I'm awaiting Finagle's revenge.

Well, I was nervous when I went for the test/interview. No reasons, baring our friend Finagle's modification of Murphy's Law (anything that can go wrong, will, at the worst possible time). Finagle did his humble best crashing the computer system, letting me think I didn't have a vital piece of paper, but against the odds, we did win through. And yes, I got the same mark in the little test as my wife, so you are stuck with us. I thought his performance with my debit card at Tamar Marine more petty nuisance than his normal effort (I've got sinker molds and a new tank for the boat - you'd have thought he would have weighed the disaster potential of these and left me to it.) I did not break a leg walking up the gorge. The tea did not poison me. A peacock - despite being in the tree above us did not poo on my head or the tea....

So now Barbs has gone for her CT scan. Results not for a few days. Let's hope and pray this is not it.


  1. Dave,
    I noticed that you've bought some sinker molds. I was able to get mine through this mob, for a really good price. The actual store is in Coffs Harbour, and is huge. Don't know if it's any help, but good luck with the fishing.

  2. heh, I have their catalogue next to me. - It was nice to actually see the stuff real-life -- I don't use a lot of sinkers - but we use the big snapper sinkers to get down in the currents here - They come in at more than 3 bucks each on island, so I figured 12 + I win.

    1. Dave, I'm in Coffs so if you ever want me to look, hold, show anything, give me a yell. I can head over with a tablet and a skype call for you to 'xplore.

  3. Haven't fished out at Flinders but have done a lot of fishing out at Waterhouse island and up off Tomahawk, and Eddystone when I used to live in Tas. One thing i do remember fondly is the great fishing to be had down there.

  4. Congratulations to you both, I'm so glad you both got your citizenship done. Enjoy the party and thank you for becoming Aussies :)
