TIME TO SMILE
A man was looking for a place to sit in a crowded university library.
He asked a girl: “Do you mind if I sit beside you?”
The girl replied in a loud voice ……
“NO, I DON’T WANT TO SPEND THE NIGHT WITH YOU!”
All the people in the library started staring at the man, who was deeply embarrassed and moved to another table.
After a couple of minutes, the girl walked quietly to the man’s table and said with a laugh:
“I study psychology, and I know what a man is thinking;
I bet you felt embarrassed, right?”
The man responded in a loud voice:
“$500 FOR ONE NIGHT? ….. I`M NOT PAYING YOU THAT MUCH!”
All the people in the library looked at the girl in shock.
The man whispered to her:
“I study law, and I know how to screw people”.

I previously asked if anyone knew of Bob Faulkner – who may or may not be ‘on the right side of the grass’ (his words).
Bob and I shared a dark sense of humour – and he was the 1 RAR’s UNOFFICIAL WAR ARTIST in ’65-’66.
I had tried to get his 200 or so artworks/ cartoons exhibited – but to no avail. I then had his written permission to do with them as I wished.
I have lost his contact since due to my 173rd email service being deleted (for commercial reasons).
If Bob has since passed on, I would like to contact his NOK in order to fulfill a promise to return his LAST copy of his published COMIC BOOK: ‘WAKKA’.
BOB may not be known to you – as we were both spending duty time at BHQ, while you were attached to an infantry platoon, as was I initially. He spent a lot of time drawing on scraps of scrounged paper, until I had family send over a sketch pad to pass onto him.
He then went on – surprisingly – to become an officer (from lowly private ranks) – and established a SECURITY FORCE FOR Canberra’s APH; AND working alongside the notorious ‘BIG E’
(ESSEX-CLARK) in Canberra.
I have not been able to contact him from the days when he last lived in the vicinity of Rockhampton (Qld). I believe he was then about to move to be close to a hospital close to Brisbane.
I would like to know if anybody knows of his outcome – as I still wish to honour his creative uplifting of morale back in those DAZE. (AND if you or anybody can assist in promoting an exhibition of his art / comedic talents). The ‘Big E’ was the target of some of his ‘taking the mickey’ out of some of those that Bob worked alongside.
