Unbelievable! Fifty one blog posts since the inaugural on the 4th of November, 2015! Amazing! Thank you so much everyone for your awesome stories etc. Without you none of this would have happened.
Now, down to the nitty gritty somewhat. It is a bit long winded, so, please, do take the time to read everything.
As of 10am, Monday the 1st of February, I will be in residence once more at the Miling Hotel, room 13.
Fingers crossed, as of Thursday the 11th of February, I will be visiting hotels and clubs throughout the surrounding shires to continue collecting tales of ghosts, bushrangers, strange animals, characters, lost treasures, bush yarns and contemporary legends plus folklore and folklife around the local area. The idea at the moment is to be at any given pub, prior notice of roughly a fortnight will be given of where, and my hope is to have a yarn to locals from about 6pm onward, and learn as much as I can from them about things specific to their local area.
This is the really IMPORTANT bit.
Everyone I meet is treated exactly the same and like anyone else. In no way do I make any dispensation for people’s religion, skin colour, gender, sexual orientation, cultural background, community standing or opinion regarding the same. If you believe that an issue mentioned above makes you more important or special than any other, either keep it to yourself, or give me a very wide berth, as you will be offended when I tell you you are no more important than the next bloke, and a lot better off than so many more people you have over looked in your ignorance.
Something else to remember, with each and every person I meet, the highest degree of discretion when it comes to the identity of the person telling me their yarn is adhered to, as is withholding the names of those mentioned within yarns. Include times and places in this.
So, with that out of the way, I can’t wait to get back into the swing of things once more, and get together enough tales to start seriously editing, and sending off to a publisher in the hope that I can get local folklore bolted to the page, and saved from being for ever lost to time.
Cheers to all, and thank you once again. There is a picture of ‘Punch’ above, and he needs clicking on.
