My trifecta is in red. Might put a few $s each way on them too. The little Lady in Green and the Dog's in blue.

Big one only 5 or 6 hours away.

I've got the prawns cooling and the chickens roasting (I hope - a guest is bringing them). The little Lady is doing an awesome dessert and one guest is bringing the entrée.

Got 3ks of large tigers off the trawler. Amazing how fresh they are compared to "fresh' in store - and so much cheaper - about $15 per kilo less. Found some Kings amongst them. I hate the clean and peel but can't stand them not done. So much crap comes out. Yet you see people just eat them whole.
