Hello Sydney. I am writing this week’s column from Tamworth, the home of Australian country music. What am I doing here I hear you ask? Well, you know the old saying — what happens in Tamworth stays in Tamworth!
This is a very busy town and not only is it busy but everything is king-size. “Down boy … down boy… steady there!” And hung like a … I nearly forgot … what happens in Tamworth stays in Tamworth.
Talk about king-size — this weekend is going to be king-size. Look out your window around Surry Hillls and Darlinghurst and you will see the ugliest-looking faces smiling back at you. Yes, ugly is the only word to describe just one event that is happening this weekend.
I honestly think that election posters nailed to every second street post should be banned. After all, if we starting banging up ugly pictures all over the place, I am sure that they would be classified as vandalism or graffiti and would promptly be removed.
These pictures of scary people are not just making babies cry. I have even seen some grown men and women break down and cry. The residents of Elizabeth Bay have the right idea. As soon as they go up, the clever residents pull them right back down!
But seriously now, don’t forget to vote this weekend.
Who am I voting for? I don’t quite know if I can vote. It has just dawned on me that I too am a boat person! Well, really a ship person if the terminology is technically correct. Yes, arrived in Australia on a ship, so I am not quite sure where I stand.
If I had a crystal ball, I am sure I would know what to do. Hang on…..There is is a Crystal Ball happening this weekend. The furry men from Harbour City Bears are holding a birthday party this Saturday night.
So I vote that we all go buy a ticket, head out and celebrate this weekend with our furry cubs, pups, otters and mates.
This Saturday night, vote the Harbour City Bears number one with your dancing shoes!
