Old Boys

I mentioned the old trucks at Trunkey Creek yesterday.  Here they are.

Also I promised to show you Carcoar over at 100 towns.  It's a great little town, well worth a visit.


  1. A pair of beauties Joan .... I'd love to take that truck for a spin down the highway.

  2. LOL - with this title they really remind me of two grumpy old men, sitting on a bench, watching the world go by ... the red one a little bit more grumpy than the other one.

  3. Yes, I agree with Martina. The red one looks as though someone has socked him one in the snoz!

  4. These are great! It looks like they still have another few decades of rusting away to go.

The tiny camera's tiny battery ran out so I went back to my reading. The note with the sculpture says "This bronze and copper sculpture contrasts a series of small human forms with the architectural weight of on oversize staircase. The artwork has a philosophical aspect by reflecting on the effect of reading on the spirit - 'the more I read the smaller I feel'." Crikey, I dunno about you but if reading made me feel like that I'd stop.

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog -  My Bright Field  - to record the delights of my new life adventure. If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.


Is that a Coolibah tree beside the abandoned house? Every Australian knows about Coolibah trees because the bush ballad Waltzing Matilda is nigh on our unoffical national anthem but most of us live nowhere near the inland where they grow. Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong, Under the shade of a Coolibah tree, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me. Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me.
