In hindsight, posting that picture should get me banned. That kaftan is a furken disgrace. Definitely a guru look though. WTF did Roussos sing anyway? I'm sure he was famous for being the only fat hairy male singer in a dress until Boy George came along.

I might put that Roussos album cover as my avatar. Pisser. Is that his fish and chip shop in the background?

I've been to Morwell. Twice.

A friend of my Mum's lives there.

Cool. People don't generally come here unless they really really have too. Can you remember where in the town? It's not that big a joint, I might even know her. Must have been exciting for you coming here, being the major holiday resort it is and all.

Actually, its good cycling country around here. Plenty of different roads to train on and a lot of variety - flats, climbs, mountains, nice scenery, plenty of circuits without having to ride on the same roads etc.

I think it was Connor Court or something. It wasn't too far from the shop(s) and the railway. Morwell seemed to have a villagey feel to it.

Depends which way you come into the town. if you come in through the Rose gardens (which are nice BTW) it's ok. The old part of town is nice. If you come in via some other ways it has a kind of post apocalyptic charm about it - overburden dumps, 500MV electricity towers, power stations, open cut coal mines, disused gas works etc.

I'm walking distance to the train station and shops. Probably Connan Crt, which is about 2kms from the train station, near Maccas(had to check the street index). If it was Charles Court or Collins St they they are only a block or so from my joint.

Nah, mate that's just a distant unpleasant memory. the boys moved on from that within a few posts. Far more important topics to discuss like whether to teach kids to ride bikes using training wheels, the merits of carbon fibre seat bags, are padded bras false advertising.....deep and meaningful stuff like that.

Maybe I should introduce them to Demis Roussos over there and scare them all back here?

Well, I look too - but it's no fun talking to yourself, so I don't bother posting.

You reckon I have that much influence with the boys?

If they want to come back, they will - but I think the discontent had probably been building for some time and KB's actions just provided the final push.
