    She needs to give it to me. If I had known I could have read it and given it to Scott next week. I might get a chance when we see you guys over the weekend.

    If it's in Tassie may as well stay there for Adrian and Stevie VW = out of order but may speed up overall progress. IT's not a case of how far it will travel but expediency and courtesy to keep others advised which hasn't happened without prodding.

    No time limit set on how long you had and Brad copped a flogging over his 4 weeks of having it, no one else has copped it, then no one has really given any consideration to others to inform they received & desptached it to next on list.

    I'm happy to relinquinsh my spot to you Grant.

    Just kidding.....:p

    Makes sense to squeeze Adrian in the list now, and then send to QLD as planned....:)

    Gee Bert loosen up, it's a book, does it really matter who, when, where? The fun is in the journey and the joy of receiving it to read and passing it on. We don't need the 'book Police' to track it's journey, it will get to it's next destination.

    Who cares if it is in Tassie then goes to QLD, our postage system is amazing in Australia and there would only be a day or two in it and the postage cost is the same Australia wide as it is under 500 grams in weight.

    Let the magical mystery journey continue.

    Well Lorraine, you got it and handled it the way you wanted to and disagree with my comments & I disagree with yours.

    It is the 2nd time I have offered Grant to receive it before me.

    Let others who have not received it question where it is at - that is what has been raised and I purely expressed my view of observations which evidently you have been offended by & disagree with.

    Think you should chill and let those in the queue who are wondering it's whereabouts ask and other non recipients respond accordingly. Am sure others care where it is = thus the question.

    As for the postage system comment - totally disagree as it's turned into a joke - as no one has posted despatched nor receipt dates except for last week or a coupe of weeks ago convince me otherwise.

    Magical mystery journey - please = not magical, mystery oh yes it is a mystery, a journey of unknown times.

    Peace, love, tranquility went out the window with having to be politically correct.

    As for the book police comment :rolleyes:o_O:(:confused::eek:. You put it out there having a dig & I'm just expressing my view.

    This book travels slower than a splitty with a 1200 motor, low oil and bad spark plugs! :D

    Unless you want a night here on the way to, or on the way home, or both, from Bus Stop Col, it won't happen.:(

    I haven't done a days "real paying work" since 15 December........so I've got to hook back in, & Easter is always a busy time for me.

    Australia Post took 7 days - posted 12th January 2016 - received 19th ...... and they reckon it's going to get slower.


    Now Col, you know how challenged I become when viewing pictures :confused:o_O

    Be fair, they did have to row across Bass Straight in a dingy.:rolleyes:



    Maybe organise some visits from Blue Nurses to read you a chapter each week :D

    Going to be slow to me . rural mail's horse is getting thin as they save on hay to pay for the CEO's bonuses for doing such a great job of winding the service down.
    Funding his super may mean the remnants are sold to india or china :(
