Lukes Last Day at School

Well the boy has now finished school (today) and he now has his own life, loves, cares, passions to follow. I guess you could say I'm pretty proud of how he has turned out and I wish all the success in whichever path he follows. He has an apprenticeship, a mechanic with aspirations for race cars - hope you get there mate.
He had the formal on Wednesday and decided to "suit-up"

Touring Canberra

I recently had the opportunity to attend a radiation safety conference at Canberra. Brrrrrrrrr. On the upside, we had dinner at Australian War Museum. Being an old jet man, got my photo taken in front of a ME262. They were pretty brave going up in those things.

Got to see the Senate in session (less said the better), wander around Parliament House (Isn't it incredible!!) and saw a protest happen in the Senate two seats in front of us. (WOW, must watch the telly tonight)

Great Flood

We copped a bit of water at the start of the year, this is me downstairs as the flooding receeded, we had crocidiles swimming in the street off to one side. I found out that one after walking around the corner to rescue a relative. They got a lift in a boat!

This is me dressed up at the national shoot a couple of years ago at Millmerrin. I was shooting "cowboy" style at the time and yes we did use real bullets at tin targets. They are replica Colt .45's hanging from the hips but shot straight'n'true.

Luke also came along, he is pretty tough sippin' on a sarsparalla.

Mums 80th

I don't mind a beer or two, here we are with family knocking back a couple when we all got together to celebrate Mums 80th Birthday in June. What a beautiful location, we had it at Mackay Marina (I also work in an office there, lifes tough aint it!)

House Reno

They say that the chainsaw isn't a precision tool. I can now get from the spa to the bar in no time flat.
