When I was very young my guardian Pauline Conolly took me to the Sydney Olympics. That’s me on the right in the green and gold. So much classier wearing the bloomin’ flag! 🤑
Since then I have had a go at many different sports. Mind you, I do face certain physical challenges. I find it helps if I start with a bit of yoga before breakfast.
Limbering up is a bit boring, and I can’t seem to raise my little legs the way the white lady can. 😨
Lovely lunch time…egg and lettuce sammy. Well an athlete must eat well.
Then it’s time for some gymnastic training.
My guardian has not been much of role mode, although she did try boogie boarding when she was younger. She claimed she hurt her shoulder like Greg Norman, and had to retire. Well, sorry but her husband Dr Bob told me that’s a lie. I found this photo in a box. Haha!
I enjoy most water sports. I’m a pretty good diver and swimmer…. once I find the courage to plunge in. Pauline’s only ‘memorable’ moment at her school swimming carnival was when she dropped a chocolate coated ice-cream in the pool. The sports mistress was very annoyed.
Golf? Yes, and my handicap is QUITE low. I play at Blackheath, and at Harleyford in England.
Pauline’s handicap was that she had no idea what she was doing. Once when we were up at Yamba she hit a kangaroo on the nose and it was only two metres away. Worse still, she has no knowledge of golfing protocol. When Dr Bob carefully marked his ball with a $2 coin before attempting a rare birdie, Pauline picked it up!! Oh my word….I thought my guardians were going to get divorced and that there would be a custody battle over me.
Dr Bob used to be a racing car driver in his spare time. Here he is at Brands Hatch in England.
I would like to do that too, but I don’t have a car just yet, only a very old bike. Hint hint.
I do tricks on it and ride down steep places in the garden. It can be hazardous though. 😨
I tried riding from the Blue Mountains to Sydney recently, but it started to rain. I had to come home when I got to the end of the drive.
