    Re: Barkers Cafe opens at Whitten Oval

    Went past the Barkers cafe on my way in on Saturday. Unfortunately the ATM was at of action so I couldn't get any food but next time I go to WO will try it if I have coins and noted on me. The prices looked decent there as well.

    Fantastic. Had some issues with the last cafe. So that's the cafe sorted and the cheersquad. Peter is really getting things in order.

    Right you are.
    I took the old man to the museum and to watch training over some banana bread last year. Some bloke with tattoos was going off at the junior staff, who were just kids and not very happy. The vibe wasn't good.

    That ATM works properly about as often as Liam Jones! They really need to do something about it.

    I wonder if Gordon & Montgomery made a profit out of the sale. Which is absolutely fine, but interesting.

    It's a funny figure-250 106. Why not 250 000 or 255 000?

    Why would that be? Add on for stock at hand maybe?
    AFLW Premiers 2018




    After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
    Finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
    And pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
    Police officer's station. So we got in the red vw microbus with the
    Shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
    Police officer's station.

    Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
    The police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
    Being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
    We didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
    And told us never to be seen driving garbage around the vicinity again,
    Which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
    There was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
    Both immediately arrested. Handcuffed. And I said "Obie, I don't think I
    Can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on. " He said, "Shut up, kid.
    Get in the back of the patrol car. "

    It may simply be what it was valued at independently.

    Barkers seems to be a meeting place now whereas before it was just a footy cafe.
