  1. Rod is my Cousin.
    My Grandfather is John Elliott (jack or skipper)
    My Grandmother Li.
    I was about 17, when I went to visit Uncle Stew and Auntie Flo.
    Uncle Stew is an oyster farmer πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹
    Auntie Flo had a paper shop.
    Rod is playing for Penrith
    My family drove from Gateshead NSW to Penrith.
    That was 1970/71 I think
    Rod played first grade.
    We watched the game. Not sure who you played thenπŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰
    Uncle Stew had a GMH BROUGHAM. White with a black vinyl roof.
    Very posh, back then.
    I remember a white motorcycle/scooter, that I took for a late night ride😊😊 A few times😊
    That was it. At my age. And wet behind the ears.
    My ARM CARREE, changed all that.
    At 19.
