    Wordle (and other word related games)

    I always do Wordle and Quordle usually at arvo coffee and I sometimes do the 8 and 16 games ones too. I accidentally started with the same word yesterday - I used it last week too. I know it does not matter but I like to use the first 5 letter word I see, eg "Party" (animal) in the paper, (Footy) "Final" in the Surf Club.

    How is Megan doing so far?

    All the male members of the RF do some service with the Armed Forces. Prince Andrew flew helicopters in the Falklands War. Prince Harry was in, I think Afghanistan? Prince William flew rescue helicopters. Prince Philip was in the RN during WW2 and only relectantly gave up his naval career when Elizabeth became queen. Prince Charles was also in the RN? I think the only one who had an tough time in the Army was Prince Edward?

    Yesterday - Friday - I failed both W and Quordle, the first time I've ever done that.

    Prince Andrew did wrong and it may have been worse than what Prince Harry and Meaghan have done but that does not excuse them.

    How is Megan doing so far?

    If they'd gone to the USA and kept a low profile I'd have no problem with them. That's why they left isn't it? But they never shut up. And as I keep saying, the so called interview with Oprah when they KNEW Prince Philip was dying, ended any respect I have got them.

    As I said, the "interview" with Oprah was lies from start to finish, and Oprah never challenged them on a single point.

    Too busy to post just one update on their new life in England when they always had the time to post windy in Oz?

    I dislike them because of that awful "interview" with Oprah when they told a pack of lies and, even worse, they went ahead with it knowing that Prince Philip was dying.

    Has Bug Family posted recently? I wanted to know how he's getting on? Sorry if I've missed his posts.

    Rights of Way, Footpaths

    I've not been walking in the UK for a long time but if there's a public footpath thru a field then I THINK(?) the farmer has obligations regarding walkers. Walking between a cow and its calf is not a good idea but other than that situation I THINK(?) it's safe to walk through a field. Are farmers allowed to keep a bull on its own in a field? In the New Forest where I'm from livestock runs free and, again, walking between a cow or pony and its young is foolish, ditto trying to pay NF ponies. For all that, I'm a scaredy cat(and a poet) and I doubt I'd walk thru a field with livestock in it.

    That's true but in the case of WA there is also the "us and them" situation with "them" being "The Eastern States" - remember McGowan closing WA for so long during the pandemic? I thought perhaps they might show some solidarity but footy rivalry trumps state rivalry. Then there's the situation where your state rival is playing a club which you hate even more. "Everybody hates Collingwood" I've heard more than once. A bit like "Who does a Man Utd fan want to lose more when Man City play Liverpool?" When Arsenal play Chelsea I want them both to lose but I'll go for the result that most favours Spurs. There's a similar attitude in QLD towards the southern states. I must ask some of the blokes I know who support the QLD NRL teams who they go for if one of their state rivals are playing a NSW club. I already know how they feel in State of Origin - more important to beat NSW than England in The Ashes.

    I didnt like the Giants at first but now I've got them as my second team. I have a soft spot for Carlton too. I felt sorry for them yesterday losing by a point to Collingwood. With the help of blokes in the Surf Club in Surfers I put my first bet on since the Melbourne Cup on Melbourne Storm, Sydney Swans and Tottenham to win their three games. It came thru too, just, and I won $15.10 for my $5 stake. One of the other bloke put $50 on the same bet.

    I don't follow either and when I was over there I was interested to note that, whilst the Sandgropers might talk disparagingly about "The Eastern States", when one of their AFL clubs was playing a Melbourne team, there was no WA solidarity. If the Dockers were playing them then the Eagles supported the Melbourne team, and vice versa. Strangely, for me, I used to hate the Giants (I like the Swans) but now I think of them as my second or third team. I have a soft spot for Carlton as I liked John Elliot.

    I'm sure I Googled it! There's a village near where I was brought up in Hants, still there, only a couple of miles from my own village, but now the school and village shop have gone though there's still a pub or rather a club I think. The thing is, a village without a shop, cafe, pub, other facilities, has lost its "soul". Driving to another village, mall, whatever does not cut it for me. I love being able to walk to my "locals." I've been to my local cafe twice today and I'm presently in the Surf Club for dinner and drinks. If I had one of those electronic tags fitted that beeped if I went more than a km from where I live I could still live happily. So, could I handle a tiny township in the outback? As long as it has a pub and a shop, no worries though I might panic at the thought of the once a month visit from the Flying Doctor. I like to be able to go to the doc whenever I like.
