  1. Damn! That menu's just TOO far away!! People look at me strangely when I tell them my favourite plane was a Fokker Friendship! I wonder why?!?!

  2. It's a bloody delish meal to be had at the Royal, too, Red!
    LOL @ Fokker Friendship.

  3. Thanks, Kerryn ! :)
    I'll shift myself and get over to read your blog soon :)

  4. Daddy-Long-Legs eat redbacks? I had no idea. Well, as long as they don't do it in my lounge room, I don't mind.
