I got a kick out of you …

Lorraine Lambert wrote ” We never landed one of those wealthy boys from Double Bay or Vaucluse, so we bade our time and saved our dough, then took off on a world cruise.”

Well, from one of those boys, Lorraine, let me say there may have been one or two of us who wouldn’t have minded been landed.

The beach’s north point features a fifty-foot high cliff of black granite boulders, above them a track leading down to a small wooded valley behind the dunes.

CHORUS

I says the Rock Island Line is a mighty good road.

I says the Rock Island Line is the road to ride.

I says the Rock Island Line is a mighty good road.

If you want to ride, you gotta ride it like you’re flyin’.

Buy your ticket at the statlon on on the Rock Island Line.

I. Well, Jesus died to save me in all of my sin. Well-a, glory to God, we gain’ to meet Him again.

2. Well, the train left Memphis at half pas’ nine.

3. Well, it made it back to Little Rock at eight forty-nine.

Well, Jesus died to save me in all of my sin. Well-a, glory to God, we gain’ to meet Him again.

byron bay’s joke of the week

The council is installing a set of traffic lights in Byron’s main street.

The locals are aghast at the prospect.

But no worries, says the mayor – all the lights will stay green.

… How we laughed.
