Default Trip.

Have a good trip Ant, they'll be there when you get back. Don't worry, you might regret that offer, 'cause I'll hold you to it.
Have fun,
xina.

Hey,

Just came across this Youtube clip on Toot's Hozheimer.

It's great to see some of our countries history preserved like this.

After seeing that I pretty sure the Leyland Brothers meet up with her many years ago in one of there shows and I think that interveiw was done by one of the current affairs programs. Might have even been 60 minuets.

Thanks for the youtube link Scorcher.

Her daughter Donna Vawdrey wrote a book about her 'TOOTS Woman in a man's world'.

It's a great read, and what an incredible woman. I picked it up on the way back south at the Palmer River Roadhouse, and couldn't put it down. After seeing what she had to drive through just in the dry, she was certainly a strong woman. What a life the kids had too.
