way out west


This is my late Grandmother and her children in a paddock somewhere near Hamilton Victoria in the early 1930's. The photo is from her album and is labelled 'Smithy', so I assume it is Sir Charles Kingsford Smith. One of those happy children is my father, now 87, and right now he is unbearable.
Today when I took his car for service, the garage people told me that back in January when he told them I was coming to take care of him, they thought I would only last a week.
just sayin'. *stomps off looking for empathy*
