    1. I see from the website that you can put money in him. Must have to put into the mouth past that dribble.

    1. I thought it was fun to focus on the detail instead of the full animal though I do find him rather attractive in the whole too

    1. It is nice to have a fountain or two to show. We don't have a lot of them in the mountains. Our specialty is water falls.

Thinking I would use this for this week’s Taphophile Tragics post I dug a little further into William Lee’s story, it’s a very colonial Australian one. William was born of convict parents, living his childhood years around the Sydney region. In his early 20s he was issued with some government cattle, recommended as a suitable settler and granted 134 acres at Kelso near Bathurst. He was one of the first in the area and did well. A few years later he was granted a ram and an increase in his land to 300 acres. William developed a r
