Ah it looks like my most cunning plan is working nice work Jamison remember just two drops at night 

Is that any 4 races or just races 1-4 or is it meant to be all 7

Do you get the impression I am busy and distracted today ? Haha...fixed now.

Jamison peed on the couch last week so he is in disgrace at present. I think it was in response to his pathetic effort last Saturday  😏.

Newcastle. Bob Hudson, " never let a chance pass yah by.". Legend of a song .

Forgotten that song Reece. Classic:

THE NEWCASTLE SONG

Bob Hudson

 

Chorus:
Dont' you ever let a chance go by,
O Lord,
Don't you ever let a chance go by.
Yes, up in Newcastle they have very strange mating habits.
All the young women of Newcastle
walk down the main street
which is called Hunter Street
for reasons that will become obvious
later on in the song.
All the young men of Newcastle
drive down Hunter Street
in their hot FJ Holdens
with chrome plated grease nipples
and double reverse
overhead twin cam door handles,
sitting eight abreast in the front seat,
and they lean out of the window
and say real cool things to the sheilas
on the footpath, like 'Aah g'day'.
And every now and then, of course,
one of the young ladies thinks to herself
Ummmm
she thinks
Ummmmm.

Don't you ever let a chance go by, oh Lord
Don't you ever let a chance go by

Chorus
Anyway there was this mob of blokes
driving down Hunter Street
in the front seat of the hot FJ
with chrome plated grease nipples
and twin overhead foxtails,
and the coolest of them all,
who got to sit near the window,
was young Norm.
And they pulled up outside
the Parthenon milk bar
and standing outside
the Parthenon was this beautiful looking sheila.

Oooh! Oooh! said young Normie
who'd come top of his class in English,
Ooooh! he said.
So he leaned out of the window,
and he said real, real suave like,
he said G'day.
This nine foot tall Hell's Angel
came out of the Parthenon milk bar,
looked at Norm and said
Arr, what are ya?
Norm said What are you?
Bloke on the footpath said
D'ya want a go, do ya mate, eh?
Norm said Yeah, d'you want a go, mate?
Bloke on the footpath said
Yeah I'll have a go
Norm said
D'you know who you're picking?
The bloke on the footpath said
Nah, who am I picking?
Norm said
You find out
And all of a sudden there was a break in the traffic,
and as any young Newcastle lad knows-
when you're getting monstered
by a nine foot tall Hells Angel
and there's a break in the traffic....

Chorus

Don't you ever let a chance go by, oh Lord
Don't you ever let a chance go by

that song was the talk of New Zealand for weeks ...we ( those of a certain age and gender) all knew all the words ...cos it 'hit a nerve'/ struck a chord ...and you could swap the name 'Newcastle' for New Plymouth or New Brighton ...a shame, i a way, that it wasn't written and performed by John Clark / Fred Dagg  or even Billy T James ...we'd have another one over the bleedin' Ozzies. Big ups to Bob Hudson - a gem of a song.

...and as the saying goes, one thing leads to another. Or, one good turn deserves another ...see pic/article below

And if Hesi doesn't like my use of ellipses, I'll just wait for a break in the traffic ...

You can ellipse yourself silly Maxi 😁

I think Hesi has other things to worry about right now.

All good now, I've had worse visits to the dentist

Can't praise the public health system enough, in the first major encounter I have had with them

Very professional  and thorough and friendly
