    Default Memories - for Lou

    These have been posted previously but I've scraped some together to remind Lou of her recent visit to Hamilton. These go with her blog on the blog page.

    Hamilton Lake





    Flaming Yahoo photos that I had a lot of my resized photos for the forum on has ceased to be and so I've had to resize the originals and attach them below.

    Some views from the bangers and mash house that you may not have seen if you were there in the dark.







    Another view and the site of the eating of said bangers and mash (unless of course they stuck you on the snooker table).

    Thanks MB .. tis just like being back there. Any chance of a photo of the kitchen sink? WG will know why I'm laughing!!

    Just think, this time last week I was just getting myself ready for my interview ...

    Will have to point Jon in this direction as my photos weren't terribly good .. I'm sure he'd love to see it all too.

    Surely they didn't ask you to wash up? They've got a dishwasher!

    Here's a few more 'countryside-outside Hamilton city' photos to show Jon how greeeeeen it normally is there (although I gather there's been a drought this year.

    And a few more of the banks of the Waikato river. When we were last there (March 2007) there were lots of draping plants with blue/purple flowers on dangling down. Looked very jungly. I'm just realising I didn't take that many photos of Hamilton. There's also one of the 'famous' car yard, your first port of call with WG, before it became Autoserve and they moved in and took over. I can't believe I didn't get a photo of it with the new signs up. It should become a shrine for MTNZ members when they first arrive in Hamilton.

    Nice one MB. Lucy is well known for her bad photo taking! It's good to see some nice shots.

    She insisted!!.... I believe Lou's words were to the effect of 'there's hot soapy water in the sink, so I'll just wash them'

    And where did you dig out that old photo of the yard before we Autoserved it?? Omg, I look about 2 feet tall and 4 feet wide

    Aaww c'mon Lou, I asked you not to mention that - I knew your endearing memory of your trip to Hamilton would end up being washing up in my kitchen sink

    Remember the giant sausages? I'm surprised you managed to eat the 12 that you did
