Deja all over again.

March 18, 2019

Can’t reveal any details of tonight’s closed door meeting of Unley Council members, except to say that Grumpy found himself in a police-box predicament, journeying at one time back to the turn of the century.

Missed your company, Doctor!


“Pocket park” push in Unley?

March 18, 2019

Can’t give anything other than a broad hint at  the moment, but Grumpy’s long, long obsession with the creation of oases at the end of some of our city’s many cul-de-sacs (that’s French posh for “dead=ends”) could receive some good news in the not-too -distant future.

That should keep you happy, Denise.

Fingers crossed.

Cricket cheats back at the crease…

March 17, 2019

I’m more than probably batting alone, but I can’t help feeling that those bally brazen ball-tamperers should have been banned for life, not allowed to return in a blaze of publicity as if they were heroes.

But then, I suppose one shouldn’t knock participants in Australia’s religion…

Win at all costs!

Poll position.

March 17, 2019

Second-highest weekly viewership of “Grumpy” since way back in mid November.

My thanks.

Eels slither home.

My second-favourite League team, the lads from Paramatta off to a great season start, downing the Penrith Panthers comprehensively.

Bring back League to South Australia. We need some REAL football!!!


Unley Council budget.

March 15, 2019

Sorry, but Grumpy can’t give even a hint about  a couple of controversial issues destined to arise during imminently forthcoming debate on the corporation’s $40million or so budget for the next financial year.

Unfortunately Monday’s  March 18 Council gab-fest has to be behind closed doors, and any revelation about any subject would see any perpetrator cast into the outer darkness.

But (patiently) watch this space.


South Island slaughter

March 15, 2019

My very earliest years were spent in Southern England’s south coast town of Christchurch, a link that saw us receive  a warm welcome from Local Government officials of New Zealand’s namesake when we explored South Island many moons ago..

Like everyone else in Australia our hearts go out to those victims and their families of today’s horrendous, senseless  slaughter.
