Among the wonderful treasures one finds when packing, there is often some disappointment when something is found broken or irretrievibly damaged. I came across this old VHS taping of Channel Ten's 'McMahon on Sunday' (a Brisbane-based information entertainment-come-variety half hour from the late 1980s), featuring an interview I did with Reporter Geoff Mullins about 'John Dixon's Air Hawk Magazine' back in the day. Seems ants had taken nest in my VHS Collection and have destroyed any permanent record of that event... It left me somewhat annoyed I hadn't taken the time out to have my VHS Collection transcribed to the more permanent DVD format. Don't tell Mrs Karmichael just yet, but I can't seem to find our Wedding VHS from... well, from many years ago now. I'm fearful it may have suffered the same fate as the poor old Air Hawk VHS story...!!
