Blowin’ in the wind.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, as Amanda Johnson’s photo of the goal posts at the Mahurangi rugby grounds demonstrates. Yes, it was a pretty windy day.

Kennel for Sale.
A Paparoa man made a spirited sales pitch to his neighbours on Facebook this month. It read “this kennel was a waste of my money. It’s not water proof and its full of p*ss and sh*t. I’ve tried cleaning it, but it’s crap. Might be good for parts or a goat.” He was willing to part with the kennel for the mere cost of a Whitakers peanut butter chocolate bar. There were no takers, but somebody did offer him the chokkie bar to cheer him up.
