I have always known someday I would come across a body from Ballas but I had just assumed it would be back in the days when I was working behind bars (pubs not prisons!!). So one of my 'To-Do' things in 2008 will be to puzzle out who these people are and where they live. Not in any stalkerish kind of way b/c that would be creepy, rather in a placeing(sp?)kind of way. Essentially I am nosy and just want to know whereabouts in my town and was it close to where I grew up and do they shop were I used to and is Dennis Thingies the shoeshop still on the corner of Lydiard & Sturt Street? And what has become of my old primary school?
I don't often feel the lack of cultural reference, particularly as I have lived over here for more than 17 years but it is a nice thought to make some little links with back home. Especialy when the blogs have such lovely things on them.
