Family Matters

MOTHER Bunyip took a nasty turn the other day and is in the doctors' care. She should be back home in a day or two, but is neither happy nor comfortable in the meantime. Apologies for the trickle of posts, but family matters have left little time for pottering about at the keyboard. Back to normal soonish with a bit of luck.

    Much as any respite for the Gillard government and their partners-in-grime The Greens is to be abhorred, family comes first.

    A swift recovery to Ma B., and we'll see you back soon.

  5. Professor,I hope your mother is soon well again because to me, mothers are the salt of the earth, to be treasured whilst they are still with us.
    On another tack, I must say I am fascinated by your love life and your (seemingly) ability to soldier on, taking on the chin what life dishes out to your good self.
    More strength to your drinking arm, I say.

  6. Anonymous, I suspect he deserves it. He is, I think, too wild and uncontrollable. A challenge, and women love a challenge, but a bit of a bad boy.
    ? professor?

  7. Professor, as stated above Family always comes first and as one, among many, who have pleasure of reading your work my best wishes for your mother's recovery.

  8. I echo the above.
    I add that young Bunyips are notoriously impish animals, keeping their mothers on edge for years: the wheel turns, and then the offspring care for their parents.

  12. Hope Mother Bunyip is quickly back on her feet and throwing her weight around at the Billabong before you know it.

  16. Best wishes, prayers and blessings for your mom's speedy and complete recovery, Professor.

    You are a good and dutiful Bunyip to be at her side. And don't worry about us, we can root around your archives for a fix of the Bunyip prose when the shakes and the cold sweat hit. All the best, friend.

  18. Bunyip, please come back, and eviscerate Jessica Irvine's spectacularly glib fatuities in today's silly about a "fat tax". Please.
