Celia's gone!

It was sad to say goodbye to Celia as we had had a lovely 10 days. Just catching up with her friends, Kate's birthday, Tony, games of scrabble, lunches, dinner and plans
We have decided to do a 12 day tour of the Kimberley area in July. From Broome going up the Gibb River Road, through El Questro Wilderness park to Kunnunurra. Then down to Bungle Bungles (unknown when I worked there. National Park declared in 1987) and on to Halls Creek where I worked 1970-1972 . We will not be in Halls Creek long but hope to have a comparative look around! the n on to Fitzroy Crossing and back to Broome.
I am doing the bookings and decision making and Celia will pay up!
On Friday, the last night, we went for some music at the Czech Club in North Melbourne.
Me, Celia, Sue and Julia.
We met first for dinner at Sosta and Italian restaurant in Errol street. Sue Morris, and Julia Roberts (no movie career) came as well, as Sue was taking back a coffee machine for Bernadette from Julia so she was delivering it!
On the lane next to the restaurant off Errol St.
I stopped to take a photo of this Mural and just as we moved off again the waiter came out with Celia's credit card!
My Sauce Good
I've seen a few shows at the Czech Club and this group were a one off show from Sydney called My Sauce Good (no idea why) but a review says  “As their name suggests, My Sauce Good cook up a tempting array of slow cooked soulful folk, Jazz and Swing from nostalgic bygone eras…. what better way to intrigue the mind and warm the cockles of your heart, mind and belly with a generous serving of My Sauce Good” 
Sue and Celia in the Club.
They were good, but we were all tired and the break went on a bit long so we went home early.
Celia and Sue left at 1000 next morning, after the usual angst of cramming stuff in suitcases, (no luggage limits for these girls in their Top class United FF program.) But they were off to bargain for an upgrade to 1st class. I don't know, they have comfy Business class lie down seats and now it's not good enough!! They have long forgotten about cattle class!!
