30 Ways of Looking at Marumaru South: (26) The Tin Bum

The tin bum doesn't win everything, that would be impossible. But she takes home more than her fair share of spot prizes and meat-packs.

Last week, hers was the only egg that didn't fall off during the annual egg-and-spoon race from the old lighthouse to the fire station.

‘Perhaps she practiced,’ suggested the postie.

The matchmaker just snicked.

The tin bum's good about it, though. She always puts on a barbeque and invites everyone to share her meat-pack. When she sent in three Twisties barcodes and won a family holiday, she gave it to someone with a husband and kids.
