(The Curmudgeon will remember that famous joke from Murray Roberts days)
The original 1970s joke was made
about brandy, but here's a champagne
that was made in the wire wrapper.
|An artist's impression of Greytown.|
For those of you who are not familiar with these parts, the Wairarapa is an area just north of Wellington and the Hutt.
You go over a very big hill to get there, this hill is bigger than the Nuova Lazio hill. Much bigger.
Greytown is past Featherston and on the way to Masterton in an area that has lots of farms. Greytown has been made into a trendy little town with lots of clothing shops - The Curmudgeon loves clothing shops and shopping in general - read HERE.
We'll take a trip to Masterton and probably to Martinborough, where we he had lots of farming holidays when I was a kid.

I got an interesting email from Robert (the BB) last night. He'd probably had a few too many wines, but so had I, so no judgement there.
It was an unusual email but I won't go into detail. He was talking about the PBs.
My only gripe is that he misquoted me..."Richard said "Life is easier without Robert and we do not miss him in the least!". "
"It's easier for us too. A good decision on your part."
It was written in reply to his comment,
"I hate to say it but I was relieved to not have to attend a PB rehearsal!"
There you have it.
