Hmm,
Today I am grateful for,
Our youngest, Jack, well he is having a Gap year before he goes to Uni to do his Bachelor of Science, he has applied and was offered work on a local Macca farm, $32 an hour, not full time, on call. He chased up this job, he contacted the farm owner, pretty proud of the lad.
This will contribute to his other part time job.
That makes all three of our kids working, they have done this themselves.
Happy days.

On a side note, they are many out of work atm, I'm just proud as.

I am Grateful for knowing a Man that,  as rough as he was, he did everything for others.
He called a Spade a Spade, he would give you the shirt off his back, then call you a dickhead for not having a shirt.
25 odd years is only a short time to of know him, 6 of those years were as a committee member of The Lawrence Rodeo Committee, and being involved in our local council Sports Committee.
Speaking with others at his memorial service at The Maclean Showground that was packed,  their spent time with him on other committees(Maclean Show, Grafton Show, Camp Draft, The Royal Easter Show & Brisbane's Ekka), it's not until you hear their personal accounts of his life, that you realise how much time he gave to others.
RIP Cowboy.
You will be missed.

I am Grateful today for knowing an amazing woman, Jean.
Last night, along with her sister, three children(who we spent many a night at the pub with), 6 Grand children & 3 Great Grand Children, we helped her celebrate her 90th Birthday.
Jean is like a second mother to many of us that spent our mid teens to mid 20's in Byron
Held at The Suffork Park Hotel, it was like a reunion of types.
Had a Rum and milk with her, laughed and cried with her over mate that are no longer with us.
11pm, we were asked to leave, a dozen of us could of chatted all night.
Every time we visit family, we always visit Ma, cause if she got wind that you had been in town & didn't stop in, boy, you copped it next time.
Family, really.
:)

Well, what a week.
We've come throught it pretty good.
The Kids are safe & dry, I might not of been able to go to work, but we are in a better situation then others.
Today our RFS Brigrade will start hosing off mud on the roads, helping those that got water through their homes and properties.
Take care Swaggers.

Just spent 6 hours hosing mud off the road with our RFS Brigrade, after the flood waters had dropped near our post office.
One of our other trucks, cleaned up around the Lawrence Genral Store.
A great bunch of people to work alongside of, And a great communitty to be apart of.
Love my Town/Communitty
