Judy, I remember when an Uncle died. He didnít have any children and his wife had pre deceased him. He left his house and contents to my Dad. They were living on the farm still so we said we would clean it out. It really hurt to throw their photos away. We kept the ones where we knew people but the rest went to the tip.

Yes photo collections end up being a big job for a lot of people.  Today has been an inside day, rain glorious rain has arrived for our gardens so Iíve spent 8 hours going through more recipe print outs and magazine cuttings after finding a whole heap of them in a cupboard in the third bedroom. The paper I now have to recycle for more printing on the blank side would be the equivalent of 3 or 4 packets of printing paper.

Photos, same problems here. Bit more complicated. Dad gave movie camera to neighbour who was on the first Aussie flight into Hiroshima . He took photos. Later died as result of exposure. I offered the movies to Australian archives but the said they wouldnít consider them unless we had them converted to videos.
Also Dad won several home movie awards. We have these still on 8 MM film. I really need to have these converted to video. Iím in several as a small child.
More to today. Friend  has been given a TMX 5.  Knows nothing. Canít even turn it on. DIL came today and set up face time and I was able to get her going.  She is so excited.

Itís in my genes K Atie, Mum was the same.
Chookie youíll get around to the converting into videos one day, maybe DS could help you in that regard.    Donít the consultants give you a home demo these days, is that because of Covid?  I think you might be receiving a few more phone calls from your friend LOL.

Family out finishing off harvest last day fingers crossed. Have cleaned out kennel as it was on cement and found lots of tiny ants and creatures underneath. Washing kitten blanket too . They have grown so much and adventure up trees now . Always close to each other . Too hot to do much hoping no paddock ban before we finish , always lots to do ... harvester has to be cleaned itís huge and blow out all the dust . Lucky itís all nearly at the main property so moving field bins ,fire truck ,fuel tank ,semi, chaser bin tractor and Ute all easier to put away . DS sleep pattern is questionable and he will need the week to get back into a normal routine.  DH always takes awhile to reset his day .. going into shearing too soon , thatís another story shearing team disbanded and no shearerís !!

Chookie I feel disgusted with the Australian archives. Such valuable footage.
KAtie if it isn’t one thing on a farm it’s another. Our seas was earlier than yours so we had a good space between harvest and shearing. Have the teams been disbanded because of Covid?

We had a car run today. We took an air conditioned car as it is so hot. Most club members did. One member who owns Wooleen station in the Murchison https://wooleen.com.au/
Came in his 1935 Rolls Royce. When he does this we call him The Squatter. His son runs the station now.

Housework for most of this cooler day. I also need to fill the biscuit tin. I thought I may make some lamingtons as it's cooler and Australia Day is coming up.

Did a little night driving with DD , saw a few kangaroos and into our drive ... agapanthus on one side that DH threatens to pull out , yes you guest it a tiger snake DD was driving so it escaped but I was now dark and I had no idea if it was up in the wheel hub or not ( no I did not look either ) rescued kittens and Tommy with DS . They were not far from the snake really . So I locked them up for the night in the boiler room were they sleep eat etc .. kittens playing on the lawn this morning ,they too can get out the window like their mum . So warm at the moment ,will not water as I think thatís what has brought the snake close to house .

I did a really good clear out of the fridge today, gone is anything I donít use these days which meant lots of jars and bottles not making it back.

An early trip to the supermarket this morning to beat the heat.
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.
