Had to drive to Grafton on Monday to look at a car for my daughter. Took the road from Armidale up to Grafton and was a bit somber when I saw the extent of the damage however was amazed by natures ability to sort it itself out. While there is still a long way to go the amount of green that was/is visible already really made me smile. I have never been through this type of country after a fire before so was amazed how the trees are regenerating with sprouts(?) coming directly out of the trunks and not just regenerating from the branches.

Having trouble resizing pics but when I sort it out I will upload

It seems our posty might be playing silly buggers and ditching our mail,  after we got his arse kicked just before Christmas. Seems he cant tell one end of the alphabet from the other when it comes to street names for delivering mail .
Thinking he might need to get punted . Will start by sending some letters via priority / registered and normal to our selves all documented day / date and time posted , to see if any get through to us ..
Anyone else have similar troubles have other ideas ?
I just love dealing with Wankers that want to play games .

Public official ??  Ha ha.....a postie is an employee who drops a letter or two into a letterbox...or in the above case, can't even do that !!

Now, a politician is supposed to be a public official......and bribing is normal practise for them !!!  ;D ;D

There's always a way   ;D think outside the square. We had a garbo that repeatedly put our bin down in the driveway just where we couldn't see it till the last moment, came very close to a couple of rear enders. I lodged complaints to the council about it and the contractor boss always called and said they'd spoken to the driver but nothing changed untill the last time he called me.
This time I just told him if it happened again I would ring work cover and report his company for deliberately creating a dangerous situation.That driver was never seen again and the bin has never been put in the drive way again.

Edz, I hope you haven’t gone and done something stupid... seeing you are looking at websites for criminal lawyers.

Nah  just looking to see what penalties might be applied to things is all, deal with law affected stuff 5 days a week, not about to something silly ..
 Seems a few posties in OZ have been a bit silly and got caught out in recent times, when you Google it .
ANYWAY back to WHAT MADE YOU SMILE  stories .

I was lucky enough to be there last night and I was surprised at the maturity shown by him, mind you he had a pretty low bar to rise above.

The banter between him and the crowd, and his fellow players was very good, and entertaining, all without getting smart mouthed.

Daughter / partner and grandson just lobbed in with a present . A "  Mine Lab 66 Go find " . Another gadget .. ;D
 Seems I now can join the metal detecting brigade .. Probably not the flashest thing as detectors go, but appreciated none the less .
Hope it picks up gold .... Nuggets would be good but will settle for coins rings watches etc to keep me in  beer / play money .  ;D ;D
 have to wait now till days off for that though ..

Maybe they're suggesting that you could use it to hunt around the front yard & see if you could find a pile of untouched metal sitting out there somewhere ??? >:D ;D :-*
