Little Red Tiara: checking out a Japanese classic 

You all know I’m a car nut – have been since I was knee-high to a Matchbox car. Well, today on the phone my man told me about a little red car that I should go and see, so after finishing my lunch I did just that. 

This early ’60s Toyota Tiara has been owned by a local mechanic for a decade or so, but he finally decided to let it go to someone who might actually get around to restoring it. Happily, it was purchased from a nearby town, so hopefully we’ll see it around again. 

Check out the dash…push button auto! But where are the turn indicators? This tricky bit of design actually has them integrated with the horn ring. Beep beep tick tack!

In Dire Straits (we got to move these colour TVs)


We got to install microwave ovens

Custom kitchen deliveries

We got to move these refrigerators

We got to move these colour TVs 

This is one of my favourite shots from our recent fog day out – as soon as I saw the TV, this Dire Straits song Money for Nothing flooded my brain. I was glad to have worn rubber boots, so I could wade into the river. 

On Pajero Road: cobwebs and dew drops 

Sundays are great for drives in the country, even when one lives in the country! This morning a thick fog had cloaked the landscape, and stayed until after midday, so we meandered along gravel tracks, stopping many times for photos.
