Week 3: 15-21 July

Yes, yes, I know. It is half way through August and I’m only now posting July. Let’s just say I was distracted a while.

So. For Week 3 I couldn’t resist another Banjo Patterson treat, so chose my favourite part of ‘The Man From Ironbark’ to chop up. Reassembled offerings were fewer this week from the coffee-worshippers at The Bean Barn. Perhaps the task was trickier, or not as exciting as last week’s segment ‘The Triantiwontigongolope’ (let’s face it, who wouldn’t prefer to head back to pre-adult when things were so much less complicated?). Maybe the particularly bleak Ballarat winter made it simply too cold to venture out. If you haven’t had the pleasure of hearing the full poem read by someone who really knows how to deliver their lines, then put it at the top of your must-do list. Preferably they’ll also be dressed the part, and have a full beard, crazy eyes and have a flair for wild gesticulation…

Congratulations to Catherine for her speedy and correct entry. Get thee to the BB for your free coffee and good luck in the prize draw! Thanks to other hopefuls Hayley, Matt and Georgie for your submissions, but you’ll have to be quicker than that to win.
