WOULD anyone like to share Cocoa with me? A few weeks ago I rescued a little dog from the traffic in Harden and after failing to find any hint of from where he came, I took him to the council office and they then sent him off to the pound.
After about four weeks he remained unclaimed so I rescued him a second time. He was identified from the microchip as being a ten-year-old Shih Tsu named Cocoa. So now I have a dog. And only last week I said that common sense sometimes comes with age.
If the previous owner is still looking for him he/she could phone me. Cocoa has been cleaned up and looks an entirely different little dog.
There were a few battle scars when the travellers to the Chatswood skin clinic arrived home last Wednesday evening. This has become quite a regular trip for the locals, originally organised by Jan Giles.
Ethel Lee has returned from a visit with her sister at Lakes Entrance. I guess it would not have been any warmer there than here. What a cold couple of weeks we have had. The bills will be a bit of a shock for those who rely on electricity for heating.
A few hardy souls turned up for the Ambrose on Sunday for trophies donated by Michael and Simone Seres. Mark Sykes and Tony Barton were the winners. It must have been really cold as Bart donned a pair of joggers to replace his usual golf footwear, thongs.
On the program for next Saturday is an 18 hole four ball best ball for Paul and Anne Glover’s trophies. Mostly these foursome events are changed because of insufficient numbers and often changed to nine holes as that seems to be the general preference, so maybe interested players should check it out before they leave home if the event makes any difference to them.
Sunday’s events will be nine holes stroke comps.
School breaks up for the holidays this week and will return on Tuesday, July 17, as Monday is a staff development day.
Last week Miss Darby and Mrs Jeans, two teachers from “Beyond the Line”, were shown how things work in rural areas by having visits to farms and and attempting to shear a sheep as well as observing class room activities.
Mrs Beth Elliot will be taking Miss Cooper’s class for the last week of this term and the first week of term three while Miss Cooper takes some leave.
When the kids come back Mr Chown will have the new garden bed ready for planting and it is planned that the veggies grown can be used in a cooking program later in the year.
Principal, Mr Bennett has been notified that the solar panel installation has been approved and the National Schools Solar Project works will begin sometime in the future.
The students have been reminded that they must walk directly to school and home again with no little detours or stops on the way. They are reminded again about the school uniform. Jump Rope for Heart was s held on Friday. That should have warmed them up a bit.
No doubt some people will be telling us that they can notice the days getting longer. They certainly are not getting any warmer. It has just begun to rain again
Until next time
