The mystery solved

For those of you who have been with bated breath a $2 coin in Canada is called a toonie.

What a day yesterday was. I preached and it was the most nervous i have been for a while. Thankfully the second service went better. Then the congregation had a 'potluck' lunch, what we call a shared lunch, including a Welcome Vicar cake (see photos). After lunch the annual Klages Memorial Shoe Toss was held. The aim of the game is to throw a horse shoe thing around a steel peg 40 feet (14m) away. I was paired up with the champ of the last two years and after 21/2 solid hours of competition we won. I also got an individual trophy for the first and last 'ringers' of the day (a ringer is when you get the shoe around the peg).

This is Katie tossing showing her style.

The champions Bill Kuhl and me.

Me and one of the locals posing with my cake.

Thank you for all your comments. I am refreshed every time i read my blog. I can hear your voices in your words.

God's blessings to you all

love, adrian

Thanks Steve,
With that Aussie touch is right. Some people here 'love' my accent. I tell them i have been working on it for 35 years. The other day when i went to town i asked to play cricket, but they have taken a break for the winter. They only have one aussie.

Blessings to you Elissa and the family. Send me some pickies.

Love Adrian
