Wally’s wonderful croc star charisma
IT’S so cold, the ice works don’t!
It’s so cold, the geckos are staying behind your favourite painting.
It’s so cold, I had to chip the ice off Bing and bark for him!
Or as one bloke said to me early yesterday: “It’s so cold, he went to bed as a boy scout and woke up as a girl guide!” I didn’t understand it either.
Winter time in our glorious home in the sun and, yes, it’s been chilly, plenty of runny noses, and in my case SunWater is after me for a donation.
Dry, too. Fair dinkum, I think Wally the croc will be found in The Strand fountain having a drink, but then who knows where or who Wally is?
Maybe, just maybe, let’s find out where the Cairns tourism boss was when Wally was seen. Let’s go to his office; I reckon you’ll find a crocodile suit hanging up in the corner. Joking.
Speaking of Wally, Mrs Wally, and the now the Wallettes, with all my heart, I am truly sorry the Magnetic Island to Townsville swim is not on this year; this is one of our incredible signature events.
I’ve had the honour of welcoming the swimmers to Australia for many years and it’s a joy to see these athletes all ages, compete in this great event. And no, let’s not bring back the cages, let’s simply find Wally and his family a home, somewhere else.
The good news is Minister Miles is spending money on croc management. Like rock’n’roll star management, charge for appearances … well, Wally would make a fortune. There once was Wally the croc To see him to the beaches we’d flock.. No way said the Minister Then Wally looked sinister, Now the Minister’s in shock, in a wok for the croc. Not the perfect limerick, but it’s cold and there’s a doona alert current. If I can get that bloody dog of mine out of the bed that is, though he is a little hot water bottle.
To my mates in the big supermarkets, can we have more disabled shopping trolleys? There’s only one at Castletown, so hard to shop with Mum without one.
Simply, we have to go elsewhere, though BiLo have only one too, but it’s closer to the carpark. To be honest, I’d never thought about it, but it’s impossible to shop and push Mum without one. I’m happy to sponsor a few if need be. Some may think it’s trivial, but it means a lot to Mum’s independence, and I’ll do anything in the world to help her keep it.
V8s have gone, but not the events. Big free concert at Jezzine tonight and tomorrow night, and Tastes of the Burdekin on Saturday.
Happy Days to all! Ooroo
