Raffle and Norm`s Ramblings

We’re sorry to say that we don’t have any special events to match last week’s highlights. Renato Urlus took no chances with Ken Greer, playing in a group about 45 minutes later. Somebody said they saw a cricket helmet in his golf bag, but I cannot be sure of that. The Grumpy Grandfather was reported as being seen parked in Coutts Street a couple of times, but from what I understand he is really harmless. Place a set of figures in front of him and he’s off to Dreamland. In fact, shove a plate of sausages in front of him and you won’t see him for dust. Yours truly failed to front up for golf because a battery in my golf cart failed to function, so I’m not sure if the Bandit had any near successes during his round. He usually puts through an SMS if he feels there is a chance. I just love saying no.

Speaking about the Bandit, a week or so ago I took him aside for a quiet chat. My wife, who most of you know does clothing alterations, was asked by a client if she could help out in a bucket list request for a close friend. Evidently, the term bucket list has developed through the need of people, especially younger people, to have the satisfaction of gaining items or achieving ambitions before they die. It helps them immensely to cope with their plight, as well as friends and family who try to fulfil those last requests. Our friend was seeking a Wilson tennis racquet in good order, and had just about exhausted Vinnies and the Salvos shops around the Peninsula. Could we help? My mind ticked over, and came up with the Bandit. He plays tennis regularly, and among his opponents surely there may be one who has an old racquet. Our little meeting was to find out if he had a source (not the Greasy Armpits Motor Cycle Club stolen goods warehouse!) among his more sedate friends. I am pleased to report that during the past week the Bandit not only picked up a Wilson tennis racquet, but deposited it with our neighbour, notified us (we were up in Yarrawonga playing golf), we notified our friend, then our neighbour, and the final result was our friend picking up the racquet from next door and delivering it to the central point for this particular bucket list. While we have a little bit of fun with the Bandit, I draw attention to the type of person he is, helpful, honest (? his handicap), thoughtful, friendly, and obviously someone who at the right time can be relied upon. From my point of view I can only express the satisfaction I get from our contact, and nominate him as one of the most decent people I have ever met.

By the way, the raffle prizes were won by John Kuchel, Tony de Corrado (meat trays) and Beverley Hocking (Crown Lager six-pack). I ducked for cover when the last one came out!
