Nan joins the local “Macramé Mammies”… and hates it. A tipsy Pop talks himself up and scores a job selling real-estate! “Stone the crows, it’ll be Iced Volvos every-night!”

Nan hates the bloody local macramé club (what was she thinking) – she never thought she’d use her macramé to kill!  “Bunch of old whiney goon bags if you ask me.  I mean fair suck of the saveloy, you can’t even drink a shandy there – club rules… it’s enough to drive a body beresk!”

Meanwhile, Pop gets on a roll after swinging the clubs around the Paradise Palms golf course.  Later at the clubhouse, with a few shandies under his belt, Pop talks himself up as a real-estate mogul… and actually scores a real job!  His polished brogues have finally paid off…

“Darl you’ll be as popular as a rattle snake in a lucky dip”

“Nan, may your chooks turn into emus and kick your dunny door down!”

With that lame arse poise Pop knows it’ll be mully-gruber.

“He who has the fastest cart never has to play the fib.”

Pop takes it back to the ritzy Paradise Palms Country Club for a few shandies

A few shandies gives Pop some confidence with the classy vista. They don’t know he’s not a club member….

Nothing like a nice cool shandy.

After hitting a birdie (a cockie actually) back at the clubhouse, and “full as a centipede’s sock drawer” with shandies; Pop gets the wind in his sales while yacking to the local real-estate agent – a hooker in fact.  Next thing law and behold Pop’s scored himself a bloody paid job – selling homes in the area!

“Pop, I always knew you’d end up working as a hooker”

Pop wonders what it will be like working as a hooker

…and so “Pop’s Pick” emerges on the Cairns real-estate scene – like never before.

One of Pop’s ACTUAL adds, that he wrote himself! Yep Pop rocks it, copy and all… Nan says he’s a natural born hooker.

An expert in pointing, Pop embraces the real-estate world

“Hey Nan, what does a real estate agent use for birth control?”  “Oh Pop pleeeease, not another bad joke”     …”His personality!”

It all gets super chummy round the table at the golf club, and a tipsy hooker signs up for “Pop’s Pick” on the dotted line.

“Pop – I’m bloody flabbergasted. You’ve actually got a paid gig. It’s Iced Volvos every night!”

How salubrious to have a gym.

Close to the gym! Pop demonstrates his strength.

“Hey Nan – what do you call a girl standing in the middle of a tennis court? …..Annette”

Pop takes a break selling real estate for a sea breeze at Palm Cove.

After the Macramé Mammies, and with a rather parched mouth like the bottom of a buggies cage. Nan takes to some bubbles to toast Pop's new gig.

“You know Nan…. I’m gonna have a crack at flogging our travels pics!” “Pop – you lost your marbles. How do you expect to do that sweetie?” “I’m gonna take them to the TANK GALLERY” “Rightio Pop. the world really is a bowl of oysters!”.


And it was just like that….. Pop decided to print up a batch of holiday snaps in his home lab and marches off to the TANK Gallery in Cairns.  He couldn’t possibly think they’d get into an exhibition, but then again who thought he’d be flogging real-estate!

“Gosh can it get any better than this Nan?”  “…Pop there’s always tomorrow!”
