Today I was invited to a meeting of the Narrabri Garden Society by a lady who was introduced to me by Jenni (owner of this property). What a lovely day! There were about 25 ladies there, we had morning tea and they asked me to give a talk on house sitting. The hostess also provided a table on which to display my jewellery and several ladies bought something! I took a photo of the President and three of the ladies.
After that I drove out to the Sawn Rocks in the Mt. Kaputar National Park, took lots of photos and videos as you can see. There was a lot of cloud cover so it was quite cool.
Yesterday's sunset here was just fabulous as you will see from the photos. Most sunsets are like that actually, but the shafts of light were especially good.
I finally got around to sending an email to the Ozhitch people telling them about the problem I had at Tenterfield in December. In my email I detailed what happened, mentioned that it cost $300 to get the hitch fixed and suggested that they might recall all the hitches in that batch and check them.
Well, what a response. A guy call Kim O'Brien called me and couldn't have been more helpful. He asked for my bank details so that he could give me the $300 it cost to get fixed PLUS another $100 on top! He asked me to take some photos of the repaired hitch which I did and emailed them to him. I also gave him the name of the NRMA guy and the name of the firm that repaired the hitch so that he could talk to them about what they saw when they examined/repaired it.
He wants to give me a new hitch so we are talking about where/when that can happen. There is no immediate problem with it but the repair is not quite to his liking (I understand what he means but it's too hard to explain here) so he wants to install a new one to be sure that nothing bad will happen in the future (that would make a nice change).
The Patrol is not blowing any smoke now, so I will have to see what the fuel usage is like once the van is attached and I'm on the road.
Nothing planned for tomorrow, so I might have to finally wash the Patrol :-(
Love to all
