Posted:WOOHOOOOO!!

so! the shakin' grape festival is THIS FRIDAY!!! & i managed to find/pinch a program!!! biggrin

carnival of the divine imagination will be performing at 8pm on friday night!!! bounce yay! not sure exactly where this performance is happening yet...but hey, murgon's not that big!! ubblol

so is anyone coming?? it's only a three hour drive from brisbane!! (which isn't as far as it sounds!! you can come straight up the highway, through gympie & then you're nearly there!!!)

seriously though, if anyone does want to make the trek to the lil place i'll be calling home for just a lil bit longer, let me know & i'll show you the sites. that shouldn't take long... ubblol

Posted:Woo!! It was so good to see a familiar face all the way out at Murgon on Friday!!! Wow! I should check these threads more often -- what a surprise it was to see you there! Nobody knew you lived all the way out THERE!

We received a mystery CD in the post today from a kind fellow who was glued to a camera the entire evening. Some of his shots from the show can be seen here --

Not that I expect him to see this thread, but I send many thankyou's into the cosmos for you and Clive (the kind photo man) who made our little visit to Murgon extra special smile

Upon your advice, we drove soooo slowly back to Brissy... I'm still tired just thinking about it. Wha. It must have been 4 hours or more. But the good news is we hit no roo's on the way home smile

Posted:Haaaaa! I LOVED this parade so much... it was lead by fire dancers, and trailing behind everyone was a display of fire trucks, fire fighters and the novelty oversized fire safety koala...



What WERE the organisers thinking? ...what kind of mixed messages are we sending the kiddies out there in Murgonland!? Heee!



"Now, don't play with fire kids! Unless it's big. And spinning. And you're wearing bright coloured outfits and acting like clowns."



ubblol



mmm! Thank you for finding a copy of the article! Thank you thank you! smile We should run into you at World Vegan Day I hope, see you then? biggrin
