We all fall down …

January 18, 2011

What is it with all the stuff falling down lately?

I’m not talking about buildings in Christchurch because a good 7.1 rattle will do that to a city. No, I’m talking about our stadium crapping out during the September snowstorm, that building in Dunedin having a whoopsie  last week and now a collapsing roof in Auckland.

I’d ponder that perhaps we are incapable of building good stuff any more but the building in Dunedin was an oldie.

Maybe it’s time we all started wearing hard hats as part of a Kiwi uniform.

I live in the deep south of New Zealand, where smelly dairy cows are taking over from sheep in the livestock stakes. My hometown is the small but perfectly formed city of Invercargill, which is also the hometown of the original boy racer, Burt Munro. Find out more about me here.
