Santa The Red-Nosed Mokee

Doug Williams # 2

Santa the red-nosed Mokee
Has a very shiny nose
That's because he takes his roof off
Ev'ry bloomin' where he goes.

All of the other Mokees
Think that Santa's cooked his brain.
They'll always have their roof up
In the sun or in the rain.

Then one full moon Christmas Eve
Santa thought anew.
Night's the time for roof down fun
In my red suit I won't turn blue.

Then all the other Mokees
Knew that Santa got it right.
Now they always take their roof off
On the run to see the Christmas lights.


Santa The Red-Nosed Mokee

Santa the red-nosed Mokee
Has a very shiny nose
That's because he takes his roof off
Ev'ry bloomin' where he goes.

All of the other Mokees
Haven’t got a bloomin’ clue,
How to take their flamin' roof off,
As it has been set with glue.

‘Til one soggy Christmas eve,
Santa came to say
All you other Mokees
Here is how to play.

Now all the Mokes together
Head to help Santa's sleigh
They filled all their Mokes with presents
Made the kids' Christmas Day.

A Merry Missy Christmas

  •  30 Mokes and around 65 people present but Missy and Rhonda were probably the 'best dressed'.

mokeappr  Meet Riley McNamara, a former baker now working at Eastern Honda. Twenty-one years old, Riley was a late starter into an automotive mechanics course at Box Hill T.A.F.E. Staff soon noticed his attitude and ability and those characterisitics, combined with recognising that life was making it difficult for him to continue the course, led to Riley's selection as the first recipient of the Moke Owners' Association of Victoria apprentice support program known as the Moke Owners' Association 'True Encouragement' Scholarship.


The presentation of this magnificent tool caddy and Sidchrome tools, total value $1500, and an honorary membership of the MOAV for a year, is another example of our commitment to the article in our constitution requiring the club to be of some good in the community. Andy Preston has led us into this new adventure and the feedback from staff at the August 22nd presentation suggests that Box Hill would be very happy to continue the relationship next year.

It's Wednesday June 7th at the regular Club meeting.

Glenn got here early and took pride of place right outside the club room door.

What better way to show of his baby - and be first to dig into the snags?

19 months before Glenn and Sweet Pea were in an accident. Glenn survived. Sweet Pea didn't. It was written off. So sad.

Glenn took the body, wrapped it in cloths and placed it in a tomb ... Oops sorry, wrong resurrection.

But Glenn really did take the body and has worked with his mates all that time to rebuild, recreate and improve his loved one.

Now there is plenty of new light in the Moking world.

Our June meeting saw the drawing of the raffle for the project Moke that had been so successfully marketed since Tracel started discussions with the committee some months ago. Tracel began by retelling the back story of the Moke and how Robin's sudden passing led to this moment. We were blessed with a peek into two loving lives.


Peter had set up a computer with a neat random draw program and Tracel clicked the mouse three times to find the three winning numbers. And here they are. Watch along the top of the screen to see the prizes drawn.
