Out Of Orbit

There was a full moon a few days ago. I was driving home from work when I saw spotted it over the houses. It sure explained a lot.

Earlier that day, I was chatting to a sixty year old bloke who was super excited because he'd just received some good news.

"I'm gonna be rich!" he told me.

I got super excited for him. Maybe he'd take me out to dinner or something.

"What's happened?" I asked him.

"I'm sitting on a gold mine!" he exclaimed. "Seriously, I'm gonna need to buy a huge safe!"

Now I was thinking dinner in Milan or Rome.

"I'm gonna buy my kids houses," he nodded at me. Would it sound odd if I started calling him Dad?

"What's happened?' I asked again.

"I told you. I'm sitting on a gold mine. Five tonnes of gold."

"Really?" I said. Hey, we live in Gympie. It's possible.

"Yep. About forty feet down."

"I'll get a shovel and meet you there," I offered.

"The psychic told me all about it," he grinned.

"The what?"

"The psychic. She told me there's five tonnes of gold about forty feet under my back yard. I'm gonna be rich!"

Yep, the full moon sure brings them out.

About Me

My photo

Bruce Devereaux is one of the nicest people he knows. When not at work he enjoys reading, writing, hiding from his children and not changing nappies.


His career, and if we used the term any more loosely an e might fall out, has included a gardener, a personal lender, a console operator, a stop/go man (not as big a bludge as you might think but great if you’re into sunburn, abuse and varicose veins), a cleaner of banks and pubs and, for a very brief period, a door to door salesman (until the last door he knocked on was answered by a very scary woman with tremendously hairy legs).


Bruce Devereaux currently works as a forty-five-year-old award winning customer service officer (glass statuette available upon request) for the Bank of Queensland and as a very casual employee for Corrective Services. He likes to believe he excels at both but then he has always been prone to exaggeration.


His favourite colour is green, with a picture of Dame Nellie Melba on one side and General Sir John Monash on the other. His favourite flower is self-raising.

 If you see him around town, call his wife immediately - he's probably snuck out and left her alone with all the kids.
