Sister Magdalina and the Mother Superior has sent me an email asking where you live, I told her I didn't know but she does not believe me.
They are after you for what you did to the Nuns at John Artons Christmas Party.
So be very careful, look over your shoulder. They are Not happy with Cappy.
Cheers Brian

Not me cappy, I was known as crappy hated everyone. Just got my free railway pass for my coming birthday, so am thinking of going to Kalgoorlie to ruminate among other things. Not many nuns up there though all creatures of the night (and day) will pass your regards to any emus I may see. Cheers John S PS May look in on Brians old flames JS

Only one long trip a year. All local trains and buses are free if have a pension card. Or/and believe unemployed, I think. Pay less rates and get rebates on certain bills. Even some of the shops give rebates for pensioners. However a case of beer is still the same price. However if a private pensioner don't think some of the perks apply. However getting back to my favourite hate .. pollys they get a gold card re travel plus big pension rights and other perks. Then they turn round and say the people will have to cut back. 10 years in parliament and one is set up for life. Cheers John S

#8- Some years ago I travelled by train from Fremantle to Melbourne to rejoin a Shaw Swivel boat. (we'd gone ashore to bury a shipmate who died swimming in Fremantle harbour). During the rail journey, which took three days, we stopped in Kalgoorlie . There was a ramshackle building near the railway line ( nothing like Kongs modern establishment on Hay St) which catered for those in need of 'relaxation'. Walking past I noticed a sign above the door which read (with true Aussie subtlety)'' welcome to our establishment where the customer always comes first''
ps don't try looking in Bradshaws Guide- it's gone.

In NSW as a pensioner we get a Yearly pass at a discount rate for long distance travel,its a Voucher issued by the Dept of Human Resources,actually two a Year!

On local Bus,Train ,Ferry Services it is a rate of $2,50 cents a day for wherever within the Metro Area no matter how many utilities are used,and distance travelled!
And the Metro Area is quite vast.

There is now an Opal Card for Pensioners here as well,which both myself and my Wife have its really good,saves a lot of time wating to buy a Ticket! Just Tap on and Tap off,it works well as said the Max charge that is deducted is only $2.50 a day!

As said in another post here also get many perks ;ole free Car Rego,Water at discount rates,these are just a few!

Oh how great to be a Pensioner!
Free and easy life!

#9...John used to have cribs there 25 years ago, we have come a long way since then only takes 2 and a half days now on the Indian Pacific. Usually on a stop at Kalgoorlie have an organised tour to the big gold mine or the brothel, while the train takes on stores. JS
