All good fun

Your Heart of the Na­tion photo (May 19-20) brought back so many mem­o­ries. I used to at­tend the Air­lie Beach Ho­tel reg­u­larly and can re­mem­ber those hor­rid yel­low/mus­tard tiles in the main bar. I also re­call, as the photo shows, that there was a fash­ion tran­si­tion go­ing on from “stub­bies” to “scoops”. We had so much fun there – whilst ev­ery­one played up, there was a bit of de­cency I value a man who chops fire­wood, mows the lawn and ties down a trailer load with­out fear of chip­ping his nail pol­ish. We need to ap­pre­ci­ate our men, not con­fuse, cri­tique and con­demn them. Geral­dine Burston Glen­gowrie, SA A pity ex-cub Phillip Adams couldn’t re­call the Wolf Cub pack’s re­sponse to Akela’s dyb, dyb, dyb, dyb. Long-time ex-scout Dick Smith would have known the pledge of We’ll dob, dob, dob, dob (do our best), and ob­served its mes­sage to the let­ter since.
