A Flathead -Aussie-Talk

A flathead once carried in his tuckerbag a grinder 
So hungry he sat at a fair dinkum binder
But he won't trust his eyes
When a fellow donkey arrives
To eat up all the remainder

Aussie-Talk:   A tuckerbag is a bag carrying food by a swagman (= hobo)
		      A binder is a solid meal
		      Fair dinklum means excellent
		      A flathead is a fool
		      A donkey is a stupid person

Why, Gert, you have a great sense of humor!! Really enjoyed this change-of-style write from you. And like Dr. Ram, I appreciate the footnotes. You not only speak English, German and Spanish, but Aussie as well! Very witty, my friend. Thanks for the laugh tonight! Love, Carolyn
