The last Saturday in September marks the culmination of another season of that AFL football thingy/game. As the birthplace of modern AFL, Melbourne tends to verge on hysteria with the anticipation on someone winning. Our good neighbour Sir Geyer suggested we banned together and throw a garden party in the Castle grounds for all of our likeminded friends who frankly couldn't give a toss about the game, but needed a fun way to spend their Grand Final afternoon. It kind of morphed into a fiesta of sorts.
With Sir Geyer's strong entertainment connections, we were lucky enough to secure a halftime performance by the legendary Tom Jones, right after his MCG appearance and Carly Simons was kind enough to perform as support.
With a few lovely German lads dropping in trying to make sense of the whole affair we managed to make a bonza shindig in the perfect weather.
Ready to roll.
Bubbles et Tom.
The German invasion. Don't mention the football.

The incredible Tom Jones.
The so vain Carly Simon.
Blondes having fun.
Someone mentioned that the Hawks won.
