This Is Not The Bottle I Thought It Was

…beach walking at Aramoana…had to “tsk” when I sighted a discarded wine bottle at the high water mark on the harbour edge of the spit…

…was pleasantly surprised to find this…IMG_7032 …McGavins brewery was est.1882 (as Union brewery) and fizzled out after a merger with other local brewers in 1923…IMG_7033

… so this bottle has been sitting in the sand dune waiting to be eroded onto the beach….or been floating around (and around and around) for┬ásome considerable time….

…hey!…dispose of your festive empties responsibly folks…

…seasons felicitations one and all.

A Figment Of Your Anticipation

…the publics expectation of post-xmas sales coincided with the end of my nicotine patches this festive season just past…Scan 56

 

…by coincidence the execution of this illustration, depicting the prevailing temperament towards non-regular customers asking for not advertised or offered-in-any-way-shape-or-form discounts marks not only 6 months without nicotine in my system, but ┬áthe first day of my first sale….

…. alll sale goods going on Trade Me (E-bays kiwi cousin) so don’t ask in store unless you want a reaction like the above.
