The Red Wattlebird

Anglesea, Vic, Nov 2016

It was one of these little guys who gave our mate Toothless his nickname. Poor old Johnno was eating lunch in the sun when he broke a tooth off his denture plate (we’re still not quite sure what Johnno’s Missus put in those sandwiches). Anyway, getting back to the story, Johnno put the tooth on the picnic table and it was quickly scooped up and swallowed by an avaricious wattlebird. Some days you just can’t help bad luck and the name…well it stuck (better than the tooth).
