Hi All

As I write this it is Thursday night and I am still in Wagga. By the time this posts around 4pm tomorrow I should just about be at the end of a five hours drive home.  I have dinner plans tomorrow night and again on Saturday night and errands to run on Saturday so please bear with me if it takes a while to get to emails. 

My host, the good Chaplain headed off to a Dining In Night tonight.  Seeing him in his Red Sea Rig (that is the uniform he is wearing) brings back lots of memories of all the dining ins I attended when in the service. It must be 25 years since I attended one.  Are they still as much fun as they used to be?   I guess that is something else that I should write blog post about sometime.   Dining In Nights, I am sure, are specific to the services, formal dinners with lots of special traditions. 

Once again I had to take one for the team and have a photo taken so that you civilian ladies could see an example of the RAAF Red Sea Rig… that is my story and I am sticking to it!

On with this week’s show and tell.  Some lovely quilts and bags again, as usual.


So far for 2043 we have sent off 2636 laundry bags
