Chris, I hope that you are pleased to see that your legacy lives on at the Fox. Your basil, chilli and capsicum plants survive although their welfare is at times a little "sporadic". ("I hope not sporadically!") I laid down some mulch last week and have noticed that the chilli plants are fruiting now. Thankfully, the items that you planted are not susceptible to possum-attacks, such is the fate of my hops plant..
The pilgramage to Cowra over summer was good fun. Roberts was flaunting his style here at the local RSL club after we were nearly boo-ed off stage for our rendition of Khe Sanh.
Bateman's Bay was a good spot to have a dip between Xmas and New Year's Eve - so much so that every government servant and his dog was there too! Jenny and I headed up in to the National Park so we could easily find some space to swim and snorkel peacefully.
The warm weather has been very conducive to brewing and the stockpile that Jenny and I have amassed now numbers in excess of 200 long-necks of homebrew. I am glad for the warm weather, though it hailed yesterday and we had to cover the car in case of damage! Check out the T-shirt, by the way. Thanks Phil for the top design, we eagerly await your return from the US soon!
Jenny and Mel snapped this photo of my much-loved GS500 while Marko and I were having a hit of tennis at the ANU. The moto' now has almost three thousand kilometres on the clock.
Last night was, of course, New Year's Eve. Jenny and I hosted some festivities here at the Fox and then headed in to find a vantage point near the National Museum, and just on the edge of the lake, from wich we could watch the fireworks. Thanks to those guys who could make it over to toast to the new year with us over a few homebrews at the Fox yesterday. Oh and all the best with the new job in Singo', Mel - hopefully Jenny and I will catch you again before you head off!
