Abandoned …

A quiet drive through the suburban Frankston can reveal a few unusual sights. But this takes the cake! I just hope that the current affairs shows don’t get hold of this story – Tiger lion’ around Frankston childcare centre.

CannibalRabbit Family at Lake Eildon 2011

After the Alexandra Show, where Monty got Best of Breed, we headed up to the Lake Eildon [^] dam wall at Eildon. After a wet year the lake is almost full, something that has only happened six times in the past 50 years [^].

Furphy Tank End

Furphy Tank  End

I spotted an Australian icon at the Kyabram Show – a Furphy Water Tank [^] end.

The Furphy water cart was an early exercise in branding. One of the key parts of the brand was the “Good, better, best – never let it rest – till your good is better – and your better best” seen here at the bottom of the end.

The Pitman shorthand [^] across the middle of the tank says “Water is the gift of God but beer and whiskey are concoctions of the Devil, come and have a drink of water”. The additional Pitman section between Shepparton and the middle band has Billy Hughes [^] slogan “Produce and populate or perish” – one of the main concerns in Australia in the middle of World War 2.

The water cart gave rise to the term “Furphies” – information of a dubious nature, some might even say rumours!

Monty – 1st Place Junior Dog

Susan and Monty have just come back from a win at the Royal Melbourne Show, the biggest dog show in the southern hemisphere. Together they were awarded 1st Place in the Junior Dog Class for Welsh Corgi (Pembroke). Congratulations to them both.
