After all of the birthday wishes I have received I missed Goggs day?

Sorry about that. I suppose the airplane pulling the banner was over OZ.

Best wishes Kid.

I don't know if he actually caught her but he certainly has a hold of her.

In actuality, She has the hold on Him.

It is a shame that her life will be altered to a great extent.

So Solly.

As I read the posts there in no mention of a meeting with One Run Bob.

That may have saved both nations.

OK.

I have been slack, I'll get onto it and tell at least some of the story on the recent US trip, some of it can't be shown, some of it can't be told........

I'm confused.

Does that means that if he tells the story from the US

while he is down under it will be upside down?

What program is needed to have it make sense?

Maybe just the part from San Fran would be upside down ?????

If the answers are too difficult to write and for me to read, forget it.
