Sorry about the angle of this photo and the flash, but I had to take it myself (while tidying out my wardrobe). I just had to show you this T-Shirt, which I bought at the opening of the Convict Trail at Campbell Town in February 2004. The Convict trail is a trail of bricks all along the main road of Campbell Town (a town in the northern midlands of Tasmania) with the names and details of hundreds of convicts who were sent to Van Dieman's Land (Tasmania) engraved on the convict-made bricks set into the pavement.
My dear cousin and Uncle came from Queensland and we went to the opening of the Trail. Our Great Grandfather (or Great, Great - my Mum was born in 1915) was a convict and came to Tasmania in 1849 on a convict ship from Ireland (Dublin).
I was caught up in the moment and bought a T-shirt stating that I am a descendant of a convict. My dear cousin (a pretty, petite, size 10 "girl", a couple of years older than me) bought one too. She was able to buy a small. Much to my sadness, I had to admit to her that I needed to buy a larger one. The medium was still too tight and I needed to buy a large. (I know that the day was about more than the size of my T-shirt, but it really upset me). I just found it in my wardrobe and it could now be a dress! Well, almost! It is huge! I want to turn back the clock and be able to buy a small! I was SO jealous at the time. I like her very much, but I was upset that I was the same height and so much larger. NOT ANY MORE!!!!! YAY!!!!!
