Goodies pool tournaments and the Melbourne Cup


The Thursday ladies 8-ball and Friday’s open 9-ball tournaments are going full bore, with new people contending each week. For the ladies, Risma from Goodies won for the fifth time, beating 3-time winner Mutya in the finals. In 9-ball, Frank won for the fifth time, as well, while I was knocked out in the first round. Here are some photos:

Did you know that Australia has its version of the Kentucky Derby? It’s called the Emirates Melbourne Cup and was held last week. We have a special champagne brunch, with the race telecast live on the Goodies TVs. The affair is highlighted by Best Costume and Best Hat contests. Seems the ladies like to dress up with their best attire for the day.

Lifetime journalist, author, magazine editor and publisher, now semi-retired and traveling the world. My plan, after living in Costa Rica for 14 months, was to visit a new country in southern Europe every three months to experience the culture and the challenge of adapting to a new environment, while on a fixed income. That plan was sidetracked when I was offered a job in Indonesia, providing an opportunity to explore Asia. Indonesia lasted for a 4 wonderful years but I have now moved on to Hua Hin, Thailand.
