How I Know Life Is On The Improve


Yes, I have enjoyed a Chicken Schnitzel at the local pub, and yes, I’ve finally had a hair cut.

But here’s the biggie. The Real M’Coy. The Cat’s Pyjamas. The BIGGIE that makes things feel like we are at last getting back on an even keel after bushfire, drought and a pandemic. Or at the very least to some semblance of normality……

The local Rotary Club is holding a sale of preloved books as a fundraiser for both national and international projects. It’s not the usual version with books laid out for your selection but more of a Pot Luck affair because of limited numbers and self distancing rules. No matter ; a box of adult fiction for $20 or a bundle of kids books for $10 reminds me of fossicking through a show-bag from the Royal Easter Show in Sydney when I was a child many, many moons ago. ( My personal favourite was always the Liquorice Bag).

Anything SciFi , Dystopian or with a Dragon on the cover will be shared amongst friends or end up at the Little Community Library. Afterall the one thing this pandemic has achieved is to remind us to be a little kinder to each other. Touch wood.

These were a recent donation to the Little Library by a local pensioner.

    1. Both. NZ did think they eradicated the virus because of an Island lockdown but a few idiots stuffed that for them with people flying in for a funeral and then “disappearing” from quarantine. Our figures are low, excellent in Qld, though NSW and VIc have escalated because, you guessed it, more idiots.

  1. Did any gems turn up in your $20 worth? Our library is now open but with security guard at the door and hand sanitisers everywhere. But oh so good to be able to browse again.
