Since you all had such fun with creaky old media yesterday, (thanks to Mumbrella and Crikey for the referrers) I thought I’d stay all ole and creaky with the ABC.

Maybe my friends at The Style Council, aka The Heritage Council can tell me. I see your stats Style Council.
I did find it touching that they were still delivering the phone books as if Wally Foreman or George Grljusich might still walk back in. They still have that no smoking sign that George used to ignore I see.
Even more touching was the indoor plant just inside, the Gardeners Best “Bushy Prince”. I think Russell Woolfe now holds that title with his tufting experiment reading the weather recently. I could just hear the plant calling out, “They wouldn’t forget me. No, no way. Not The Bushy Prince! Not the old Prince? They’ll be right back to pick me up… They wouldn’t forget the old Bush. Peter Holland used to say “How’s it going Bushie? He always used to call me Bushie…They’ll be back…”
