Commonwealth Games Baton

In advance of the Gold Coast Empire Commonwealth Games the baton is travelling through our municipal area tomorrow. It is then transported to the Bellarine Peninsula and Bone Doctor will run with the baton for a kilometre or so in the Borough of Queenscliffe. I expect she earned the privilege because of her high level of fitness and unpaid volunteer contributions to the community where she and Sister live. It would have been nice to see her run and cheer her on, but it is a working day for me tomorrow.

Oh my Queenie, your baton does look rather odd.

  1. She's looking very well isn't she, the deep shade of pink suits her, although it clashes a wee bit with her thingy 😀

  5. And now the PC brigade are at it again, suggesting that the volunteers at the Commonwealth Games don't use the greeting, "G'day!" when welcoming visitors!!!!!

    When will it stop???

    1. G'day Lee. I expect visitors will be delighted to be greeted with g'day, in fact disappointed if they are not. I am sure the volunteers will be able to judge who is appropriate to say g'day to and who should be greeted with good morning, and then just ignore that and say g'day.

    2. No....it's not "Good Morning" they been told to say, but some indigenous greeting that no one has ever heard of..."Jingeri!"

  6. Congratulations to Bone Doctor. Queen does look lovely in that shade of pink, or maybe it's fuschia, anyway, her "baton" looks like a giant hairclip.

    1. River, Queenie usually gets her outfits right, as long bright is acceptable. Paper clip or not, it the oddest baton I have ever seen.
