There's no stopping some people

When the council put out the Road Closed sign beside the driveway to my son's house, they were pretty serious about it.  They wanted that road to stay closed.  

 Others did not agree with them. This guy put the barrier back when he returned back down the road a few minutes later.  Guess he couldn't get through to where he wanted to go.  And, yes, I do know it was a he. 

I took advantage of the road being closed by going for a walk along it.  

Saw a few things I've just glimpsed when I've been driving past- like the neighbours stock yards. 

 One neighbour obviously has never heard of the Farmers' Rule that you do not put your second rate or sick stock in the roadside paddock for everyone to see.   Not only does it look like this ram has had a good dose of fly strike but it looks decidedly evil.  I'm not going to explain what fly strike is.  Yuck. If you are curious, it's explained here.


  1. Hello Pauline,

    Maybe the owner of that flyblown sheep put up the signs!!!

    Hope they fix the road problem.

    Happy days.

  2. It is wonderful countryside you live in.
    The fourth picture is a beauty.

  3. Wonderful photographs, superb views. I am greeting

  4. I'm curious as to why the road was closed: I don't recognise it.


I love to know who's visiting. Leave me a sign!
