215 - You Are Going Where!!!!

Here we are in the depths of winter.

Every Geriatric Gypsie, Blonde Haired Fossil, Grey Nomads, Nuters, Do Gooders and hoards of noooooooodies, have undertaken their usual migration from the freezing depths of mother Australia, to the warmer climes of OZ.
So what are the Retro Roamers doing…………………..going the other way aren’t we! Are you for real, the cry went up!

Yep, afraid so. So on July 4th we are heading out of Coffs Harbour on the Virgin big bird to Melbourne. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!!!!! Now I haven’t been to Melbourne, since Molly Meldrum interviewed Prince Charles, John Farnham was hanging out with Sadie the Cleaning Lady, and Glen Shorock from the Little River Band had hair. 

Our time there, round about two and a bit weeks. A compassionate reason takes us there. Might have to catch up with my great rugby league mates, Billy, Cam and Cooper. We will just hang out together, and sink a couple real beers, xxxx of course. I am sure they will be chuffed to see me.
Now I could be in trouble here however.  My  wardrobe consists of three pairs of boardies, two Tee shirts and a pair of thongs.  How good am I going to look at Spencer Street Train Station, in my best Billabong boardies, Byron Bay Tee Shirt and the only pair of Havies, I own.  I will probably get arrested for indecent exposure. O’h well, looks like I will have to go to Vinnies..

So stay tooooooooooooned

214 - Sawtell

What again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. Yep always seem to gravitate to this part of the world.

Well what are we doing............................sort of house sitting. We were here 12 months ago, so it is basically a repeat of that session in 2012. The RetroLiner is all tucked away and in storage, and the Val, well the Val, is screaming in pain to be retired. Suffer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So until something happens, which Centrelink is doing everything in their power to continually beat the bride up, which keeps us here for the foreseeable future. We are land locked till further notice.

Might have to come out of retirement and go back to relief management. Ho, he, ho, hum, so much for being retired, and travel this brown land.

Stay tooooooooooooooned but don't hold your breath.
