  1. What is Celibacy? Celibacy can be a choice in life, Or a condition imposed by circumstances. While attending a Marriage Weekend, my wife and I, listened to the instructor declare, 'It is essential that husbands and wives know the things that are important to each other.." He then addressed the men, 'Can you name and describe your wife's favourite flower?' I leaned over, touched my wife's hand gently, and whispered, 'Self-raising, isn't it?' And thus began my life of celibacy..........
  2. Unintended messages
  3. If you get pvc tubes, a little piece of soft foam rubber fitted snugly into the screw top will save the end eyelet(s) from getting damaged if the tube is upturned.
  4. 4" pvc pipe, I have 3. They are sealed at one end and screw top at t'other, all 6'6'' long. get them from plumbers.
  5. Have to say that I am saddened by the stupid new licences you blokes have to buy in order to pursue your hobby. I hope a fair portion of those monies are reinvested in re stocking the various streams, rivers and enclosed waters. We, in Queensland, only need a stocked water impoundment permit (S.I.P.) costing $50 a year or and their wives and $36 for pensioners to fish any of 63 dams throughout the State. 25% of that goes to re stocking the impoundment that we, the fishos nominate. No licences to fish any rivers, or coastline; no silly rod licences either.
  6. The Australian dunny.
  7. We have 5 shops and every one has at least 7 people buying gear. Covid is a word only in Mackay and north Queensland.. Must admit, it has affected trade from NSW and Victoria during holiday seasons due to the Qld government closing the borders
  8. Ho hum, here, in central coastal Qld, it’s 30 c, that is 86 F to you, Phone.
  9. Hopefully having good treatment.
  10. Lambert Centre Of Australia in the Northern Territory is the furthest from any sea, not Windorah, which is in Queensland, a distance of just over 800 km, so there! Opal country near Windorah... Anyway, I was in a hole digging garnets near Alice Springs.
  11. Women’s tights were good while sea fishing in Australian tropical waters . They were good protection against box and irukanji jellyfish when hauling bait nets in a metre of water.
  12. Winter in The Whitsundays.
  13. Live in a warm climate, then there is no need for all that clobber
