FINE AND MILD. WENT TO WORK AT 6:00 AND DROVE OUT TO YANDERRA¹. TERRY² TOLD ME I COULD HELP LINDA WHEN I WASN’T PICKING UP LUGS SO BETWEEN US WE PICKED 10 LUGS AND WORKED 10 ½ HOURS. SEAN AND LUC CAME OVER TO OUR PLACE³ FOR TEA. WE PIGGED OUT ON SAUSAGES, PEAS AND SPUDS AND A BOTTLE OF BERNADINO SPUMANTE*.

¹Another cherry orchard a few kilometres from the Cherry Hill orchards.

³I endearingly refer to our tent camp as “our place.”
*A species of nasty, cheap, fizzy wine often referred to as Spewmante!
