David & Pennie, Thanks for the wedding cake and the postcards.  The cake was beaut.  We played our basketball finals last Tuesday at Turner Oval, we won 16-15, but on the Friday we played Pymble (who were up here for the exchange visits) and beat them 19-0.  Andrew has a new job working for Mobil giving out free lollies, dog biscuits, maps, maps and oil.  Love Dood.

Dear Dave & Pennie,
 Thanks very much fo the thing on the Great Exhibition, very interesting s Dad won a prize there.  Mum has just found a recipe for Cumberland Rum Butter in an English Cook Book you gave her, Dave.  I posted a present for you but a little too late.  Love Dood.
