Mum just told me that journalists from the Australian newspaper interviewed them today and walked around their property and took photos. She said they wouldn't let her put her lipstick on before they took her pic!
Not sure when it will be published - I'll add an update to this post when it appears - but this way we may all be able to see what is happening in Boomer Bay.
What a way to get in print...
Update: Mum and dad are quoted in today's Australian (9 Jan 2013), article on page 4, 'Bay will rise to be a boomer again', in the last column (five paras). No photo of them, so mum needn't have worried about the lippie. However, it was upsetting reading for me.
