Alanvale and The Lazy Farmer

Alanvale and The Lazy Farmer


We had a drought year last year and my dam is empty but my water tanks are still full so it should be safe to use some on establishing a garden. First, we need a tap!

Dad had the bird cage there when he bought the house and he's asking me to move it. This would make an excelling beginning for a chook run.

I prefer to drive at night when there is less traffic but as you might ecpect, nocturnal animals are out and about.

It can only just be seen with the naked eye but how exciting to find out that the World Meteor Network Sites in Western Australia were the first to see the newest exploding star. There was partial vision at Darkan, Bindoon and Toodyay and a good clear view at Pemberton.

It's old and it's heavy. It will take several trips to get the materials down from Perth but it's worth it.

Haynes, Western Australia south of Perth.

It's a bit rough but someone should run with it!
Ode to Donald
(To the tune of “I’ve got a little list”)

As someday it may happen that a victim must be found,
He’s got a little list; He’s got a little list.
Of political offenders who might well be underground
And never would be missed – who never would be missed.
There’s the New York Judge who flaunts his pecs and smiles for the press
His GF sitting with him on the bench for us to guess
The footsies we don’t know about, the notes we see her pass
Alana in defence is causing twitching of his ___ (brass)
And Tricia sitting back behind I wonder why she’s miffed
They'd none of 'em be missed — they'd none of 'em be missed!

He's got 'em on the list — he's got 'em on the list;
And they'll none of 'em be missed — they'll none of 'em be missed

There’s the primaries contender who doesn’t know she’s lost
And her rich financialist – He’s got them on the list
And big fannie down in Georgia and her “Waders” she has kissed
They never would be missed — they never would be missed!
And the journalists who cover up with an aggressive tone
They fill the void with many varied stories of their own
They’d like to get him jailed but he never wears a frown
He’s got DOJ and FBI and those who wear black gowns
And the former leader of the house who constantly was pissed
I don't think she'd be missed — I'm sure she'd not be missed!

He's got her on the list — he's got her on the list;
And I don't think she'll be missed — I'm sure she'll not be missed!

There’s the one who sniffs the children’s hair and can’t get off the stage
and silly archivists – He’s got them on the list
And men all dressed in black with guns who love to raid his house
They'd none of 'em be missed — they'd none of 'em be missed
An old and senile statesmen who may have a Chinese wife
A pencil necked gentleman who cannot tell the truth
And thingybob and watsisname and howdy do you do
The task of filling up the blanks I'd rather leave to you
But it really doesn't matter whom you put upon the list
For they'd none of 'em be missed — they'd none of 'em be missed!

You may put 'em on the list — you may put 'em on the list;
And they'll none of 'em be missed — they'll none of 'em be missed!

That was a trap for young players. One mistake leads to others.

There's no water in the dam but the tanks are full so it's hand watering the fruit trees every week.

The first flight was really rough and I've just found the packing behind the gimbal so this one should be much smoother.

It's blowing a gale but I had to give it a go!

There was water in this Jerry Can but it may be gone now. It's still better to check.

I have no idea when this happened but somewhere in the past, I bought fuel that was polluted with water.

Jilly loves to lick out cups and whe she has finished she loves tearing them up even more. Pet bottles, paper cups food bags, you name it but in the long run it saves the furniture.

The land may well have been cleared 100 year's below but "things" still lurk where you least expect them.

Jilly likes to drag all kinds of smelly stuff inside. Road kill, sheep poo, eggshells, branches, you name it.

When you fill a raised bed with compostable materials, sooner or later you have to top it up.

Farmers, even lazy farmers always seem to work things out. Fortunately, Darkan has a couple of good engineering companies.

It's hard to park the ute with all this (good) junk in the shed. Let's move it to the wood shop.

We kept ringing the moving company to take them away then the phone stopped ringing. They'd gone bust.

Feral foxes are declared vermin in Australia and I don't have a gun so I'm always polite to Mr Fox. My neighbour shoots about 90 every year.

I was going to spray the spiders but this guy is here every morning.

With drought conditions yhis year and soil moisture the lowest in 138 years, subsoiling will help prevent runoff.
