A great day.
I know. You've probably got the shirt, haven't you? "I support NZ and anyone else who beats Australia". (I have visited The Land of the Long White Cloud - my sister is a Kiwi.

Poor Australia - only second, with England Third.
Now that is something to cheer about =D> =D> =D>

I watched all that stuff at Saturday Morning Pictures (entrance a tanner, choc ice not included) around 1960, when it was only 10 years old (coincidently, so was I).
Lol, Bob I'm 44 years, 3 months, 1 week, and 5 days old. I just googled it. I needed to. :-" They were all re-runs of old cinema matinee shorts as you say. Watched on a 3 channel TV on a Saturday morning. I loved them. My Old Man told me about Johnny Weismuller and the olympic swimming legend that he was. It struck home when I was a kid because I probably thought he actually was Tarzan before that. I had a quick google.
He was born in 1904
He died as a legend in 1984.
Two years after ET was released.
A couple of years after I was still watching him be a bad ass Tarzan.
The only proper Tarzan.
My point was just the shocking rate of change.
If I showed my lad Laurel and Hardy, Buster Keaton, he'd raise a laugh possibly, Tarzan or the Rocket man he would think it was prehistoric. He has grown up watching Guardians of the Galaxy . It's worlds apart.
Anyway. No ones fault just the gears of time.
Back to the golf.
