A Griffith Sunday

Today began with a very sleepy start encouraged by a few Jim Beams last night and the fact my cleaning work today had been cancelled! However on my way back from the bathroom this morning I was asked if I wanted a few hours work and so ended up packing oranges on a farm just… Continue reading A Griffith Sunday

The rain in Griffith falls mainly on the backpacker. 

Playing a little cards in the garden yesterday, we move to the shed to avoid a few drops of rain...Turned out to be the biggest storm I've EVER experienced, lightning striking on all sides, thunder cracking so loud and long it hurt you ears and rain that within a few minutes had flooded into the… Continue reading The rain in Griffith falls mainly on the backpacker.
