Three Cool Cats

One Mick and two Rogers

I don't know that Beatles song, but it seemed appropriate, with the Cats bound to win on Saturday.


Kelley tells me Mick is a worry. I am surprised she just realised that!

Roger #1
Today's BBQ Stakes saw me run ~25.30, Roger ~27.30, and Helen ~29.00. Roger and Helen are picking up form, but I was very disappointed with my time, especially as it was probably my last run there for a while, as I start to focus on track.

Check page 14 of the latest R4YL magazine for Roger's picture.

A curious goose.

Roger #2
ACT election candidates will be announced later today, if anyone is interested. I believe an old friend, Roger Nicoll, is a Ginninderra candidate. Each year I look at the list of candidates, cross out the hopeless ones, and see who is left. Last time no one was left! This time I expect only Roger will be left. But we will see.

Roger used to specialise in Orienteering and was quite a good runner, competing in cross country and road races as I recall. Which may not of course be any sort of recommendation. But he was never as pushy and arrogant as today’s representatives seem to be, and so I quite like him.

Actually I know personally quite a number of the candidates including current members. But it usually doesn’t mean I want to vote for them!

Field events anyone?

I guess I will stick to track.


  1. 3 Cool Cats was originally recorded by The Coasters in 1958 and was written by Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller.

    Ry Cooder did a fantastic version on his album Chavez Ravine.

  2. I don't know. The high jump is good fun. I did try the pole vault once - very risky!
