Meet Me Mate Skip

Skip and I live down in Australia.

He’s my drinking buddy. Drinks me under the table.

Say g’day Skip


That’s roo for g’day folks

If you own a pet dog you take it for a walk round the block after work for exercise. Right?

Skip’s not into walking. Insists on a daily ride. We attract a few stares but what the heck.

I’ll tell you something you didn’t know. Skip was a child movie star.

You don’t believe me? I have archival footage of Skip to prove it. Skip gets all misty-eyed watching his younger youthful self. They even wrote a special song for him.

Just give me a Fosters and a quiet time now he says. Looks quite content above.

Best mates we are

Have a beer on us
