One EO member told me two days ago Kev, that I go where angels fear to tread. I guess that means I have a few scars that time out to 60 and more than seconds mate. I reckon I can believe it.

Hope your girls are well mate and flourishing in the toad gardens.

Bushfix, I did thank you. It was a great day, indeed a great few days as we had many friends call in from quite a distance away.Berri and McLaren Vale SA to East Gippsland and the noise as they chatted made it all music to my ears that people mixed exceptionally well.

Mate, my wealth is in my friends. It was facinating to hear of the degree of separation across so many of them. Just yesterday morning talking to one lovely lady, how she knew the ones from McLaren Vale (a uni mate and wife) as they had met at a party of a neighbour. Then Big Kidz with friends of my friends in Port Fairy. I am not going through them all though.

Eric, the connected frriends I heard about afterwards was amazing. The talk in Australia about three degrees is an exaggeration. It was more like one degree that night.

Not just the one mentioed above, but others that had met previously through other friends, even though they may live hours apart in driving and flying terms. One of the 'girlfriends' pictured knew other friends of mine - like one I was at uni with.

Hardly surprising 'Puddles' knows some of your or my contacts.

Mate, it will be tax in a different form. Fuel taxes, GST that I will notice more I expect and will have stick with me, than wash through the business. I will have to ensure I don't spend too much time doing other work that I don't enjoy this life.

I am sure the super fund will be put to good use somewhere though.

Dasher Des, I am really only about 35 which makes Nick, nine. There was another Des there the other night, hubby of Sharyn M who was a member until the business got too busy. He works on other district projects and some outside our district too. Bonz, you are right, Lost Des was operative, had to sit under a tree until found.

Nick, thanks for your wishes, I enjoyed the weekend immensley as Des said he did too. I thought I was the tall skinny one.

There's another one coming up at the end of the year and the Party will be on Norfolk Island from 7 Dec for a week to 10 days.

You tall blokes have all the fun. I once met a lady in the street who was around 4foot 6. I said thanks, and she asked what for?
Told her I always wanted to know what it felt like to be tall LOL

As for running...can't do much of that these days, nor dancing. Although I still get the runs occasionally LOL

Glad to see so many others wishing you Happy Birthday.

It has been nice actually to see the goodwill. I have never wanted to be short, perhaps a bit more muscular, but then It wouldn't be good to be perfect, or, well, too perfect. LOL F'loosie, I like tall girls for dancing, but then I like small girls too. I guess it says more about me. Perhaps too much.

Mate, Satdy was the nite, Sundy, the morning, but I think for some Sundy was the aft'noon. There were some sick puppies around the CVP I heard. Obviously not quite as clean living as the rest of us. I thought the food was OK. I didn't get into the bottle of bourbon but I heard one was nearly empty. Glenn was on Boags when I saw him..

Thanks for the wishes mate, love to Marie.

G'day Pete and all friends contrbuting. Thank you for your best wishes. A Seniors card application will probably be my next finance form to fill in and that will help the SMSF go a little further when it starts paying me.

It was nice that you all recognised the event but there were a couple of other EO guys too that also had the same birthdate. I guess they may not have reached their seventh decade though. I guess the main thing now is to make every day pay and enjoy.

I hope to be around for many more days travelling with you all, and the tracks, though may they be rocky, they won't be too punishing. I think I have enough spirit from last weekend to keep me propelled. Bless you all.
