As Time Goes By
There is a museum in Belgium just for strawberries called Musee de la Fraise.
Konzag looked very suave
and sexy with that mustacca
many years ago.
His caterpillar mo has
now gone (probably a good
thing!) and his hair is a bit
shorter and thinner too. But
he’s still smiling!
Ireceived an email about getting
old, called “The Back Nine,”
from John Tayler, of Tarlee.
I don’t think that was a hint ...
Anyway, it was very thought
provoking and scary when you
realise you actually agree with and
remember what’s in the story.
There was also a list of “Old
Friend” funny quotes, so on John’s
behalf, I thought I’d share them
with you - and see how many you
1. Your kids are becoming you,
but your grandchildren are perfect;
2. Going out is good, but coming
home is better;
3. You forget names, but it’s OK
because other people have forgotten
they even knew you at all;
4. You realise you’re never go-
ing to be really good at anything,
5. The things you used to care to
do, you no longer care to do. And you
do care you’re not doing them now.
6. You sleep better on a lounge
chair with the TV blaring than in
bed. It’s called “pre-sleep.”
7. You miss the days when eve-
rything worked with just an “ON”
and “OFF” switch.
8. You tend to use more four letter
words, like “what?” and ”when?”
9. Now you can finally afford
expensive jewellery, it’s not safe
to wear it anywhere.
10. You notice everything they
sell in stores is “sleeveless?”
11. What used to be freckles are
now liver spots.
12. Everybody whispers.
13. You have three sizes of
clothes in your wardrobe, two of
which you will never wear.
14. All print is getting smaller
n LOCAL lovebirds, Kristin
(nee Schoenberg) and Scott (the
builder) Griffiths recently cel-
ebrated 20 years of married bliss.
Luckily for us, the duo hasn’t
changed much in the past 20 years,
and Kristin, an SSO at Riverton
primary, is still our favourite blonde
in that pretty town.
We know what her response
would be to that comment – “I are!”
Bill sets the pace
LOCALS Yvonne Howard and
Bev Roney have recently returned
from the USA where they were play-
ing bowls. Yes, bowls in the States!
While Bev was playing bowls in
Las Vegas, her husband Bill was left
to go sightseeing and shopping – solo.
Bill (pictured) decided to do a spot
of test driving– in a Ferrari around a
race track! As you do. But Bill, eve-
ryone knows you should’ve driven a
red car as it goes faster!

Louise found her passion in glass

MORE volunteers are needed
to help run the vital Riverton and
Snowtown ambulance services.
Volunteers are being sought
especially for shifts during business
hours. If your children are at school,
you are retired, study or work part-
time, have a serious think about
becoming an ambulance volunteer.
There’s an information seminar
at Clare ambulance station today
(October 30) at 10.30am and
7.30pm. But if you can’t attend
these sessions but would like more
information on what is involved,
please phone Leon on 0417 858 616.
(actually, that’s my addition!)

things: OLD Songs; OLD movies;
and best of all, OLD Friends!
Too true. Thanks John.
Calling all ‘quick wits’
Community Arts is having a
Come and Try “Quick Wits” theatre
workshop this Sunday, November
3, at 2pm.
It will be held in the Horizon
Drama rooms, and is for people
aged 18 years and over only.
Interested participants also have
the chance to be involved in a cabaret
performance to be held in the town
hall on Saturday, November 23.
The cabaret performance will
be along the lines of the TV shows,
“Whose line is it anyway?” and
It should be an interactive night
of hilarious fun.
Maybe this could be the place
to go for your Christmas work
Keep an eye out for cabaret de-
tails in later editions of the Plains
