For this relief. . .

Tarlee
Nestled among fields fat with wheat
Thy mighty silos ready to receive
The golden harvest.
Pit stop on the way to the wineries
of the Clare Valley

I had a pee
in Tarlee

Well, was a policeman at the door earlier. Apparently there was a breakin at the school across the street from us in the last 2 days. Had to tell him we were in Clare/Lower north last 3 days. Would have liked to help.

We went to Burra after leaving the caravan park, some nice antique shops there. In one I found a nice book on echidnas, bought that for great niece Milly. You may remember—on the trip to Tassie in 2016 we visited the Monotreme House in Beauty Point and Milly actually patted one of the two echidnas there (she also patted two baby Tasmanian Devils being looked after by staff at the wildlife sanctuary, making her unique in patting both echidnas and Devils.) Bought some opal chips for Milly’s mother and some bits and pieces for myself.

Oh yeah—Mum, in typical dementia fashion had forgotten to bring a walking stick. So we bought one in Clare. Walking out the Cheap as Chips the checkout chick said “this comes with it!” It was a USB cable. Bit skeptical but being polite I accepted it. The stick has a button—slide it one way one side of the handle becomes a torch, slide it the other way it flashes a red light and emits a loud noise. Tech comes even to walking sticks! USB cable to recharge the battery!

did you know ..?

that mucking around in dirt which is rich in diversity , which you breathe in , is actually really good for your gut health.?

It seems breathing in the soil particles with which you come in contact with whilst mucking about in the garden, substantially improves the health of your gastric system.

I can attest to that.

Yes, I did know. Been doing lots of mucking around in Tassie dirt and that won’t stop until I do.

Seems cods and Booby LOVED my bit of doggerel and want me to write some about them:

Booby

There was a pansy from Melbourne
Cheap pinot noir he would drink by the gallourne
Wanted to find a real man
Tried Dubyne for a while, swallowing
his ice age crap.
Now he is sad.


Cods
A cold and evil bitch
Eternally whinging whinging whinging
Yet does the very thing she whinges about.
Avoided by all except the friendless
like Agnes
