  1. Melbourne Cup day here today and the whole bloody joint has a public holiday! What a pack of morons we must look to the rest of the world! SIL Roz came down in her dressing gown this morning full of enthusiasm for having a small bet and watching the race at 2 PM..... I didn’t want to know as I can’t stand betting or horse races but her enthusiasm overcame my resistance and I now have $4 on 2 horses....Sigh It’s 2 to 1 here these days and I’m the one outnumbered! Even the dog is female~
  2. Chuckle...she did mention something about me not being able to argue~ I’m back to singing in the shower....pretty hoarse but not bad for Blues. Man it feels god!
  3. Two doctors and my ENT specialist looked and ruled out Candida, that didn’t leave many options. Hell of a relief for sure and after the news Gael, Roz & I had a party! I knocked over half a bottle of Dimple~ Calls to family & friends showed me the depth of love I am surrounded by and I am humbled. My wife of course has been magnificent and I know I’m the luckiest bloke in the world!
  4. OK Guys biopsy results are in and it’s not cancer. I have a fungal growth in my vocal chords that can be treated and I’ll soon be back singing in the shower. Phew!
  5. Thanks for that Jason, it’s appreciated. I had an operation yesterday to inspect my larynx and to secure a biopsy. We talk to the surgeon next week to see what’s going on. He doesn’t want me to talk for 2 weeks!!! Do you know how hard that is?
  6. Thanks for your friend ship once again mate.
  7. Yeah I’m going to miss singing ( to myself) but I can sing in my mind at least. I’m hoping for a good blues voice if things change...Grin~ Thanks for your kind thoughts.
  8. Thanks guys! Hoping it won’t be much but can’t leave things like they are so it’s a necessary thing to do. I’ll let you know how it goes. Off to Melbourne this morning.
  9. Thanks Mr N, Yep the beer diet is a goer no matter what! It’s the heat you know...Grin~
  10. I’m heading into hospital for surgery on Monday actually. I’ve been having trouble with my throat and voice box for about 10 weeks, affecting my voice badly They’re going in to see what the cause is and depending on what they find, removing it. I may have to be on a beer diet for sometime after that...Grin~
  11. Hi Folks, Butch told me about this thread so I thought I’d come and stick my nose in. Thanks to all who were wondering how I am. Apart from getting old and having a long list of aches and pains, I’m fine thanks. As Butch said we talk ever day and are great mates. Notes and I are mates too and talk regularly ever since we met up last year...good people. Jim, Pinch also drop in and say G'day and I welcome their contact, others too from time to time. My email is gumfarm@gmail.com and if you want to catch up then I welcome hearing from you. I dropped out of a number of forums pretty much at the same time as I’ve spent too many hours sitting in front of this darn computer. Some of you may know that we are in the depths of a deep drought down here and I simply can’t keep up with all the dead things that need cutting out. Also as I get older my capacity for hard works gets less and less. However I still spend most of my time with a chainsaw in my hands or sitting on a tractor..hey, it’s my life! I do miss you guys but after 11 1/2 years I really have done the forum thing and am backing out. Besides, us old farts need to make room for the next mob coming through.
  12. Having a bit of a break!


  13. G’day Cobber my email is gumfarm@gmail.com

  14. HIs documentaries represent a good proportion of all that I watch on TV and I love them. May there be more birthdays for Sir David.
  15. Fishing, since I was 8.
  16. Good luck John, you deserve for it to work out.
  17. I’ve been “retired” since 21 September 1998. Not at all sure about the statement that life gets better each year after 70, certainly not my experience....Grin~ Glad you had a good day Cobber!

    Hi folks

    I’d become good friends with Milo Duane, and it was a kick in the bum to hear he’d gone. I did suspected something was wrong as he went quiet for a few months. Carla told me she was closing down his phone and internet shortly after he died. He was an extremely interesting person and had many friends here. It’s always sad to lose a good one and I often wonder what has been happening to people that just drift away from these places. So many good ones over the years. We’re going well thank you and hope the same is true for you.

    Hi folks

    Firstly it’s good to see you Duane. Sadly Milo passed away some time ago, cancer. There’s a thread here if you care to find it.
  20. Butch asked me to post this for your interest as he’s having some trouble ATM
  21. Oh so much gore! There could be kids out there seeing this. I mean you can see it’s braces, insides...everything! Grotesque!
