Something To Love by Jason Isbell

A track from Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit’s album Nashville Sound.
A wistful track that speaks of deep roots and a legacy that may or may not see fruit in the current day.

At Least It’s Not A Monorail¬†

George Street in Sydney (and others) have looked like this for months (years) now while they put in ‘light-rail’ (don’t call them trams, it seems).
At least it’s reduced traffic volumes already.

Footy Tipping 2017 – NRL Round 17 / AFL Round 15

Still not a lot of clarity.
AFL looked a little more dependable with only one unexpected result as Adelaide seem to have developed a wobble or two.
The eight as it is now will not be the eight at the end of the season.
NRL has a few teams that were supposed do all right leaving their run until late.
Canberra and Penrith qualify in this regard.
It will be interesting to see how the Broncos hold up over the next three or four rounds.

NRL (last round 4/7; season tally 79/118)
Saint George
North Queensland

AFL (last round 7/9; season tally 69/117)
Western Bulldogs
North Melbourne
Greater Western Sydney
Port Adelaide

Something Fishy

Out on this morning’s walk.
I passed on lobster mornay for breakfast.

Vending Machine

The place I’m staying at has a new vending machine. 
You have to be over 18 to use it.

Boo! Sydney! How Could You?

I’ve arrived in Sydney and it’s 13 degrees and drizzling.
Ripped off big time!

Hello, Old Friend

Off again tomorrow.
Looking slightly worse for wear after the last trip, too. Oh well.
