... with a pithy platitude written on the back. I had a girlfriend who used to collect the tickets for those one-liners.

Heck, I'm old enough to remember the cardboard tickets...

While puffing on a durry. I always loved the smell of the Red Hen when the door was open for some reason.

Besser blocks, angle iron, fire.

Sunday afternoon was burn off day. The old man would have butchered a chook in the morning, bled it and plucked* it ready for dinner Sunday night. While Mum was prepping the chook we'd get the incinerator loaded and when tea was finished the scrap went in on top as the final piece of the flaming puzzle and up she'd go. The smell of several days of household waste bellowing into the sky. Mum never washed on Sundays. :lol:
