Hi there Sherie
Wow, we’ve got some chat to happen here – your last post really rang an accord with me.
Firstly, I’m in the same town as Kaz as well – but nope, am not going, but will be able to watch it on the teev, when I get home from work and the gym. Though, if the clouds that are brewing up come to something, it could be potentially a stop start arve/evening … let’s hope not. And they’re not really forecasting it for today.
I like Khawaja as well – and mark this name down – I reckon Jake Lehmann will represent Australia in all three forms of the game. Remember Sherie, you read it here first. I wonder what odds I can get on that? :)
It’s also a major pity about Pat Cummins … he could have developed into a superstar fast bowler, but his injuries are letting him down. It must be so frustrating for him.
Yes, the matured version of Mr Hewitt has come ahead in leaps and bounds since his arrogant youthful years – I guess it must be it – loaded with talent and the arrogance comes through. Maturity could also be due to his marriage and kids?
I love horses as well – used to ride them a lot when I was growing up on our farm, and we had an ex-thoroughbred on our property – only it was a galloper from the picnics; but holy smoke, even a picnic thoroughbred can certainly travel.
We went down to Melbourne to see Black Caviar run in her 17th race – and were a part of the inaugural cheer squad for her – we assembled at the far end of the straight at Moonee Valley and after Race 1, our group (of 50 or so) walked down the straight, and then were assembled in the first tier of the grandstand at the 50 metre mark – was the most sensational night. So many memories – and we got to pat her afterward and got photos.
One of my all time faves (and my Dad’s ALL time fave) was Apache Cat. What a ripper he was – and since Dad passed, I now have a tatt with The Cat’s face on it – with his magnificent white blaze as well. It’s very special.
