10 Years Ago....

Inspired by this bit of vanity floating around in blogland, I thought I'd share with you where I was 10 years ago. I was working and living at the Iron Duke Hotel, in Alexandria, Sydney. It was also where I met Big D, he owned the pub at the time and had just turned it into a live venue. We had bands on 5 nights a week and a bistro that operated through the day. I'll always remember the first time I met Big D, I was living with a girl who was the sister of one of his friends, she'd mentioned to me that her brother's friend had just bought the Iron Duke and was looking for staff. So I went in to see him, and from the moment I shook his hand, I knew I liked him. He gave me a job, and then 2 years later a wedding ring - how sweet!! Some of the bands playing the week this photo was taken: 78 Saab Scum of the Earth Skulker Jonestown So.... what were you doing 10 years ago?

I can't believe 78 Saab were around 10 years ago, where has the time gone. I worked at a TAFE College and we had them play there. I think they may have won the National Tertiary Band Comp

Hahaha I put on the 78 Saab band comp ! But I think it was maybe more than 10 years ago. (and I kinda knew Cass then kinda sorta)

And we LOVE the Iron Duke in this house!
