Words are but wind that do from men proceed;
None but Chamelions on bare Air can feed;
Great men large hopeful promises may utter;
But words did never Fish or Parsnips butter.
A day like no other ending with edition #146 of TFC.
It started with me opening my eyes in Hobart and feasting on the vista of the River Derwent, Mount Wellington and the city from the lounge of a friend’s place.
Then it was on the plane and back to Melbourne with my visiting brother in tow.
And while TFC was on the air and online, he was re-living one of the favourite films of his youth at the Astor, Lawrence of Arabia.
I was left to do the show which started with some archival naughtiness!
