"You gone fishin' (well how you know)
Well there's a sign upon your door (uh-huh)
Gone fishin' (I'm real gone man)
You ain't workin' anymore (could be)
There's your hoe out in the sun
Where you left a row half done
You claim that hoein' ain't no fun (well I can prove it)
You ain't got no ambition" Crosby and Armstrong
In 1951 Bing and Satchmo recorded a memorable duet. The collaboration transcended race and contemplated recreation versus work, as a choice.
I have been left with no choice. I am shutting my beachside bistro until the restrictions are eased. To carry on takeaway would cost me $2 for every $1 of sales.
My apologies to Chef Wilson, Bec, CJ, Bam, Immi & Tutti. To my internationals, Frenchy, Christsan, Paniman, Santi & Mathias. My apologies to our friends at Clamms, Gamekeepers, That's Amore, Levito Bakery, Ripe 'n' Ready, Calendar Cheese, Ocean Eight, Quealy & Mornington Peninsula Brewery. My apologies to all our wonderful customers that have supported us during the most challenging of times.
Mornington Peninsula has zero cases, zero. The damage done by COVID-19 to our industry and region is disproportionate to the rest of the Victorian economy. I cannot understand how DictatorDan includes us in Metropolitan Melbourne but just across the bay at Queenscliff is business as usual. It makes no sense.
I'm sick of the roller coaster ride, I'm going fishing.
