I Like Chinese

Every country town of a certain size has one, right?
They are as ubiquitous as the country pub and CWA.
They hold a special place in the psyche of rural Australia.
I like to let some of that love come my way, coz I reckon in some small way I contributed to that affection.
OH SHUT UP! I know - I'm totally ridiculous.
But I am 1/16th Chinese, you know?!
And my great, great grandfather WAS a Chinese pioneer of our country.
It may be tenuous, but it's all I got!

Daggy Ladies

Daggy ladies - and I mean that with the most sincerest of affection, in the Cancer Council caravan at the Relay for Life.

I'm going to get expelled from the Daily Photo group if I don't get my act together!!
Feeling the need for some wide open spaces.
I think a drive in the bush is called for tomorrow.

Just outside Ararat - March, 2008.

Theme Day - My Local Corner Shop

I haven't got one!!
The corner local shop seems to have gone the way of the dinosaur, round these parts.
Which is strange, right?
We're a country town!
They've been squeezed out by the convenience of big supermarkets.
The baker, butcher and fruit shops are all still going, it's just the little corner shop that has died out.
But I'm "posamistic" that they will have their day again!

Bloggers from around the world have participated in today's theme day.
Check them out here
