A blast from the past ...

I'm in the process of clearing out a whole heap of junk from the end room (aka the shit room). I found a box with "morgan's shit, not to go into storage" written on the top and in it was this.Now I can remember the photograph was for the local newspaper, and I know it was some publicity for the local Cancer Council (anti smoking, pro hat-in-the- sun, good messages both), but I'm buggered if I can remember what year - perhaps Spindle Shanks can help me out - hmmmmmmm .... ?
And hey kids, that kiss a non-smoker, taste the difference thing, it's still true!

Umm that would be the visor thingy (& that skinny kid with long hair, that would be my former self).

Aww, noice. What colour was said visor? I had a white one, used to wear it to kiddie tennis lessons. It kept falling over my eyes but I was too vain to take it off. After all, it matched my outfit.

Once, it fell & blocked my sight, I tripped on the court, fell headfirst on the net and bounced about 50 feet in the air.

What with not being able to breathe and all, I cast my vanity aside after that and never wore it again.

I always wanted a lime green one.

Colour,dunno, again perhaps Ms SS can help out with that one - possibly blue?

oh la dmm - vague and hazy memories being dragged kicking and screaming into the front half of my brain...i'm guessing we were of the 11-12 ilk but god only knows what colour your hat was. and who are the other kids? it was on the shores of lake burley griffin right? and did we also do running around that park near where the big shooty uppy fountain is? or was that another day??

11-12 sounds goodish - no idea who the other kids were - someones childers I guess. I suspect there was a great deal of running about, they always take shitloads of photos for any one given dodad.
I kept that tshirt for years - I think it ended it's life as a boat polishing rag!
