Every time I see photos of our shearing sheds

I confess to feeling a bit nostalgic.

I guess after spending 32 shearings/years

in this one (my parents)…

…and 18 years/shearings in our shed…

…that is to be expected.

However, then I think of the long hours

and associated stress for very little return

and my nostalgia is like a bird on the wing.

This is probably a stage of building a house…

which most prospective home owners

would try to avoid.

Six week old lions cubs annoying mum…and each other.

 From memory, these tiger cubs were

arouund three months old when

we viewed them at DreamWorld.

No idea of the age of this giraffe,

except to say that it was a baby in the wild,

in Botswana.

Considering giraffes are arond six feet tall at bith,

I would estimate this baby to be closer

to a baby than the tiger cubs…much closer.

The baby of our babies.

 

 

Twenty four or five years on, there is no way

I would put myself in this position again.

These days I am the junior by

around 25-30 kilograms.
