Coolamon Rotary News Bulletin #1617-35

Week of 8 May

Another slow news week for Coolamon, but lots of plans are being laid (for the changeover, DISCON 2018, bingo, etc.).  We have an interesting speaker for the upcoming meeting on 15 May (Catherine Warren, who heads up Days for Girls, a program to assist young women coming of age in Africa).


On the lighter side

As a older man was driving down the freeway, his mobile phone rang. He answered the phone, and heard his wife’s voice urgently warning him, “Herman, I just heard on the news that there’s a car going the wrong way on Route 290. Please be careful!”

“Hell,” said Herman, “It’s not just one car. There’s hundreds of them!!!”


The Puzzler

The government pays farmers a fee of $100 for each row of four trees they plant. An enterprising but dishonest farmer found a way of planting five rows of four trees using only ten trees. Can you work out how he did it?

Answer to last puzzle

The pictograms interpreted: 1) jack-in-the-box; 2) first aid; 3) eggs over easy; 4) for instance; 5) green with envy; 6) fat chance; 7) bigfoot; 8) sideshow; 9) travel overseas; 10) a friend in deed.
