Hitched up with my brother Colin Bickley and old school pal Nigel Broughton whilst on a trip in Melbourne Australia, such a difference from Barnoldswick!!https://oneguyfrombarlick.co.uk/downloa ... ew&id=2141

Yes, it was great fun catching up on the last 45 years of our lives.

Lots of common themes and the shared experiences of our younger days

Nigel, are you resident there now? Please can you pop into politics and give us the benefit?
Is that you on the right in the dark jumper?

I think you might be confusing our Broughton members Stanley.

I feared I might be, it's confusing! Apologies if I have offended anyone.
Thanks Wendy, I need a minder at times!

I think the lad at the front in the dark jumper is one of the Bickley brothers along with the lad with the beard. Nigel will be the one between them from memory of nearly 60 years ago when we were all at school together.

Ian is correct with the who’s who.

Yes, I think Richard was the political philosopher.

I am living in Melbourne. Just coming into summer here.

All the best to all

Actually, Stanley, our first week of summer has been appalling on this side of the country.

For the last 3 days we have had driving rain, cold and windy with tops of no more than 15.

Although further north around Sydney the fires are a great concern. 99 active fires this morning and 45 of those not under control.

It's a big country with many contrasts.

Don't worry we have had lots of coverage of the NATO meeting, Brexit and the upcoming election.

All the best

Nigel

Yes, the Maz travelogue of her trip to Tassy illustrated that. Never mind, you will still have better weather than us barring catastrophes like fires and droughts. On the whole I think I prefer Barlick weather...
Dip into some of the other posts as well Nigel. I reckon you could get hooked!
