  1. Top snap, right hand side.

    Bud Abbott and Lou Costello?

  2. Add the bloke in the next snap, with the spag bol spilt all over the front of his nice grey Tee shirt, and it would be The Three Stooges

  3. John Harms says

    Thanks Yvette for some terrific photos.

    And thanks to all those who came along to an Almanac GF in the finest tradition of the genre – especially the speakers.

    I’m just wondering how the footy gods responded to the first rendition of the Hawthorn club song?

  4. Matt Zurbo says

    Looking almost priestly John!

  5. Phanto – Rick was very sloppy with the spag bol.

    Nice snaps Yvette.

  6. Thanks boys. I think the photos captured the day well. Lots of Harmsy speaking, and guest getting a few words in here and there.


  7. As if i missed out on meeting my grandfather-in-law !!!!

  8. Just how many Collingwood players do you intend to marry Danni?

  9. Dennis Gedling says

    Great to meet you and others on Friday Yvette. Sorry about my Ross Lyon defending Dockers mate. It was like his trip to Melbourne for the Grand Final was a diplomatic tour to clear the man’s name with Saints fans….he had moderate success. Was great to talk to Danihers, Swans, Bulldogs, Lions (Fitzory and Brisbane sub genres) and other assorted tragics.

  10. As many as I can Phantom :D

  11. You’re a ‘card’, Danni. Don’t change.
