Gift wrapper, oil leak catcher, councillor farewells print
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Thank you Gympie Times print edition
IN THE early days, you were my alarm clock. Every morning the thud of you landing on our driveway used to wake me up.
MORE GYMPIE NEWS:
You were always my wrapping paper for rubbish until single use plastic bags were invented.
Then you were my fish and chip wrapper until the authorities made the fisho use white paper.
You were always there on the table at smoko time. Your headline, for all to see, was often the conversation starter.
Later you were great for putting under my car to catch oil leaks. Saturdays was best because it was thicker.
Over the years your scrunched up pages were the way I started the fire in our wood heater. I suppose they’ll soon ban matches anyway.
And all through this time your pictures or stories about my family were cut out and put in to the family album. Now I will have to print off these pictures, and as usual I’ll be out of printer ink.
But all things must pass.
Thank you and goodbye, I will miss you.
Bob Fredman, Gympie Regional councillor
