MO'S LAST LONG LUNCH - SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE TODAY
The celebration of Alan (Mo) Morris’s amazing life is currently underway at the Sydney Opera House, Opera Theatre Northern Foyer. The Morris family have invited Mo’s many friends and colleagues to join them for this upbeat and informal event overlooking his beloved Harbour. The wake started at 11.30 this morning and last count there were over 550 attendees, with more coming by the hour.
2:30pm update... CB Blog talked to Ted Horton who was at the airport after attending the Mo wake. He said it was a wonderfully moving tribute, especially when Jo sang farewell to his old friend. Everyone who was anybody was there, he said,, from the past to the present day. The wake will continue until 4:30 when it will no doubt spill over into the pubs around the Rocks and Circular Quay.
Tucker - at Mo’s request - will be totally Aussie: party pies, mini-burgers, sausage rolls, lamingtons and stuff, with maybe noodles for vegetarians. And yes, Tooheys have generously made sure there’ll be ample amber liquid on tap.
