what we might wish for – for australian consumption – for christmas – for the old boys


a little peace and quiet

an empty sky

a diary

two lanes from sydney to angourie

screw-down racks


a hat like bob cooper’s

front row at a severson movie

a nod from bob evans

ten boards on one car-roof

a weekend at the farm

a wollongong girl

front row at the patch on saturday afternoon

nobody out at wategos

nobody out at granite

a lismore girl

a chinese feed at bondi junction

playing for bondi united

empty north av in a nor’wester

billy thorpe at surf city –

getting past the bouncer at tabu in the cross

watching big men fight at the sheaf

watching farrelly

hating nat, watching nat, loving nat beat the yanks

owning byron

broken head watermelons

watching peterson

dole-bludging with integrity

fighting Q’landers

loving Q’landers

sleeping in the crescent shed

nobody out at tea tree

bingo at brunswick

the goldie beer gardens

12 hours to the tweed

currumbin .. 6′ … sweeping to the beach

ten to a van at conjola

watching a yank roll a tight number

eight in a circle and ten joints on the circuit

watching weather report at the hordern pav

walking up bondi road

drinking at the astra

fighting at the coogee bay

playing street rugby

sniffing hashish

    Pete, what about: the Marlin on a Saturday night after a day at Green Island; Paddo “fair go” at the Clovelly cabaret, egging Aaron, escaping from Aub Laidlaw in the Ben Buckler flats, and for the faint hearted Joyce and Adele at Mackenzies Point..

    • and boards flying off the roof on the harbour bridge, pinching occy straps, dinner at ryan’s cafe in byron, surfing kirra, tomato fights coming back from the ‘gong
