Well, what a week it’s been. We had a great time last weekend with our friends on the south coast, we enjoyed a Circus on a Stage with Annabelle and Jessie, the Moreton Pinkney Big Breakfast ensured that I would not go hungry and, undoubtedly most importantly, the UK electorate finally turfed out the Tories after fourteen years of wanton destruction, from Brexit to the NHS to education to foul-smelling, shit-infused rivers and beaches to the highest level of taxation in seventy years and the poorest level of public services I’ve ever seen. You could not make up just how bad they were. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

I was dining in our Georgia town, when a tourist stopped by my table. “Excuse me,” he said. “My wife loves your sandals. Did you buy them somewhere locally?”

”Yes, just down the street,” I said.

An Australian tour guide was showing a group of American tourists the Top End. On their way to Kakadu he was describing the abilities of the Australian Aborigine to track man or beast over land, through the air or beneath the sea. The Americans were incredulous.

Then later in the day, the tour rounded a bend on the highway and discovered, lying in the middle of the road, an Aborigine. He had one ear pressed to the white line whilst his left leg was held high in the air. The tour stopped and the guide and the tourists gathered around the prostrate Aborigine.

“Jacky,” said the tour guide, “what are you tracking and what are you listening for?”

The aborigine replied, “Down the road about 25 miles is a 1971 Valiant Ute. It’s red. The left front tire is bald. The front end is out of whack and it has dents in every panel. There are 9 fellas in the back, all drinking warm beer. There are 3 kangaroos on the roof rack and 6 dogs on the front seat.”

The American tourists moved forward, astounded by this precise and detailed knowledge.

“Wow, man! How do you know all that?” asked one American.

The Aborigine replied, “I fell out of the thing about half an hour ago.”

A woman is in her ninth month of pregnancy and feeling very uncomfortable. On top of everything, her pleas for sympathy seemed to go unnoticed by her husband.

One day she told him, “I hope in your next life you get to be pregnant!”
