The Darlow Show & The Cat Show


I slept in this morning but kept one ear on the Olympics on the radio but the real action came later this afternoon when Australia won 2 gold and 1 silver medal in the rowing in the space of about half an hour.


I cruised a couple of garage sales and found a few more toy planes for my office but not much else. Steph and Noel were having one in preparation for their move to a big house overlooking the ocean on Geographe Bay Rd. I drove up to have a look at it and catch up with Noel who was busy painting before they move in. It was good to talk to him about a few things and to feel a sense of confirmation about the big decision I'm contemplating. No more to say yet but hopefully soon there will be.


I went to Woolworths to buy some food for the BBQ tonight, Scott and the band are coming round after church to watch the footy. They're big Cats fans like me.


There was an interesting "encounter" while I was going through the checkout. A little kid in a car out the front was blowing the car horn, long, repeated blasts which had lots of us shoppers looking and wondering what was going on, especially as it kept going despite the attempts of an older kid in the car to stop it. By the time I walked out the mother/driver had returned to the car. I was looking at her and the kids wondering where she had been and why it had been allowed to go on for so long. The mother must have felt some measure of disapproval from me because as she drove off she gave me the one fingered salute!


Church was great. Rod and Steve showed a short DVD about Christian Surfers, a ministry group they are both involved in. Then The Darlow Show started playing some songs and sharing some stories with the congregation. It was similar to the stuff they did at the school but more open in terms of their faith and motivation. The people were right into it; no surprise considering that they are brilliant musicians and that Scott is very engaging, very funny and had some really good and challenging things to say. They then moved beautifully into some great worship songs to finish the service. Mrs Holt Press and The Hair both loved it and I was really happy with the outcome as it had been my initiative to get them to the church and it had worked out extremely well. You can check them and their music out on their my space page, www.myspace.com/thedarlowshow is the link I think.


While the boys sold CDs, talked to people and packed up their gear I came home and stoked up the BBQ. All was going smoothly until the gas bottle ran out when the chicken was only half cooked so I had to do a quick run for another gas bottle before I could finish cooking dinner. Scott, Kalem and Lynden came round, along with Lynden's cousin Brett and his mate Tim so I was glad I'd bought plenty of food. Then it was down to the serious business of watching Geelong play Sydney at the Olympic Stadium. The Cats were good, especially in a couple of bursts where they twice kicked 6-7 goals in 13 minutes and went on to record a good 39 point win. 19 wins and 1 loss with two rounds to go. The season gets better and better.


Sport Boy was very excited to have them at our place for dinner and buzzed around the whole night, asking questions and being an excellent host, serving drinks and dessert. Scott is an occasional reader of Holt Press so he knew of Sport Boy and was keen to meet him too.
