I wonder what they did with the fridge?
The Aussies told me they were going to carry it (!!!) to staff housing, which is about 3/4 mile up the hill...mine you the Aussies were already into the beer at this time. They had no truck, and seemed undetered when I told them there was no elevator in the building, just three flights of stairs.
One of them asked if I thought it would survive if they launched the fridge off my balconey which is on the third floor. I replied to the negative.
The B-comb gondola more or less parallels the road to staff housing and while downloading the following day I expected to see my old fridge somewhere along the way...
Gotta love the Aussies, when one of them saw the food I was discarding he asked if he could have it....none of it had perished, I just had no desire to eat frozen eggrolls (left by a friend), too many bottles of (weak) "hot sauce" and *gasp* apple "wine"
: . I also threw in half a bottle of Yaegermeister (sp), some rum and some terrible grappa.
