Anyone for tennis?

You never go wrong if you quote Monty Python
You can't go wrong if you throw in a Monty Python quote in your blog entry. Thanks for doing that, it made me smile. Because the quote was deliberate, wasn't it? /Ake

Anyone for tennis?

Yes the Monty Python reference was intended.
Tennis as a blood sport, who would've thunk it.

The Aussie Open
Each year epic battles, usually the difference between winning and losing is self belief...then the winners of human. This years Women's Final was one of the best I've seen...on TV. I can only imagine how amazing it would have been watching it in the stands at Centre Court. I've watched many matches live in Sydney...used to score tickets for the Indoor Finals for many years. I've played White City Centre Court as a kid...played an aging Ken Rosewall years later who whipped me solid . But to be at a Melbourne Aussie Open final...reckon from your blog I've gotta make that a priority. Off the couch and onto Centre Court. See you there next year?

Yeah I'll be there next year.
We usually go for the first week but I'm now keen to go to a final. As for Ken Rosewall, I have spoken to him. Actually he spoke to me. He said, "Thank you ball boys". Yes, I was ball boy at the 1971 NSW Open, which he won by the way. See you there next year.

The Open...a great time.
We had the chance to go to the Open back in 2008 and had a grand time while in Melbourne. Really enjoyed your blog. Here is ours from back then......

Work work work
Talk about a slave driver. Man you're on holidays and all you can think of is that others have to work work work. Or is it that you love work so much...but only if you can sit and watch it for hours?

Addressing the Imbalance
Delighted to read this tongue in cheek ditty...enough to put off those who can't do beautiful without only thinking of their wallets...enough to entice those who can see through your cunning plan. You can't say too much about how good northern Queensland is or it will be overrun by overseas tourists!!! Much better to keep a few secrets to ourselves I reckon. Beautiful one day...aaah.

Queensland--Beautiful and Bank Breaking Everyday!
Been there, done that! Bravo to you two intrepid travelers for exploring your mythical northern reaches, so you can tell us clueless all about it, and we don't have to go broke doing so. Ho--dead kangaroos, a rain forest overrun by wild tourists (surely in large, loud groups), and an expensive cat sail where you get to empty the toilets. Thank goodness for utopian delights through the Whitsundays and plentiful, hedonistic sunset wine that can make up for much--ya done good! Thank goodness I don't need to be there and do that!
