I am currently feeling every inch of my 66 years & 69 days but I had the time of my life today. I worked alongside a really terrific group of people who wanted to put something back to those less fortunate. Now to our guests: they didn't grumble to me about how life had dealt them a bad hand. They enjoyed themselves. I was able to joke with people, discuss The Knights & The Jets, Centrelink, the NSW Government, the government’s current stance on climate change & lots more.

One bloke had a bet with me about next year’s Rugby League Grand Final. One fellow kept food up to me during the day - a sausage sanger, meat on a stick, watermelon and even a pancake - all because I hunted around & found out who had the phone cards for him. Plus Peter who I took in to make his application for a birth certificate just about pumped my arm off when he was leaving.
