Oh. About 20 years before me then :)

None of those people were around by the time I got there.

Yeah, that was Richmond Girls knock shop, er, I mean School :)

The "School" I'm talking about was actually a convent I think, and it was on
top of the Church Street hill near St. Ignatius.

Seems like not much was different in your day to mine then :)

Have no fear. He probably doesn't have much interest in male incontenance
pads, slightly used exercise machines or rusted out FJ40 bodies.

I know a bloke like that, he's possibly worse. Aside from hanging onto
stuf he will never restore, in the past if he ever threw some car parts
out, for example he threw out a running 202 because he went to a v8 - he
took the head off and smashed the bores with a chisel. What a fucken

I've never done that. I've always rang around mates to see if they might
need it, and worse case scenario, I"d advertise it free to good home
type of thing.

I'm on Geelong freecycle. Got so much good stuff from it, and given
away heaps too! I've given away perfectly good lawn mowers, lounge
suites, beds, even a fridge and a washing machine once too!
I've gotten most of my home gym equipment from freecycle, and even a

No, I'm in Altona, which isn't far, but Werribee freecycle is the closest
one to me.
