Wrong on all descriptors. *He had a congenital form of

didn't smoke legal or illegal stuff, and had more than

Ah you meant that Simon. We had a wake for him and there were 3 slabs with
a note give these to Dick if he shows up. Well being aussie beer we had to
turn it upside down and it all ran out, luckily we were able to catch most
of it.

Thanks for the beer .

Mike

PS If he only managed to drink 3 slabs more than you he wasn't a "true
Australian"
