Hello again;
Urgent re-call; Last evening I handed out some fake news! Queensland's favourite beer XXXX, was flowing again, but not down Queenslander's throats! Down the drain!
Apparently the two main breweries had become overstocked due to the lockdown and the locals discovered beer has a use-by date, something they hadn't known before because it never hung around that long! grin
I'm still compiling "jokes" as requested by our local Council's "social inclusion" officer. I assume she'll act as moderator!
We had a thread here on GN recently, " Care to share a bit of humour", intended to counter act the gloom engendered by Corvid19, but it ended abruptly after 5 weeks. sad
I'll forward a few to her on the basis they are gentle GN jokes and therefore unlikely to shock her readership! In fact I'm damn sure they won't!
On the other hand GreatNan's jokes would be something else, but slowly does it! grin
Our coldest night for ages coming up tonight, but no fear of the water pipes freezing! Shades of English winters and frozen car radiators! sad
Our "lads" are voting to maintain "working at home" forever, or at least until retirement, particularly when Video is not switched on, meaning nobody needs know how scruffy they look! shock
It's nearly Friday and the Doona beckons!
Good Health wine wine wine
(Megs have a third one on me! wink)

What a shame. All that beer! There would have been many volunteers to dispose of it had they known it had an end date.

Anyway too late now so have a Good Evening

Bet there would have been community minded volunteers to help absorb the beer lake. I remember the beer in Victoria - VB- known as 'vile brew'!
We only have alcohol at weekends. There's a Tanqueray and tonic with my name on it for tomorrow night!

Oh no, thank good ess SIL drinks Great Northern.

The usual quip if anyone in the north drinks a VB is 'You a Mexican?' from South of the border, down Mexico way.
