Community Spirit here in Brisbane

Today we went to help in the clean up of my mate Denis's devastated house in Yeronga, Boonah Gliding Club was well represented and others that I may have missed from yesterday.

The mud was thick like grey toothpaste, Inge and I spent the afternoon filling wheelbarrows and hosing and brushing out all the mud from Denis's back garden and garage

Its at hard times like these that you really see that the community pitches in and helps out the less fortunate, there were complete strangers helping out supplying assistance, food, drinks, etc.

Its going to be a tough time in the weeks and months ahead for many like Denis and yet he's still smiling and saying there are people worse off than him.
