SLOW DOWN, BOY

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

An hon­orary Co­conut of ma­ture age — per­haps more cor­rectly, very ma­ture age — has a boy of 11. On a re­cent trip to Thai­land it turns out the young fel­low had his dad on ev­ery con­ceiv­able fun ride there is. First it was the jet ski — bump, bump, bump. Then it was the lit­tle mo­tor­bikes — bump, bump, crash. Next it was the Car­toon Net­work Ama­zone Water­park near Pat­taya. Two days later our old friend was bat­tling to stay upright be­cause of the back pain. Still, all good . . . Aus­tralian. She just can’t get the hang on Aussie speak, struth, hooroo, bot­tler, Buck­ley’s chance, cost big bick­ies, Fur­phy, or kan­ga­roo loose in the top pad­dock…. Well, she will catch on some time, or come a gutser!
