Sydney Smith arrived for the cricket tour of a life time, well for us Oz supporters it was. Now, now don’t spit the dummy. Just before Syd arrived in NSW I took a long walk off of a short scaffold. My collar bone detached itself and I was not a happy chappie. Instead of me running up to Sydney, Syd came down for an overnight stop. We did the normal reminiscing over a few beers, and we found with the march of time memories tend to blur. But we did have some good memories, helped by the amber fluid. The photo was taken when Syd was leaving for Sydney then the Old Dart.
