hands across the water
This one came from Henry Blowfly, who lives in the Land Down Under and comments frequently on my blog:
Great blog, one of my regular reads, and the beach at Scarborough, Western Australia now has a regular "Georgia Half Rubber" game during the summer months, it started with me and a few few ol' fart mates, then a couple of younguns joined in, then a couple of the young "dolly birds" had a go, (which adds a whole new dimension to the game), and the ol' farts now sit back and mind the beer, and enjoy the view:-)
Tell me that a blog can't be a influence on other people. I am humbled by the fact that I may have played a small role in exporting a beach game invented on Tybee Island, Georgia, halfway around the world to Australia. THAT is true cultural exchange, because very few people in the USA ever heard of half-rubber.
And Henry says he's going to send me some Vegemite as a gesture of gratitude. That kind of thing makes this Cracker boy proud.
