Normal Programming Resumed

So, how was everyones Easter?

We're back from camping in the Mulwala National Park, and we had a good time.

There were puppehs:








Good Friends:




A Temporary Home:



Nature putting on a show:








The Annual Camping Dress-up Fest:

Jimi as Satan:



Me as a cowgirl/sherrif:



Jeremy was obviously very impressed with whatever I'd just said:




And, just because this makes me laugh, a photo I call The Unstoppable Spread of Left Wing Media Bias':

Puppehs!

Keri said...

So much puppehs.

There was Jimi, the one eyed Essendon supporter (Literally), Koda the Staffie and Rada the naughty, naughty Lab.

Jayne said...

LOL
Looks like the weather behaved beautifully for you all and it was a great spot :)

Jimbo said...

It would appear that though Kedgy had a nice time, J may have felt that the good common folk of Yarrawonga having the weekend off was a little rich.
Don’t get him wrong - he's not suggesting that workers should lose their holidays, but he's certainly not suggesting that the courts remain open on Good Friday, denying a young barista and his chums a weekend on the banks of the river is he?
Only that the common unwashed be forced to work in the supermarkets serving him and his dogs "steak".
I say let them eat Pal and get an engle and buy your meat in Melbourne before you head the the river.

Jimbo said...

Ok I'm just wondering why exactly the bloke in the river next to J is wearing an athletic brazier?

Keri said...

Jimbo - First, it's kedgie. And they were my chums, none of whom are exactly upper class. Jeremy doesn't get public holidays - certainly doesn't get paid for them, and wouldn't have had an issue whether he got the day off this or next weekend.

(For the record, when we found out the supermarket was closed, I did suggest that the problem would be that the lowest paid and casual workers would be the ones forced to work because of a lack of job security, to which he responded with his rotating four weekend idea)

Also, we had steak. Two kinds of steak. It was just an example. And we don't have any dogs. They were my mates dogs.

Seriously, dude. If you're going to come here talking smack about my partner, could you at least get some of you facts right? Differing views are fine, but splattering insults at the wall hoping something sticks is just silly.

Keri said...

Jeremy took the photo. He's not in the river. And my mate was mucking about. One of the guys dressed as a lingerie model for the dress-up night we'd had the night before.

Keri said...

Jayne - the weather was wonderful. We had one day where it rained for about half-an-hour, and we had a 3x3 food marquee you can enclose, so apart from me running around closing everyones tents up, it was no hassle.

Jimbo said...

Thanks for clearing all that up Keri. Not sure I'd be wearing a bra the next day, but hey...

I suppose its Jeremy's rant, and you're right to defend him, I suppose. You lied for him yesterday, so why wouldn't you tell the truth for him today.

If you already had steak, then why the need for the rant, unless of course its to poar scorne on the workers? Or the steak was for the K9s, or simply not up to his high standards?
And while he may have been on AL or unpaid leave, it takes zero away from the fact that he's not asking the courts or Owen Dixon chambers to be open at Easter.. sorry ... "Autumn Break" is he?
He just wants the good workers of Yarrawonga to serve him, the barista, at his beckon call. For what reason was he thinking that, when dixyland and the courts, all of Melbourne CBD and even the AFL were closed for the day, that the good yeofolk of Yawwawonga would be sitting in their supermarket waiting for the tingle of his little bell?

Keri said...

"I suppose its Jeremy's rant, and you're right to defend him, I suppose. You lied for him yesterday, so why wouldn't you tell the truth for him today."I haven't defended his rant, Jimbo. At any stage. And as I have already explained, I made an error, which I swiftly admitted to as soon as it was pointed out. And exactly what am I lying about today?

We had the steak, and if you have a look at my response, we did need Ice and a few other things. Big deal. We simply went to the supermarket in Mulwala. It was the inspiration for a post on the fact that one person has an opinion about religious public holidays.

But of course, you and the other Anonymous BeckFriends decide to use it to make yet another facile attack.

Do me a favour, save me deleting your next trolling effort and either fuck off or take MY posts on their merits. If you've got an issue with Jeremy's posts, or my comments on Jeremy's posts, go troll over there.

Debate, arguments and dissenting views are more than welcome here, and as you're new, I won't delete your current efforts. But just so you know, the comments policy round these parts is that I've got the final say, and I reserve the right to delete what I like. Feel free to take on my ACTUAL views, but if you've got nothing else to say apart from bullshit attacks on my partner, it'll be deleted.

cosmicjester said...

you and jeremy's blog sure attract the nutters (or nutter playing multiple sockpuppets)

i have that same shirt as jeremy, the "help me jesus, save me from your followers" one

Keri said...

My mate A (the one in the fetching bra) is equally God-fearing and was very impressed.

Bron said...

Ah, I was wondering what Jeremy's shirt said. Cool!

Fuck off, Jimbo. You're so pathetic.

cosmicjester said...

and Keri

Dogs > Cats

Ah Jimbo's profile has six views and was only created this month, how curious. How many sockpuppets does becky have? must be hard keeping up with all of them

Jimbo said...

Three unleashed dogs, a green and a fire in a national park?

And he wanted steak.

Jimbo said...

Cosmicjerker 5 of those views were you.

Keri said...

CJ - I think dogs and cats both have their merits.

And I don't think Jimbo is a Beck sockpuppet, but I give up being surprised by the intertubes.

Jimbo - "Three unleashed dogs, a green and a fire in a national park?

And he wanted steak."
The fire is neither against the regs set down by the good folks who run the National Parks in NSW (Where we were camping), nor did the ranger we chatted to about it last year have an issue, and nor did the boys in blue who swang past on their way to another campsite have an issue with either that or the dogs.

But of course, why should that stop BeckFriends?

And he had - for the last time - steak.

Andy B said...

What sort of steak?

Steak from the lowly workers who refused to work on a religious-bestowed public holiday?

If so, I approve.

Keri said...

Andy - Nah, we bought it in Melbourne.

Another opportunity missed.

Jimbo said...

http://www.yarrawongamulwala.com.au/riverbeaches.html

No leads, and that fire is not in a trench and definately more than 1m sq

Keri said...

Jimbo, you'll notice that the ruling is "On leads or under control", which they clearly were. Besides which - and this is the important bit - if neither the police who passed our campsite TWICE or the rangers we speak to every year have an issue with it, why the fuck do you lot?

The fire was not more than one metre square, and was on a cleared area, and had been dug in more than 30 centimetres to start with.

But, hey! Why would that matter to BeckFriends? Why let the truth get in the way of a good smear?

Jeremy said...

I honestly don't know why you're playing with the idiot.

Jimbo, you're boring. (And stupid, but that's not your most heinous sin as a blog commenter.)

Here's hoping Keri bans you and you can stop wasting our time with your laughable attempts at a spiteful "gotcha".

Jimbo said...

Fffuuuucccckkkk!!!!
Don't the lefties call for the book burning once their little world is called into question?
Jeremy. Nice shining armour mate, but seriously if you think its a waste of time then why mount your steed and gallop over here to protect your wench so fervently. She's doin ok for he self and I suppose since she threatens it right at the top of the blog, she's ready willing and able to ban whom ever she likes.

The fact is you went to a stste park (Keri actually thought it a National park) with DOGS. Clearly thinking that you're better than the rest of the population and don't have to adhere to the rules. Everyone knows that's a no no and you're a GREEN so you should have been hopping mad that they took dogs. But since they are your friends, or hers as it may be, and there's a risk of no horizontal if you rock the boat, you whimped it. But you pouted all weekend by the look of it. I guess that's why you took out your frustrations on the good lazy plebs at the supermarket for not being there to serve you.
Next time NO DOGS.

Keri said...

Jimbo, first thing - call me a wench or anything like it again and you'll be banned. Simple.

Yes, it's a State Park rather than a National Park. Funnily enough, your mate Beck also arsed that up.

And if it was a state park, then there ISN'T A RULE AGAINST DOGS. The only proviso is that the dog is leashed or under control. Which, as you can see from the photos, they were, at all times.

Jeremy said...

I really don't know why you're bothering. Jimbo's a TROLL. His only desire here is to be unpleasant and annoying. Nothing he's said makes any sense on even a cursory look (they weren't our dogs; I've never said anything about dogs; he's got no evidence that the dogs weren't under the control required... I've never said anything against camp fires, I've in fact just two posts ago made clear that I'm not an environmentalist, that I vote for the Greens as a progressive party, not as an environmentalist one... the steak line was a throwaway in a post about RELIGIOUS HOLIDAYS... but why go on?

Jimbo's not here for a debate, he's a troll here purely to make the place unpleasant and drive away commenters who've actually got something interesting to say.

The only consolation is that he's wasting his own time, too.

Keri said...

I believe I've made my comments policy clear. I've got final say. I'll use it when I see fit.

cosmicjester said...

"Everyone knows that's a no no and you're a GREEN so you should have been hopping mad that they took dogs."

greens are meant to hate dogs, what you smoking Jimbo?

havent met many greens in real life have you?

Jimbo said...

Keri. Again I was not calling you a wench, I was having a go at Jeremy for treating you as one. Riding in on his.....oh bugger it why bother. Sorry if you were offended, but it was not my intention to offend you and clearly anything i say will offend Jeremy so I give up.

When you got in the car Keri you thought you were heading off to a NATIONAL park. In fact untill this morning you thought you had returned from a NATIONAL park.
Clearly you and your friends were not interested in following the rules against dogs in a NATIONAL park when you left Melbourne. Ans now, as yesterday, you are scrambling for excuses for that behaviour.
Granted, as it turns out you're not in breach, (though we only have your word that they were under control at all times. You may have deleted the pics of the stafie chowing down on a koala and the one eyed mutt rag dolling a blue tongue)but when you left home your intention was to visit what you thought was a NATIONAL park, with dogs. In fact you thought you'd got away with it till it was pointed out that its a state park.
And i don't know Beck so he's not my mate.

Jeremy.
No you've not said anything about dogs. That's the point.
You're a green and an officer of the courts. You were in what you thought was a NATIONAL park. With people who had dogs. AND YOU SAID NOTHING.
WHY?

cosmicjester said...

well thats it, Jimbo has caught you breaking hypothetical law. Hang your heads in shame and report to imaginary prison for 15 to 20

Leftists hypothetically pwned

Jimbo said...

Cosmicjerker
Its not hypothetical. Their intention was to break the law. Its like you believing that the speed limit is 50 and deliberately doing 100 without regard to the safety of anyone else or for the law. Ok so the limit is in fact 100, but that doesn't change what your attitude was does it?

And as i said, we only have Keri and Jeremy's word that the animals were under control.
Now keri uses the line

"The only proviso is that the dog is leashed or under control. Which, as you can see from the photos, they were, at all times."

But the photos don't show the dogs leashed at all and they don't show the dogs "at all times" either do they?

So there could be dead koalas, numbats and goannas littering the state park and Keri aint showin' those photos here now is she?

Keri said...

"Their intention was to break the law."Uh, no. Considering AS I'VE ALREADY SAID, we've previously spoken to both the rangers of the park we were in and see the police every year we are there, my belief was that what we were doing was fine. And guess what? IT IS! Since we confirmed it with the people in charge, what the fuck else have you got to complain about?

"So there could be dead koalas, numbats and goannas littering the state park and Keri aint showin' those photos here now is she?"No, that would be because they don't exist. Feel free to come round for a slide-show, though, Jimbo.

Jeremy said...

Thanks for your good-natured interest in our weekend though, Jimbo.

John Eldridge said...

Jimbo.

Get a job, man.

adrian said...

...I've in fact just two posts ago made clear that I'm not an environmentalist, that I vote for the Greens as a progressive party, not as an environmentalist one.Come on, Jeremy, that's patently weak, you can do better than that. Just admit it-you're not responsible for your missus mates' dogs. Easy.

Just out of interest, what happened to the dogs when everyone retired? Where they tied up or left sleeping by the fire, re image?

Jimbo said...

If they were left by a fire then that woule be 2 offences. But since Keri SAYS that the cops said it was ok then its ok.
So she SAYS.
And why would she lie.

Keri said...

Adrian - They slept in their respective owners tents. Koda, who is shown asleep by the fire was obviously asleep there whilst we were up, or we wouldn't have been able to photograph him, would we?

Keri said...

Husky Jim/Jimbo - I gave you the benefit of the doubt here because you hadn't actually crossed any lines, and then you set up a smear site (And setting up a site named after the dog of a mate of mine? Poor Jimi) filled with lies and link to it.

As a result, your comments are no longer welcome here.

Captain Suburbia said...

Oooh, looks like fun. I normally spend holidays/long weekends etc lazing in slightly more luxurious lodgings (caravan) in Bundalong, just down the river. Couldn't make it this year as I've been frantically organising a wedding.

If you need emergency supplies on public holidays, give the Bundalong General Store a go. They're on the Murray Valley Highway, just across from the pub in the 90 zone (if you didn't already know). Even on Good Friday, as they'll be turning out an insane amount of Fish & Chips.

Lovely part of the world, isn't it!

Keri said...

Captain Suburbia - There were supermarkets open in Mulwala, so it was fine. Thanks for the tip, though.

It's a lovely part of the world. If you can overlook the dust.
