One of the best parts of growing older? You can flirt all you like since you've become harmless
Evening All. What a day! Christmas cancelled and now the Annual Sydney to Hobart yacht race cancelled. The SA Premier wasn’t having a bar of all those yachties arriving from Sydney as many of the crew members live and work in the Northern Beaches area, pop. 275,000. Alternative suggestions included letting the race go ahead, but make the boats do a U-turn in the River Derwent and go back! Can’t imagine crews being happy about that and what if a crew member takes sick and has to be off-loaded to hospital. putting every one in quarantine.!?
Now that Santa will be unemployed who’s going to explain to all the kiddies who still believe in Santa how he managed to put those presents under the tree?
NSW is now in the same situation as Melbourne not long ago; having recently opened up inter-State borders, all surrounding States are now saying “keep out!”
Not much notice is given either resulting in massive queues of travellers trying to get back home or whereever for Christmas. And not many discount air-fares. The price of progress!
BlueSapphire NT news is rarely headline stuff at this end of the country, unless it’s about a croc. eating someone. One word of warning; don’t say “Cheese” when trying to take a “selfie” with a croc, otherwise you’re likely to lose your camera!
Most attention is on shark attacks of which there have been a few fatals, particularly off the NSW Surfer’s and Gold Coasts.
I bet you’d like to be back in NT, or not!?
Jaxjacky A funny cartoon in a recent The Oldie mag. depicts a hopscotch “grid?” leading up to a cliff edge. (I think my sense of humour must have warped since joining GN!)
Definitely watch out for the rum, why not Baileys? their truffles were on TV and it was fascinating to see thousands of them coming down the production line.
No wonder all the staff look happy, although there are never any gaps where someone hasn’t been able to resist helping themselves. The scanning computer probably can pick that up and bring the line to a screaming halt.
Jane “Braw”! As in ”braw bricht moonlicht night, tonight!?”
Belated “Happy Birthday” (not Happy Holiday yet!) and I guess you’re keeping warm whilst stomping around to Nancy’s “these boots are made for walking”!
Seems like you might need snow shoes for your Christmas present.
We had the third and final episode of “Blood of the Clans” on TV this evening.
My word! Your ancestors were a blood thirsty lot. I lost track of the number of Clans, mostly Mac. or Mcs and I couldn’t help wondering what all those warriors did in their spare time when they weren’t charging around massacring all and sundry; .herding sheep, I suppose!
New Year’s Eve; that’s when you Scots come into your own Any signs of panic- buying of mistletoe or will self-distancing rules ban it’s use!? [tchshok]
Megs Hope you find your wines soon; shame to waste it. How does the Tier 4 affect you? Your weather does’nt look too brilliant! Worse if you have to queue outside in the cold and rain whilst waiting to be tested Can’t remember if you’ve said whether or not you’ve had your jab. If so, how did it go!?
We’ve now done 50days; let’s hope we don’t get any hiccups!.
