A FRIEND dropped by the Billabong on Sunday afternoon to help pick the olives off the big tree, share a drink, grill a steak, watch the footy and, just in passing, note that Victoria's trout season ends on the Queens Birthday weekend. One thing led to another but mostly to the garage, where the car was soon conveying a pair of overgrown schoolboys on a wag to places north and mountainous. The weather today was cold, but the fishing hot -- and there will be more of it tomorrow. Now, back to that comfy chair, the second bottle's last drops and the pleasure of a open fire.
Posting should resume on Wednesday.
