Concentrated Bullsheet HI There out in Subaru Club land hope you are doing well. There are six trips on the trip board, of varying types and grades, lets see if we can fill them all. The volunteer trips in the lower Flinders will be in the next magazine with luck and I have had an email today from our volunteer co-ordinator asking if we are interested in -quote “in the Innes National park to do some track maintenance… if your groups is interested. The park would like to engage some volunteers with 4WD experience and chainsaw trained… and of course I thought in you guys!” I am very interested and will reply in the positive and find out the finer details, if accommodation is on offer, dates etc. so watch this space. Just look to the right and you will see that Glenn Millis has put his head on the line...literally! Glenn is shaving his head raising funds for the Leukaemia Foundation, please dig deep and support Glenn for this great cause. Life is busy in the Shinks house, Claire fell off her Birthday Scooter and broke her arm, there are three lots of home work to help the kids with, I am finishing off my Business Diploma, Theresa is busy keeping us fed, clean and ready for school and work each day after getting home from work herself. If it was not for weekends I am sure we would both be run into the ground. Please note that the April meeting has moved to the last Friday of March as the first Friday of April is good Friday. Parking will be tight as there is an event in the hall that night. Pages 14 and 15 have pictures for the kids to colour in, I hope they enjoy it. Anyway see you around the traps, Cheers Shinksy 2


I

I'm going to be brave and shave. I have registered for the World’s greatest shave for a cure and will be shaving my head on March 16th. This incredibly worthwhile cause has raised over $120 million dollars since 1998. This year the foundation has a goal of raising $15,795,000 dollars. I have set a goal of raising $1000.00, with the support of your contributions I am sure we can smash these figures. Please sponsor me. You can give me your sponsorship contribution at the March Subaru Club General Meeting or you can use your credit card and sponsor me online. Find my Profile Page at : http:my.leukaemiafoundation.org.au/glennm Any and all donations over $2 will receive a tax deductible receipt. Why am I doing this? - Blood cancer research is expensive but vital. The money you give will help the Leukaemia Foundation fund important research into leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and other blood disorders. - Every 46 minutes someone in Australia gets the news they have blood cancer. The money you give will also support them from diagnosis, during their treatment and beyond. All the Leukaemia Foundation's services are free. Let's keep them that way. Thank you in advance for your support. Cheers

JUST JOKES After being married for thirty years, a wife asked her husband to describe her. He looked at her for a while ... Then said, "You're A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K." She asks ... "What does that mean?" He said, "Adorable, Beautiful, Cute, Delightful, Elegant, Foxy, Gorgeous, Hot. She smiled happily and said ... "Oh, that's so lovely ... What about I, J, K?" He said, "I'm Just Kidding!" The swelling in his eye is going down and the doctor is fairly optimistic that he will be able to use his jaw eventually. Two older ladies were discussing their husbands over tea. "I do wish that my George would stop biting his nails. He makes me terribly nervous." "My Herbert used to do the same thing," the older woman replied. "But I broke him of the habit." "How?" "I hid his teeth." BEING THANKFUL The Rabbi said to a precocious six-year-old boy, "So your mother says your prayers for you each night? That's very commendable. What does she say?" The little boy replied, "She says, 'Thank God he's in bed!' " Holdup man: "Stick 'em up or else." Victim: "Or else what?" Holdup man: "Don't confuse me - this is my first job." A frog goes into a bank and approaches the teller. He can see from her nametag that her name is Patricia Whack. "Miss Whack, I'd like to get a $30,000 loan to take a holiday." Patty looks at the frog in disbelief and asks his name. The frog says his name is Kermit Jagger, his dad is Mick Jagger, and that it's okay, he knows the bank manager. Patty explains that he will need to secure the loan with some collateral. The frog says, "Sure. I have this," and produces a tiny porcelain elephant, about an inch tall, bright pink and perfectly formed. Very confused, Patty explains that she'll have to consult with the bank manager and disappears into a back office. She finds the manager and says, "There's a frog called Kermit Jagger out there who claims to know you and wants to borrow $30,000, and he wants to use this as collateral." She holds up the tiny pink elephant. "I mean, what in the world is this?" The bank manager looks back at her and says. "It's a knickknack, Patty Whack. Give the frog a loan, His old man's a Rolling Stone." Q: Which day is stronger, Sunday or Monday? A: Sunday. Monday is a weekday. Q: What does an envelope say when you lick it? A: Nothing. It just shuts up. Q: What did the teddy bear say when he was offered dessert? A: No thanks, I'm stuffed! Q: Where did the king keep his armies? A: Up his sleevies.
