Friday night was a miserable night.
Cold and drizzly.
Residents of Ararat - young and old, big and small, infirm and bursting with life, showed up to participate in the Relay for Life to raise funds for cancer research.
Seems every person you speak to has been touched by cancer.
Cancer sucks - taint no other word for it.
(V. and I have copped a few hidings from it in our lives).
The lone piper did a half lap in the rain - those mournful bagpipes calling up memories of those who lost their battle against the insidious beast.
I don't often swear but cancer deserves it!
Let's kick this fecker to the curb!
Donations gratefully accepted

Also the anniversary of the passing of both my grandmothers - 2000 and 2004.
Hey Nan, hey Grandma - do you get the internet there?
