I was born sick,
But I love it
Command me to be well
Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen.

Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

Isn’t it funny how sometimes odd little coincidences occur in life?

Take this one for example – the Uncle, Cousins and Brother of the arch=pedophile Clarence Henry Howard Osborne – aka Clarrie Osborne – all lived withing a short walk or a decent stone’s throw from the Anglican Church Grammar School in East Brisbane, then known as the Church of England Grammar School, but best known as Churchie.

Gee that’s interesting Archie, I hear you say, but Brisbane’s a small town and sh*t happens and what does it all mean?

Plenty is the answer, especially in a town of well over a million that ain’t that small at all, but hold your breath and I’ll tell you why in a few minutes.

But for now just take a gawk and get the lay of the land.

First up, Clarrie’s Dad’s brother Merv – aka Mervyn Howard-Osborne – a lawyer about Brisvegas town.

He lived at number 11 Longlands Street, East Brisbane, a short jog or a mid-range gunshot from Churchie.

Cool Arch, I hear you say. So what?

I’d be asking the same question if I wasn’t a patient man prepared to let sleeping dogs lie until I’m ready to kick them in the guts and wake them up.

Just ask the Bovver Boy.

The joint below is where Clarrie’s brother Len – Leonard James Howard-Osborne – used to live, back in the days when Clarrie was in the Army.

The army? Clarrie?

I’ll tell you more about that in a minute too.

First though, have a peek at where Len used to live. It’s even closer to Churchie than Uncle Merv and the cuzzie bro’s joint.

Now be patient.

It’s the next bit that matters.
