Hi Dawnmist and Lotus1,

I live in the south east as well, Warneet which is quite close to Frankston.

How do you feel about trying to arrange getting together?

Cheers,
Jo

I'd be quite happy to. I'm in Doveton (near Dandenong), so Frankston area is only about a 15-20 minute drive away. I do work during the week though - normally 4 days a week, but it's a bit disrupted at the moment due to physio/hydrotherapy and various specialist appointments. Fridays would be my best day to aim for a meet-up. :)

Hi Dawnmist & Bigleyj

Bigleyj, I'll be in Melbourne March 1st to 8th 2017. 

I'm getting excited re seeing you both.
If it means 2 separate days to see you both I'll fit in.
One day with the 3 of us would be nice though.  See how things go.
We sjoggies must stick together lol

You'll need to tell me where to meet nearer the time as I don't know Melbourne at all.

Yes, hello Aussie Mum.  It would be nice to meet you also.  Doesn't seem a goer though :(

I see I'm the 'oldie' at 58 yrs so please take care of me on our visit ha ha

Take care everyone.....

Hi Lotus1

Frankston is just a 20 minute drive for me 😀

Just remind me a week or two before and we will make arrangements.

Sitting in Dr waiting room at moment...sinus infection.

I'm sorry about the delay in reply Bigleyj, I must have missed the forum notification.

Friday 9th in the afternoon would be good for me too. Any preferences for where you'd want to meet up? I have a hydrotherapy appointment from 9:30-10:30 in the morning at Karingal (though it's likely to run late, so call it an 11am end), but I'm happy to drive to wherever after that to meet up.

Cheers,
Janeene.

. So fun to watch you plan a get together on a continent so far from the USA. Let us know when you get together, what the weather is like and describe your meal. It is very interesting to see how things are around the world. Irish
