Mother's Hospital Visit Update

All went well. Except, over half an hour in the taxi from home to the Eye and Ear hospital. Who's idea was it to close St Kilda Road south bound, close Linlithgow Avenue completely and close Domain Road for some fun run in the middle of a working day? It would have taken half the time in the tram, but it was too hot for Mother.

Disgrace, City of Melbourne.

    David Tennant's. Now he's packed Dr. Who in, he's got bugger all else to do.

  2. What a stupid decision!
    Glad to hear all went well for your Mum :)

    *It couldn't have been yummy David Tennant, he was too busy on Prime tv in NZ last night, apparently ;)

  3. I'm glad all went well with your Mum. Gawd, it was hot as Hades yesterday until that glorious cool change. Thunders and lightenings. Storms must look amazing from your vantage point.

  4. I believe he switched Blackers lights on this year Brian.

    In New Zealand Jayne? Is he coming here too?

    They do look pretty impressive LiD, but alas I was not home to watch.

  5. I think you might be right there, Andrew. Like I said...bugger all else to do.

  6. David Tennant's too busy being attacked by an immaculate pair of trousers to warrant such a transport obstruction...I blame Harold Saxon (who, ironically, looks like the Director of Public Transport: Jim Betts).

  7. Sadly, no, Andrew, he was just gracing a Kiwi friends tv screen and she was extolling his virtues to me via the net.

  8. Ever attended a 'switching on' Brian?

    (I'll give this a shot to see if I can get some sense) And what sort of trousers do you wear Reuben? How do you look with them off? Muscular thighs?

    I see Jayne. You do chat lines then hey.

  9. Quite a few in my time, Andrew. I'm too old and crusty to stand around in Talbot Square surrounded by boisterous drunks nowadays though. I'd much rather spend an evening at home in front of the fire teaching the cat to pronounce his yowls.

    Incidentally, I couldn't help noticing that offensive little turd R.H. creeping back into your comments boxes. Ah well...I suppose I'd better stand by my word, which is more than he ever did by his. See you round Andrew...it's been fun.

  11. I was committing tomfoolery, Andrew. I always go in the nude.
