          Thank you Leanne. I can always watch this image and although it’s 31 years ago, it gives me a warm feeling every time.

          Thank you Jaskenka. It was taken at the summer house of my parents. I was there this week and the old school trash bin was still there (At the same spot!)

      In the late 70’s I was living in a small country city called Whyalla. A bunch of us Tech College students went on a bus trip to the big smoke (Adelaide) to play the University football team. We had a few beverages on the way. Don’t remember the game but I’m pretty sure we lost. I think we had a good time….can’t remember 🙂

      I think I was 15 here, so 2001. I have tried to steal someone’s boat and paddle using a random piece of board.

      I married that young lady 15 months after this was taken, so we are almost at 29 years of wedded bliss!

        Not fair Rob, 15 years ago and we are supposed to guess which one is you?  I can only be sure of half the group. Sitting on the floor?

            All is clear!  That’s Guy Martin, right there!!  (If you don’t get the reference, watch ‘Closer to the Edge’ openly available on youtube, about road racing on the aisle of Man.  TT racing; a special kind of madness: great movie well worth a watch.

            Had a lurcher when I was a lad.  Lovely dog.  We had a lot of time in the fields together.  My training was not that hot.  Could walk up on a lamped rabbit and slip the leash 10 feet away, dog would run in other direction.  lol:  Blame the trainer, not the dog!!

      Dorothy-Dec 1978 So this is definitely a walk in the past, taken the night my best friend and I went out to celebrate her new job and I met my husband (and married 6 months later) of 40 years.  No longer have the dress, never mind the rest we will just say I have changed a little over the years. lol  Love everyone’s photo’s and insights to little bits of their lives, very cool idea Chris Pook!

      I decided that it is close enough to Monday for this throwback to be resuscitated! Came across this photo of my girls when they were little (one is a teen now – they are three years apart) and strangely, this photo speaks volumes about their personalities NOW. Hopefully it makes you smile!

      I was lucky enough to have the privilege of transferring some of my parents’ slides several years ago. Lots of treasures! This one shows when I developed my most well-known look: the lip-nose scrunch!
