About a week and a half ago, the blokes from The Wagga Guide (famous on-line web page promoting everything about beautiful Wagga Wagga) approached Lachlan and asked if he would do a Rock Band Interview. There were 3 bands visiting Wagga Wagga as part of a Jack Daniels Promotion.
Bands from all over had competed in a competition hosted by Jack Daniels (the whisky) the 3 most voted for bands were then put on a tour on the East Coast.
Lachlan didn't get much time to investigate or do any homework on these bands as he was asked to interview them early afternoon on that day, and the bands were playing a 1 night gig that night! Never the less, he picked up his trusty CamCorder and Tripod, did a quick Google homework and thus armed hit the Capital Night Club!
You can check out the interview on this link -
The majority of the filming was done by Lachlan ('cept for the interview bits). Lachlan edited the film adding the captions and had to compress the file for upload to YouTube.
Not bad for a couple of hours notice!!
Lachlan has his forklift licence and we're all very proud of him!!
Kasey and Chris are off to Albury for a cuppla days shopping and celebrating their 6 month anniversary!! Time flies while you're having fun!
Rhiannan has been very keen and going to kick boxing classes (sorta like a gym class) early in the mornings twice a week for about 2 months now. She has lost a little weight and can see an improvement in her overall fitness.
We've had a slight problem with our new Subaru Impreza (nnoooooooo......) When we took delivery of it there was a stone chip on the bonnet. We were told that it would be fixed, BUT they want to respray the whole bonnet! Problem is, I don't think that they would be able to match the colour exactly, and I would rather put up with a stone chip than a bonnet that stands out because the paint is a different shade. They will fix the stone chip with a touchup and polish and then compensate us for the difference between that and a full respray. A little disappointing but it's no good spending all that money on a brand new car and not receive it in 100% condition. The dealer has been very good about it, though it did take them a little while to get around to organizing something about it.
My photography thing is coming along great. I've been discovering all about different lens filters that give better results for landscape photography. A little expensive (the polarizing filter I want is around the $65 mark) but will make a great difference in certain shots.
In 1 week I will be on leave for a month. Thank God!! The place is driving me a little loony lately. I love my job but some of the personalities make it difficult. Everyone has an opinion but it's a shame when they don't really have any idea about what it is they are talking about!
Anyway, it will be our 22nd Wedding Anniversary on the 12th July and all going well Kim and I will escape somewhere for a couple of nights. It will have to be cosy because it will be damn cold anywhere we go!!
The 1st photo for this post is of Theresa and I at Tambourine Mountain. Mum, Dad, Theresa & I went for a day trip when Matt was a baby and Dad had us pose at this palm tree out the front of St Bernards Hotel. That photo would've been taken in 1967 I think. Years later when Kim & I visited there with our kids I just couldn't resist the temptation!! Yep!....I did a Kevin Sylvester and lined up Lachlan & Kasey at the same tree!
I hope they both realize now that it is a family tradition and they have to do the same with theirs as well!!!
Anyway, that's it from me today.
Hope you are all well.
Love to all

This is a photo I found when downloading some of Kaseys' photos onto the computer for her.
Taken at Lachlans 20th birthday smash at the Capital nightclub.
Lachlan drinks Bundaberg Rum, and how coincidental that the Bundy Girls were at the club with free giveaways on his birthday.
Can't wish for a better birthday gift eh?!!
