Prankster has his brother looking at the calendar
LEGAL man from around town took his dog for his walk around Prince Henry Drive about 5.30am on Wednesday.
The solicitor and his brother have a lifelong penchant for pranking each other and, realising his brother lived nearby, he dropped in for an early morning visit.
Our man banged loudly on the back door, waking his brother and his brother's wife who appeared at the back door, wiping sleep from their eyes.
"Quick, the police are at the front," the solicitor yelled to the waking couple.
"Someone's driven through your front fence."
The couple screamed: "Oh no!" (or words to that effect).
Just as they went to run to the front, the date suddenly sprang to mind.
"Bloody April Fool's Day," the brother sighed.
SIGN OF THE TIMES?
LOCAL chap lives across the road from a lady friend who celebrated a milestone birthday last weekend.
Doing the neighbourly thing, our man walked over the road to her house bearing birthday gifts - three bottles of fine wine from his collection and four rolls of toilet paper.
Whispers is not sure which gift the birthday girl appreciated more.
WHERE THERE'S SMOKE . . .
IN ANOTHER example of the times in which we live.
Toowoomba solicitor was taking instructions from a lady whose partner was a heavy smoker and regularly coughed.
However, after each time he coughed he assured all in the room that "It's just smoker's cough!"
