Oi! Oi! Oi! I haven't seen

Oi! Oi! Oi!

I haven't seen Australia since I became a Shellback in the Navy back in 1992. (OMG, come to think of it, that's just shy of 20 years ago, now.) I quite miss it down there, actually. I loved the visit -- only spent a week there. Not nearly enough time to see and do what I wanted to. Would have liked to have stayed. Definitely want to go back...really I do.

Welcome to MWK!

Welcome.
If you ever find you have tied yourself up in knots, be sure that there is always a helping hand to get you sorted...yes... pretty heavy on the innuendoes... but you will find the guys enjoy word play....besides being a great resource, they are a lot of fun.
I'm actually a Ballarat Boy but after living in Melbourne a while I decided to start working abroad... so now in Turkey... but an aussie thru' 'n thru'
