We’re a Centenarian

As poor old Baroness Thatcher might say – were she 100 and had the Tory party not bribed her medical advisors to gravely inform her that she was no longer capable of speaking in public.

Yes! I note, in passing, that I’ve just racked up my posting century here on the Northern Territory’s most celebrated blog. That is, if you don’t count the words of infinite wisdom lost forever in the Great Troppo Crash of 2003.

I wonder, is there a telegram? In fact, do centenarians still get telegrams? Is it more a Royal email these days? Being a modern medium, the blogosphere is a bit short on tradition and ceremonial so,….I guess I’ll just shut up and get on with it. Thanks to Judge Parish – aka, the Great Nine-Banded Armadillo – for the opportunity.

Good one Geoff …. never made it at Troppo myself, alas, but I trust you’ll make a double and much more.

The question should be, do republican centenarians get telegrams? Will Malcolm Turnbull get one when he turns 100? Will there still be a royal family to send him a telegram anyway?

Given the rate and longevity of Jame’s posting, as a long term soloist, he should get his telegram from a veritable Master of the Universe.

Good job, Geoff, old son.

(And that stuff ain’t lost… it’s just resting. Seriously, I’ve still got a copy, and I think Ken has too.)
