Good afternoon and welcome to midweek mayhem..
Our middle of the week, general gas bag thread.
Has anyone been watching Underbelly? Well here is a true story for you. Me, yes the rebster, once stayed at Terry “Mr Asia” Clark’s mansion in the Bay of Islands in New Zealand. I kid you not.
It was after he died in jail in the early 80’s. All his assets (including the Bay of Islands Mansion) became property of the crown. It was during this time, that I got invited by a friend who was somehow connected to certain lawyers to go and stay there for a weekend with the rest of the “business people” and their partners. We got to see the hidden cellar (accessed through a hidden staircase in a linen cupboard) where the heroin was stored as well the jetty where the boats would pull in with “the stash”
I was just a young 20 something, but it was a hoot. The mansion was still fully furnished with a pool table as well as Terry Clark’s yacht. We went out on the yacht and some of the guys went scuba diving, and then we came back to the lodge and had a huge barbie with freshly caught scallops and fish and white wine.
Anyway, don’t know why I brought that up. But anyway…memories….*sigh*
