Possums you like.

We are reassured to discover that the New Zealanders and Aussies have a northern sense of humour. It is dry and often very pointed but always funny! The bus driver this morning had two pet hates. Australians and possums. He continually rubbed in the victory over Oz in the rugby world cup. He even got them shouting back. Over their lack of a navy he said If we got attacked we would have to row out and throw possums at em! He had resisted all the hints of his wife to take a holiday abroad so she gave him a passport application for Christmas. There was clearly no love lost between the two islands but he did tell us the south island was very pretty .... If you like possums. There was one place where the homes were perched on small terraces and could only be reached by small lifts. Reminded me and David of our first house in St Mawes! It is very beautiful here. Especially if you like possums! - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone
