Flying the Coop





My eldest son, Daniel left home in February 2007 to pursue a career as a jackaroo on a wheat/sheep property in south western NSW.  He says that he likes his job, but more importantly he loves the area where he lives.  I think that has something to do with his girlfriend, Ange!!

Here he is with his best mate, Rex on a trip home to see us with his other prized possession - his ute!  Then there's a picture of his mailbox - how rural!  The property was in the grips of a very bad drought when he moved there and this year is shaping up to be exactly the same.  He lives in a very basic house on the property which was the original shearers quarters from over 100 years ago.  The last picture is of his latest best mate, Wally.

I am visiting from your sister's blog - and am looking forward to more posts about your farm. It doesn't matter if they are in the country or the city; a man and his dog are always great mates - just ask my hubbie who still picks up our dog like she was a baby!

The pup is so cute. Is it a kelpie. We have a kelpie named Jake and they are so smart too. I love all your cats. We have one named Bella who looks similar to your one who gets dressed up. I look forward to reading about your life on the farm.

Hey, who is that guy with the cute puppy in my lounge?!
We too now have a kelpie of our own, his name is "Doug" - it was "Dig" then he made a hole, and now he's "Doug"! lol. Wally and Rex have had a few holidays at our place (as has Dan!) and "Doug" has picked up some naughty habits, from Wally!
I will have my own "blogspot" soon and I hope you will visit me.

Love, Pam
Ange's Mum :)
