Or friend Colin has been excited for weeks studying the form and picking a winner. Once again, Diane and I had a quiet lunch for two on the balcony before the race.
For our overseas readers, here are some pics of the event, taken off the telly:
|Our Melbourne Cup Luncjh, cheers.....|
|Here we go.|
|A couple of Royals came out to watch the race.|
|There in the starting gates.|
|...and they're off.|
|A real shot of the field|
|Coming up to the first bend|
|the field approaches|
|The winner GREEN MOON passes the gate|
|The proud winner|
|The winner gives a TV interview.|
No doubt, we'll do it all again, this time next year.
