le Canard


I got an invitation to our local art society's end of year "soiree"; nothing more than an over-priced Christmas Party for posers, bloody wankers!

Eh bien, 'le canard' semble plus élégant dans français, mais oui?


Joyeux Noël à tous! (get pissed! )

You managed to capture a whole bunch of birds that I've never seen nor heard of ... shame on me! Anyways, glad you were able to bring home such a superbly shot collection of Aussie birds. As you seem to like Oz so much, why not consider migration? You have the yacht, be sure to sail in undetected by border security else you'll wind up as an illegal immigrant (boat person) in border detention on Naru - you could claim refugee status from Brexit and we may let you in!
