June 28 playing catch up out of bounds with mud galore

1836 Snow fell in Sydney.
Just a trifle cool...
1845 A fire in Quebec destroyed the suburb of St John with 1,300 houses razed to the ground and, combined with the fire at St Roch, $8 million damages in total occurred barely 1 month apart. 
1918 Alexander Turnbull popped his clogs and left his extensive library to 'The King'.

I have the dreaded Man Flu *cough cough* but am still battling my sons footy gear.
He played 2 matches on Sunday; won 1, lost the other, and managed to bring home about 30 kilos of Ringwood mud engrained into his uniform.
Velvet soap and elbow grease work wonders!
