i know some pretty infamous WA-ites. i'd prefer to not name them, though, because being associated with them - to me - is no different than anyone else i deal with so i don't want to make it sound like a good, or bad, thing.
Any old boxing fans here?
George Barnes and Tommy Burns.
My wife and I were often privileged to listen to their stories of their careers in Australia and overseas.
I was also able to talk Tommy Burns into letting me read his hand-written autobiography before it was published...( I was sworn to secrecy. ) Still don't know if it ever hit the bookstore shelves....
Great fighters...lovely blokes.
We lived in the house that Naomi Watts lived in as a teenager, according to our neighbour from that house.
My friend went to visit a friend in the US about 25 or so years ago when she was about 19. She was invited with the family she was staying with to lunch at "some place on a lake" and had no idea who the couple were whose house she was visiting. She had to ask who "Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash" were .
