When I was very small I went to the Sydney Olympics and since then I have been a sportsman extraordinaire! Mind you, I do face certain physical ‘challenges’. I find it helps if I limber up with a bit of yoga before breakfast.
After that I eat my porridge and I go out into the garden for a bit of sun (vitamin D) , and I do some exercises. This part is a bit boring really. Let’s face it, I just haven’t got the legs for it.
My guardian Pauline Conolly 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.
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 is that she has no idea what she’s 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. 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.
