Happy Father's Day


This is my father Allan - 30/05/1934 - 05/10/2006

The photo above was taken in the Autumn of 2006

This is a Father's Day tribute to him.

August has been dry and cold.
 The long range forecast is for a hot, dry summer.
After the last two la nina years a fruit grower could only wish.
