Location: Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

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.

Blown Away

Wow! Two posts in the same week

Our house was battered in the last storm ( upto 160 Km winds) that raged through Melbourne. We lost 12 metres (37ft) of our back fence and about the same off the side fence.

The wind came out of nowhere, there was an almighty crash and when I rushed outside I could see sections of the fence missing. It happenned after midnight so I must admit I shrugged my shoulders and called Ruby (our dog) to make sure she was ok. She had decided to get herself aquainted with our neighbour's dog & pet rabbit. I managed to stop her from having an early breakfast (lucky rabbit).

Colin & Matt came over to help me to put the fence back up. They did a fantastic job, we finished with plenty of time to stand back with a frothy (Jim Beam for Matt) and admire our handy work.

C'mon Gaz Keep Up

I do enjoy blogging, you probably wouldn't think so given the time lapsed between posts. My digital camera is not working . I hope santa brings me one.... Hint Hint

Since my last post:

My backyard workshop has been completed. All that is left for me to do is install power points and lights.I should get the time in the next couple of weeks.

Nathan has successfully graded to His Yellow belt with Orange tip in Karate. He now can compete in contact exersizes using Mits & Pads. His next grading is to Orange belt.

Emily has been sitting for her Year 10 exams. In addition to her Year 10 subjects she is studying Psychology a VCE subject (Year 11 & 12). The course was offered to a limited amount of successful students. If all goes well Emily will be able to carry her results to VCE level which will add to her score for University entry.

Alyce has been offered an interview at Victoria University for the possibility of acceptance.

My Mum "Jeanette" and "Gwen"stayed at our place and were both spoilt rotten.

Although you wouldn't think so when you read thier bloggs. Isn't that right ladies? :-)

"Andrew" and myself headed down to The Rosebud Country Club to compete in our Social Golf Club's annual competition. We didn't run last, but we were closer to the tail than the top of the leader board.

Last but not least a joke :

Dolly Parton and Queen Elizabeth die on the same day and they both go
before an Angel to find out if they'll be admitted to Heaven.
Unfortunately, there's only one space left that day, so the Angel must
decide which of them gets in. The Angel asks Dolly if there's some
particular reason why she should go to Heaven.
Dolly takes off her top and says, "Look at these, they're the most
perfect breasts God ever created, and I'm sure it will please God to be
able to see them every day, for eternity."
The Angel thanks Dolly, and asks Her Majesty the same question.
The Queen takes a bottle of Perrier out of her purse, shakes it up,gargles,spits into a toilet and pulls the lever.
The Angel says, "OK, your Majesty, you may go in."
Dolly is outraged and asks,"What was that all about? I show you two of God's own perfect creations and you turn me down. She spits into a commode and she gets in!
Would you explain that to me?"

"Sorry, Dolly," says the Angel, "but even in Heaven, a royal flush
beats a pair - no matter how big they are
