This is where I went today. And I took a lot of photos. But they didn’t please me because there was a crowd of people and I really should go back and take my time. The workshop for the first two hours was really interesting. Then we went for a wander through scrub that yesterday would have looked to have nothing new to excite my … Continue reading Fun at the fungi workshop.
It is necessary to burn the litter of fallen eucalypt bark. It contains so much flammable oil it needs to be burnt at the start of winter while it is still dry enough to burn because if it is left until Spring it will become a fire hazard. It is now the first week of Winter. Continue reading Smoke!
What a shame! Never Mind! So you didn’t like the way it ended. You want an epilogue. You want me to wrap it up, nice and neat, like a fairy story. How many times have you asked if my stories are real or not? Yesterday the Australian Border Force announced (You can see the full report HERE) that they had found 1.6 tonnes of Methamphetamine … Continue reading Oh Dear!
So you staggered to the end of the story! But because you came late or you had to go away for a week and missed some bits and don’t actually get the whole thing do not despair. Or even worse do not just shrug your shoulders in dismissal. The whole story Concerning Constable Aaron can be read from start to finish if you just click … Continue reading Concerning Constable Aaron Wrap Up.

Aaron’s shirt was torn and he had a split lip and his left eye was going to look worse before it looked better. “He slipped on the floor while they were charging him.

Dear Candice, I hope this makes you smile today. Love John. Continue reading Postcard to Candice
Balyang Sanctuary is a public park on the banks of the Barwon River, in the suburb of Newtown, Geelong. It is 20 acres in size and consists of open park lands, lakes, and wetlands. Just ‘cos I like ’em – birds and trees. No comments. First week of winter and the sun came out five minutes after I drove away. Continue reading Balyang Park Geelong
We all assembled in Noel’s office to establish a common point of view; Noel was heading off to Cairns to talk with his boss down there and really wanted to make certain that we would let the ‘pass-the-parcel’ pipeline run and that they would catch things at their end. He had already spoken on the phone to Cairns but wanted to make sure all ends … Continue reading Pt 23 The Inspector
Later that evening Sgt Noel gathered us together to work out a plan for the future. Simmie was still out on Tin Hut #4 so there were only the five of us. Noel started by outlining what he saw as our options. “We have three ways to look at this,” he said, and set it out on a whiteboard. We arrest every boat that comes … Continue reading Pt 22 Final options
This is a repeat so just skip it if you want. But I don’t care because I like it myself. After Katie died it was the only logical thing to do. I didn’t want to go into a home but my hands don’t work as well as they should. Anyway the idea of having lots of single ladies for this old man to talk to … Continue reading The Therapist (Rpt.)
