Hi All,
Sorry people for taking your time. John Gamblin has put a message on B-A that compliments me on something (though I am one L Philip). I guess that is nice but the truth is I have absolutely no idea what John is referring to in most of the message below, nor why he mentions me at this time in regard to "all that data", (could it be the book "Birds of Canberra Gardens" that he bought from me last year?) nor the meaning of his subject line "R.L. Mate and Bats". Maybe someone else knows what he means. At least he is complimentary of the B-A chat line in his message, I understood that bit.

Bless you both to Michael Norris and Phillip A.
I checked ALL that data (geeeez he's thorough is that
Veerman fellow) and I still can not find anything that
relates to this weird head colouring? of what has been
quickly named "Gloria" by that fast spinner in S.A.

Tisk Tisk Tisk :-]

I intend to shoot it? :^D I am joking, capture it on
film I should say, or if the puta whiz of this list
would like to pop down here and give me a fast "Teach"
:-] on this USA webcam come mobile puta camera that
would be great! he could even have the bottle of
ancient USA borbon as payment due to the S.A. fast
spinner obviously not wanting it?

Mr. R.L.'s female companion was there this early am
but sadly only one little one? perhaps the others had
an oversleep eh.

I've scribbled down some notes and a rough sketch on
his companion but with it only being a week till my
love "Hilary of Washington" arriving and she's a very
clever bird artist, so I may wait for the better
then I to get here?

Many thanks to all for this help.

Bad Humour:

I had a suggestion made to me last night at a meetimg?
and the idea got on to 3LO radio this am? perhaps we
should give thought to relocating the opening spot of
the first day of the duck shooting season, to the
Melbourne Botanical gardens? just give the shooters ID
cards for those bats. Gee, Michael 17,000 bats? nearly
as many as in India eh surely someone must know
there's a market for their droppings :-]


Ooroo all and again I bless you all and this brilliant
archive, for it is exactly that.

Hey Russell ain't I's good? not one word about bats in
nets eh :^D
