I'll just add,
I am so very Grateful for the phone calls this evening and the last week, from not only mates and Swaggers,(yes you Farkers are) as well as  from people I know through our 4wd club, guys that I have known for yonks in the building game, And from my teenage days.
That means heaps, Thank You.
To all Swaggers, you are Family.
Cheers.

I'm grateful that despite everyone slagging whichever government in is at the time.....

Lets face it everyone slags whoever for doing the wrong thing, as if anyone could do a better job, (Except the Greens of course - they would Eff it up well and proper not a half arsed eff up like the others!!!)

.....back to the point.
I'm grateful that despite the media and the usual responses, our government has done a good effort to keep us plodding along and restrict the spread. (I won't use the C word as it conficts with beer I like and should be in another thread if I use that word.)

But hey guys, thanks and job well done.
Education kept going, money still got spend, and the economy is still running.
The world didn't end.

Now I will sit and wait to be shot down in flames for having an opinion  :-[  which no doubt is wrong and people will disagree, but I am grateful I live here and they have done what they have done.

Cheers

Oh and "Thank God", now I have religion thrown in as well so I don't miss out upsetting anyone!!!!

Hmmm,

I am grateful for having Micro$oft in my life (not).
Their own mobile app for email (Outlook) does not search the Global Address List in Exchange for peoples contact details whereas other 3rd party apps will search it happily and return all information.  ??? ??? ???
No wonder I am going grey and bald.

Caught up with a bloke I know, we aren't mates, but we bump into each other every now and then, today I went out of my way to see him.
He doubts himself, he get despessed, but he provides for his family, doesn't have a trade, self employed, hmmm.
Spent a good two hours with him.
I am grateful that I left him in a better place this arvo, and not one drop of grog was to be had.
Sometimes, a kind word goes a long way.
Take care Swaggers.

I'm grateful to hear the family up the road is safe after their house burnt down last night. One of the family members is quadriplegic and needs 24x7 care, so we were worried when we heard the emergency services and were alerted to the fire on the emergency app. We had a power outage in the area and they lit a candle in a bedroom upstairs, the rest as they say is history.

I am grateful today, because I got to work along aside a top bloke.
He has had his share of Shite storms, he is an honest, hard working, genuine bloke.
Makes my day.
Happy Days.

Spent another day doing the same.
When you come home, it feels good that I've had an awesome day.
No stress, laughs all day, no ego's.
The job gets done, finished, the customer comments that it was great to hear tradies having fun, and getting the job done.
It's always a great thing to hear feed back like that from people.

Spent 8 hours doing the first stage of becoming an RFS member.
What a selfless group they are
They range in from 76 year old to 18 yesr olds.
They are there, just to be part of their Communitty.
I have a head full info, it will take months to learn the ropes and years to have the knowledge that some of these guys & girls hold.
I'm always learning, to think you can just jump on a truck and you're right to go is foolish.
Look forward to the next training day.
