"Hi" Just thought I would start the newsletter early
so to remember what I have done. Not a great lot for the first part of the month. Had Amanda
down to see us, and as it was her Birthday we took her to the Top Pub for tea, very enjoyable,
it was great to see her again.

This weekend, Chris and I are going down to Steve and Sharon's Wedding, I know Bob and
Amanda, Geoff and Pam, Terri and Brian, Di, and many more will be there, I don't know if Luke
will be as he is doing exams to do with his work. So I will continue on after the wedding.......

Well the Wedding was beautiful, everything went along fine even the weather. Samantha and the 2
other Bridesmaids looked lovely and of course the groom was beaming, so now Mr and Mrs S.
Cass are enjoying a honeymoon in Fiji. Good Luck for their Future together. Tami played
Amazing Grace on her Saxophone, though I didn't hear it I I Believe it was beautiful. Well Dears
that is all for this God Bless You All Love MUM xxooxx
The Kappillan's Ass
The Kappillan entered his donkey in a race and it won., The Kappillan was so pleased with the donkey that
he entered it in the race again, and it won again
The local paper read : KAPPILLAN'S ASS OUT FRONT
The bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered the kapillan not to enter the donkey in
another race
The next day the local paper headline read: BISHOP[ SCRATCHES KAPPILLAN'S ASS
This was too much for the Bishop, so he ordered the Kapillan to get rid of the donkey. The kapillan decided
to give it to the Nun in a nearby convent
The local paper, hearing of the news, posted the following headline the next day:
The Bishop fainted
He informed the Nun that she would have to get rid of the donkey, so she sold it to a farmer for $10
The next day the paper read:
This was too much for the bishop, so her ordered the nun to buy back the donkey and lead it to the plains
where it could run wild
The next day the headline read:
The bishop was buried the next day
The moral of the story is... being concerned about public opinion can bring you much grief and misery...
even shorten your life

Stop worrying about everyone else's ass and you'll be a lot happier and live longer.
Have a nice day

Thought I would drop you a note and let you know how we are faring. Arrived in Cairo after a
very long and tiring trip from Australia, then was thrown into the chaos of Cairo! It is probably
the dirtiest, busiest and noisiest city we have ever been in - really didn’t like it much but that's
where you go to visit the pyramids, which were very special and impressive - even went into the
heart of the 2nd biggest pyramid (hot, narrow and no headroom at all, had to crouch most of the
way. We are now in Luxor which is much more pleasant, we will visit the Valley of the Kings and
the temple of Queen Hapshetsut tomorrow, before hopping on our cruise ship for a 3 day trip down
the Nile to Aswan. Having a good time with some low lights but plenty of highs Cheers for now.


Well. Hi again. Just to follow up on a few things from the last newsletter. Firstly Kym went in and
had her Gall bladder out, everything went fine, they managed to remove it via keyhole surgery and
she ended up having 14 stones there, so it was a good thing to have it out. Apart from feeling like
she had done 1000 sit ups in one sitting, after a couple of days she began to feel a lot better and
was even able to have a little dance at Dan and Nadine's Engagement Party. She is now back to
Gym feeling and looking a lot better. Kym, Alistair and Mia are heading off to Perth today (12th
November) to visit Alistair's grandmother for her birthday, so that will be a mini holiday for them.

Dan and Nadine's Engagement Party was a great night, thank you to all who were able to come,
hope you had a good time. They received many lovely gifts, which were much appreciated and
will go into their new home when they get one, hopefully next year. It was nice to have a chat and
a dance with those friends who I had not seen for a while, and I did love the chocolate fountain a
nice touch for us chocoholics!!

Mum has been to see the surgeon and is booked in to go today (12th November) at1.30 to have the
follow up surgery on her forehead. We are hoping this will clear it away and no further surgery
will be required.

It was nice to see Terri for a visit and worked out well as she stayed overnight with Mum while I
went down to babysit Mia, so though I did not get a lot of time to chat with her, she had some
quality time with Mum.

As Mum has already said it was a lovely day at Steve and Sharon's wedding with lots of chat and
laughter, it really is great to get together and see everyone, and on such a happy occasion. I also
extend my best wishes to the happy couple. Apparently there are lots of photos on the web site for
anyone who wishes to have a look, so do visit. Geoff did download lots of photos to his computer,
but if there are any more out there and you want to post them on the site just notify Geoff (he
knows what to do better than me - which is not hard!!!!)

Hope everyone had the winner in the Melbourne Cup, Mum and I did not have a bet (surprise,
      Gossip 51                              14 November 2008                          Page 2 of 6
surprise!!) in fact I was over at my place potting some plants, I cleaned up ready to go home and
watch it with Mum and got in my car to hear them telling me who won!! This is the first time in
my life I have missed seeing the Cup and I felt rather empty. But I did see the replay and it was a
great race, so I hope you all had a good day, whatever you did and wherever you were.

Shocked my little car the other day by giving her a wash , but she is still together and has now had
a service so she is looking good, still have to vacuum her inside, but don't want to frighten her too

Been working extra at work as we have had some off on holidays (Lorraine) and others off sick, as
Mum has been pretty good (Touch wood) I took the opportunity to do the extra, it did help the pay

Also had a man come and give me a quote to mow and whipper snip the lawns at my house as I am
unable to do this at the moment, his quote was so good I gave him the job on the spot so my lawns
are looking really nice and I feel greatly relieved.

Next week 19th - 21st Mum and I are going to Melbourne to stay at the Regis Hotel in Exhibition
Street. We will be visiting the Aquarium and the Art Gallery while we are in there, so please, if
you want to call Mum for her Birthday, it will have to be via my mobile. We are looking very
much forward to this trip and will let you know how it goes in the next edition

Last but not least, Christmas is at Julie's at 125 Vary Street in Morwell on the 21st December. You
can arrive at any time mid morning, Julie has included a list of items if you wish to bring anything,
just give her a ring if you can to confirm if you will be there and what you will be bringing.
Looking very much forward to seeing all who can come.

So to everyone ( in case I do not see you ) HAVE A VERY SAFE AND HAPPY CHRISTMAS
AND NEW YEAR, and may the next year be so much better than this one LOVE YOU ALL

PS. Lorraine also wishes everyone a very Happy Christmas and Go the Magpies

Danny & Nadine

Well hello everyone and what an eventful journey it has been since the last edition. Work has
kicked up a notch even though it wasn’t possible, but there is always Sundays to work on isn’t
there!!! Other than the normal grind, Nadine and I have had the chance to have the odd day break
with a great time had at Steve and Sharon’s wedding, was great to see them so happy and also to
catch up with the likes of Amanda, Krystal, Bob and Geoff who we see too infrequently. Was also
great to catch up with everyone else as well!! Anyway the other day off!! we had was for our
engagement party. Once again a big thanks to everybody who helped out as we had a great night
and I hope everyone who made it did to. A big thanks to Nadine, who did most of the organising
with her folders and papers, now she can start on the real thing, saw her reading a wedding
magazine the other night!!!! All the photos of the night in musical DVD format will be sent to
Geoff in the next week so if it is possible for it to be put on the website I am sure Uncle Geoff will
do it. Thanks mate. Other than that everything is good in this Marsden house, we recovered after
the big night with a big bbq with immediate family and had a few more beers and opened all the
presents, thank you all for your lovely gifts, they were much appreciated and we hope you all had a
good night.

Also on Melbourne Cup day we celebrated with a bbq with friends and family, which is becoming
quite a tradition so keep that one aside for next year when we will surely be christening the new

house, which we haven’t bought yet with a monster day!! No winners were backed on my behalf
but that is not a change anyway.

So hope all are well and will speak to you all soon, Judd is fit and ready and Melbourne Victory are
winning, see ya round, Danny and Nadine.

Hi all,

Not much to say down here in Longwarry, except we have finally got the roof of our shed on
YIPPY. Now just for the sides and can’t wait for that now so then we can start cleaning out
Pakenham for Steven & Sharon.

      Gossip 51                           14 November 2008                          Page 4 of 6
Well Steven & Sharon’s wedding what can I say it was a beautiful day and Sharon looked
wonderful, I would like to say thanks to Steven for crying because this made me cry yeah thanks
mate. Anyway the day went off with a bang and you guys done a wonderful job organising your
day to perfection, and thankyou from us all.

On the 4th of November myself, Brock & Taylah took Steven & Sharon to the airport for their
honeymoon to Fiji we left at 8pm cause their flight was at 11.55pm but was then delayed till
1.55am, so me and the kids left at around 10.30pm as Tay had school the next day and Brock
couldn’t see any planes anyway as the airport has changed so much and there is no observation
points to see from, and yes I cried when I left them I’m such a sook.

Late in October Andy and myself travelled to Adelaide for the Gazzanats unfortunately we had to
change back to the 308 motor because the big block piece of crap had a crack in the head and is
now stuffed typical, so now the 308 is staying in the Torana until we now build the small block.
But after all that Andy came 3rd in the burnout competition which he was rapt about and Andy’s
mate Sam came 2nd, so Andy came away with some cash and a trophy well done Andy, this money
can now pay for his new wheels that he is getting made.

Tonight I will be travelling to the airport to pick the love birds up from their honeymoon, it has
gone so quick but I’m sure they both would have had a wonderful time.

Anyway that will be all from me as I said at the start not much to say here, hope to see some of you
at mum’s place for Xmas lunch though. Just so you know I don’t think we put down in the Xmas
lunch list, that we are having a cold meat and salad luncheon at Julie’s in December.

When four of Santa’s elves got sick and the trainee elves didn’t produce the toys as fast as the
regular elves, Santa was beginning to feel the pressure of being behind schedule.

Then Mrs. Claus told Santa that her mum was coming to visit. This stressed Santa even more.

When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were about to give birth and
two had jumped the fence and were out - heaven knows where. More stress.

Then when he began to load the sleigh, one of the boards cracked and the toy bag fell to the
ground and scattered the toys.

So, frustrated, Santa went into the house for a cup of apple cider and a shot of rum. When he went
to the cupboard, he discovered that the elves had hidden the liquor and there was nothing to
drink. In his frustration, he accidentally dropped the cider pot and it broke into hundreds of little
pieces all over the kitchen floor.

He went to get the broom and found that mice had eaten the straw end of the broom.

Just then the doorbell rang and an irritable Santa trudged to the door. He opened the door and
there was a little angel with a great big Christmas tree, The angel said, very cheerfully, “Merry
Christmas Santa, isn’t it a lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me to
stick it?”

And so began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas Tree.

Well at long last all the travel has been completed. Our trip to Townsville went off without a hitch.
Arrived on Saturday morning and had the get together on Saturday night at a local bowls club. Our
team gave Pamela’s uncle’s team a flogging winning 12-5 in our game. Fortunately for us we
didn’t have any bowlers but Charlie (Pamela’s uncle) played pennants. Just goes to prove you
don’t have to be the best player to win. We had a little problem getting back to our motel after the
do as there was a bomb scare in a pub just down the road from where we were staying. Fortunately
we were directed to go around Castle Hill and come in the back way – just took us a little longer is

Then two weeks later we were off to Melbourne for the “Wedding of the Year”. It was great to
catch up with everybody and I can honestly say I thought the night was great. It would have to rate
in the top three best weddings I had been to. The motel we stayed at in Mitcham was very good.
The room (whilst basic) was neat and clean and more importantly quiet. The only complaint I had
was with the breakfast on Monday morning. I ordered the “big breakfast” (which wasn’t very big).
This breakfast consisted of a hash brown, a couple of eggs on toast and two very small sausages
(you know the ones which are about an inch or two long). The eggs and hash brown were good but
the sausages were still raw. When I had finished the remainder of the meal I let the waiter know
that I was not impressed and showed him the raw sausages. I suggested the cook (he was definitely
no chef) take a couple of lessons on how to ensure the sausages are cooked. The waiter offered to
bring me another couple of sausages but I kindly refused – you never know what they would do
with them prior to sending them out – ala the hotel in Sydney and the ice cream and “Chocolate”
experience which had been in the news. Sunday and Monday we spent mostly at the shops before
flying back to Brisbane on Monday afternoon. Finally arrived home about 9pm on Monday and it
was very nice to get back home.

Tuesday morning I got up early and had a game of golf. It was nice to be able to walk around and
see all those people passing bye on their way to work – gee I almost felt guilty. Luckily I got over
it very quickly. The one thing I didn’t enjoy during my game were the bloody birds. I seemed to
get swooped on almost every hole. Playing solo does have some disadvantages, at least when there
are two of you, one can keep an eye on the birds whilst the other plays his shot. Anyway, that
about does it for now. Cheers to all and have a great Christmas.
