AN AM­A­TEUR’S PROGRESS

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

Co­conut is just back from Cairns Ama­teurs. An in­vi­ta­tion may have ac­ci­dently landed in Co­conut’s mail­box but he chose to take it on faith as an in­vi­ta­tion meant for his good self. He had never been be­fore so he was def­i­nitely an am­a­teur, he de­cided. So he went to the big do. It was quite daz­zling and be­wil­der­ing as he watched what the pro­fes­sion­als got up to, much of which may have been con­nected to strange bond­ing rit­u­als of the turf folk. An­way, Co­conut en­joyed lots of free stuff but met his match in the vodka tent, which led to his in­stal­la­tion in the emer­gency field tent, or “the tank” as he heard them say. Co­conut’s mem­ory is just start­ing to re­turn, although parts of his re­call may be lost for­ever, such as any­thing be­fore the turn of the cen­tury. What a shame as Co­conut’s best stuff is back then.
