I was reading today some sandgroper advice for Footie and his mate with accessories see Post 34727 and it bought a tear to the eye.

Now many of you know our tragic news of last year and how we were cared for and helped out by Bob and Belinda at Innamincka Trading Post. Well if I ever hear of anyone going past there I ask them to remember us to Bob and Belinda and give Belinda a cuddle from us.

Today I got an email from a remote cuddler heading up that way soon, The body of the email said, and I quote:

"Who is it I have to pash at Innamincka?"

Amidst the crappiest of things to happen, Bob and Belinda were a light in a dark night. EO people are the beacon of our lives. To the Phantom Pasher, I salute you, my smile couldn't be wider or my pants drier.

Thankyou

Thanx Rosco, I am sure she will be overwhelmed, and then maybe she wont, Belinda dn Bob are the salt of the earth mate.

And to other don't be frightened to reply, nothing can upset us. :) Things are starting to look up for the Clan Barby.

Hi Bonz,
I won't be in the "pash queue" this year but plan to be in it on your behalf next year.

Thanx Geoff, I must re-uterate, a cuddle is all I ask for, some Phantom's take the cuddle a tad farther :) Most honoured you would greet Bob and Belinda for us!

Thanx

Bonz mate,
Having already given Belinda a cuddle last July, I can't wait to go back up there and have another one. As you say they (Belinda and Bob) are the best type of outback characters, friendly and helpful but most of all they remember you Bonz with great affection and respect.

There was a little reservation at first, if you ever meet me you might understand that better. I am a little scruffy especially when camping away from civilisation, but once I mentioned you and they realised who i was talking about, Belinda allbut leaped over the counter to give me/you a cuddle.

Does that make me the inaugural cuddler, if so that makes me so very proud.

Sounds like you have and are being a bit of a Leyland Brother!

My mum in law is back to Fiji tomorrow, she was only there 2 weeks ago and late last year. She loves the place and the people. Now off to Europe! all this time off work... heck Bonz whatcha do for a living that lets you get all this time off???!! and still afford to buy 4wd toys!
We travelled over the border down to NSW today, Fingal Heads for a day of fishing. 6 fish in total but nothing keepable.
Yesterday we went to the caravan/camping show. Not too bad. Got to drool over a few camper trailers..... have a hissy fit over their ridiculous charge for lunch!
All round, a good weekend. time to relax with a cuppa and my seperation anxiety disorder cat will not get off my lap!!!!!
