News headlines

(Note: A rare guest entry from an even rarer blogger. Thomas.)

A note from Mr Rabbit: My esteemed friend Thomas will give his account of our late trip to Newcastle; and we know it will be both thorough and entertaining. I, being more concerned with the minutiae of life, submit this guest entry, “Newcastle News Headlines”. For “Newcastle”, you could substitute any of our fine regional centres or larger country towns.

    I am sure Jim Belshaw’s pieces for the Armidale Express are not quite in this vein. 😉
