ever been to dubbo?

a good friend of mine, nigel, has spent all of his life growing up on the land and working in the bush, rounding cattle, sheering sheep, and generally been a hard worker away from the hustle and bustle of busy life. His parents came into some money, and really wanted to take his three children for an overseas holiday. When they came back from their three month holiday overseas holiday, nigel was there at the airport to greet them. the two girls and one boy were so excited about what they had seen, and where they had been, they chatted non stop. emily, the middle child was the most excited 'dad, we went to gracelands, where elvis lived......have you been to gracelands dad?' to which he replied 'no emily, i've never been to gracelands. 'dad, we went to las vegas, have you ever been to las vegas dad?'.......'no emily, i have never been to las vegas'...... 'DAD.....we went to Paris...have you ever been to paris?'......'no emily, i have never been to paris'.......'DAD.... we went to ITALY.....have you ever been to italy dad?...' .... 'no emily, i've never been to italy...' then she sighed, took a deep breath in as only a six year old can, and said,'that's alright dad, but you've been to Dubbo, havent you?' It took fifteen minutes before anyone could stop laughing. god love the bushy
