Hi Eliza, Pete,
Love the photos! You all look so happy! Couldn't have just been the Guinness! So happy that you have decided to continue your travels. Why not???? You might as well enjoy it for as long as you can! Bet you can't wait for your Dad to visit...I know he is very excited.

Hi Pete & Eliza,

Great to catch up on your travels and read all the messages. I only just learnt to use the computer so I haven't read your site before. Mum and dad are well but they keep trying to put me to bed all the time. All I want to do is talk, eat and crawl as fast as I can, a bit like poppy silva. I am almost walking should have it mastered in the next couple of weeks then I'll create some havoc. Dad is pulling the boots on again ( I think he's a bit old but he might have a couple more years left.) Look after yourselves. Cheers Layla
gday layla,
you seem to be a fast learner, obviously coming from your mothers side not your fathers. Good to hear your still playing footy Doc, i ran into a couple of barooga boys in my local the other week, when i said you were my cousin they just laughed and made fun of me. Aparently their dads right into the footy club but they dont play, bloody cant think of their names now. anyway went to the grand national races yesty in liverpool had a huge day so am a bit crook at the moment. going to get to footy training this week im living in the zone of last years premiers, the west wildcats probably wont play coz got a lot of travelling planned leaving in july and im pretty proned to injury at the best of times. weak in know. Eliza wants to play touch footy but you need to be able to catch a ball for that, im not sure she can!!! keep us up to date with footy news, i suppose your going for another flag and b&f and tash you will have to listen to all the crap mid week again.
good luck cant remember these boys name but they left london a while ago anyway brothers they were. seeya

Hey guys how you going?
Good photos of ireland looks like heaps of fun. Our footy season kicks off in 2 weeks and i'm ready to have a red hot go in the centre and hope to get plenty of it this year, wish you were here to watch me, but you will have to wait until next year to see how i play, i still got 2 years left.
Cross Country starts next week, i have been training hard for that.
Any way best let you go i gotta go cook tea, LOL. Cheers Rooster
(By the way LOL means Laugh Out Loud in case you didn't know) Catchya

Hi Eliza,

Thought I would send a hello and hope you guys are doing well and still having an adventrure trevelling around the globe. You have probably already heard the news about Fiona and Brad, Charlotte is so cute and I think she takes after Fiona's side. Bryce and I have 8 weeks to go and very much looking forward to it all. By the time you come back to Melbourne and visit you will have two little girls to see. Enjoy reading your messages and hearing what you get up to. Take care and keep having a great time.

Nicole xxoo
Hi Nic,

From Aunty Rac - Friday, 1st September 2006, 01:57 (GMT)
A big hello to you both. Long time between chats. Hope the holiday has been good and look forward to seeing all your photos. Enjoying travelling with you both. All is well here in Aussie land, finals fever has hit. Chook plays in A grade netball final tomorrow, Sat, then going to watch Roc and Doc on Sunday in Cobram. Would be boring life without the ol' sport. I have been selected to play masters netball in Melb next Friday night, so trying to get fit for that, but have been umpiring heaps of finals all over the state. The bus trip home is the scariest part, but a lot of fun, bit like busters fishing trips, the esky gets packed first. Kylz and Andy are heading to Fiji for a week when the season finishes, he thinks he better spoil her in the break, then he heads to Thailand for Carlton footy trip, unsure when. Then he may be going to Ireland to play, but I will let you know. Teen and Josh have left Perth, bought a camper trailor and hit Broome, picked up jobs in a tavern and loving it, will head to Darwin, Cairns etc don't know for how long!!
Buster and I just staying home and working working working. Buster and kevvy still playing lots on the farm, shearing time now, so very busy. Best go, I just go on and on otherwise. Luv yas and missin yas. Aunty Rac and Clan

From maree caldow - Sunday, 7th January 2007, 09:05 (GMT)
hi guys, how good is this!!
we can see & read about all of your travels. I got these details from your mum at the trots last night.
So now I have your mobile and e/mail - I won't be missing you as much.
Can't wait to have you both stay with us when you come home in March.
We're all good - busy racing all over the state - all good though! Kids enjoying not having to go to school!!!
Take care.
Happy travelling
Thanks ree, good to get a message no one seems to be sending them lately. There wont be too many new photos coming up coz we dont have any trips planned befor we get home for the wedding in march. Hope your getting lots of winners
From Aunty Rac - Wednesday, 21st February 2007, 03:24 (GMT)
Hi to you both, wow, the photos look great. Pete so proud of you beating those bulls, knew you could do it, you speedster. Too bad about the knee Eliza, next time!!!!!!!!! Another year begins but into Feb already. Corza turned 18, he can pub it with you now Pete, SCARY. Chook just sending out invites for her 18th, my baby 18, YUK.
Kylz 21st in May and Buster 50th in Dec, how busy am I going to be, planning and partying, sounds all good. Teen and Josh now settled in Swan Hill, we are shifting them into their house this Sunday, bloody good parents thats what I say!! Greggy reckons poor Rooster is not allowed to leave home cause it is too quiet with no-one home. Poor Benno. Buster's dear old dad Leo passed away on 24.01.07, so that was very sad, but good that he didn't linger on being ill for too long, still sad too lose the first grandparent for our girls. His mum is doing well though, so that's comforting. Kylz back in Melbourne after 3 mths Uni break over Summer, but she did work at the RSL Club and earn't a little bit of spondoola, yippee. Now has a full time job in a shoe designer warehouse thingy and loving it, going to Uni part-time doing fashion design course. She informed me last night that she has gone from blonde chick to brunette babe. Not sure about that. Anyways, best go, hope to see you in March but know how busy you will be catching up with everyone. Will be good when you are back in Aussie land for good, Lags would agree. Keep on enjoying your trip,admire you both for your courage to do it.
Lots of love Aunty Rac and Clan - take care
Great to hear all of the gos from back home racca, mum tries but she has a mind blank every time i speak to her. Must be scary having the chook and parrott legal to walk thru the swinging doors now but finally legal for a change.haha. Be home in three weeks, time is going fast cant believe it, only 9 weeks til i run the marathon, ran 21km this morning for the second time, feel so tired afterwards so the 42km will be a test at this stage. Oh well should be ok. Put a deposit on our trip home last week, which is a 12 week overland trip from London to Ouyen which leaves early september and is a bus ride thru 20 countries inc europe, turkey, iran( unless war is declared), pakistan, india, nepal, tibet, thailand, malaysia, indonesia, east timor fly into darwin and drive down the guts again into ouyen early december just in time for busters 50th. Spewen we will miss the big 21st tho i hate missing out!!! Im working with a fella from lockington can you believe, mark mccmannus, says he played tennis with tina back in the early days, small world i used to play against him in footy when i was at golden square. Good to hear from you and cant wait to get home and see you all, living in london is great but lately we havnt done any travelling and are stuck in working mode saving pounds for our trek home and come september i think we will be well and truly ready to come home, much to lags delight. c u soon
poida and lize
From From Aunty Rac - Monday, 30th April 2007, 06:35 (GMT)
Hi Poida & Lize
WOW - How proud am I of you, a bloody marathon, not many can brag about this one, this is the ELITE ATHLETES CLUB I reckon, anyways we can start that club up ourselves, cause don't think there will be too many joining us. How did you pull up, did you chaff, did you cramp, did you change your running style throughout to get there without stopping. Well done. How did you go Lize watching and waiting, would have been forever, everyone needs a top notch support chick, be proud of your acheivments too. Your time in Aussie land went so fast, but was great to catch up for fully 5 mins. Can't be greedy. The big 21st in 5 days, my stomach turns over everytime I think about it. All organised though, should be lots of fun, just hope we don't have any gate crashers, the RSL Club has put extra security on for us, they have been absolutely fantastic with us, they said that all the staff want to work that night, ha ha. We have a great powerpoint organised, so you will both be there in spirit and pictures. Will take lots of photos for you. I have asked Ro and the Bopper to make a speech, but Kylie doesn't know that, she said she doesn't want anyone getting up making her sound like an idiot - I have news for her - she is very blonde really.
Anyway's best go, take care, luv ya's heaps, will have the broom there for you both so people can throw you around.
Luv Aunty Rac and crew XXXX
Yeah done it easy. Pulled up very sore but that only lasted 2 days and then went back to work, she wouldnt let me take any more days off something about holidays to save up for or whatever!! The big 21st ay, i bet pop is excited about getting about and mixing it with all the carlton guys. Going to be a great night i hate missing these big shows, first anzac day clash at the G, and now this 21st all in a space of ten days. I may actually go to footy training 2morow night the season over here starts saturday and im going to play for the Putney Magpies, i dont think they are much chop but it sounds like they hit the turps pretty hard so im pretty keen for a run. Good luck with the 21st and if russel is back from the cattle muster in time for it tell him poida said gday, and im still waiting for him to pay for the damages of the rear axels he ripped off my 4wd. IDIOT!!.
From Bopper - Tuesday, 1st May 2007, 11:53 (GMT)
Poida, Poida, Poida You made it. That is awesome. So happy for you. That is such a great achievement. I think mum is more proud then you probably are. Well done to you to eliza, good support.
It was great to catch up when you were here, cant wait till you get back. Good ol Kylz and walky talky's 21st this weekend so starting to get pumped up. Russell will be sure to make an appearance so I will be sure to say a big howdy to him for you both. Anyways keep up the photos. Take care and stay safe
Love yas xoxooxoxoxoxox
Josh said: listen hear cock, let me pull over i am right in the mood for you!!!
How was the 21st, i hope russel was behaved and didnt screw the night up for you all. Just played me first game of footy for the putney magpies today, problem was i got absolutely spastically drunk last night and somewhere along the line had a few beers with the coach, so when i turned up to play he had already taken me out of the team thinking, there is no way that caldow will turn up today. But little did he know i have the heart of a lion and pushed thru the pain barrier. Whent all right as well. hooroo
From Rooster - Thursday, 10th May 2007, 11:41 (GMT)
Hey poida bro... so glad to hear u made the team! sounds like the footy is pretty serious over there! anyway i was just guna let u know that im playing my first senior game this week against beulah and im pretty excited and thort i'd beta let me big bro know! your like the first person i've told and i wanted u to know!! chris baker rang me and congratulated me and gave me some tips and to remember it!! so yer thats about it...mum is a bit worried but yer thats nuffin knew. ill talk to ya soon buddy! catchya Rooster

oh yer im wearing no. 4
Bloody ripper roost, i told ya that you would get a run if you trained with them. Dont be too nervous just take in the advice that bakes and the older guys give you, and play basic footy. NO U TURNS!! and dont go doing what i done last weekend, that is, drinking copious amounts of beer the night befor, it doesnt help. No doubt you will play up forward so remember you dont get in the paper for handballs and if you take a mark outside your kicking distance, go back line em up, run in, fake the kick, run round the guy on the mark, show him the ball, take a bounce and kick the goal. Thats good that you got the number 4, its back in good hands again, the guy who wore it last year was a spaz. Top stuff!! good luck.
From Steam train - Tuesday, 15th May 2007, 11:41 (GMT)
Field Mouse I took a specky over Lance Whitnall at the 21st. Only problem I didn't get off the ground. Hit him like a steam train. I think he might miss a couple with bruised ribs. Ro was meant to be videoing and missed the whole incident.
Good stuff steamy, you must have done some damage he didnt get a sniff against the pies on the weekend. Must be getting close to having a new one around the house to keep you on your toes, that will slow the ol steam train down a bit
From Maureen - Tuesday, 12th June 2007, 23:03 (GMT)
Loved the photos..especially the one of the dentist!!! Bet you could get a lovely set of teeth...none matching, of course!!!
Glad you had a great birthday and yes, next year will be a biggie, but remember Dad & I are many, many years older!!!
Hee Hee!

Thanks for your photos of alfie, he is soo cute cant wait to see you all in december love you xxx
