Marathon
Congratulations to all who ran the marathon. A perfect day, just a bit of breeze now and then, which I didn't mind, it was cooling.

Congratulations to Ruth for appearing in film of the marathon on Sunday night ABC News, not just once, the sports report, but twice, the news highlights as well. And for winning her age group!

Visitors.
The Falconer grandchildren stayed the night: Kayleigh, Jarod, Alex and Olivia. With their mum. Breaking news: guess what? A fifth Falconer grandchild is due in November. You read it here first!









About as similar as four completely dissimilar things in a pod. And sorry, Neil, Jarod is a Bulldogs supporter, as you can see.
