They Probably Should of Checked the Pubs First …..

An old bloke by the name of Douglas Pyne went missing early Saturday morning , leaving the caravan park he lived in Howard Springs ( about 40 km from Darwin ) and announcing to everyone around that he was planning to walk to Palmerston. This is where I must add this old guy is actually 95 yrs old , Palmerston is a fair hike from Howard springs , and its between 25 and 30 degrees Celsius with no shade in that area … so this did concern locals who reported him missing … I’m not sure why , he had just told them where he was going …. but anyway after a day long search he turned up at the Wisdom bar and nightclub which is right in the heart of Darwin ( he obviously was very ambitious or someone has given him a lift as he well and truly bypassed Palmerston !). Another patron spotted him having a beer with his walking frame parked safely next to him and alerted police that he was safe and well. Cant a man go for a beer in peace ???? !!

  2. I quit drinking almost 11 years ago but used to go to pub everyday. Loved the liquor, playing darts and dominoes and the secret poker games in the back room.

    • I miss the pub too ! I’m now pregnant and forced to abstain for a while ๐Ÿ˜‰ My hat is off to anyone that can keep it up , its not easy !! ( I also wish they played dominoes at the pub where I come from ! )
