Dear Mike,

I hope you have a great time in observ­ing Anzac day and all that that entails.

It is a good thing that we have the Mon­day pub­lic hol­i­day in Perth. I sus­pect that many peo­ple may need the full two days to recover!

Well I couldn’t make to Kar­rakata so I decided stop at the Dawn Ser­vice at the Aus­tralian War Memo­r­ial in Can­berra. Even with the weather it was really great to see such a crowd. Of course the rain made for a quick exo­dus after the ser­vice. I’ve never seen such a wall of peo­ple in such a hurry to leave.

The great­est plea­sure for me is the fact that my nine year son insists on com­ing to the dawn ser­vice with me. It’s his sec­ond year of going to the dawn ser­vice. While he appre­ci­ates what the ser­vice is for I think the idea of a hot break­fast after the ser­vice also moti­vates him. :-)

My son is in Aus­tralia (first time as an adult) and I’m proud to say attended the dawn ser­vice at Kings Park!! He has been hear­ing sto­ries from his Grand­fa­ther (who served in New Guinea)!

I must say that this year’s ANZAC DAY would be in the top 2 of all time! The only sour note is that ANZAC House ripped us all off with over-​priced semi chilled beer in plas­tic cups! Mon­grel B@$$#=s.….……
