Continuing cockups by my local Federal Govt Member

THE previous year to this, The Fed Govt office of Jill Hall MP produced a calendar. It wasn't until I informed them two months prior to the calendar becoming effective that staffers in her office had noticed this error. However, It was never corrected or requested to be withdrawn. I some times wonder how this may have adversely effected the lives of a few of her less informed constituents. Jill Hall's Week commenced on a Monday Not on Sunday.

Congratulations to Donald and Joan Metters.
According to the Jill Hall M P Govt Glossy Reports, Donald and Joan Metters were (***Married in 1949 and are celebrating their 50Th Wedding Anniversary and are pictured with Jill Hall at the ceremony. They are listed together with 19 other 50 anniversaries,) also there were 11 60Th wedding anniversaries plus three 65s, and one 70. Five 90 and five 100 birthdays.
*** note the cockup. It was their 60th Anniversary not 50th.

I sometimes wonder Who first suggested why some land marks of our lives appear to have more significance than other achievements within the longevity of marriage.
We have a fiftieth Wedding anniversary but not fiftyfith then a 60Th, 65Th and 70Th,.Ill be back on track at 60Th.

Have a wonderful week, don't forget to smile often.

Oh BTW Jill. Where is my photo taken with you on presentation to me of the Service to Australia Gong , about four years ago. Promises ....promises.
Back soon Vest.

Just thinking their wedding could have been in 1959; not 1949therefore their 50th, still a cockup though.

Thanks Anonymous. Sad to say Izzy Dave who was a prominent visitor to Daily Gaggle and a good friend, passed away in the promised land while on vacation from Sydney, Dec last year, he was 69. Izzy Dave was an eight year old refugee on the Pan Crescent an illegal immigrant ship headed for Palestine Jan 1948, with 7,000 passengers. I was among the 14 man boarding crew.

A fleeing Taliban, desperate for water,

was plodding through the Afghanistan desert
when he saw something far off in the distance.
Hoping to find water, he hurried toward the object,
only to find a little old Jewish man at a small stand
selling ties.



The Taliban asked, 'Do you have water?'

The Jewish man replied, 'I have no water.


Would you like to buy a tie? They are only $5.

The Taliban shouted, 'Idiot! I do not need an
over-priced tie. I need water! I should kill you,
but I must find water first!

'OK,' said the old Jewish man, 'it does not matter
that you do not want to buy a tie and that you hate me.
I will show you that I am bigger than that. If you continue
over that hill to the east for about two miles, you will find
a lovely restaurant. It has all the ice cold water you need. Shalom.'

Muttering, the Taliban staggered away over the hill.


Several hours later he staggered back, almost dead.

'Your f***ing brother won't let me in without a tie!
