On the way

West Wyalong, Australia

We have just arrived in West Wyalong where we will camp for the night. We have travelled to Jerrilderie where there is a very strong prescence of Ned Kelly. We walked the streets of Jerilderie and admired the history notes at each point where Ned had been. This included the famous 'Jerilderie Letter' which he wrote and wanted to be published to let the people of the district know his cause but instead it was not published until 50 years after his demise. From Jerilderie we went to Naranderra where we had Sunday lunch in a local Aussie Pub which served Chinese food only. It was very nice and they provided for Vegetarians so were 'sweet' as Riley would say. Caitlin cons us into stopping at every playground so she is in heaven. We did our laundry at the Laundromat in Naranderra and met some seasoned 'grey nomads' (14 months on the road and at least another 12 months until they settled) who provided us with substantial tips regarding our journey. We camped over at a road stop with a very flash Winebago but I didnt think our vehicle faired too badly. On waking and having breakfast we started on our trip to West Wyalong but were way laid when Caitlin had an urgent toilet need. We pulled of the highway and entered a small town where she promptly didnt need to go anymore - I am not sure if this was before or after she saw the playground -hmm. I went to the toilet as I always do and when I got back in the Truck I heard the tyre hissing. I alerted Glenn and it turned out that one of the trusty rivets which had fixed much of our truck had in fact pierced the tube. Fortunately we were able to get this repaired and then another matter which had been concerning Glenn regarding Linkages??? (too mechanical for me) was sorted at the same time. So the 'phantom toilet need' had proved useful. We are getting into the home schooling - Caitlin wants to do it all the time but Riley takes a little bit more encouragement. I must away Regards to all MJ

Send a Compliment

Everyone knows you don't do any homework when you have the substitute teacher.

Well obviously you have never had Mr. "G" or Mrs. 'M" who will not tolerate any nonsense -heads down and bums up

Gee Riley, this holiday sounds 'fun'!

In years to come when Riley is a Supreme Court Justice he will thank Mr G and Mrs M for their tough approach. (a la Bart and Homer)
