- Thanks for the beer Ed...Daughters they're nothin'

but trouble. I've got three son in laws now, none of 

them are any good. The only one I like is the chink.

  My youngest daughter married him recently, she 

was always trying to leave home, and a few years 

ago she ran away...

  She went up and lived in a boarding house up

Hurstville. Anyhow to cut a long story short, I dragged

her out of work one day and took her back to 

where she was sleeping at night. All the sheets were

pulled off the mattress, and there were stains all over

it. The place was a knocking shop during the day of

course, so she decided to come back home quick!

  Anyhow she looked after me real good after that, what

with my wife Ruth been useless from a stroke, and 

ending up in a nursing home...She did everything

that I wanted, but now she's pissed off and married 

this chink...My shout...Same again?

You probably are Derina, but the story is fiction!
