Call me Rip Van Winkle dead set…

White Xmas 2013

Well one minute I was at mums and also visiting my daughter and it was Christmas, next it was New Years Eve and on the telly mum and I were watching 2014 roll in and the fireworks.


Next thing you know January has finished huh??? and it’s February.   So I help me mate move his mum to Melbourne and that way I can visit my mum and what a surprise… If you hire Platinum Removals, they make sure to treat your valuable belongings with the highest regard. mum loved it and so did I – well except the moving furniture bit you know sore back an all 🙂

Now somewhere in this month there was Valentines Day and my mate sent a dozen roses to his missus work – me? well I had committee meetings and damn I think I forgot Valentines Day…



Now February is over and so is Summer it’s the start of March and Autumn yikes!!!   I’m trying to work out where has the time gone and what have I achieved or done??

I mean its nearly time to pack Aunty Winne and head off to the Crackin’ Cancer fundraiser up at Bullock Mountain.  Ah yes a week of horses as well as I get to sing and play Country Music for a week and raise paydaynow money for Cancer Research; ok so that pretty good.    Hang on thats just over a week away man time to get busy, gotta get the laptop ready, the go pro cameras and heaps of other stuff – yikes.

trip home


Like I said in the beginning I am feeling a bit like Rip Van Winkle – times seems to have flown past and I don’t know what I’ve done or achieved, all I know is that I have been busy.

To all a Merry Christmas and a Merry Christmas to everyone of yáll

As 2013 draws to a close it’s been a somewhat interesting year. I still have to drink that horrible stuff water yep between 2 and 3 litres of the stuff!!! and maybe ok a couple of Jack Daniels and Bundy’s as well (nobody’s perfect right?)

Tho this Christmas just seems I don’t know just different and yet I don’t know why.   christmas_bells I’ve lost a few friends including a mate Vince and his wife Blanche within a week of each other plus others.

Have you ever had one of those starts to the holiday season???  You know well this was how mine started…  can’t wait I get to see Mum and I get to see my daughter BJ and get to catch up with some dear friends.

few days to go before xmas the boat started to sink on its mooring as the batteries had died a little whiles ago and the bilge pumps stopped working – great.   2 new batteries later and the bilge pumps died hmmmm, then my car decided to die (your kidding me) but a mate lent me his ute.   I couldn’t use my GPS as his cigarette lighter didn’t work so a plus for me I remembered how to get around without one – ripper!

All in all tho Christmas despite the setbacks turned out pretty good.   I got to goto and still am at mums, I got to see my precious daughter BJ, I got to see a mate of mine Glenn and his wife Vicki who I hadn’t seen for a couple of years and I got to see Marj and Gary and play the guitar and sing till way after midnight so all in all as I said so far its turned out pretty good.

stopping for the night on the way home


I have found that travelling and being in other states means I sometimes don’t get to see friends all that often and sometimes a year or more slips by which is not good.

My New Years resolution:  Catch up with people I have forgotten to ring or see and try to be not so forgetful (will try honest) and yes I know what they say about New Years resolutions but I will try this year.

And so from me and mine to you and yours from somewhere in Australia…

Merry Christmas to one and all and a Happy New Year and may 2014 be fantastic!
