Looking back to May 31

See what happens when I get my dander up over Oz history being mangled to smithereens?

On this day in history....

1678 - The Lady Godiva procession began flashing through the streets of Coventry, the fore runner of every Saturday night in the local pubs....

1759 - Outraged by the dreadful ankles flashed about on stage the Province of Pennsylvania banned all theatre productions but the British Govt sensibly struck out the law.

1813 - Lawson, Blaxland and Wentworth reached Mount Blaxland which marked the end to their Sunday saunter across the Blue Mountains.
They were really trying to find Coventry to join the Lady Godiva parade...

    That's funny!

    "I'm going for a walk across the mountains dear, be back about half past Friday...."
