Nah, yeah, nah, haha, You don't hear it enough nowadays. It's politically incorrect as it was in the early 1900's. I love it and use it at traditional Aussie BBQ's but at work I just get a weird look.

I'm a writer myself and I think you've got talent.

You remind me of Frank McCourt who wrote Angela's Ashes about growing up in Ireland. He was good at expressing his culture through language as you are.

Is this a true story? Or partially true? Or just total fiction?

Well, nice comment Russ. This is fiction, totally. I more lean to SciFi and thought about this topic for a few days and wanted to write something familiar to me but different. I grew up in an era where there was no indoor gaming apart from billiards or snooker. And I wasn't allowed to go there so me and the mates spent all our spare times outdoors getting up to mischief.

But certainly, nothing as reflected in the story. There was nothing better than a game of footy or cricket in the street. Or bike riding round the beach. Occasionally we bumped into the tougher kids and got whooped but that was about the most violence I handled in those days.

So the setting is similar, language perhaps toned down (T's and C'). The violence and conditioning reflects what I have seen much later in my life. I never saw a dead body until I was 27 and that was in a morgue.

Thanks mate,

bally

Lol. Nah. Not that flash. Like I said more like Coit but he got a series. Just a couple of minutes for me.

Good, raw murder story with a vengeful twist at the end. Very believable.

I liked the pacing of the story, the blurred rush at the end was quite effective! Well done.

I don't know what I liked more, the story itself or all the Aussie jargon.

Very good Bally
