Birth­day wishes go to Rus­sell Haysom, John Knights, Caitlin Traynor, Ben Cam­brey, Ben Steers, Karli Hall, Gary Green, Damien ‘Tiger” Wil­lox, Brett Fothergill, Sally Ver­hardt, Nancy Hil­ton, Kath Smith, Macken­zie Spencer, Shaun Hull, Michael and Paula Spencer, Gavin and Ken Whit­fort, Tammy Pianta and Fay McLeod.

We’ve de­clut­tered and started pack­ing to move in two weeks.

I wrote the Avenel Ac­tiv­i­ties 1984-1991, Sey­mour So­cial Scene, 1990-2001 and for Nagambie since 2001 to now for lo­cal pa­pers. Dab­bling in each town’s events when I can still.

Now what to do with my clip­pings of scrib­blings? Well!. The Sey­mour His­tor­i­cal Mu­seum will take my 10 years of scrap­books, and Nagambie His­tor­i­cal mu­seum will take the 16 years I’ve done here so far.

So my work is not wasted, and his­tor­i­cally all the hatches, matches, dis­patches and all sorts of news will be kept for pos­ter­ity. Now to start on my 1000’s of pho­tos.
