Because we all know that Stitchy is immune from disqualification. And what Crusty said.

Hey Peter, just wanted to say that it's great that you're being good natured about any criticism you're getting. Despite the occasional bout of snarkiness, there's some good knowledge here as well as people who are very generous with their time and advice,

It was just too perfect. I couldn't resist. If it's any consolation, I imagined you standing, staring at your reflection, for a full hour just to qualify. Squinting ominously.

Thanks mate!! As they say Gerry you can't please all the people all the time. I learnt long ago that whilst it's nice to have people's approval the only approval you really need is your own. I'm not discouraged at all, I dress for me and learnt to do that long ago in Australia. You are setting yourself up for a bit of criticism. I appreciate any constructive criticism and laugh off the rest. I'm competitive too but can have a laugh at myself. It's kind of the Aussie way. We don't take ourselves too seriously.

Thanks for your kind words. Much appreciated.

Cheers,

Peter.

@Butler

Love those cuffs on your jacket, as far as I'm concerned, you've obliterated the field.
