    Hey! Thanks, eh! Colonial farming? Meaning colonists? Not exactly where my academic interests lie. Still, I will check it out, for sure.
    Also Coogee Bondi. That looks like a pair of words Id pronounce improperly once. What? IPA works!

    Here the citrus is cranking, Canada geese are flying overhead, bald eagles are cruising for food (they nest near here) and its 8c.

    Oy! Give Sibbo a big hug from me, eh?

    Dang, see, these other lumps I might could drive and see, mostly, but you lot, down there...? Oh, I’d love to come down and take a tour of your crazy island.

    Shoot, while I’m down there, may as well see Hobbitt Island, too, eh?

    Noon on the 27th? So, a toast at 1230? We can all hoist one together.

    Peace,
    Robert

    A toast at 12.30 to absent friends sounds like a good idea to me.

    Is the EBS at noon Australian Standard Time or Daylight Savings Time?

    Those on the left, I mean - rough. In a nice way! The W family don't look rough at all - quite the opposite!

    We had a great time! It was a real pleasure meeting Gary, Peter, and Tom.

    So many great stories in such a short time. Another successful EBS!

    Brian and gang, looks like lots of fun! Sorry I couldn't make it down in the end. Had to go to at short notice to Northside Marine who are repairing my new trailer.

    Brian, I live in central Brisbane, and we'll be here until the 6th or 7th I think. If you'd like to meet up and maybe have dinner or something, let me know. 0418714011. Would be good. cheers John
