I Wanna Hold your Hand
Hi A & C, You guys are just amazing! What this country has given you, you have also given back. You haven't been tourists for a long time now. You are always ready to roll up your sleeves, to jump in and make your contribution to - whatever it is. It is one of the many things we love about you. Your enthusiasm and zest for life is legendary. Doing ok here - still have my "broken" wing and now battling a bout of bronchitis - must have run over a black cat this month I think - but. still upright and walking around (albeit sounding as though I'm barking up a lung most of the time) so, it's still a good day! :) Love you guys. Well done!! J & T xxx

Leaving Friends
As usual, great blog. Sorry to hear that your great friends are leaving you, although it sounds as if they might be back before the end of the year. Jack and Jill. You two certainly do wonders with your naming: i.e. kangaroojack. Love it. Take Care and ENJOY

Christmas in July (or June, in this case)
Hey kids, Great blog as per usual. Pleased to see that you are keeping up the tradition. Christmas in July ... been around in NSW probably around .. I don't know exactly - probably about 25 years and, supposedly started by a homesick Irishman who was here at Christmas time one year and it was stinking hot, as usual! He missed the traditional Northern Hemisphere Christmas so, came up with the idea of Christmas in July when our temperatures were colder. And, the rest they say, is history .... It's a really big thing in the Blue Mtns here every year:) I will be out of action for the next few weeks as I am headed for the chopping block on Thursday. In hospital overnight then in a splint for 4 weeks. As it's my right hand, use will be limited so, probably no blogging for awhile. Otherwise, all fine here. Love, Lefty :) xoxox

Happy Days
What a fantastic gathering that would've been! I guess the story of Cindy's grandparents was not uncommon back then, sadly, what a treat to get to watch the documentary with her and her family. I love the everyday stories that everyone has, in a way that's the magic of blogging (or a documentary!), sharing them with a wider audience, nobody is without a good story. Here's to many more travelblogging meet ups!

Hi Rachael, thanks for your message, we had an absolute blast, and the documentary was just amazing, what was also great was to be able to put a face to the name, though Dancing Dave has a face that only a mother would love. Our regards Kangaroiojack

Great tales!
How fabulous--the TBers meet-up, the happy ending on the War Baby's parent's tale and the story of Ken's Pride of Australia medal! And Jo [blogger=16935]--what is the Travelblog Album Thread? I'm met so many TBers in Bolivia and Peru with whom I'm still close, and I'd love to post photos of our sweet meet-ups and see those of others, too. Caroline--best wishes on getting off those crutches soon and hopping about like a proper Kangaroo!

Thank you so much and sorry about the balls ;)
I cant thank you guys enough for squeezing in time and fitting in with our last minute altered plans - none of us new the episode was going to air until thursday night. It was especially poignant watching it as my grandmother passed away only a couple of months ago. As Jan says, sad and wasted years but also a very happy ending - two ends of time neatly tied. Wars rarely give that opportunity. My sister was showing her french backpackers she is hosting that you can eat Kangaroo and had no idea of your blogger name so I found it hilarious when she turned up with Kangaroo Balls! Was really interesting talking to everybody about blogging, you raised many questions Id never thought about before - why do we blog? It seems we all have our different reasons, but im glad we do, our community is truly awesome. Meeting you both with the absolute pleasure of seeing Dave and Denise again, along with the bloggers I met in Sydney, is a bonus I never thought about when I decided to type my first blog. I really do have to say that you both are awesome ambassadors for our country. Your prolific blogging reflects your amazing quest for adventure in a land you came to to explore - and you certainly have done that. Some of your blogs twig old memories, others make me go..oh we have that in Australia???. Well done and dont stop blogging or travelling...keep in touch - you have cannons to fire ;)

Hey Cindy we had an awesome time, why are you saying sorry for the Kangaroo balls, I am a confused carnivore I love meat , but I love animals, so may be this makes me a hypocrite but they are two different things in my mind. Awesome time/awesome people. Kj

Travel Bloggers Unite!!
Hi guys, What an amazing story! I'll bet there wasn't a dry eye in the house when the TV programme aired. So sad and so many wasted years but, finally, a story with a happy ending :). So pleased you got to meet Dave, Denise and Cindy, our fellow bloggers. Now perhaps, you'll no longer be giving us a hard time because you hadn't met any of them. :) Sounds as though you all had a fantastic time and, what a gathering to meet at. Caroline, hope that your injuries are much better by this. Love you guys. J & T xoxoxo

Indian Restaurants in Perth
Really enjoyed your blog, mate, fascinating stuff. Indian near Freo - Maya in Market Street central Freo, exceptional but pricy; Mother India in East Freo, cheep and cheerful and very tasty, the Cove on Canning Highway near North Lake Road is in a romantic old house, or my current favourite Copper Chimney on South Terrace South Freo, corner of Jenkin st, is excellent South Indian fare at a great price. There's curry aplenty in Freo!!

Poor Stewie,
Well the time for decision came and poor Stewie was sent to the sale yards last week! Money or a pet? Hard decision but there you go, too big too eat, too valuable to keep. Farewell Stewie, you earned us a lovely $2.30 for each of your kgs! Thank you.

Ouch!!!
Ohh, Caroline! Ouch!! Sorry to hear about your accident. Goes to show how easily something can happen, even when we are being careful. Thank goodness you were wearing jeans and suitable footwear at the time. At least they would have helped to reduce the effect of your injuries. Still painful though. Hope that you are soon back to normal and soon looking forward to some more bush-bashing with friends. Guess the next challenge of the Work Week Hustle will have to be put on hold for awhile. :) Lots of love and, take it easy on those crutches. J & T xxx

Work Week Hustle
Hi Fit-Bit Fanatics, Work Week Hustle ... is that like Soft Shoe Shuffle - fit-bit style?? Caroline ... afraid you are going to have to pick up the pace a bit this week kid, as we can't let these blokes beat us or we'll never hear the end of it. Andy ... you are going to have to be on your mettle now you know. The gauntlet has been thrown down so, you had better watch yourself as it's now going to be a no-holds-barred hustle from here on, you realise that, don't you? However, congrats on your weight-loss - well done! That's phenomenal! You are going to have to let Ted into your secret of controlled starvation. He seems to be more into a seafood diet at the moment - see food and eat it! A habit I am going to have to break him out of. :) Lots of love to you both. J, T & Co. xoxoxo

Jetty
Not to be picky, but I am!! 1,865 metres maybe!! We were lucky enough to see the underwater acquarium. Loved it. Too bad about the weather, but as you say it is needed. We, too needed the rain, all 2 inches of it (I just can't get away from inches!!) 5cm I guess!! Take Care.
