Happy Australia Day!

Postby Westi » Sat Jan 26, 2019 7:52 pm

In 1788 the British fleet arrived in Sydney Cove. They must have been freaked out with what they found & not just the natives but the critters too! Without further thought they decided to send the bad boys there as it was inhospitable & a great punishment for the naughty guys that stole a loaf of bread or got a bit tipsy or were too gobby! Big mistake - the bad boys empathised with the locals (well took advantage really), & the likes of me benefited as they stole a whole continent & made it theirs with their Larikan antics! Not without stupidity; Ned Kelly & Burke & Wills spring to mind, but let's face it Aussie knows it's heritage & will be celebrating it united with the UK in the future as well! Forget Brexit, Aussie grows bananas btw! :)

Not my best moment but all about heritage!

The danger when people start to believe their own publicity is that they often fall off their own ego.

At least travelling under the guise of the Pa Snip Enterprise gives me an excuse for appearing to be on another planet

: Not much difference between kissing St George's dragon and a kangaroo.
. After enough pints you probably can't tell the difference. Hope you had a good day.

Clog dancing OH? Twas a bit difficult with the ball & chain so improvised a bit! It's pretty much the same with Flip Flops (We call them Thongs - don't start now OH)! :) :) The ETOH input does improve the performance though, but it will never be the same without 4X! How dare Carlsberg buy it up & bury it - was obviously advertising envy! Just check UTube for some oldies but goodies from XXXX! x
