Thanks Garry! You go and have an amazing time and don't forget to do that blog...I shall be checking!
Its all come round really quick hasn't it. I shall be off in 6 days now. Still terrified but I know it will be fantastic. I shall miss the little chats with you and Flo though but I am sure we shall all stay in touch. I shall think of you at the airport with your little Netto carrier bag going out, and sporting hat with corks on coming back...along with all Hilary's shopping!!!! Enjoy every minute of it Garry. We shall all miss you!
And don't evre lern to spel, yu woodnt be the same! x

Hey Garry!!!!!

This will teach me to check the OZ/NZ forum more often!!!!!!

You are more than welcome!! Though, all I have been able to do is be a chatroom buddy...
I have enjoyed our discussions and hope to pick up where we left off upon your return home!!! Someone has to give me the "real scoop" on James!!!!! Oh, and avoid hitting any kangaroos - though you probably would only feel a slight bump since you'll be driving that caravan.

May Hilary and you have a wonderful holiday together and hopefully you won't mind my wishing you both a very Happy 25th Anniversary!! Enjoy the ADVENTURE!!!!!!! ;)

(Please tell me you're leaving the Sgt. Pepper's outfit at home... Then again, you could strike it rich on the Beatles Inpersonator Tour.)

ps: Beerman is just grand!!! Especially after that first martini!!

Hey Garry!!

Damn, I'm jealous!!! An anniversary trip to Oz......do you need anyone to carry your luggage??? There is still time for you to book our tickets......

My sincerest congratulations on your 25th anniversary!!! Not too many people make it that far anymore!!

And thank you for your wishes...yes, all is well, but I am working like a sled dog in the Iditerrod.....many hours for kibble!!!! The martinis help though...

A bit of advice however.....watch out for the Aussie beer....it's a killer!! Ask James, he'll lie and say it's weak, but don't believe him. I've had more than my share of miserable hangovers after one (or 5) too many sheaf stouts!!! The Fosters, on the other hand...

Enjoy your trip and take lots of pics. And remember: Sex on Bondi Beach is only allowed after 10pm local time!!!!!! In the winter...summer hours vary......
