Special People.

Late this afternoon I noticed a country fire service over the back fence of the camping ground here.  When looking I first thought the cow I saw there must have been hurt and a rescue was going on, but apparently she was trying to give birth.  She’d been there since early morning I  was told, and it was now 5 pm.  Poor thing, it gets dark here now  not long after 5,  and the cold air certainly comes in very quickly also early evenings now.   I hope she managed to have her calf not too long after, and they’re both ok.  There are 4 calves over there at present and I love watching them run around and play with each other.  Quite a sight to have at your backyard.  One of the bulls there is absolutely massive, and I hope to get a photo of him soon.

Tea last night was a  really lovely suprise with a knock on the van door,  my neighbours had sent me in a beautiful home cooked meal to have, and I have to say she’s a far better cook than me.  I hope to get the recipe from her the next time I see her, it was sausages with stir fried vegies in a sweet and sour sauce with rice, and it was DELICIOUS.  Both her and her husband have health issues, and with a couple of kids to care for also and their pets as well, it was pretty special.


  1. Cool photo, and the description of the meal sounds amazingly good… you’re making me hungry, good thing it’s almost lunch here!

    • Mmm that one I wasn’t sharing it was great. Hope you still enjoyed your lunch though. Have to check out all the art you’ve been doing lately I’ve missed, know it will be good.

  2. Hope the cow and calf are alright. I am glad you have more caring people around you.

    • She wasn’t there in the morning so am hoping mother and baby are in a warm shed there somewhere as was freezing here last night. I hope the birth went ok for her. Yes there are some lovely people around, just had a visit from the older man from the other end of the park, we sat and chatted for couple of hours in the warmth of the van and ignored the bitter cold wind outside.
