My local Council unveiled their contribution to Australia Day this morning. A new bench in the Park. Pretty pathetic I thought, you can’t help but compare the contributions of our great-grandfathers with their huge lumps of statuary on every corner. The old boys donated dozens of Queen Victoria statues to the community, they had a strong sense of duty in those days despite their awful facial hair.
Still, I know seats are very popular, especially amongst the elderly. Take a look next time you’re outside, you’d be surprised how many people, when they see a seat, will sit on it.
