Said Hanrahan

Come on fellas, brighten up! This thread seems to have descended into a death spiral of pessimism

I believe you are allegedly Australian, James?

I think you should know the therapeutic benefits of complaining....

SAID HANRAHAN (edited version)

"We'll all be rooned," said Hanrahan,
In accents most forlorn,
Outside the church, ere Mass began,
One frosty Sunday morn.

"It's dry, all right," said young O'Neil,
With which astute remark
He squatted down upon his heel
And chewed a piece of bark.

"If we don't get three inches, man,
Or four to break this drought,
We'll all be rooned," said Hanrahan,
"Before the year is out."

In God's good time down came the rain;
And all the afternoon
On iron roof and window-pane
It drummed a homely tune.

And every creek a banker ran,
And dams filled overtop;
"We'll all be rooned," said Hanrahan,
"If this rain doesn't stop."

And stop it did, in God's good time;
And spring came in to fold
A mantle o'er the hills sublime
Of green and pink and gold.

While round the church in clothes genteel
Discoursed the men of mark,
And each man squatted on his heel,
And chewed his piece of bark.

"There'll be bush-fires for sure, me man,
There will, without a doubt;
We'll all be rooned," said Hanrahan,
"Before the year is out."

Re: Is Caesar company dead?

You started an interesting discussion Yevgen, but it got a life of its own!

A somewhat direct answer to your question. I recently got Caesar's WWI German Army c/- Rupert at Drum and Flag. They were initially out of stock. In response to my enquiry he suggested that he'd get some in weeks. It took days! So, they are/have beeny producing from their existing catalogue. I hope that's of some use.
