She-elephant is pumping out a new verse every day.
Latest sequel. (and yes, pity our blue isn't around, I bet he would have had something to say about current affairs :lol: )

Old Blue Seeks Advice



Old Blue was getting worried, his supply of dunny books

Was shrinking in a most alarming way

He’d worked his way through Shakespeare – just the covers now were left

And Jane Austen was decreasing by the day.



The local lending library now had padlocks on the door.

And the bog roll situation wasn’t funny

There were rows of empty shelves in supermarkets everywhere -

No chance of soon replenishing his dunny.



The more he thought about all this this the more his worry grew

The poor bloke ended up in quite a state,

And since I wasn’t there just then to give him good advice,

He decided that he’d phone another mate.



This mate’s a bonza fellow – why, he’d give his life for you

But I wouldn’t put much credence in his views,

For although he’s always willing and he’ll do his best to help,

His paddock’s short a good few kangaroos.



He gave Old Blue’s dilemma some considerable thought

And called him back that very afternoon

“I’ve got the answer, mate,” He said “I’ve sussed the whole thing out.

I can’t believe I’ve solved it quite so soon”



Don’t bother stocking up with books – they won’t last anyway,

Already your supply’s begun to dwindle

Just hit the internet, old mate, and Google is your friend -

Find Amazon and buy yourself a Kindle.

Been an eventful year, hasn't it Jeff!
How is your Aussie side of the family now? Hope everything was okay & their home not affected by the fires.

Yes Sherri it's been all go since just before New Year when the fires got closer to Bega and Andrew was on call with the RFS at the Tarraganda Fire Shed. The family evacasted to Melbourne to stay with friends for a couple of weeks. Thankfully the major fire in their area was contained on the other side of Dr George Mountain, on the Mumbulla Moutain and the family were able to move back in. After all that the welcome rains came and things began to get back to normal, but now they are in lockdown with Corona, and just yesterday we had a message from Andrew to say that our second grandson Phoenix had broken his collar bone! Not sure quite how but another casualty to add to the list. D-i-L works at the Regional Hospital (midwife) so she is in the front line as well.
Lets hope and pray that it all ends without too many tears.

If it isn't one thing, it's another Jeff! Sorry to hear about your grandson. At least he won't be missing any school!
