Geese at Book Launch

In today's Canberra Times, page 10 of Times2, there are eight pictures from Melanie's book launch. A flock of geese flew in and settled down to be part of the photo shoot. The geese flew off with at least five of the books.


  1. Weston Creek Half marathon results are on the Mountain running website:

  2. Mountain running! Of course! Organisers Weston Creek athletic club. Very confusing!

  3. I always wanted to make the social pages of the Canberra Times! The bit about our muscles was a good one :)

  4. Yes Ewen, that was my goal in life too! :) We certainly look really muscly in that photo!!!!!
