Wednesday 2nd October 2013


At last! Our meeting was held on the day of “The storm of the Century”. It was hot, gusty and just plain awful. So the dedicated few who didn’t get blown away and who made it – congratulations!!!

Some of our members had been blown so far away that they were enjoying adventures in France, Turkey and Venice. Others merely had trees across their driveways, and yet others, showing our ages here – had grandchildren and/or nephews and nieces to baby sit.

So, we select few had such a wonderful time chatting and laughing that, despite having charged it the night before,  I forgot to even get my new blue camera out. So no pics – however, do not despair and keep reading!

Highlights – Dianne’s home made vanilla slices, Sally’s beautiful blue and white Dear Jane. A masterpiece that we have all watched come together over the past many years. Big congratulations to Sally. And Jeanette kindly brought along her Ipad , just to show me a special Iview of the first SBS episode of “Destination Japan”. It was all about a crazy Japanese dairy farmer, who, amongst other things, dressed up in a Cow onesie and had all things “cow” for sale in his cafe. I don’t know! Some people!!!

For those interested here it is:

Anyway, our next meeting is on Wednesday the 6th of November.

Be there or be square and this time Marona will be there to ensure that photos are taken and a proper report is made for the blog – otherwise it will be more cow pictures – be afraid!!!

Your roving, moo-ing reporter,
