Sure was mate, Ron Casey asked me the questions.One question that he asked me that rattled him because I knew the answer straight away was “ who were the five Australian cricket captains who played district cricket for South Melbourne”, It was such an obscure question and I guess he thought nobody would know the answer, however it had been asked a couple of years previously and it had stuck in my mind.
Please do not ask me who they were , I cannot remember where I went to a restaurant six months ago.

Hang on I do remember them....Hasset, Johnson, Armstrong, Blackham ,Trott. The last two were way back in the past and were not as well known players as the others at that time.

    Many on here remember when chicken at Xmas & Easter was the dearest meat.

I suppose it's all Climate Change .... Stuffed up the Deer Industry and now they are a pest .      What went wrong there.

World of Sport = Happiness.  

The woodchop, Lou & Captain Blood, Bill Collins, Ron Casey, Doug Ring, the cycling machine, the handball competition,  Chicken Smallhorn scoring the longest kick, Freddy Villiers on the wogball, a pot of saveloys on the stove and of course, Uncle Doug Elliot, his Ballantyne's chocolates  and the Patra fruit juice... and Jack Elliot peering over his reading glasses into the camera telling it like it was.

Those were the daze.
