Chicken McBites $2. Is that each?

It will come to that one day, I know.

I said many years ago that I'd stop drinking beer when it got to $2 a schooner.

Talk about procrastinating!  :beers:  ;D

A schooner of Reschs has just gone up by 20 cents a schooner thanks to government excise the pub tells me. $2 a schooner, them were the days!

The beer at my local club here in the Gong went up 20c the other week.

It's now $5.20, so I'm just putting money onto me clubcard, so I pay with that instead of having to scrabble around in me pocket looking for 20c  ;)

I'm $6.40 a schooner, so I can still get three for $20. That situation will change all too soon I'm afraid. It's enough to turn one into a wino.

Yes, I'm going to Sydney a lot since the birth of my grandaughter. It's on average $6-$15.

I've actually joined Randwick bowling club, which is only 50m up the hill from my daughter's place, and I can negotiate it even on the crutches.

$5.40 for the year, card gets you into three clubs in the area, discount prices, reward points, and discount holidays in Nelson's Bay.

It's paid for itself already!  :beers:

Ok, bus stops fans.

(I don't believe people are actually following this!)

It rained here in Bealman's part of NSW yesterday, which is bloody great, we need the rain.

To prove Bealman hasn't deserted the bus stop, here is Bealman Bootman in the rain.... hasn't stopped the raspberry pies, though!  ;D

I do believe you're wrong. I always start feeling hungry when reading your posts though..........

I agree,

Who needs pictures of Roger's amazing Wrenton layout when you can look at burger pics and someone's foot  :D. Need more trolley pics and daylight aliens though - I miss them.

Back to the funny farm.

Cheers weave  :beers:

PS Have you asked anyone you know if they've tried a raspberry and cream whatever it is?

I'm waiting for the documentary, the full-length feature film dramatization and a spin-off reality TV series  :thumbsup:

Most soap operas have a corner shop and a pub. Why not start one that features ....... 'The Bus Stop'  ???. Think of the the stories - the two old ladies going to Bingo, the yob with a spray can, the teen lovers - the list is endless!  :)

Or a sitcom based on a late '70s Thames Television one where Bealman's bus doesn't turn up and he gets stuck in the Wollongong rain for days. It could be called 'George and Mildew'.

Sorry,  :-[, I'll get my 99p burger and cold fries  :(
