Hi Cover 2021,
Many thanks indeed, it never seems to amaze me of how many new ones I come across out there, that I haven't got, I'm certainly very interested in a number of them you list:-
Mildura VIC 3500, I don't have
Murray Bridge SA 5253, I don't have
Oakleigh VIC 3166, I don't have
Rozelle NSW 2039 ( hand written addressed to USA), I don't have this, would be nice as a placeholder.
South Yarra VIC 3141, I don't have
Glenelg SA 5045, I don't have
I don't have any of yours, you seem to have some interesting named ones, I would really like to get them all off you, how can I please?
Just something about me, I have fond memories of Australia, growing up in Brisbane, Southport, as a child. We used to go to lots of places around us, I went to Musgrave Hill State School, which was a short walk from our house 124 Smith Street, Southport. We used to play all around our area, I remember a little stream by the race course we played in, at the time we were there was a bad bush fire, one of my good friends at school, his famially moved up to Darwin, shortly after they had a very bad tornado hit, (Kevin Corsley), I often think about him. Hope they all pulled through, even though I was from England he was a good true friend. Me and my brother used to end up in fights a lot, not because we started it, it was because we were British, those were the days being chased by the kids mothers holding a broom, yet they starred it.
My father worked for The Gold Coast City Council, laying big storm pipes the same diameter as him tall 6ft, there was even a picture of him in the paper at the time, along with two others.
I always thought Australia was a fantastic place, we had to come home, unfurtunately my mum got home sick, and my sister couldn't handle the heat, it was always touch and go, it put her life very much in danger because of the condition she had at the time, she grew out of it long ago, and has a famially in Canada.
