Back in the 1990’s, a man drove a yellow Lamborghini all around the world to beat a world record. The young man, who wore a yellow beany, was a millionaire because he won the lottery.
Starting at Townsville, he drove to Cape York, then went north to Russia on a private ferry which crossed the Arafura Sea, the Banda Sea, the Celebes Sea, the South China Sea, the Philippine Sea and Sea of Okhotsk. The stop at Okhotsk ferry station was where he drove back onto land before going through Russia to Finland in his yellow Lamborghini on the bumpy roads to beat the world record. The man, back in the 1990’s, broke the world record and destroyed the yellow Lamborghini.
Robby (aged 12)
Yesterday, down by the Cabbage creek, there was a golden retriever who works as a drug sniffing dog, having a wonderful day off from his normal day job at the Brisbane airport. He was a serious and sometimes cranky dog. Walking down by the creek was the Queensland Minister of Police getting ready for his Channel Ten interview, when the dog smelt some drugs in the back pocket of his jeans. As he was trained to do, the dog chased after the Queensland politician and bit him on the buttocks and put a lot of mud on his expensive suit. The cameraman got his camera fired up and the image went global of the Queensland Minister for Police getting arrested for drugs possession.

(*Any relationship to any politician serving or retired is purely ridiculous.)
(Our writing tutor enjoys stretching the abilities of our young writers. Robby is new to these writing exercises and it is surprising how well the young lads take to these tasks once their confidence is up. Today they worked on making complex sentences. How do you think he went?)
Nelly’s and Lucya’s adventure to Mongolia
Thirty years ago, back in the 1980s, in the border between Russia and Mongolia, two sisters had a snow ball fight. Winter made fifteen year old Nelly and thirteen year old Lucya so happy because they both had fun having snow ball fights and building snow men. One day the sisters went on an adventure and crossed the border into Mongolia at the town of Tashanta in an old white truck on the rough rocky track. When girls’ father Olag told them about the Bridge of Death he was smiling but when they got there, they screamed all the way over the old broken bamboo poles that stretched across the river where it had ripped a big hole in the road. When they arrived in Mongolia they told all their new friends about the Bridge of Death and how to fight with snow balls.
