My Blonde Moment #357854


On my epic roady across the country I had many blonde moments – this one takes the cake :

I had been driving for a while and busting to use the ladies so I decided to stop in at a little country pub in the Clare Valley region. I parked outside and left Chaos in the car while i did what i had to do ( It was 0 degrees outside , no need to call animal welfare ).

After I finished I went back inside the pub to buy something to drink and no one was in the pub – no staff or customers which I thought was a bit weird but then  country pubs are pretty laid back…. After 10 minutes of waiting I started to get  pissed off  . Bugger it I thought to myself Ill go and get a drink up the road. I stormed out of the pub to find a crowd gathered on the footpath , a couple of them looking as pissed off as I felt .. I looked at the carpark and realized why – my troopy obviously had a faulty handbrake (amongst other things ) and because I had only just started driving a manual I didn’t realize you have to leave them in gear when you park them. Which explains why my car had rolled down the slope and landed smack bang into this old guy’ s Nissan Patrol. Luckily for me he didn’t want to involve the cops because he was drunk and shouldn’t have been driving in the first place.

Anyway if Chaos had a phone I’m pretty sure he would have sent me this ….

True Blue – Bluey the pet Buff tells his side of the story


I found this article and the pics that go with on the NT news website this morning and couldn’t resist sharing them .

The funniest part of the story in my opinion was when Bluey s owner tried to teach Bluey how to roll in the mud … by doing it himself ! I would of loved to of seen that – imagine some bloke rolling around in a patch of mud with his pet buffalo looking at him like he has lost the plot !

Here is the article published in the NT news last week.

A BUFFALO accused of terrorizing a remote community has been described as a playful pet and not a menace.

Jarrod Shelton said Bluey the 500kg buffalo was friendly and ran at people to make friends with them, not to attack them.

“He is running up to lick them and play with them,” he said.

“He loves his pats.

“He’ll go around and get Weetbix off everyone.”

Bluey and Jarrod cooling off

Bluey was adopted by Mr Shelton and his partner, Glenda Robertson, a health worker, when he was two days old.

Stockmen found him abandoned in the bush and brought him to the couple, who had nursed other injured animals back to health.

The vet gave him little chance of survival but the animal lovers nursed him back to health.

Mr Shelton even taught him how to behave like a buffalo by rolling in the mud himself and encouraging Bluey to copy.

Now approaching his second birthday, Bluey has reached the “naughty teenage phase”.

In his attempts to find a girlfriend, the bashful beast often knocks over bins and “horns” rocks and cars.

The NT News received complaints from an anonymous source who said Bluey was a “hazard” to the community on Wednesday.

But Mr Shelton said he had never injured anyone and the locals were used to his antics.

“No one has actually come up and said he’s a nuisance. I think that opinion comes from people who don’t live here,” he said.

“He loves people. I don’t think he would injure anyone unless they were stupid and didn’t get out of his way.”

Ms Robertson said the reports “upset” her because she loved Bluey.

“He loves us so much and most people don’t see that,” she said.

“We love him too. We’ve tried to take him out bush but he just followed us back. It’s not that easy to just take him out bush and leave him.”

Reason # 141 why you should lock the door at night ….


Reason # 141 why you should lock the door at night ....

Earlier this year a Darwin woman was sleeping peacefully when she was woken by her dog going nuts outside her bedroom door . Can you imagine her surprise when she opened the door to find a 1.7 meter Salt water croc just chillin” out in her lounge room ! Her husband ( armed with his trusty guitar ) managed to edge past the croc and get to the phone to call animal management who came to the rescue , wrestling the croc into submission.

Apparently this croc , along with many others , escaped from the Darwin Crocodile farm around 6 years ago. Since then locals have complained they have had 15 crocs in their back yards over the last 5 years ..However the croc farm gave them a carton of beer and a croc trap as a consolation ,  gotta be happy with that ! ;D

Croc Shock at NT Primary School


A nine year old girl was playing on the oval at Manunda Terrace Primary School, Karama NT ( a suburb of Darwin) when she discovered a baby salt water crocodile chewing a hole in her sock ! The kids freaked –  as they would ( actually I thought the 10 yr old boys would of been

loving it ! ) But the principal saved the day with a trusty old Esky 😉 – The croc declined to comment except to say everyone should be entitled to an education .

Oh No ! Radio !


I met a bloke at the pub I work at who is a sales manager at the FM radio station in Darwin. We got chatting and I asked him about some promo work and next thing I know I have a weeks trial driving the 1049 van around in the mornings handing out chokky milk and newspapers . Sounds easy right ? Wrong. I woke up this morning with NO VOICE !!! Ahhhh wtf this never happens to me , i can talk all day long in fact shut up is one of the most common phrases used by those around me ….. Anyway I got to the station and read through the script twice . Both times were absolutely shocking but apparently not shocking enough to put them off hiring me for a week. So next Monday I will be live on Darwin radio trying desperately not to drop the F bomb .. wish me luck !! xxx
