Thread Name: BS: Bad day in Dallas
Subject: RE: BS: Bad day in Dallas
First year at Teacher's training college, about to board a bus in Wairakei after spending a week with the science class studying the geothermal region and hydro-electric generation on the Waikato river. (Really exciting stuff!)
But it was actually 23rd November here in NZ because we're on the other side of the dateline and they didn't say he was dead at first. We heard that bit later, when the bus stopped for lunch.
Whenever I travel north and drive past Wairakei, I remember that morning.
