Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

Co­conut needed some new at­tire so he went to one of the men’s shops in town. In­no­cently stand­ing there, thumb­ing through the clothes racks, he sud­denly found him­self aware of a woman, ob­vi­ously a vis­i­tor to Port, who was quizzing the shop as­sis­tant about some help in find­ing some­thing for her hus­band. She wasn’t sure of his shirt size. She said, loudly, he’s about the same size as that man there – ie, Co­conut. Good old Co­conut gra­ciously al­lowed him­self to be used a model, as the woman held up the pro­posed gar­ment against his chest, with in­con­clu­sive re­sults. (It oc­curred to Co­conut his very or­di­nary physique might lead to a new ca­reer as a model in the out-of-shape-age­ing-BabyBoomer cat­e­gory. Should be heaps of de­mand for that). Any­way, next day Co­conut was in a dif­fer­ent store, still look­ing for new threads, when he be­came aware of a nice woman, ask­ing the shop as­sis­tant for help. She pointed at Co­conut and said her hus­band was about the same size, etc etc, as that man over there – ie, Co­conut! It was the same woman as the day be­fore! Good luck with the shop­ping, Vir­ginia from Syd­ney. High­way is slated for a new Cal­tex servo, with a Woolies mini mart and a fast food out­let. Nest is also the name of one of Hitler’s favourite houses, built in the moun­tains for him by the Nazi Party for his 50th birth­day.
