I think I’ll start with the easy ones while I try to make up something for the harder ones. I know most of you already now all about this but if you don’t it may be

I’d also like to know why you picked Willowtree. My kids would all like to know where you got that Barbie. Like, did you just happen to have a Barbie lying around or are you an avid Barbie collector or did you
purposely go out and buy a Barbie for the picture? And while we’re on the subject of that picture, who’s the dog?
Why I picked Willowtree…
No surprise here, Willow Tree is a small town in Rural Australia. I live just outside it. It’s a nice quiet little town with at population of about 200, although it is a service centre for quite a large number of outlying properties so there is a general store and a pub. There was a bank until about 6 months ago.
Over on the right we have a picture of the Main street of Willowtree (which is actually the New England Highway at this point) during peak hour. We’re just under an hour away from Tamworth, the Country Music Capital of Australia, which frankly I’ve always found to be somewhat of a misnomer, given that all they have is a Contry Music Festival once a year. All the country music artists actually live and record on the Central Coast (where our other house is).
Now, as for the dog and the doll. The name of the blog is "A Dingo’s got my Barbie" which is a play on words of the purported cry of Lindy Chambermaid (aka Meryl Streep). You can Google it for the full story (I’ve misspelled her surname on purpose), last time I addressed it here, some dickhead with an obsession for the case wanted to get into an argument about it. I mean shit, who really gives a rat’s?
So here’s the deal…
1. I’ve never owned a Barbie doll.
2. This is why her panties are around her ankles.
3. I found the picture on the net.
4. It’s not a dog it’s a Dingo.
5. My good bluddy Mark photoshopped the picture in the sidebar to represent the blog title.
6. He used a picture similar to this one, but I can’t find the one he used.
I may answer some of the text based questions tomorrow, unless I fall off a ladder (which would be a much better story)
