Sluggy's New Year Wish

Quick update and Sluggy is a lot better.

When i rang him this morning to wish him a happy new year, I honestly thought he wouldn't make it ( into the new year) at one stage, but he is a tough old bugger.

Notwithstanding his toughness this morning he was having a good whinge....entitled to when you have spent 6 of the last 9 months in hospital in the same year that your wife for 50 years or so passes away.

Back to the subject at hand, he is pissed off with hospital food and when he read the menu out for today (personally I like Thai food) he was not impressed that it was baked beans, poached eggs (don't mind them either) and Thai food for the mains.

Could I ask anyone that lives in the vicinity of Bowral Hospital if they could investigate if there is some where local (ish) that would prepare a Duck La Orange for Sluggy and have it delivered by Uber Eats.....now if that can be arranged, I am happy to pay for same and as such I will credit account or even if the person can come up with the detail I will pay direct by credit card over the phone to said restaurant and also Uber.

Well that is the mission if anyone wants to take it!  Parra Tragic or Sluggy himself can verify my contact point as they both have my number. (not that Sluggy knows anything about this at this stage).

Good luck if you would like to accept the mission.

  • Good to hear Slugg's doing well. I've actually always wondered what Duck La Orange is...

    • My wife just explained "just a duck cooked in a orange sauce/glaze" now if you would like to take her off me Phil, I would happy to pay for one for you as well.

      PS She is a good cook, no guarantees after that! lol

      PS 2 You think I am a "grouchy old bastard" you ain't see nothin!

      • Hey Phil, was just talking to Sluggy and he said he just wants to be remembered.....can you get him a team photo with a few sigs on it.  I offered to get a picture and sign it 26 times, but he reckons (and he's right) I wouldn't be able to spell most of the names.

        PS The Hospital he is in, is the Southern Tablelands Private Hospital, Bowral......Karen and me are investigating the local restaurant scene now.

      • How old is she, Pops? And how much? I can only pay in camels

        • She is defintely not a virgin, when I look at her teeth she will probably be better than the camels.....those camels....are they one or two hump versions?604989906?profile=RESIZE_710x

          • 605100837?profile=RESIZE_710x

    • I think it maybe a green chook, but I can't be certain.

      • We have rang a dozen plus restaurants between Mittagong, Bowral, Moss Vale and Bunadoon.....not open or won't travel. Some have Duck, one was a vegetarian only, which was a great convo in Chinese when I asked if she had roast duck! lol

        We are going to set our sites on something tomorrow night for him.

        • Duck a la Orange vegetarian style.

          I would definitely send that to Ole Slugg.

          Great work Poppa.

    • DUCK A L’ORANGE is a French dish. Simply duck cooked in an orange based sauce. My orange duck is deep fried duck in orange sauce I get at some Chinese restaurants. Know stop fussing over me Pop I’m ive improved heaps.

"Yes, but I had respect for him when he signed with us. Last season tested it, but he has grown a heap as a player in all areas.
He may get a shot at origin next year as Cleary won't and I hope he got in Fafita's ear about how great a club Parra is."

"Yes his poor defence has been a myth after his first half dozen games  with us, where someone at Parra taught him to tackle. God knows why the whole team didn't learn at the same time......LOL"
