9 August 2009Whispering Falls & The Chromite Mines – Mt Richmond Forest Park Organiser: Robyn Walsh Our day together began at 9.30am outside the Stoke Post Office which included a happy catchup chat. A very good frost was still evident on Aniseed Valley Road with numerous white patches in the shady bits. Over the first hour, we split into two groups, resulting in a segregated morning tea stop at the Falls Track junction.The leading group was ensconced on the picnic table, while the back group sprawled on the ground nearer to the main track.He knew a few girls that I hung around with in junior high and high school, and at the mention of their names, he said, “Oh, so you were part of the bitch crowd.” Um, okay. He seems surprised that I never tried it, and he suggested we do it on our first date.Then I mentioned a guy who I was close with from playing sports as a kid.

And he was clearly enjoying the show, which focused heavily on music by Taylor and his longtime musical collaborator, trumpeter , with a couple of standards and one Geggie composition thrown in for good measure.
In fact, I played Pop Warner football with him and his dad was our coach. Wrong name to mention because this guy became angry and said how this guy bullied him throughout high school and if he ever saw him today, he’d “knock his teeth down his throat” for all the torture he caused him growing up. But he insisted, “You’ll love it.” So then he proceeds to tell me (GET READY FOR THIS) that the best part of judo was this certain move that would involve me putting my foot into his groin and flipping him over.
