Don Quixote, Sydney, 1974

The pic came from my Auntie Wendy, who has written on the back;
While his two sisters watch admiringly Chris, accompanied by his two faithful followers sets off to "Clean Up Australia" (Years later someone else will claim to have originated the idea).
Ms White Socks at left must be Sally, although it doesn't look like her. Wearing the very daring stripy number in the doorway is Jacki. In the Sancho Panza role behind me is our cousin Helen. I don't know who the happy guy she's strangling is.

I don't know if that is me... but I have no idea who it would be... Need Mum confirmation on whether I ever had a frock like that...

Hey! I'm checking on you to see if you are okay. I just heard about the earthquake. Hope all is well with you!

Also, how cool are you that you have an Auntie Wendy. :)

Sal - I think this is at Wendy and Colin's place - it could be a neighbour bu its the right age to be you. Hmm.

Wendy - we are SO far away from the quake its not funny. We are on that other island kind of near Australia. My 2nd favourite blogger Ally is right there though. Sounds like she is OK though - to quote her tweet, "Keep having to remind myself that it is a crisis, not a treat".

And yes, I have had Wendys in my life since birth!

Imagine how much confusion would have been avoided if everyone had thought of wearing clothing emblazoned with their names.

"And in the far left of the painting wearing the George the Third top is..."

I have taken care of business here with a clearly named singlet. Also my signature knock-knees which I was even able to deploy en-triked.

Chris, that kid on the trike is totally you - I'm astonished how little you've changed in the intermediate 35 years!!

Cheers,
Chonk.

Chonk - I know. I've been waiting so long for some kind of metamorphosis to occur but I think I am going to look like the gawky kids on the trike until I die.

Maybe if you were to stop riding a trike it would help develop your 'grown up' image
