Way back in the early 70s, this guy was my hero. Long black hair, bright blue eyes, and footy shorts so tight they appeared painted on!
Funny but true - growing up in NSW, which was/is a real Rugby League state, my family had very little knowledge of that game. When I was about eight years old, every Twisties packet had a small plastic Rugby League football inside, dressed in team colours. I remember asking my mum about the one I'd got, which was adorned with green and red stripes and featured a white rabbit, with the title "Rabbitohs" emblazoned across it. "Oh," said mum, "that's the Rabb-EET-ohs (her pronunciation), they're an Italian team."
How the other kids laughed at me.... *g*
It's been a funny week too. I spent some time sorting through files for a team member who left us a couple of weeks ago, and will be flitting between my branch and his while his replacement is in training over the next fortnight. Not that I mind; the branch is within walking distance of home. I finished yesterday there, knocked off at my usual time, did my week's grocery shopping and was still home before 6pm. Yay for early marks!
