“The state government could try to thwart a plan to expand a clifftop walk in Cronulla,” reports Cabarita’s Bob Phillips. “Ex-senator and ex-city councilor Michael Forshaw is lobbying the state government to commit to the project. May I suggest that the strip, if it continues, be called The Forshaw Foreshore Walk?’ Sure.
Back in your corner, El Nino. “Today’s raindrops on roses and puddles on streets have become my favorite things,” says Harrington resident Joy Cooksey.
Regarding tattoo etiquette (C8), Freda Banner, from Northbridge, notes that her four-year-old granddaughter is more than happy to watch: “She stared at the tattooed young lady sitting next to her on the train and asked her, ‘Why.’ are you full of graffiti?’ too much laughter.”
Roger Harvey, from Balgowlah, “really wanted my teenage daughter to meet a fascinating group of people non-binary tattoo artists in Leichhardt and got in touch. Her boss looked up my name, saw that I was a cartoonist, and told me I should ink my own work instead. What happened (at my hands) at the age of 67, in front of my daughter.”
“I’m not sure what the etiquette is when looking at tattoos,” says Robert Doepel of Greenway (ACT), “but I fear for the future when there will be countless old people with tattoos that resemble a Salvador Dali painting similar.”
“Ah – adverbs (C8),” says Jennifer Briggs from Kilaben Bay. “It has been declining since the Regency era. Nobody looks good these days, they just look good. How charming it would be to look charming.”
“In addition to the David Atherfold (C8) signs, there was one that I often passed warning ‘Older people cross here’ – which I often remarked to my partner that older people everywhere are evil!” But I was much younger back then,” recalls Brian Kidd from Mount Waverley (Vic).
“Every construction site has a ‘hard hats required’ sign posted on it,” notes Queens Park resident Andrew Taubman. “But they often look brand new!”
“Not on the C8 punctuation police issue, but English is the language used to drive on park roads but park in driveways,” writes George Zivkovic from Northmead. “It is also the language in which one recites in a play but performs in a concert. Don’t forget: If you transport something by car, it’s called a shipment; if you transport something by ship, it’s called freight. Makes you think twice about signs like “Slow Playing Children.”
