Man The Pumps!


Sandra, the village Hall's caretaker spied me down Byron Street and hurried over with her elderly Pug.
As my dogs surrounded him for multiple botty sniffs she gave me one of those I'm glad to have bumped into you moments and asked if I would help her with her Christmas Fair which is booked on the 2nd of December .
Could I Marshall the troops and man the kitchen?
Of course I said I could, Sandra is such a sweetheart

Ps Nice to see the Aussie's jumping on the ever growing bandwagon

  1. I cannot imagine how I would have felt if the vote here was no. It was not. It was an awful process we have been through, but Australians came through at the end of the day.

    Time on your hands now you are retired John. Just waiting for the statement, how ever did I find time to go to work?

    1. Echoing Andrew. And also very busy in retirement.

  3. Rather than helping out in the kitchen, I think you should volunteer to be Santa's elf. You would look so cool in an elf costume.

    1. Green tights and pointy shoes with little bells on the ends. A leather jerkin and a flippy floppy elf hat. Pointy ears and rouged cheeks to complete the disguise.

  4. Do you envisage a time when you will say 'no' to any request (although I am sure there are some requests now that might draw such a response!)

  5. Now Australia needs to actually get the changes through parliament, which should be easy but I don't trust the pollies.
    I'm glad we are on the bandwagon, a society is only as good as the way it treats it's weakest and most marginalised.

  7. What if humans did botty sniffs. Sometimes I think about it on escalators.

  10. I would have thought those rights would have been a no-brainer for Australia. Glad they came through.

  11. Elves are in short supply. Keep it away from the mulled wine.

  12. Yay Australia! And you're the kind of volunteer who's worth his weight in gold -- one who can always be counted on.

  13. Echoing Y.P.'s comment above (though my initial assumption had been another one) are you going to have to use a pillow strapped to your front inside your red suit? - assuming, of course, that you'll need 'embellishment' in that department. (Ho ho ho!).

  14. I'm thrilled about the yes vote in Australia.
    Thanks for volunteering your time. It looks like a lot of fun.

  15. I'm sorry I can't help with the fair John, I'm at work. Otherwise I would

  16. A curmudgeonly Christmas: Prof as Santa, John [who is far too slim now to be Santa] as the Elf! Hahaha! or do I mean Hohohoho? You can get out of baking by sayng your kitchen is not quite finished yet, as indeed it might not be.

  17. Yes, we Aussies are just waiting for Parliament to do the right thing now. Of course,if those right wing dicks had just done that in the first place (because they are almost certainly going to give us same sex marriage), they'd have saved us many millions of dollars.

  18. Liking the results in Australia, and they had a good margin too. Hopefully parliament will listen.

  19. Hard to believe that I went to the first Marriage Equality rally in 2005, it's been a journey and being greedy I really wish the "yes" was up around the 80% mark.

  20. Man the pumps? I thought this was going to be about shoes!
