Good morning Bendigo- 23.02.14

WHILE no doubt many were out having a good time last night, I was drinking wine on the couch with Roy and HG's Russian Revolution coverage of the Winter Olympics.

They may be greyer at the temples but the boys still have it.

Still laughing about the 'syncopated twizzles' and description of a Korean ice-skater's move as "the execution of Kim Jong Il's uncle." Ha ha! 

Well, that was my big Saturday night. How was yours?
