Greetings all .. Andrew from Australia here.
As reported by Paul I received the 18 pairs of craft scissors earlier in the week along with a piece of history in a small cut of the old rope which commenced the awareness/fundraiser.
To keep things moving on I have taken photos of the scissors and myself (don’t be scared now) holding the piece of old rope. Whilst I would have liked to get some local background in the picture ie Adelaide General Post Office or one of our local beaches, it is winter in Australia and it is dark by the time my wife and I are all home from work so I had to orchestrate the automatic timer on the camera set ontop of a Tuperware biscuit container (don’t know whether you have Tupperware but it is expensive storage containers and other kitchen type utensils but of good quality) to come up with the photo.
Perhaps down the track I can send in some photos of some local scenes which I was going to suggest may be interesting but you folk determine that.
Whilst I had no role in the conception of the idea “Money for Old Rope”, I would like to encourage others to take part or even tell other to “take a squiz (look) at the blog” to increase the awareness for Congenital Heart Disease (CHD).
Whilst Paul will probably not say anything, this trade cost Paul and I with postage for the airmail trade. Whilst minimal it still shows that Paul is committed to achieving the best possible result.
Paul will obviously have more to say about looking for the next trade but I would just like to say, cmon .. make me feel like the Sydney 2000 Olympics Official’s shirt worn by myself, such an athlete as you can see, is worth a trade to the next level.
