Oh yes, he exists but is renowned for having to be woken up (by me!) from his slumber when he's meant to be on the FT Bus as we departed for the day trip to Uluru. He blamed having a big night. Most of us did...so it just didn't cut it.

Thus Copper status for him is apt.

I have fond memories of Penegal....in Perth he always sat near me as he knew I wouldn't finish my wine and he happily did. He is a charming man gang and I hope you all get the pleasure of meeting him.

I'm never going to live that down, am I?

You forgot to mention our lovely lunch the other day.

I've put up my hand to look into dinners Fri, Sat & Sun
Someone upstream had a good idea for a trip to Manly plus dinner cruise, that I think may be a good Friday activity and dinner.
Saturday.. up in the air..I always enjoy Taronga Park Zoo. Ferry ride to get there & back - its so very SYD, and a great place to enjoy a good zoo.
Saturday night dinner, I have a place in mind.
Sunday.. Hmm. Bridge Climb. or watch.
Sunday night dinner. Again, have a place in mind.

Its all about the Harbour, AU animals and birds, and some excellent food
