@  HasMan : (15 January 2020 - 10:30 PM) Hi guys, thanks for all the 'likes' lately. It is amazing how many more you get when you actually do some posting.
@  VIC-369 : (06 January 2020 - 09:37 PM) I'm back.  :hello:  Drove from Albury to home today in a strange mixture of thick smoke and rain.
@  Leigh90 : (05 January 2020 - 06:02 PM) Had a lengthy phone call from VIC-369 at around 6 pm today. He is somewhere around Holbrook and driving through thick smoke. They have quite a story to tell and are looking forward to getting back home.
@  VIC-369 : (03 January 2020 - 03:08 PM) Thanks for thinking of us everyone. We are safe in Canberra now with cousins. Lots to tell you about being moved out of Eden but I hate phone keyboard. More when I get home. :hello:
@  johnc : (03 January 2020 - 01:34 PM) I meant to add that for the info of non Melbourne based shedders, there is a strong smoke smell and some moderate haze here in my suburb today and we are a couple of hundred miles away from the nearest fire as far as I can tell.  Not good for my old and dodgy lungs but really doesn't matter compared to those poor buggers who are losing houses and even lives.
@  MattP : (03 January 2020 - 01:24 PM) Thanks Leigh and others for keeping in touch with Shedders and letting us know.
@  johnc : (03 January 2020 - 01:20 PM) Yes, thanks Leigh.  Rotten news about Wes who has not had it easy of latter times.  I just notice that DW is looking at the shed now, so perhaps we will get some news of him soon.
@  Matty_769 : (03 January 2020 - 12:52 PM) Thanks for keeping us informed Leigh :cheers:
@  Leigh90 : (03 January 2020 - 12:08 PM) Just phoned VIC-369 again, this time got through to his messagebank. Left a message, so no further news.
@  Leigh90 : (03 January 2020 - 11:40 AM) As for Wes and Julie, Big G phoned me yesterday and then phoned Wes who told Gary that his place of work (Repco) in Bateman's Bay had burned down and he had no work now.
@  Leigh90 : (03 January 2020 - 11:37 AM) Has been 18 hours since I SMS'd VIC and wife, but still no answer. He is probably more likely to get petrol than diesel so he is lucky his van is petrol powered. The diesel is being reserved for town and emergency generators and fire trucks.
@  Matty_769 : (03 January 2020 - 09:51 AM) We’d did make a plate post on a Facebook page today so i guess that’ll confirm he’s still alive.
@  johnc : (02 January 2020 - 10:42 PM) Thanks Leigh.  That shout was directed at you but I managed to keave off your name somehow !  DW must have been able to get fuel ok - that road to Canberra had some trees down according to this mornings TV but the authorities seemed confident of getting vehicles through. I had forgotten that Was and Julie had shifted around there (Batemans Bay ?)  I wish them well too.
@  Leigh90 : (02 January 2020 - 09:23 PM) Was in touch with VIC-369 this morning. He has to leave earlier than planned and also has to come home the long way via Canberra.  Has anyone hear from Wes Harris and Julie who live near Bateman's Bay?  Worrying.
@  Matty_769 : (02 January 2020 - 06:50 PM) He was here deleting stuff last night ....
@  johnc : (02 January 2020 - 06:37 PM) Sorry I pressed "enter" too soon.  My message is "keep safe"   Have you heard anything from D.W. I can't find the post he made about going to Eden (maybe tat's what he took down) I think he said he was going camping or maybe was already there.  Not a wise move but his and Faye's safety is now uppermost in my mind  Let's hope he is heeding warnings to Get Out Quick.  Getting supplies like fuel and food seem to be a big issue and road closures are awful,  Of course those worries may come your way too.  We are thinking of you.
@  johnc : (02 January 2020 - 06:28 PM) I hope you and yours are safe from the fires in Gippsland and the same goes for B67.  The reports today signal no real relief and further very bad situations on Saturday.
@  Matty_769 : (01 January 2020 - 10:38 PM) :wow: here I am talking to myself again because any time I respond to david ... like a child takes his bat and ball and runs away crying (deleting his comments) Christ ... grow up... if you cant handle discussion, or stand by your comments, maybe you shouldn't make them at all...   :ohwell:
@  Matty_769 : (01 January 2020 - 06:32 PM) Seems absurd to be holidaying in the middle of two huge deadly fires... authorities warned people not to visit.... a meeting was held in Eden yesterday to tell tourists to go home.

My heart goes out to those who have lost it all... and those who fight the fires... the good people of this country can not thank you enough. :sad:
@  pl8hntr : (01 January 2020 - 11:31 AM)       "HAPPY NEW YEAR"S"  Pete
@  Matty_769 : (25 December 2019 - 07:47 PM) Thanks Leo.... oh the memories of Christmas food comas .... oh how I miss them ..... :cheers:
@  HasMan : (25 December 2019 - 07:09 PM) Merry Christmas to all, or a happy festivus if you are pagan. Happy Bobunk if you are the follower of a certain 1990s sitcom. Just woken up from a food coma, and saw all of Mr 12's wonderful posts. Thank you Mr 12 for all of your contributions. Thanks to Matty and all the others for their hard work. I don't get much time to post, but I read almost every post that is put up.
@  VIC-369 : (25 December 2019 - 06:45 PM) npcc12 thanks for all your Christmas themed posts today.  You have excelled.  Wonderful stuff.  :santa:
@  Matty_769 : (25 December 2019 - 11:22 AM) Good on ya pete :cheers:
@  pl8hntr : (25 December 2019 - 10:11 AM)       Personally, I do not care who I offend.  I just want to wish all my friends on PLATESHED a wonderful and "Merry Christmas".  HO, HO, HO!   :santa: and a "Happy New Year".
