Short and not so sweet like a baboon's arse May 9

Not much happened on this day in history.
Except they screeched it from the rafters in 1850 that Horsham (Victoria) was going to be a village....once they'd located their token idiot within the government.
Kiwi kids were jumping for joy in 1907, not because they had ants in their pants, but due to the first issue of The School Journal. You can be like the Kiwi kids and read more HERE and HERE.
Nyora train station (fab video!) was over-flowing in 1910 with happy lil campers trying to make a break for it when the line opened to the Powlett Coalfields (fab photos!) aka Wonthaggi.
Kiwis were throwing a party when VE Day was officially announced in 1945.
Lizzie Windsor  was allowed to open New Parliament House in Canberra just to keep the gel off the streets in 1988.

See?
I told you not much happened on this day!
Now....back to the repeats of Bergerac we've been waiting 20 yrs to see with Tom Barnaby so obviously running amok before he hit Midsomer.....and trying to work out why they get the DVD boxed set of 4 original St Trinian movies in UK but we rate a piddly two....when bees get drunk on fermented fruit does that make the honey alcoholic?....when a forty yr old climbs a tree is it still permisable to chant "I'm the king of the castle and you're the dirty rascal"?....and poke your tongue out at the kids next door?

I take it baboons' arses taste a bit sour then?

The train is so cute and looks like there are some pretty steep hills for it to climb.

Dunno, Brian, although I heard a rumour via the fringe nutters in politics that a little cottage cheese made them palatable!

Yep, wouldn't mind a trip on the train, looks like a ball of fun :)

Yes.

When bees get dr on fermented fruit do they give mead instead of honey?

River said...

Oops. That's "drunk".

Jayne said...

Perfect answer, Jeanie, thanks lol ;)

Tippling the mead and alter wine again, River?! lol

Not too sure about 40 year olds but for 50 year olds it is...and regularly too...
