Day 2 & 3

Our first (FOCUS') public meeting for the year was at 1pm Tuesday. This was preceded by a good aussie BBQ... there were a few hiccups including no matches to light the flipping thing... And then there was Damon's accident on Churchill Ave with all the BBQ tools tumbling all over middle of the road (Cars having slow down) but that was right at the end.

There were a number of new people which was greatly encouraging. I wasn't feeling my 100% Jolly best but managed to master some form of understandable communication with a number of the newcomers.


(Nathan the illustrious el presidente with other dudes)

(Damo flipping the snags)

(Sam talking to the ladies.. he also talked the blokes)

(Troy with generic People)

(Brothers Jones)

(Umm.... I really need to get better at names)

(Umm.... I really really need to get better at names)


(Smithers ...you idiot... and Dooda)

...Wednesday (today) was "encore FOCUS"... the same meeting for people couldn't make it to the Tuesday meeting. Before the meeting I spent an encouraging time manning the table. People kept just coming over and saying G'day. The people at FOCUS these days seem so much well... nicer.

The two girls in the photo that you can't remember the names of - my sister Julia on the right and her friend Rene on the left. :)

I was going to say that was your sister in the caption but I thought she might get offended... cause "I like have a personality of my own..."

"So hey... you are like Gus' sister".... says Jolly losing all credibility with the kids.

haha! I think she lost all right to being upset about that when I arrived at Calvin in grade 11 and on my first day a grade seven girl said "I know you! You're Julia's brother!" At uni I'm happy for her to be known as my sister! ;)

Did you sneak into those photos Jonny or was the photographer seeking you?

So what gives me more cred?

Knowing Jonny, cos he's "Famous", knowing Gus, cos he's Julia's brother or knowing Julia cos she's got a personality of her own?

Knowing Mike only gives me cred, I spose, in an online sense, a sense that I'm trying to avoid. Rather, it's the geek tag that I am trying to avoid (but failing).
