A young koala's beach adventure

December 24th 2009
Merry Christmas...oops

Nothing is as it seems It's that time of year again and we couldn't help passing on this story and funny photo that's spreading around the world on email.

We haven't been able to track down just where this came from except via an old friend in Canberra but the attached story reads:

"Good news is that I truly out did myself this year with my Christmas decorations.
The bad news is that I had to take him down after 2 days.

I had more people come screaming up to my house than ever.

Great stories.

But two things made me take it down.

First, the cops advised me that it would cause traffic accidents as they almost wrecked when they drove by.

Second, a 55 year old lady grabbed the 75 pound ladder almost killed herself putting it against my house and didn't realize it was fake until she climbed to the top (she was not happy).

By the way, she was one of many people who attempted to do that.

My yard couldn't take it either.

I have more than a few tire tracks where people literally drove up my yard."


Take it easy - but take it!

Best wishes from

Tonia In reply to The ongoing price of Nelly Bay Harbour
It's 14 years since I last visited Maggy. I am shocked by Nelly Bay and saddened. It is insensitive, ugly and juxtaposed to the essence of Maggy. I embrace progress in general, but this is poorly conceived and executed. Shame.
