Thought I’d whip up a quick n’ easy occa post this mornin’ to shout out to me ol’ Queenslanders still under the weather with that ol’ cyclone business up North. Those Darwinians too…doesn’t rain but it pours!!
Readin’ Huckleberry Finn n’ they speak in their native tongue, like. Thought I’d give it a good go with me own native vernacular.
Also saw me first ‘Aussie Bible’ available online. Here’s an account of that Jesus, and his birth:
Jesus is born (Luke 2:1-7)
In those days Caesar Augustus ordered a head count of the whole Roman world. (This was the first big tally, when Quirinius ran the Syrian branch of the empire.) And everyone had to go back to the bit of country they were born in to fill in the forms.
So Joe hiked up from Nazareth (in Galilee shire) to Bethlehem (in Judea shire) because this spot in the mulga was where King David came from, and Joe’s family tree had King David up in the top branches. He went there to fill in the forms and sign the register with his fiance, Mary, who was pretty near nine months by this time. While they were there, she gave birth to a baby boy. She wrapped him in a bunny rug, and tucked him up in a feed trough in a back shed, because the pub was full to bursting.
Here’s to you guys!!! 🙂
