    Back in the world of coms. Lost power, phone and internet last Friday morn when storm went thru. The prediction was that all would be restored by 9th! Got power back yesterday and phone/ADSL this morn.

    Finally celebrating our, recent, 40th anniversary!
    Wonderful lunch at one of our favourite Pittwater side restaurants.
    Uncanny coincidence……spotted my mate who was Best Man all those years ago, having lunch (he’s a landscaper) in the park…..called him and he joined us for a beer before heading back to work.
    Restaurant was happy to let him join us despite him being in work clothes and being a bit grotty……a big thank you to Barrenjoey House !
    Great day……rain stopped,skies cleared and the wind dropped for us…..just perfect.
    A couple hours of hammock time in the sun has seen the day out nicely……
    Life is good !
    Cheers,
    Mark

    Passing on life skills to a younger generation……:rolleyes:
    Young bloke across the road locked his keys in his hiace van.
    He was fiddling ‘round with some flimsy wire and getting nowhere…..apparently his van had been like this for three days and he was about to pay the NRMA to come out, (he’s not a member…)
    I told him I thought I could help him out as I’d done this before.
    Grabbed a coat hanger, straightened it out, put the bends in the appropriate spots and bingo we were in.;)
    Left him wondering how I knew how to break into cars…..:D
    Cheers,
    Mark

    A friend of mine brought and gave my next years kombi calendar. Two of my cars are in the calendar, February and August. Friend knew one was in there but didn't recognise the second one. kombi calendar2022.JPG

    Finally getting some spare time to open up KC and seeing this post makes me happy! I showed the kids and although Joseph doesn’t really remember his contribution, Gracie sure was amazed her artwork is still being admired. :)
    The craft box was out over the weekend Mark so there’s the possibility of another Christmas
    gift. :D
    Christmas wishes to yourself, Sue and your family Mark. Here’s hoping we can all reunite and celebrate a bright 2022!!

    There’s just one copy in our local paper shop Wayne... I’ve hinted to Paul that it would make a great Christmas gift. :D
    Some very enviable vans in it!
