I left a long comment on the last post but I think blogger ate it.

I love the cows as long as they're on the other side of the fence. They don't seem to care where they put their big feet.

Great place.....cows and all....I did read the last post. Do you have an appeal process other than the petition thing? If there are enough names on the petition do they automatically investigate? Can you sue the asses off of the lot of them? Sometimes only money moves mountains and embarasses the crap out of arrogant know-it-alls.

Love Australian countryside. I get out into it as often as i can, even living out here in the Central West. Being a "townie" doesn't always equate getting out among the cow pats. heh heh. Thank you for the pics, Ma'am.

Jahteh - I'm with you re the cows being on the other side of the fence - these are the neighbour's.

Sling - Pastoral ahh you'll have me thinking I'm a true cocky farmer soon'nuff. It is a majic place except in summer

Rosemary - no appeal the Health Care Complaints commission is God - but sometime this week the NSW Coroner's office will tell me if they are going to hold an inwuest into Don's death and if they do - that will show up the HCCC who said there are no problems. Can't sue for money as my solicitor tole me that because he was a Quadriplegic and in his late fifties the cold hard truth is that they would judge his expiry date was up...the curelty and suffering didn't seem to matter - I ned to change the system for the next poor bloody Quad and his family -

Team Gherkin - Its just a beautiful country - I don't think I could live anywhere else - people think its a hard country but I have never found this

Mirk - appealed to the Celt in you huh?

From one country girl to another...it doesn't get any better than this. I would love to wake up early and have a cuppa with you and stroll your property just admiring the beauty. I think we wouldn't even say a word...just listen, look, and watch the day lay out it's finest before us.

Glorious MC!

I love the early morning in the country, and the dusk too.
Gorgeous photos, thanks MC

CS glad you liked it. Its almost a quarter to 6am here right now - have been awake for a couple of hours and waiting the day to begin - I get early morning brainwaves and better to get up and use them than to toss and turn and forget the gifts I am given I reckon - am having that cuppa with you as I write.
Cazzie and Ann O Dyne thanks - Its such a beautiful country isn't it - I bless my ancestors for coming out here during the famine years.
