3 generations of tarts

Ever since I made my first appearance in the Manly Daily doing the Mexican Hat Dance and wearing an exceptionally ugly poncho, I've been a bit of a media tart. Things really peaked when I was at A & R and I seemed to pop up in the local rag all the time.

My father also seems to have become a bit of a media tart. It started out quite harmlessly, the occasional appearance in column 8. Then there was the 'great daisy brouhaha' when he graced the front page of the Mosman Daily looking suitably serious and now he appears well, almost daily, in the aforementioned paper due to his work setting up a Bendigo Bank.

Jack, however is going to give him a run for his money. He's currently in the Cultural Guide to Wagga (yes, it does exist and no, it is not blank). Last weekend he appeared in the Daily Advertiser in an ad for storytime at the Library and now he's on a poster at Wagga Airport. That's him dressed as a book lovin' scurvy dog in the bottom right hand corner. A-Harrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

I laughed out loud at your Cultural Guide comments! You'll be back in the paper soon as Reader of the Week!

Ps. I have never been to Ajanta and would love to go with you one day when it isn't 44 degrees.
