A hot day and a broken trickle irrigation pipe. Like a magnet for thirsty birds.
Another day, in another place I was in the hot seat.
The defendant’s box in the historic Cossack* Courtroom.
Sorry, Guv, yer Worshipfullness. It musta bin de demon Rum wot made me do it. I won’t do it again, Promise, Me Lud, Yer Worshipfulness.
Wot d’ye mean? By the neck? NOOoooooooooooooo
*Cossack – on the North West Coast of Western Australia. The first port between Geraldton and Darwin during the 1800’s. Fishing, pearling, turtle soup and gold exports at the mouth of the Harding River. Now silted up and replaced by Point Sampson.
