A funny thing happened at work today… 2-Mar-2017 At 5:40:10 PM dmcg
I was talking to a visiting 80 year old Australian archaeologist Josephine Flood about helping her locate samples she had stored here at ANU. Originally from the UK it came up just casually in conversation that what brought her to Australia in the early 60’s in the first place was not archaeology….but climbing….what the?.. well knock me down with a feather….I immediately forced the conversation away from archaeology and off on this tangent to find out more…. and by the end was flabbergasted to find myself in conversation with the woman who had done, amongst many things.. the first female ascent of Cenotaph corner…

Scroll down to paragraph 28 about ¼ the way down, just after the blurb on Dot Butler (yes lots of other interesting reading here).

I can report that, although about to have her first knee reconstruction, Jo (as she calls herself) walks as if not needing one, is as fit as a fiddle and sharp as a tack.

I wish every work day was this inspiring..:)
