missed out

28 March, 2012

MR D.A. TEMPLEMAN (Mandurah) [7.30 pm]: […] I am coming from an angle that I think the world has been flooded with so many days of celebration that it has become quite confusing. I do not even know what international year it is this year. We have international years for things and national years for things. Children now graduate from kindergarten!

Mr B.S. Wyatt: Just because you never graduated!

Mr D.A. TEMPLEMAN: I am very, very jealous of modern children who go to their balls in limousines and Hummers. In my day, in Northam, our ball was at the lesser hall. I can remember that we were driven there, but we paid our mate, who was an older fellow with a licence.

Dr A.D. Buti: Did you go in a horse and buggy?

Mr D.A. TEMPLEMAN: No, not quite.

Dr A.D. Buti: Why not?

Mr D.A. TEMPLEMAN: The horse was lame!
