Narooma Rotary Beacon 11 May 2017

Short Words

Friday morning saw a few hiccups in setting up at the Oyster Festival which we were able to sort out quickly and by all accounts things went well from then on. I believe it was a major effort by all and thank you for the hard work.

The Busking signs are now up and around town many thanks to John Doyle and the car club have confirmed their appearance adding another dimension to a wonderful programme.

Last Thursday night we had the pleasure of DGN Margaret Hassel from Cooma at our meeting. Margaret was down learning how to fly the new web site that Frank has created for them.

Our meeting and board meeting went to time and thank you for all (and especially Charmaine) for moving things along, Bob Aston will be proud.

This Thursday night we are having a fun night with a difference !!!!! bring friends and partners.

Michael is powering along on the “track” and doing a bit of sightseeing. He is offering a bottle of wine to the person who can work out what is in the water from the photo below (see highlighted section). If more than one person gets it then the names will go into a hat and the winner will be ……..

You may be able to see a clear picture on Michael’s Facebook Page.

Take care,   Bob Ant

This week’s Beacon

This week’s Beacon is quite short, my apologies to all avid readers. Therese and I were away for the weekend and I missed last week’s meeting as well as the Oyster Festival. From all accounts the Club Assembly and the Board meeting went well and the Oyster Festival was a great success. I understand that Friday night was particularly busy with the van well supported by festival goers. Thanks to all who helped on Friday night and on Saturday.

Busking Competition

The next major event for the Club will be the Busking Competition 27 May. The Competition has the potential to be a huge event for the Club and Narooma. Please promote it to your friends and family – it would be great to see a big turn out on the day. Please help Sandra and her hard-working committee where you can. The more members we have helping make the job just that little bit easier.

Trivia Night

I hope everyone is swotting up for next week’s trivia night at Moruya. I am sure that the Moruya Club will be keen to regain the ‘Cinders Trophy’, however, I know that we have the superior capability and we are sure to win on the night.

What is Butt Dust – Thanks to the usual crew

What, you ask, is ‘Butt dust’? What do you do or say, when an innocent child asks you something so innocent and they are so serious? Read on and you’ll discover the joy in it! These must be original and genuine. No adult is this creative!!

JACK (age 3) was watching his Mom breast-feeding his new baby sister… After a while he asked: ‘Mom why have you got two? Is one for hot and one for cold milk?’

MELANIE (age 5) asked her Granny how old she was. Granny replied she was so old she didn’t remember any more. Melanie said, ‘If you don’t remember you must look in the back of your panties. Mine say five to six.’

STEVEN (age 3) hugged and kissed his Mom good night. ‘I love you so much that when you die I’m going to bury you outside my bedroom window.’

BRITTANY (age 4) had an ear ache and wanted a pain killer. She tried in vain to take the lid off the bottle. Seeing her frustration, her Mom explained it was a child-proof cap and she’d have to open it for her. Eyes wide with wonder, the little girl asked: ‘How does it know it’s me?’

SUSAN (age 4) was drinking juice when she got the hiccups. ‘Please don’t give me this juice again,’ she said, ‘It makes my teeth cough.’

DJ (age 4) stepped onto the bathroom scale and asked: ‘How much do I cost?’

CLINTON (age 5) was in his bedroom looking worried When his Mom asked what was troubling him, he replied, ‘I don’t know what’ll happen with this bed when I get married. How will my wife fit in it?’

MARC (age 4) was engrossed in a young couple that were hugging and kissing in a restaurant. Without taking his eyes off them, he asked his dad: ‘Why is he whispering in her mouth?’

TAMMY (age 4) was with her mother when they met an elderly, rather wrinkled woman her Mom knew. Tammy looked at her for a while and then asked, ‘Why doesn’t your skin fit your face?

JAMES (age 4) was listening to a Bible story. His dad read: ‘The man named Lot was warned to take his wife and flee out of the city but his wife looked back and was turned to salt.’ Concerned, James asked: ‘What happened to the flea?’

The Sermon I think this Mom will never forget.
This particular Sunday sermon… ‘ Dear Lord,’ the minister began, with arms extended toward heaven and a rapturous look on his upturned face. ‘Without you, we are but dust….’ He would have continued but at that moment my very obedient daughter who was listening leaned over to me and asked quite audibly in her shrill little four year old girl voice, ‘Mom, what is butt dust’?
