GOD IS ALIVE AND WELL AND LIVING JUST OUTSIDE MANGAWEKA

Driving back to Paihia the other day we stopped at the layby just below the Mangaweka Viaduct.     Met a lovely English couple in their motorhome who had exercised their right, as freedom campers, to spend the night there.

Invited to share coffee and cake with them.   They were in a fairly buoyant mood and hastened to tell us why.    Both are fairly heavy sleepers but hubby was woken up during the night by movement and strange sounds around the vehicle but, deciding discretion was the better part of valour, rolled over and went back to sleep.

In the morning they woke up to see a hose protruding from the outlet to the onboard sewage tank situated on the other side from their fuel tank.    Seems the dumb-arse thieves got more than they bargained for when they picked the wrong tank and tried to syphon the contents out.

Clearly God is alive and well and resides underneath the Mangaweka Viaduct.

How pleasant to think that out there in the central North Island there's a young man who'll most likely never suck a hose again...

Young ladies do not suck hose, by definition. Such is the sexism inherent in society.

I figured you can never say never when it comes to young ladies.
