Possie 42 a chance for change
ALL I have to do is convince the other 41 to go on holidays for one weekend, and that would make me the most powerful person in Townsville. After seeing Mr Ed’s article and pics of the 50 most powerful, and I’m 42 ( my age of course) this is my chance to make a real difference! So, let’s get Clive P, Laurie L and the rest to a barbie in Brissy. I’ll have more power than Ergon, and let’s have a party . . . free water, connection fee will be $ 5, and that’s for the plastic bucket. Voting in the council will be easy, stand in front of the crowd at the basketball, and we’ll see who receives the loudest applause. We’ll plant trees for colour, and if they blow down in 100 years from now, we’ll plant more. Pooarama House will become a lookout, coffee shop, tennis court, opera house . . . ok, how about a cable car. I have to say I loved Panorama house over the years, but sadly it’s certainly had it now. Sadly, this will be for only one weekend, then the real powerful people return, and I’ll end up on the mulch pile. I’m not sure how the editor researched the top 50, and came up with the results, but I noticed his number on my Mum’s phone on the Friday afternoon before – 5419 times.
Cyclone whatsisname blew out the lights in the bay and now the ships could get lost, luckily so far none have been found in a swimming pool in Condon, but it is indeed a problem that must be addressed. Hang on, that’s the prob, they have no address, it must be undressed then. So with the state’s budget, I believe the answer to the channel markers will be the Port CEO Barry Holden sitting out there on a lilo with a hurricane lamp. G’day to the port workers on the reclaim at Ross River, the activity is amazing, if you strike oil or find Atlantis, let us know.
Last two home games of the basketball, and this is our turn, we deserve the championship. Great coach, great team and greater mascot, though he can be a worry. He growled at me to do the last two games, just for fun, so I will. He doesn’t ask, the Croc threatens, he’s eaten two tyres off my car, the next door neighbour’s dog is missing and there’s a terrible stain on my carpet so I’ll see you Saturday night. I wonder what he’s eaten that’s disagreed with him, have you seen the PM?
Psychic fest has been on at The Hotel Allen and I want to know, as there’s a TAB there, how many winners have been registered?
Arts awards tomorrow night at our Civic, always a fantastic night and I’ll see you beachcombing Saturday Morning along Rowes Bay, or after being Yasified – Blows Bay – but because I’m always there, perhaps Nose Bay – another great weekend in Paradise.
Happy Days ooroo
