Hi TC we had greyhounds back in the 60,s a black and white dog called Inky Boy and a beautiful brindle bitch called Cloughreedy Lass like yourself we always thought of them as pets Are you a Pass boy if you are would you remember any of the Brackenridge's ,Berty Lismore Davie or Stuart Wilson ,the Hagan's to name a few Cheers M
I grew up Lake Street and Vernon Street , moved in 63 to Seymour Hill/ Conway , but my Father still kept his Greyhounds in Lake Street.

At the moment I am busy chasing the Cockatoos away from my bird feeder which is intended for the Lorileets  We are in winter so it is cold nothing much is growing , wish we had the rain. Sadly we have water restrictions because of the drought. The rain that swept through South Australia of Victoria will not make it to New South Wales or Queensland.. So there ... You have a reply..My Blue Gum Trees (The Widow Makers) coming Down..

HI TOM,  THANK YOU FOR POSTING AND CHASING COCKATOOS SOUNDS LOVELY. I KNOW THEY ARE A BIG BIRD FROM WATCHING SHOWS.  THEY PROBABLY WANT A FREE FEED. HA.   I'M TAKING IT YOU'RE  LIVING IN AUSSY LAND.   WE HAVE  A FEW ON HERE WHO LIVE THERE TOO. I'VE BEEN WATCHING THE NEWS, IT SEEMS ONE PART IS IN DROUGHT AND THE OTHER IS FLOODED.  I USE TO HAVE A "FRIEND" THERE AND HE DID NOT LIVE THAT FAR FROM  THE BIG FIRE YOU HAD SOME YEARS AGO.  HIS SON WAS A  VOLUNTEER  FIREMAN AND EVEN FOUGHT IN IT.  HE SAID HE AND HIS WIFE WENT TO SEE IT AFTER IT WAS OVER AND NEAR CRIED  BECAUSE OF ALL THE TREES ETC THAT HAD BEEN DESTROYED.   WISH I COULD SEND YOU SOME OF OUR RAIN TOM.  I HOPE YOU WILL COME  ON AGAIN AND LET US KNOW HOW THINGS ARE GOING.  TAKE CARE.  LIZ  XXX

THANKS  FOR POSTING THE PHOTO HW 66. IT'S NICE TO SEE OLD PHOTOS.  I LOVE THEM ESPECIALLY OF PEOPLE.  I THINK OF WHO THEY WERE AND WHAT HAPPENED TO THEM, YOU KNOW STUFF LIKE THAT.  MAYBE SOME OF THEM ARE STILL ALIVE .  I WONDER IF ANYONE WHO SEES THIS PHOTO MIGHT HAVE TAKEN A PINT OR TWO IN THERE HA.  THEY MIGHT LET US KNOW.  LIZ  XXX

HW.66 IT LOOKS LIKE A SHOP I WOULD LOVE TO BROWSE IN, EVEN IF I NEVER BOUGHT ANYTHING. I LOVED THE SMELL OF STORES LIKE THAT.  I BET THAT STORE IS LONG GONE.  THANKS FOR POSTING IT.   LIZ   XXX

Hi Liz, you are correct most women (including my Mother)  went in there and hoked and poked through all kinds of garments for what seemed like ages to me, and yes there was always a distinctive smell in those kind of shops  :)

YOU'RE RIGHT HW.66.  A BIT OF TOPIC, I LOVED OLD BOOK STORES, THE SMELL OF OLD BOOKS  AND  THE WEE STORES THAT SOLD SECOND HAND COMICS, I BET IF WE STILL HAD THEM THEY WOULD BE WORTH A FORTUNE TODAY HA.   LIZ  XXX
