Default ?????????????

I was going to send some in an envelope, but the water gummed it closed before I could get it in the letter.

This is an odd post, perhaps you could elaborate. I know that Nth Canterbury is having it's worst drought in many years, with Sheep F***** (Farmers, oops!) have to pay hundreds a week for stock feed, a situation depressingly common in Aust, but virtually unheard of in NZ. Is the Nth Is also having a dry spell?

Not as bad as the South Tony, I was just going a bit insane from having to drink beer instead of water, have just ordered another tanker in ($NZ240) for 14,000 litres. This is my second this summer, I know it is worse in Oz, pit about your envelope

But Bob he is talking about New Zealand Beer!!!!

I suggest however that you ask Mackay or Rockhampton in Queensland for some as they seem to have plenty at the moment.

Why would any place in Qld have New Zealand beer?? Besides, hadn't we better watch ol' Rookie drink his 14,000 litres first? He might not want any more after that...

Hmmmm ... so raining buckets now is it? And I was just going to offer sending over our snow that has started happening again the last few days. Guess we'll have to keep the darned snow here then. So much for win/win eh?
