Default Re: tell a Model A related story

whilst I edit todays story here is some trivia to go on with.

Some people should avoid retail.

Patsy and I were motoring in outback NSW some years ago and arrived in the outback mining town of Cobar. It was breakfast time and we sort out a cafe to have breakfast.Old folks ran one and the service, meals and cleanliness was perfect. Some years later we looked for the same cafe and it had closed. We found a newly built one. Beautiful craftsmanship, local rounded and sawn timber tables and lining. Proper earthen tiles and tasteful decor. Well I asked for coffee and a bacon and egg roll. The bloke serving looked at me like I two heads so I asked if there was something wrong. Yes, we don’t have that.

Okay, do you have bacon and eggs? Yes. Do you have bread rolls? Yes. Well then you have a bacon and egg roll.
No, the bread rolls are for lunch.!

Sometime later I did flood relief flying out of Cobar and asked where that cafe/restaurant had gone.“Well the owner couldn’t make it pay and closed it.

Does that' surprise you?

I know many things,
But I don't know everything,
Sometimes I forget things.

And there are times when I have a long memory.
