Dear Dad,

Today we hit the streets again and visited the clocks at Flinders Street station, one of the old universal meeting points for all Melbournians.

Those elgin watches you all warned me about dared me to do something called a photo bomb... Couldn't see the harm in it so went ahead and did it.

I don't think anyone saw me...

I am very impressed that the station clock's hands have been set to 10:10 for the shot. (So maybe it's 13:50 but whatever - still impressed).

Dear Dad,

Yesterday was typical Melbourne drizzle so we didn't get out.

Today we stopped by the Manchester Unity Building. This building was built at the height of the great depression in the 1930s, it was built in record time and was the first building in Melbourne to have an escalator.

I heard those Elgins talking the other night, there up to something...



I somehow feel we are modelled in the same design.

Where is the around the world Hamilton, anyway? We didn't send it to Ash again, I hope.

The Hayden went AWOL with Ash over a year ago in the UK -- I think it was Roger who kindly replaced it with a nice Merritt. If Diveboy can get (the) Merritt to me in the next 10-14 days, "he" could make a grand entrance at the Detroit Auto Show. ;) (Though since it's in Australia now, perhaps there are a lot of other better sights for Merritt to see first! Plus, I am sure "he" likes summer with Diveboy much more than winter! :roll: )
