-I have been approached by the co-editor of this magazine to write my reminiscences of things. This puzzled me at first; what were "​things"?​ "Why, things pertaining to the club, of course."​ I have decided not to write of feats of bushwalking endurance because I would tend to bore you. Instead, I shall write of things; things that gave pleasure, things that go wrong, things that people will remember as long as there are campfires to encourage the loquatious loungers in fact, Memorable Things.+I have been approached by the co-editor of this magazine to write my reminiscences of things.

I was not alone in my ideas. The famous bludger Jimmy Callaway, without a tent, shared mine, and we both deemed it a highly sensible arrangement. Alas, when a few months later before the Committee, my camping alone was taken as a sign of my unsociability. I was too timid to say the real reason why I camped alone away from the main party; and to this day can't remember what I gave as the reason; it may have been my snoring. That same committee meeting I was asked "Why did you throw a banana skin out of the train window?"​ On that self same trip to Blue Gum, I was munching on a banana and the train was whizzing over a gully and I threw it out in a beautiful curve with deadly accuracy into a jumble of lantana. Gone but not forgotten. Committee member ​"Would you throw a banana peel out of your lounge room window?"​ Of course I would; in fact I have for all of my life. Still a new prospective must say nothing and eventually I became a member.
