Latest Series of 8ight images and this weeks theme…
Yesterday – One of 8ight
A new series of 8ight begins and the theme is Yesterday.
Yesterday I came up with this idea for a new series of eight images.
It’s all about yesterday.
Yesterday morning I walked down to the General Store that also doubles up as the Post Office. (We get mail three times a week)
But yesterday when I asked for my mail that I could see leaning on top of the pigeon holeI I was told to come back on Monday due to the fact that on Saturday the Post Office is closed.
Yesterday I wasn’t very happy to be told that. I live in a small outback town for gods sake! Woopity Woop Woop located in the Savannah region of far north Queensland population 65 plus a few Utes, Pig Hunters, snakes and too many Grey Nomads.
Please give me my bloody mail that I can see within inches of your left earlobe all you have to do is reach out and hand it over. ” No sorry” Was the reply and I thought Coogee Post Office was bad.
I went home and had a coffee.
In the afternoon I volunteered my services to help out the local Bush Fire Brigade with a bit of backburning around the town.
Yesterday was my first time ever as a bush fireman.
Yesterday I discovered just how hot the fires are and yesterday I discovered that when the wind changes fires can escape!
Yesterday I also discovered just how much rubbish and scrap is hidden amongst the grass that we had to burn off.
Just how many cars can a small town leave behind? Tyres, huge circular saw blades, shoes, bottles you name it’s all there or was!
Now as a Land Rover enthusiast I was thrilled to come across an old Series IIA but disheartened upon hearing that next day we were to burn that area.
So anyway later that evening I went armed with camera to take some pictures and a screwdriver to remove the front grill and the engine plates from the Series IIA.
Yesterday evening I watched day three of the Lords test match.
Luckily for me the whole series is being shown on a free to air channel called SBS. So even living up here in the middle of nowhere I don’t have to subscribe to pay TV to watch the Ashes.
Sadly my English brethren back home do and if you were to ask me what I thought of that I would say “That is bloody ridiculous” Don’t even ask me what I think of England playing a test match in Wales!!
Yesterday evening I was very happy beer in hand watching Australia bowled out for a little over 200 runs!!
