ANOTHER bleak, bitterly cold Monday morning after a bleak, bitterly cold weekend. A good time to have such a huge increase in the electricity prices, is it not?
Perhaps the locals could head over to the Top Shop for a great cup of coffee with Libby and Sam. It seemed the shop was again headed for closure when Libby Elliot decided to take it on with the help of local lass Sam Longmore, whose previous experience in cafe life has been invaluable in the few days they have been open. Together Libby and Sam hope to provide good value in home cooked meals seven days a week and coffee and snacks always available.
Binalong is well provided with excellent food. Tom of course at the Royal Tara, Julie at the Hotel Binalong and Besties’ now open at the Black Swan and now Libby and Sam at the Top Shop. No one should be complaining about being hungry or too tired too cook, just go along and let someone else do the work. Good luck to them all.
Coco has settled in after a bit of a stand off with the cat and it seems I have another shadow for life. One step behind me at all times. His registration papers say he is 13 years old. How could anyone just abandon him or lose him after so many years. He is a very affable little dog and I am sure he was not mistreated in his previous life so it is strange that no one claimed him.
Chris and Colleen Glover have returned to the cold climate after spending several days in the glow of the sun in Darwin where they met up with John and Cathie Lee who have paused to work there as part of their odyssey around Australia. Maybe we should all move north. Or hope for more global warming.
Paul, Anne and Sally Glover went even a bit further afield to enjoy the sun. They have returned from holidaying in Fiji.
Wilma Toogood had a birthday last week and I believe Merv Spencer has or is about to celebrate his 90th birthday. And Merv can show some of the younger folk a thing or two about golf and bowls.
Our ladies bowlers had a great day at the Cowra ladies’ president’s day last week. The sun shone and the green was good, the ladies were friendly, the food was great and after a good start, we still came last. Well someone has to fill that position. As far as I know that is the first time a team has been invited to go to Cowra.
Not very exciting weather for the school holidays. Parents probably need that activity web site to keep the kids occupied; I don’t think many of them would be outside in the present conditions.
A team of athletes attended the PSSA carnival in Cootamundra before the end of term and Matthew Thompson managed to tie for the 11 year old boy’s championship.
The school received feed back from the Beyond the Line Pre Service Teachers that they had enjoyed a wonderful experience at the school and in the district. In fact they thought some of their friends had been quite envious of their Binalong experience.
Miss Cooper has thanked everyone for their cards and flowers following her recent surgery and assures the children that she is doing well.
The first day of Term 3 is Tuesday, July 16.
Until next time
