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.

When Col came home after being at your place, well i wont say the word he used.
I described it as a few pailings fallen off, not the whole damn fence.. omg
I should have been there to help with the re-structure of the fence might not have ever fallen down with my input. (lolol)
