  2. THINKING STRANGE THOUGHTS......THE GREAT PENSIONER RIOTS OF 98

    Thinking Strange Thoughts
    There was a lot written in the paper before xmas about the problems of ’schoolies week”, personally I don’t think their behaviour is too bad. My wife and I used to live in Pemberton and whilst Pemberton did not have a problem with ‘schoolies” it did have the dreaded “pensioners week”, and as someone who survived the “great pensioner riots of 98”, schoolies week seems fairly tame.

  5. THINKING STRANGE THOUGHTS......FOOTBALL HUMILIATION

    Thinking Strange Thoughts
    A lot of people assume that I am a ex- Olympic athlete, but no, nothing could be further from the truth, infact when I was young I was hopeless at sports, I had no coordination and would often attempt to head the ball during cricket. But for me the worst thing at school was when we played soccer. The Sports Teacher would leave the choosing of the teams to his “blue eyed boys” Don and Roy, they were great at everything, the teachers all loved them, the girls loved ...
