We watch our All Black Captain
Kieran Read hug Jacinda.
(We were watching the Bledisloe Cup).
Can you imagine Theresa May
hugging one of the Lions?
We do things differently in N.Z.
And currently even the Aussies
(aka Prime Ministers) can see that.
They’re envious as all get-out.
Are they ever!!
And who can blame them?
But I just want to put in a plug
for Beauden Barrett. What a record breaker!
(And a mention for Sam Whitelock
for his 100th AB game, and earning his cap.)
A few years back our dear Bub Bridger
wrote a poem. She wanted a Whetton
for Christmas. Well I want Beauden Barrett
for my birthday next month. Just
his smile will do.
Ae, I have my envies as well.
