She´s the most gorgeous woman I´ve ever seen. She´s more pocket-sized than tall, all soft curves and sweet tits. Her belly is the prettiest curve of them all, a delicate invitation for my tongue.

Winston! ´´Oh, hey,´´ Chip said lamely, spinning on his heel. ´´I didn´t think you were still here.´´ Seeing Brenden´s confused look, he clarified. ´´No limo.´´ ´´Oh, yeah.´´ Brenden looked down at his boots, the brown leather just scuffed enough to be fashionable. ´´I hopped an Uber over. I thought maybe you´d give me a ride back to the hotel so we could talk.´´ ´´I see.´´ Chip´s jaw tightened slightly. ´´I have my bike, so that won´t work, but I´ll wait with you if you want to get that ride back. We can talk while we wait.´´ ´´I was really hoping we could get some time alone to talk without being rushed,´´ Brenden offered quietly. ´´I have a lot to say. Doesn´t your bike have a passenger seat?´´ ´´Yeah.´´ Chip´s voice was clipped. ´´But I don´t carry passengers.´´ Not anymore, anyway, he thought to himself. Brenden had been the last person to sit behind him, clinging to his waist, as the powerful Harley had devoured the road. ´´Okay.´´ Disappointment registered clearly on Brenden´s face. ´´Will you come back to the hotel with me?´´ ´´Naw, man.´´ Chip stared over his shoulder. ´´I can´t, not tonight.´´ ´´Winston, please?´´ Brenden´s voice held a pleading note. ´´I really need your help.´´ ´´Don´t call me that,´´ Chip snapped, sharper than he meant to, and then felt a trace of shame as the smaller man took a step back. ´´Sorry,´´ Chip muttered, shoving his hands in his pockets. ´´I go by Chip now.´´ Brenden nodded. ´´Chip, then. I really do need your help.´´ Chip sighed, long and deep. ´´Get your ride scheduled and tell me what you need.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steve Carlson.

It´s been a year since their last outing. Brian, Ethel, and Father Frederick are back with more village idiocy. Frederick has injured his nipples in a vicious moped accident whilst on his honeymoon and no longer feels like a man. He´s taken up the drink again and is making people´s lives a misery with his antics again. He can´t work out why strange men keep following him while he´s out drink-driving, though. Brian´s concentrating on getting through married life while trying to find a hobby that doesn´t hurt. His cousin Jeff (from The Office Idiot Reviews) has moved in for the summer and is on hand to help Brian with his assertiveness when he is bullied by the local biker, Jock. Ethel has discovered that it was Denny who made her shopping trolley explode last year and with Denny now an adult and living outside the safety of the children´s home, it won´t be long before she exacts the revenge she´s been after. Meanwhile a battle for power is taking place at the manor house. Lord Monty, who ordered his title from the Internet, is in a battle of wills with his gamekeeper, Chopper.

Following are a few brief excerpts from this guide, written by a lifelong resident of Australia. She covers everything you might want to know about this part of Australia - guaranteed! The places to stay, from budget to luxury, rentals to B&Bs; the restaurants, from fast food to the highest quality; the beachwalks and bushwalks; the wildlife and how to see it; exploring the country by air, on water, by bike, and every other way. Australia´s Northern Territory is a vast land of contrasts, stretching from the beautiful reefs and tropical rainforests at the very top of the country down through the amber deserts and dusty golden plains of the Red Centre. In the north the land is edged by a melding of languid mangrove swamps and smooth white beaches. Brilliant corals spread out beneath the waters, lining coves split by wide brown estuaries. Rivers snake from the coast down through thick woodlands and deep canyons, dwindling in width as they reach the drier plains. Here, the north Australian Outback is the true, endless Land of the Never Never, so famously coined by author Jeannie Gunn in her We of the Never Never novel of Outback station life. Quite simply, those who live here or who have stumbled across the fascination of its true beauty can never, never leave it. Halfway down through the territory are the great, ochre-colored deserts, where the fine, red earth is splashed with random thatches of spiny grass and clusters of rough-chiseled boulders. All you can see to the horizon at noon is blood-red earth and pale blue sky, the vast expanse only interrupted by the low, green-gold peaks of the MacDonnell Ranges at the far southern edge of the region. Their rumpled slopes hide pockets of waterholes and huge, shallow lakes, all of which erupt with animal activity after the rains. Near the base of the territory, near the border of South Australia, is the great red monolith of Uluru, the country´s most famous sight, which pushed up through the surface millions of y 1.
