Just thought I’d add this pic — I did my 160-piece puzzle when I got home from the Gourmet Viking dinner. This puzzle was a still from an Australian TV appearance on Bandstand in 1976 and released by Reg Grundy as a puzzle only in Australia. So it’s very rare and one of my favourite items. Priceless to me — and it features their cat costumes, which the ladies often ripped off during Waterloo to reveal a mini-skirt version.
Yay! I’ve been an ABBA fan since 1975 (34 years!) and was contacted by the competition, the Daily Telegraph, to organise something for their Mamma Mia promotion. They also ran a full-page Mamma Mia photo too.
I couldn’t appear in the photo or article, but my friends are in it, and I was at the Gourmet Viking dinner. Later, we got 18 free tickets to Mamma Mia for our efforts (worth $100 each!). Which we greatly enjoyed.
One of the fans emailed: “We look so old in the pics.” Cause we are!
I have a pic of me there too, will dig it up.
