“How to kill two birds with one stone,” says Kerry Kyriacou of Strathfield. “If some of these nuclear submarines were moored near Sydney in peacetime, could they be used to power the grid during times of high demand? The government can convince the Greens that we have not built any nuclear power plants on Australian soil and that we get our electricity from our own uranium. But we will I need some long extension cords.”
“To tie (C8) or not to tie, why is that the question these days – mention knots in C8?” reflects Milsons Point’s Edward Loong.
Now for the Desert Boot (C8) threat with Chris Wilkinson of Turramurra: “As a sixth year student in 1976, having previously played my Gentlemen’s XV (Thirds) rugby match, I put on school uniform to see the Seconds and to support Firsts, and wore desert boots instead of black shoes. One of our school’s black-clad religious groups conducted a fieldside survey during the Firsts game. About 30 of us were arrested for not wearing proper school uniforms to play. Guess the school. At least we didn’t have to wear our boat shoes to the games.”
“If someone walked around the shops with one eye closed (C8) they would have worse problems than a lack of peripheral vision,” says Dave Horsfall from North Gosford. “A lack of distance perception is one of them.”
George Manojlovic, from Mangerton, continues the cover-up: “Before my parents were allowed to enter Australia as displaced persons after the Second World War, they had to pass rigorous medical tests. Mom was very afraid that the poor eyesight in her left eye would prevent her from entering. The examiner asked her to cover her left eye with her hand and read the chart. Good. different eye. Instead of swapping eyes, Mom quickly switched hands. Happen. Nothing said. We’ll never know if it was a perfectly executed sleight of hand or if the examiner was just a compassionate guy.”
“I am so saddened to hear of the passing of Heather Lindsay (C8),” writes Austinmer’s Janice Creenaune. “I’ve had the pleasure of teaching with the two Heathers (Lindsay and Bailey) at different schools. Heather L not only made a wonderful contribution to this herald (C8 and letters) but a wonderful teacher, poet and playwright accommodating the large cast for the many in our classes. It meant thoughtful inclusion for everyone. We will miss them all.”
