* a collection of stories and memories, in no particular order, from the life and times of John Clarke, who served as a policeman in the Australian Police Force, a great practical joker, he also had a great affinity with people and wildlife, was a champion swimmer, snooker player, loved golf, still loves fishing and is also an artist. I hope you enjoy his recollections - cheers, karin (his daughter)
I was down at my mate Speddo's place today and his young fisho mate, Ant. was there.
Ant was telling me the other day he caught a nice mud crab in the river. He took it home to eat.
An elderly lady visitor saw the crab and didn't want to see it go in the pot, so she paid Ant $15
to take it back and release it.
He did so.
Two days later the same crab was back in his pot - bad luck for the crab this time :(
