over this bridge.
There is about 12 meters of flood water there now and this seems likely to be
the maximum, (the 1999 flood peaked at 22 meters)
Meanwhile the Muster limps on, the 8000 people who were already at the site were still quite happy to be there, arrangements to transport the artists into the site are in hand and its hoped the road will reopen to allow more people to attend the final day Sunday, but for the first time in its 26 year history there will not be a new attendance record set this year.
THE ITALIAN GOLFER.
An 80-year old Italian man goes to the doctor for a check-up.
"How do you stay in such great physical condition?"
I'm Italian and I am a golfer," says the old guy," and that's why I'm in
such good shape." I'm up well before daylight and out golfing up and down
the fairways." "Have a glass of vino, and all is well."
"Well," says the doctor, "I'm sure that helps, but there's got to be more
to it. How old was your Dad when he died?"
"Who said my Dad's dead?"
The doctor is amazed. "You mean you're 80 years old and your Dad's still
alive. How old is he?"
He's 100 years old," says the old Italian golfer. "In fact he golfed with
me this morning, and then we went to the topless beach for a walk, that's
why he's still alive ... he's Italian and he's a golfer too."
Well," the doctor says, "that's great, but I'm sure there's more to it
than that. How about your Dad's Dad? How old was he when he died?"
"Who said my grandpa's dead?"
Stunned, the doctor asks, "You mean you're 80 years old and your
grandfather's still living! Incredible, how old is he?"
"He's 118 years old," says the old Italian golfer. the doctor is getting
frustrated at this point, "So, I guess he went golfing with you this
"No. Grandpa couldn't go this morning because he's getting married today."
At this point the doctor is close to losing it. "Getting married!! Why
would a 118 year-old guy want to get married?"
"Who said he wanted to?"
(I'll thank Sandy for that story.)
