I remember that morning Australia II won the Americas Cup as clearly as it was this morning too! Great memory of my own dad there too. Thanks.

I remember that morning too.

Okay name dropping time. My sister in law's (Chris' wife)brother, Ron Strykert was in that band. He is the one with the grey jacket in the beach scene, and later in the Vegemite sandwich scene in a stripey t shirt sitting down.
He came to my brother's wedding and was kind of stuck up. Impressed my then teenaged nieces though.
Great song.

Mal I remember that morning when we took the America's cup...I remember that old bum himself Bob Hawke saying that "any employer who sacked ??? anyone who didn't go into work today was a bum" unsure of exact words.

Foxymoron - wow we know someone who knows someone whi is ion the song. I am impressed.

How can there come a time when someone so integral to your life is still not there with you every breath and every thought? I don't think it's possible. I don't know this first hand and hope I don't have to find out anytime soon but I can certainly imagine it is true.

Was Hawkey still drinking then? He looked a bit tipsy and was wearing a horrible lairy jacket.
