Hope you're ok Cobrascorer

Heard on the ABC that there is a bushfire impacting Mena Park. Here's hoping you aren't affected .

We had to go to doctor in Ballarat to get results of a biopsy taken from a lump under my left arm last week. Squamous-cell carcinoma, so CT scan on Thursday, results of where the trouble is next Monday. We were well aware of the fire well to our north and thought it was okay to travel. It was. Cops and fire trucks had to be passed to get to and into our road. The fire apparently got to the north side of the main road at the end of our road. We were assured we were safe, "go home and make a cup of tea"!
Lots of fire trucks, water bombing helicopters and planes. Only one plane currently circulating the area, possibly looking for spot fires. Well burnt bits of material landed in our yard.

This fire was about 1.5km away at its closest, much closer than last January's Chepstowe fire.
So, we are okay - thank you for enquiring.

Injuries have taken their toll with Billy, he has found it very difficult to get to the level the past couple of years.
Will still be a good player in the CHFL.
