I remember asking one much loved friend what he was planning to do the next day; exhausted from fighting fires, this legislative lawyer told me the day would be spent on his big plow cleaning up the family's fields of dead cattle and horses. The stench and the flies was overwhelming.
I have lost contact with this family I loved so much; they live(d) back in the Snowy River area mountains, far from civilization. I can only pray they are all right but I know that if those fires back then wreaked so much havoc on their rural existence, things must be very difficult for them at this time.
My fiance's winery was never rebuilt; the forests were no longer suitable for sustainable logging. Their orchards were burnt out; they all had to scatter to cities.
Yes, a FOLDING CHAIR! Funniest thing ever.

Thank you, Mr. James Perloff!
