Seeing as its Melbourne Cup time, a couple of gems from a late great race broadcaster. Don’t run up stairs! Never try to get out of gaol in the last if it’s a mares race! When you go through the turnstiles, you take off your head and put on a pumpkin. Do any of the former and you’ll surely come home with a sand shoe on one foot and a sardine tin on the other! So if your having a once a year flutter tomorrow, best of luck!

While reading some recent posts around here, this one came to mind;

If it ain't broke,
don't fix it.

Fred Finucane was a relative of mine by marriage. He was a larger-than-life character. He passed away several years ago, at the age of 80 plus.

One day his neighbour asked him:-
Why did you name your dog "Condom"?
Fred said, I didn't, his name is Dominic.
Neighbour said "But every day you call out "Condom, Condom"
Fred replied No, I call
" Come on Dominic,
Come on Dom,
C'm on Dom,
C'on Dom,
C'on Dom!"
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

I heard a new saying a couple of days ago.

On seeing some new-beaut thing, he said " will you look at that? somebody will be putting a wheel on wheelbarrows soon."
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

Another one about Fred Finucane:-

Fred was a keen hunter and fisherman, activities his Wife did not join him on.

One night, Fred had parked his car and caravan near a favourite fishing spot and was woken during the night by local motorbike thugs circling his camp and kicking and hitting his caravan.
Fred didn't even open the door, he just fired two shots through the open roof vent, with his 303 rifle.
The bikies all went away as fast as they could!
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

One to remember when you are dealing with public servants and bureaucrats:-

Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

My Brother-in-Law once worked with a man they called Guy Fawkes because he loved to blow up things. (the original Guy Fawkes was caught trying to blow up the British Houses of Parliament in 1605, as a religious protest against King Charles, since called the Gunpowder Plot, and celebrated as Guy Fawkes Day)

Brother-In-Law and Guy Fawkes got a contract to demolish an overhead walkway across the railway yards in Wellington, New Zealand.
Guy Fawkes reckoned that if he strapped old mattresses around the walkway, he could blow it all up and just pick up the fallen steel.
He wrapped it and blew it up. The walkway was still there but the railway yards and nearby streets and houses were covered with kapok from the mattresses!
