A Good Days Fishing Aussie Style

26 Jun

A bloke’s wife goes missing while holidaying on the West Australian coast while they were diving, he spends a terrible night wondering what could have happened to her.

Next morning there’s a knock at the door and he is confronted by a couple of policemen, the old Sarge and a younger Constable.The Sarge says…”Mate, we have some news for you, unfortunately some really bad news, but, some good news, and maybe some more good news”.

Well,” says the bloke…”I guess I’d better have the bad news first?”

The Sarge says…”I’m really sorry pal, but your wife is dead, young Bill here found her lying at about five fathoms in a little cleft in the reef, he got a line around her and we pulled her up, but she was dead.”

The bloke is naturally pretty distressed to hear of this and has a bit of a turn, but after a few minutes he pulls himself together and asks what the good news is.

The Sarge says…”Well when we got your wife up there were quite a few really good sized crays and a swag of nice crabs attached to her, so we’ve brought you your share.” He hands the bloke a sugar bag with a couple of nice crays and four or five crabs in it.

Geez thanks…They’re bloody beauties. I guess it’s an ill wind and all that…… So what’s the other possible good news?

Well”, the Sarge says…”if you fancy a quick trip, me and young Bill here get off duty at around 11 o’clock and we’re gonna shoot over there and pull her up again…

      Just an old joke Sue, was browsing through my old posts, trying to find something new but alas, nothing much of interest, I really do need to get out and find something worth writing about.

        You will….. How about another short story?.. You will be surprised at what comes from sitting down with pen and blank paper and just letting your thoughts flow… Try it.. even if its garbled at first.. Buy a New note pad and get scribbling! 🙂 then transfer later to PC.. 🙂 Thats how I write all my posts… 🙂 And poems come usually in the middle of a sleepless night! 🙂
