Yass Men's Shed "Hero of the week"

Our hero this week – who is more than a 1000km from Yass as I write is Roger Holgate. He is currently caravanning in Queensland and sent this photo and comment:

His message attached was:

"Hi all,
 I just could not resist taking a shot of the banner on the hotel at Biloela.   I am sure that it impresses all the wives.
 Cheers, Roger."

A close-up of the banner reads:

 "Husband Day Care Centre"
Need to relax? Need time to yourself? Want to go shopping?
Leave your husband with us! We will look after him for you.

For those unfamiliar with Australia, Biloela (pr: "Bill-Oh-eel-ah") is near Gladestone on Far North-East Queensland coast. Biloela is a growing rural town with a very diverse agricultural industry including cotton, sorghum, wheat, herbs and spices. The cattle industry is thriving with the largest number of cattle of any shire in Queensland. The town is the centre of the Banana Shire. The name came from a tan coloured bullock, named Banana, which worked on a property in the region in the mid 19th century.

Very funny, Is there a waiting list?

No waiting list Joe - we currently have 74 financial members for this financial year. The 'award' is a real weekly award', however, this one was slightly unusual.
