Nil all on Sunday

Tracey and I added to the cheer-squad at the Uni girls soccer game at Giralang on Sunday. Here, Hodgo' is poised and ready to strike.

The Uni team is putting up some tough defence.

Elene displays her trademark move.

Jen surveys the battleground.

Julie's 55th

We're a little light on for snaps from this evening, so hopefully we can swap photos at some stage. Here are a few of the better photos, though we missed getting a photo with Julie.

The blue star should, as I have already said, be a large "H".

Gearing up

Warm weather approaches and Jenny is enthusiastic about getting out on the bike.

Jen has even picked up a sporty leather moto' jacket.

North Bar, 27 July

Rimsy and Jess were effervescent.

Harry Potter fans were bubbly.

Hi Elene and Julie.

Jenny poses with an office-bearer of the Hannah Smith Society.

Tracey, you are going off!

Happy 25th birthday, Marlin!

Way to go, Marlin, and thanks for a lovely evening.

Peel Street lads rock Canberra.

Marko cranked out some Nirvana late on Thursday evening after Thai food at the Asian Noodle House and half-price pints at O'Neil's.

Turn up the volume and take it in!

A late Thursday could have slowed down daintier chaps, but not these guys. Free drinks in the city - can you believe it?

People give me so many compliments for wearing this shirt, then look at how well it teams up with the station-master's hat.

Photogenic... though is there a need for more station-master's hats?

Ah - there we go!

Cold weather ahead

The forecast from today predicts snow for Canberra on Wednesday! Saturday was cold. (It was less than one degree until eleven in the morning). So cold that on my way to Queanbeyan for rugby, I had to dismount from the moto', after making it as far as the airport, and warm my hands at the exhaust for ten minutes. Motorcyclists look after each other. The next rider after me, thinking that I was in distress, stopped to offer his assistance. That kind consideration made my day. (So did putting it over Queanbeyan 8-0 with the Owls third-grade side a little later in the day).

Stepping back one day takes us to the "Friday the 13th" Singstar evening at the Fox. Jen and I carved a jack'o'lantern and posted it outside with regard to the eerie theme of the evening. Mix' supplied the blood curdling wails, but it was just another Singstar attempt.

Stepping back a further week lands us in Cowra for the picnic races of 2007. Gun-skulling, as imported from the Peel Street boys caught on.

We were checked for ID, recommended for our dress, backing winners, backing losers, drinking longies, getting messy - well, it's the races.

I was going to end the post here but then recalled a funny little vid' from the other night... Enjoy!

Happy 24th Birthday, Jenny

Jen starts her birthday morning posing with her new transformer (autobot Jazz), listening to her "So Fresh" CD and sipping tea from an exquisite mug.
