       Just as England lost Calais to France, Australia lost Les Darcy and Phar Lap to the Yankees.

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.


    "If the UK attempted to press claims to their old possessions in France the world would assume they lost their minds".
    - Dom.

    Frankly, I regret the loss of Calais.

    And whenever I meet a Frenchie on the bus, particularly if she is pretty, I ask - no demand - she return Calais.

    For reasons I don't understand, I get a sweet smile and a patient explanation that Calais is French.

    Naturally I demur and our conversation continues over milk coffee and croissants. And we reach an agreement in principle over Calais.

    But not so with Yankees, pretty or not. Naturally I demand to know what happened to Les Darcy and to Phar Lap.

    All I get is a strange look as though I have lost my mind.

    As I am highly suggestible, I do feel I have lost my mind. Then I think I should mention Calais, then I realise that would even be worse.

    And worse still, there is no milk coffee and croissants or an agreement in principle.

    And I am, as you know, a man of principle.

      I also like the conversation tone, I couldn't put my finger on it but that's it. This is a great example of principle and endearing as well.

      For an Oz, you write a lot like Gregory Corso. Very conversational. I like every line in this.
