more.

When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were about to give birth and two others had jumped the fence and were out, Heaven knows where.

Then when he began to load the sleigh, one of the floorboards cracked, the toy bag fell to the ground and all the toys were scattered. So, frustrated, Santa went in the house for a cup of apple cider and a shot of rum. When he went to the cupboard, he discovered the elves had drank all the cider and hidden the liquor. In his frustration, he accidentally dropped the cider jug, and it broke into hundreds of little glass pieces all over the kitchen floor. He went to get the broom and found the mice had eaten all the straw off the end of the broom.

Just then the doorbell rang, and irritated Santa marched to the door, yanked it open, and there stood a little angel with a great big Christmas tree. The angel said very cheerfully, "Merry Christmas, Santa. Isn't this a lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me to stick it?"

And so began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas tree.
