Wet Wet Wet

I certainly feel it in my toes which means it may be time to go up market and buy the $20 shoes next time

Nothing worse than a cocky weather person. They finally get it right one time out of ten and ya cant shut them up. We got around the 200 mm over two days last week which filled all the reservoirs on golf course along with most of the bunkers! Its either feast or famine here I tell ya. Its great for the course long term but now we need a break to actually start cutting some grass so we can actually see where the Green may be. Just as bunkers start to dry out we get another 30 mm over night and back to square 1. Have missed my Wednesday Golf outing two weeks in a row now just when I was on fire and dropped 2 shots off handicap – and hooked into some friendly wallets big time. On the days in between of course we get the grey skies and big tease which leads to 2 spots of rain and 112% humidity. The weather app says “temp is 28, feels like 34”. No shit Sherlock. Of course we have our locals – bless their little grey cotton socks – who as soon as skies turn grey its out with the track pants and long sleeve Hoodies! Yesterday I actually did the Bogan Double and it was a sight to behold and one certainly hard to forget. Centrelink to Commonwealth Bank in space of 10 mins. Oddly the CBA line up was more alarming and can only assume Centrelink had cleared as it had been open for 30 minutes. There was a guy sitting outside the CBA busking as an “Aussie Joke Teller” and rather than a hat or bucket to collect the pennies he had a plastic ice cream container which can only hope was empty. Certainly no money in it.

Both trips into Hell related to upcoming Call Me Bwana trip next month . Have to inform Centrelink will be out of country of course – and not going to China – and then try and get some US$ for South African trip naturally. Travelex has been hacked for a while now so went with the front up to counter approach and see if they had any of the green stuff lying around. They did luckily but not a lot so will grab some more at an actual Currency Exchange in city. You get gouged at CBA trust me so doubt it will be much worse

For a relatively short holiday – 7 days actual on safari – certainly a lot of preparation needed. Last week was vaccination time and of course nothing is ever simple. It starts a few weeks ago getting your own immune status checked and then the discussion about which actual injections you need. I asked if there was a “No Moron vaccination” available but alas no. Luckily my immune status for that was high. As CLP and I went to different doctors we got different advice and hence different “cover”. I can’t get Yellow Fever now but could get cholera or rabies if I eat any monkey brain I guess. If I do throw up over CLP though its ok as she did get rabies and cholera cover but not Yellow Fever. Figure if we stay close together we can share our immunities.

Also have the Anti-Malarials lined up along with bug spray and long sleeved clothes. My defense now is as solid as the Watto Forward Push. Oops……. may not be a good weekend

Speaking of diseased monkey brains one simply cannot fathom how Buffoon Bob keeps getting away with the crap he does. Its no great surprise he does what he does as he is who he is but the spineless sycophant Republicans who continually support him are a disgrace. Its primary time now of course which is both fascinating and unbelievable. The Iowa cluster fuck is surely a woeful portent for the race ahead. I though ABC struggled to fill in the long hours of an Election Night broadcast but they have nothing on CNN that can spread out an ” America Decides” broadcast over 12 hrs including 10 hrs before polls even close! They love Exit Polls over there and bar up over the “23% of white women, college educated, lesbian, unemployed, first time voters” who said they were undecided until they actually voted. That’s good for a 30 minute round table discussion on which delegate that will favour in this all important first of 98 caucuses to be held. It all matters nothing because as we all know with BB nothing sticks. Except face tan it appears…….

Its an odd world we live in with no sign of a return to normality anytime soon. All one can do is try and see as much of it as possible before the walls come crashing down. Given the strength of some of the ones BB has put up recently could be just around the corner…..
