FLOODS, BRUNSWICK VALLEY,NSW, AUSSIE

IT’S NATURE’S WILL.

WHAT A DOWN POUR, AND PROBEBLY AIN’T OVER YET.
To all of the people affected by the inundation in the BRUNSWICK VALLEY NSW, AUSSIE and in particular northern NSW and southern QLD, please stay safe. The damage to property and infrastructure will be horrendous and present many interruptions to normal life for some time. To ALL my colleagues in the STATE EMERGENCY SERVICE and supporting agencies, RFS, NSWFB, VRA, DOCS, THE POLICE, ST VINNIES, RED CROSS, SLSC and all the other people from other agencies, KEEP YOUR HEAD DOWN.

To all the holiday makers and visitors to our areas, BLOODY SORRY about that, you will come back?, PLEASE.
To the people stranded with limited food and essential commodities’, everything is being implemented to assist you in your time of need. Every logistic avenue will be investigated to get you some help, IT’S THE AUSTRALIAN WAY. Keep out of harms way. And to anybody who thinks they can tackle those flooded causeways, GET A LIFE, cause you’ll lose it if you throw caution out the window. In our little region of the BRUNSWICK VALLEY, Northern NSW, no less than 7 motor vehicles have been swept from inundated crossings, 3 were YOU BEAUT four wheel drive’S, some with multiple passengers. Some haven’t been seen yet. All lives were spared.

OUR ADVICE TO YOU; DON’T BLOODY DO IT!!, We are not a towing service. Our members don’t need tragedy in our patch. AGAIN, to our affected citizens, please wait it out, help will come.

FLOODS, BIG TIME #2.

HAVE TO TELL YOU THAT THE TOTAL FOR MOTOR VECHILES WASHED FROM FLOODED CAUSEWAYS HAS RISEN TO 12, that’s right, one dozen. You wanna be No.13? Do you know the BRUNSWICK VALLEY Northern NSW, MAIN ARM and WILSONS CREEK? Go on temp the Devil’s number, we’ll be very cross.
We can’t blame the 4 wheel drive Manufacturers, they use professional drivers and they tell us just that, and, 50% of the cars where sedans, however all are irresponsible impetuous drivers. My organization don’t need you, get your act together.
Many lives have been lost in our little area; TAKE YOUR HAND OFF IT.

ODE TO THE FLOODED CAUSEWAY. John Farley.

THAT BUGGERS UP AGAIN, THAT WAS QUICK THEY WERE RIGHT, BUT WHAT WOULD THEY KNOW, THIS MY DOMAIN.

LETS HAVE A GO, WILL I, NAH, TAKE THE SHOES OFF AND WADE A LITTLE, SEEMS OK, WHATS THAT STAFF GAUGE SAY?, ONLY ONE METRE? GEES MUST HAVE A PIDDLE.

NERVOUS, ANXIOUS, CALM IS THE Antonym, who knows better.

HAVE A GO YER MUG, MAYBE ONE DAY THE WORD IS R.I.P., THAT’S IT, LET HER RIP, ME NAMES GOD, SO SEND ME A LETTER.

SO BLOODY EASY, DID’NT I TELL YEAH? I’LL DRIVE HER FAST, MAKE A WAVE, THINK OF THE ARK.

WELL THE LIGHT IS GROWING DIM, SO WHAT, HOME FOR TEA AND FAMILY STUFF AND HEAR OLD FAITFULL BARK.

AND HOWL AND WHINGE AND FRET AND ACT LIKE A LONELY ANIMAL WITHOUT A FRIEND, SHE KNOWS WHATS UP.

I’LL GET THERE, DID’NT I TELL YER, I AM INVINCIPLE, I AM A’WINNIN.

YOU BEAUT, NEARLY THERE, PISS OF LOG, DON’T NEED YOU, OR MORE GOT THE BASTARDS GOT ME, I’AM GO’IN SWIMMIM.

STRANGE EMOTIONS, MANY ODD THOUGHTS.

ME LIFE, ME MATES, ME WIFE AND KIDS, THE OLD BITCH.

MUST LEARN A BETTER WORD FOR ME DOG, NOW HERE’S THE PITCH.

I’VE BUGGER HIM UP AND ALL’S GETTING BLACK, HEAPS OF BUBBLES.

BUBBLES, I CAN USE THEM, YES I CAN. THEIR FLEETING THINGS, I GRAB FOR THEM. I’AM IN DEEP TROUBLES.

UPSIDE DOWN, I DON’T HAVE A CLUE, THE AIR IS LIQUID SEEMS LIKE COFFEE, THE FEELING OF RELEASE IS SOMEHOW RELAXIN’.

WHAT HAVE I DONE, I DON’T BLAME MYSELF, IT WAS SOMEHOW STUPID BUT THE FEELIN’S PERPLEXIN.

HERE WE GO THERE’S THAT LAST BUBBLE, PEACE HAS GOT ME, ME WIFE, MY KIDS, ME DOG.

WHEN YAH FIND ME WEILD THAT CUDGEL.

ALL I WANT IS MY WIFE AND KIDS, ME DOG, AND THE MATES AT BILLINUDGEL.

ME WIFE ME ME DOGs kid.

Me wife me kids me dog.

I MADE A BAD CHOICE, DO A BETTER JOB NEXT TIME, FORGIVE ME AND LEARN.

ME WIFE AND KIDS, ME DOG

I WOULD STILL BE HERE BUT FOR THAT FRIGGEN LOG.
