before daylight went ....

I’m sitting here at the kitchen table in between getting lunch out before we go out and start to lift out an old fence line.

Love New Shoes

by Simone McPherson
It's that time of the month again ...... for new Shoes! and a two hour journey into town to see the Farrier.  This time it had only been four weeks by our calender, since the last shoeing.  El Ranchero tells me .........

Cyclone "Rusty"

Ah! been a bit busy with all that wonderful rain! ...... the other morning as I awoke all I could hear was torrents of water gushing down the gullies. 

My God! the sound was incredible, but the sight was even more spectacular.  There goes all our electric fencing and our Solar panels along the creeks and the gullies, and the cattle too - I don't think that they intentionally want to escape? they just have fun in the rain ......

Now or Never

 Today we have had some wonderful rain - finally.  And today, I have a day off! so I decided that it was now or never - things happen and life happens and then it's all gone.  It's like planting a a little tree, if you keep putting it of the tree will never get to be a lovely big shady tree full of birds and other creatures sharing in it's abundance. 

..................... So I have had time to attempt this "Blog" that I have been wanting to do since - well, ages!  This is a memoir of a few words, some photographs, some sketches and lot's of laughter of our life here in the Australian bush, where we live and drove cattle - "el ranchero" and I.
