Raffle & Norm`s Ramblings

Saturday’s weather was a bit of a contrast with earlier in the week when rain kept falling. Over the week we had 17 mm, but by the weekend things settled down, and Saturday was pleasant enough for everyone to enjoy Medal Day. The most enjoyment was gained by Steve Driver who scored a hole in one on the 17th. Congratulations Steve.

Raffle time saw Peter Corby’s name come out first for a Cliffex meat tray. At last he can walk in the door without his wife berating him for not arriving home with food. It means that their constant meals of peanut butter sandwiches can be put aside for a week or so. Frazer Rankine won the other meat tray. I had to chase him halfway to the car park with a prize he left behind, so he then bought raffle tickets. Another strange coincidental occurrence. The Crown Lager six-pack was won by Rob di Virgilio for I think the third time in four weeks. I thank Rob for his support, and point out to other participants that both he and Munzie tend to buy tickets almost on a bulk basis.

Mid-week players must be rubbing their hands together with the absence of the Bandit who has gone north for the AGM of the Greasy Armpits Motor Cycle Club. Excitement before he left when he went to watch his son Jonathan play football somewhere in the Brunswick area. The Bandit reckons that Jonathan is more like his wife Teena than him. I’m not sure if that means that his son plays like a girl, or that Teena plays in the Ladies’ Balls and All Football League. Anyway, during the course of the match someone snuck into the change rooms and knocked off Jonathan’s bag containing his clothes and car keys. Funny how football matches cause this type of behaviour, and that change room doors remain unlocked and unsupervised while play goes on. A few days later, after living in the car, the thief drove it to rob a TAB in Newport and finally got nabbed. Jonathan got his car back, plus his car keys, but without his belongings which had been tossed out somewhere. Also missing were the Bandit’s own gear which included a large box full of antique golf balls, and three suitcases containing all of his unsuccessful TAB tickets from the last ten years. The Bandit has informed the Greasy Armpits Compliance Squad, and they have passed on that info to their Melbourne affiliate the Kickarse Skullcrackers Motor Cycle Club to find the thief and deal with him appropriately.

Try this exercise to improve your mind and co-ordination. While sitting, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles. Now, while doing this, draw the number “6” in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction, and there’s nothing you can do about it! Funny, that!
