 Gold Coast party house 1994, looking back as I often do, I can’t believe the fun we had at my beautiful Gold Coast home all through the 90s and beyond.

The fabulous photo shows two beautiful Argentinian girls and my late great friend AndreBuzek who lost his life in a Cuban car accident in the late 90s.

Suzie and Kandice are the two blondes but I can’t recall the name of the gorgeous Kiwi brunette.

 The lovely Kiwi and Suzie Q.

Mid 90s and the action never stopped.

This was just before I had my jetty built, which gave me another place to hold a party. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is my great friend Harley Bradstreet.

  Harley loved being the centre of attention at the Gold Coast party house.

What time can I start having fun?

  Yes I admit we were feeling no pain here.

Ray Brown was a rock and roll artist from the 60s, sadly he passed away in 2007 at the age of 51.

  I had a nice weekend in Sydney staying at Steve Carter’s (aka Hoggie) house in Cammeray.  

Naturally I took some company

Sonia was a meter maid on the Gold Coast, unfortunately after a few drinks she would lose the plot, so after 2 days I sent her back home.

Sonia certainly was not shy, crazy yes, but not shy.

Check out the old mobile phone, what a brick. ๐Ÿ™‚

Back at the Gold Coast party house and another crazy Sonia.

Gold Coast party house 1994

What is it with dark skin girls named Sonia, are they all crazy? ๐Ÿ™‚ I was having dinner at a restaurant in a Gold Coast apartment building, after a few drinks Sonya stripped down to her underwear, walked through the restaurant and dived in the pool. It certainly stopped traffic and caused a ripple of whispered conversation throughout the restaurant. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sometimes the crazy ones need to be restrained. ๐Ÿ™‚

Flying high fifty years old

She has that crazy look in her eye. ๐Ÿ™‚

The question must be asked “what time can I start having fun?”

Old friends

  Lisa from Melbourne and Dennis “the hyena” Freeman.  My thanks to John Sinclair for the perfect nickname.

 Helen Burke and Martin from Melbourne.

Gold Coast party house 1994

  Helen and I were an item way back in 1982, we had a lot of fun together. We caught up again in October 2014 at her winery in Dromana in Victoria.  

Flashback to 1982

Gold Coast party house 1994

Here we are in Hawaii in 1982 on the way home from America. Helen’s other boyfriend was a high roller from Melbourne, an Austrian called Willie. In the 2 months we were away we constantly played backgammon for money. When Helen lost she would settle the bet by paying for hotels and restaurants using Willie’s credit card.This was her revenge for Willie playing around with lots of other girls, I never found out what Willie’s revenge was. ๐Ÿ™‚

Meet my new girlfriend Carolyn

Gold Coast party house 1994

Towards the end of 1994 Carolyn Clarke and I started going out together. She was and still is a terrific girl, we had a lot of fun in the following 12 months.

  That’s tricky Vicky on the left and Amanda Hassel on the right. My caption for this shot has always been “guess which girl has a boyfriend”. ๐Ÿ™‚

Tony was the local weather man on channel 10, I remember an unkind viewer writing to the station and calling Tony a “prancing Pillock”, for those who are not sure what that means, check it out here. Tony was originally a Sydney disc jockey in the 60s, even after all these years he still has a great radio voice.

Great memories from the 90s.

 Thanks for visiting my 90s nostalgia kick at my Gold Coast party house.

  I finish the way I started with a stunning shot of this beautiful Argentinian Princess. Have a listen to my song that tells you how I felt in 1994, exactly how I feel today.

 

RIP Andre Buzek and Ray Brown.

That’s all folks
