Fair go mate! Don't chop her up! Not yet! We'll save her! Just push it in the bush till I get there.... the way septic tank politics are going, insted of another work visa, I'll apply as a refugee! .... line 1. I have a long term job waiting for me in the outback. (just don't tell the immigration officer it's a bloody tractor project eh?)
I... ummmm. Ok, I...was 'aquainted with' a classic ozzie farm girl for a few days... from out near Perth.... I dunno... when I met her, she had two black eyes.. bloodytruth eh.. wearing nice city clothes! high heels and cotton trench coat... styled about the time of Petula Clark... but this is when Boy George and Annie Lennox were the trend setters...AND! this drove me mad, kinda freaked me out...she never blinked...I never caught her blinking more than once or twice whole time we hung out- perhaps she didn't have 20-20 vision either?... just hanging around with me was proof of that eh? She said her dad had all JD's if I remember there's a fair dinkum reason to let the Sheila go walkabout???
Never actually saw a live strine snake, saw run over roos and koalas too- but some very alive huge science fiction sized spiders... and one of those lizards on the coin? Like gills of a fish? That was wild. Good thing I tripped over him in broad daylight...
Actually met a super x pom couple who owned a 'macadamia nut' plantation inland of briz, met them in the taxi to the airport- and they baby sat me in Singers as I was trying to locate my nutter cousin. They knew the travel ropes and didn't suffer from culture shock like I did!
My biggest gripe about down under was shorts. I hated wearing shorts since I was a baby. I had a pair of knee length 'burmuda shorts' I took with me. An old maori (probably was younger than me then, than I am now?)in my shop in NZ used to take the mikey out of me 'if that was my only pair of shorts, I'd rather wear a grass skirt!' or 'hey uncle sam! those long shorts or short longs?' I'd yell back 'pockets! I need pockets!' He had a fergie he could bearly fit on... his bum surrounded the seatpan- nearly to the fenders- a rather huge Maori chap... his father bought it new many years earlier... and his grandfather was one of the last cannibals... is there a link here???
So leave that tractor be, and save me a slab of human flesh for the barbie...
