Warning To All My Brethren And Sistren In Logistics And Retail

…unlike the first robin of spring but similar to the ground hog on ground hog day….

…the first pallet of Xmas crap stock arrived in the warehouse last night…

…it’s coming boys and girls….

…earlier every year, I swear…

…brace yourselves….

…(…also note inverted “caution” symbols…it’s not even October and your shit is already upside down!….)….

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.
