|What's an Aussie gathering without a barbie?|
It's been really hot in Brisbane lately, and there were two fires on the news. There was a fire at a plastics factory in Carole Park, and a bushfire in Redbank Plains, not far from Craig's place. As the daylight left, you could see the flames over the fence.
As seen from the jersey above, Craig (and quite a few of the others tonight) was supporting the "Chooks". I was nominally going for Manly, just for the hell of it, but with the Broncos out of the top 8 I wasn't really fussed who won. (For those outside Australia, the Roosters won.) Even my beer was non-partisan (from South Australia).

After the game, Craig ran through some of the results of our footy tipping competition, and even had mini trophies for the people who had scored a perfect round. I was the first in the year, picking all eight winners of round 6.
|My trophy! This is going straight to the pool room...|
