Gra Nomad Wanderings

Tuesday, September 28, 2010


Bob and I were great mates and deadly enemies. We played a heap of tennis while at Hurlstone Ag High. Always competitive. Nobody ever threw a set back in those days. (Think we have matching racquets!)

Me on the left, Jimmy Hayden (not Matty), Tim Roberts and Bob. Bob and I both had cricket keen dads which rubbed off. We were both batsmen! Why try and bowl if you're a batsman?

This shot may have been even earlier... maybe junior high school days. We were proud to represent the school.

As we became adults so we kept in touch. Bob became an engineer while I became a teacher. We used to share stuff on leadership and management and office skills etc.

We had some fun times together. Used to go out on double dates earlier on. Used to tell each other what we thought of the other bloke's girlfriend at the time. That can be dangerous.... especially if she becomes a wife!!! (After you've told him how hopeless she is!!)

Bob came to visit this September. Here he is doing some whipper snippering in our yard. Thanks Bob. He's always been a practical bugger. And he always buys "toys". He'd just bought this snipper down in Melbourne I believe. He actually come from Brissy. Hopefully he'll be back and will do a few more jobs round the house. If you want him to visit you.... just give me a yell. I can arrange that.
