Saturday 24th of September, 1966

On this day in 1966 St Kilda played in and won the AFL (then VFL) Grand Final, against Collingwood and Jimi Hendrix arrived in England from Greenwich Village, soon to become a star, The Rolling Stones played at the Leeds Odeon and the great lady herself, Janis Joplin was playing at the Avalon Ballroom in San Francisco. Oh and little ol' Shazza was born on this day, way back then. I am going to spend the day with my family watching the AFL Grand Final and sipping a glass or two of red, it would have been fantastic if my footy team were playing but that was not to be this year, there is always next year. As for today 'GO SWANS'

Happy Birthday Sharon!!! Have a great day, lots of Merlot and I hope your team wins next year!! I know your team is the Kangaroos, but who are they REALLY? What is their olden days name?? I am a football tragic in the proper sense of the word, tragically uninterested!!!
Love
