VV HOT  Woke up at 6:30 feeling much better after a good night’s sleep and the swelling of my on my jaw was much less.  Got up and showered and had our brekkie and settled down to read for an hour or so.

After lunch Linda and I cranked up the old bomb and went over to Mena Park¹.  We went out with Tim² to the back of the place to fix a burst pipe. Man it was hot,  and when we got back to the house after looking at the woolshed it was like a furnace.  We had 350 mils of Fosters³ and lost 450 mils of sweat in there! Drove home and photographed a group of nosy emus.

¹Mena Park station is another large sheep and cattle station which, at that time, was owned by my relations, the Vail family.
²Tim Vail, my cousin from Mena Park was manager at Evora.
³Fosters larger is an iconic (but not very nice) Australian beer.
