I am grateful today,
For our youngest has completed a bitch of year to finish in the top ten of Y12.
He has applied & been excepted to Southern Cross Uni Lismore, Bachelor of Science.
He has made his mum & dad so very proud of the young man he had grown into.
You, Jack should be proud of your effort this year, as well as you mates who have stuck by each other.
Enjoy the life a head son.

Thanks Guys,
He asked if he could use the Criuser to take his girlfriend for a weeks camping trip.
They are going to Manilla for a couple of nights, then head back to some of the National parks east of Armidale.
They have no interest in going to Schoolies.
Happy Days.

Very cool!
Our kids think along similar lines.
Mine had organised a alcohol free schoolies for 40 kids catered/costed and activities 4 day event in the planning for 2 years but covid bureaucracy killed that dream. So she's loading the 80 to head up to the Whitsundays with her best friend. I'm trying to convince her to take their dive gear to make memories. The only good thing to come out of this hide under the bed lockdown mentality is so many kids get to experience camping who otherwise wouldn't have. Forum camping kids excluded from that generalized statement.
Ask Jack to get a pic of the 80 at a campsite and we'll post them up when they get back.

I am so very grateful today because a piece of funiture has come to our family.
26 years ago when my Father passed away, my mother went loopy, she gave stuff away to anyone & everyone.
I received a phone from the ex partner of a mate who end up with a Sideboard after they broke up.
This morning I went and picked it up.
My Grandmother( Dads mum) owned it when she lived in Manilla(NSW), Dad would happy to know it is back with us.
I will get it restored.

Hi Swaggers,
This maybe long winded.
Last night I was invited to a dinner, at a local pub, I accepted, a mate in town picked me up along with another bloke who lives in town whom I had never meet before.
Anyway, the purpose of this was,
To get Blokes together to share their stories, their struggles, their fears, they stories of over coming the dark days.
There were about 14 of us, I knew four of these guys, we introduced ourselves, it was heart breaking to hear a couple of their stories, drug abuse, being abused as kids, marriage break ups and not seeing their kids.
Everyone had a story that needed to be told.
One of the blokes, wont name names, but he designed the shirts the last couple of years for NRL Indigenous rounds, he comes from Tabulam.
2 others played first grade nrl in the 80's, they have made it their quest to help blokes, not just Aboriginals blokes/kids.
God I learnt a lot from them last night.
This is an event that will happen each fortnight, and any bloke is welcome.
Us blokes don't like change, we need to help each other.

On Another What am I Grateful today, Tuesday night I came off probation Firefighter, I'm a member of The Lawrence Brigade  I'm still a newby, but my journey is official.
I attended the huge fire on the Pacific Motorway at Franklins rd on Monday, 13 hours on Fire Ground.
I can not thank my captain, deputy captain and fellow members for their support, encouragement and guidance.
I wear the uniform with pride and accept the responsibility the comes with it.


Take care Swaggers

Today I swung on by the Cemetery where my Father rests.
Do it every year, just before Christmas or as close as possible as to when he left us.
16/01/94.
He never got to see us get married, He told Fysh many times that she was the best thing to of ever happen to me(I have to agree) :)
Miss him dearly, I was just getting my Shit together, listening to his Words.
I am Grateful for the arse kicks  the hard love, the silent love.
I am for ever grateful for know this man.


Christmas isn't the best time for many, we miss those that we love.
Cheerish the memories.

Take care Swaggers.
MERRY CHRISTMAS.
