    It's done....so happy with it. Lots of hard work but now on the shelves. Well, at the historical society at least ;)

    Coercion!
    Well, not quite that dramatic. We happened to walk into the local historical society at the time they were talking about putting it together........and all but a few walked away and left it to others. At this time in my life it was a good distraction. So I guess about 3 of us did most of the research and collected stories and memories.
    Saturday we are having a function and launch with a re-enactment of the local bank robbery from 1893 with bush rangers and a stage coach....I feel like a big kid really. :D

    Congratulations Sue, what a worthwhile achievement. Have huge fun at the re-enactment and remember that with regards to the bank, only blow the **** doors off. ;)

    Unfortunately the bank is now a private home and belongs to my hairdresser. :) So not too sure she would like to have her front door blown off. :eek:
