Re: GDAY Mate!
Check out the telly book and look up Malcom Calhune, I think the bloke spells it this way.
I had a guy from Sidney who came to our factory he was an Engenear(screw the spelling)
he told me about the hell he raised as a kid..catching BullDog ants from a half dozen nests and dump them all on one nest at one time..the cain toads they would do a walkabout at night with a broom handle with a spike of tool steal and stab them and toss em into the bush.
I see every so often you have dust storms and bush fires..
damn we get tornados you would not like them we have a bad history here..we had one just north of us in 53 it killed over 100 people if you Google,, Beecher Tornado you would see some bad $hit, If you have ever heard of a band of yanks that recorded in the 60s and 70s called the Grand Funk Rail Road, we know the guys (good bunch of blokes you would like them) Mark Farner was about 6 when it came through, it lifted and passed over his home and touched down again about 4 ks east of his home, his barn was blown over to a 45 degeree angle they had a bunch of tractors pulling it back up right.
We had one that went over our home in 62 my ears hurt real bad, we were in our basement (celler) We all(kids) eather wet or craped our pants. pulled up our neighbors Oak tree it was about 200years old.. not blow it over, it pulled it up and tossed it a half mile away.
send me your E-MAIL ADRESSS and I will send a few pix from around home and show you my
rifles and what its like here...
right now its starting to rain but before the weather was down to -2 degrees F whis is how it gets here, real cold for the first of winter than it thaws out than it starts over again.
When I was a kid we would go to Canada a lot I have family there and it would be April it would be cold real bad and lots of snow..we would jump off the roof of the garage into the drifts.
Its not like that any more. very little snow and nothing on the bush roads.
Cheers Mate! its 5:30AM here, no sleep, I know I will be up for the next 3 days.
