Words and picture from Louise Thomas.
"It's often as hard to get one of these sitting down as it is to get one in flight. Welcome swallow/warou (Hirundo neoxena). The pink background is caused by the colourful pink aquatic weeds on the fresh water pond at Pauatahanui. Usually hawking in a circuit over the pond, one of the swallows rested briefly to have a good stretch on a stick poking out of the water."
This should not be too tough. What are your favourite memories of this gentleman and his store?
Just had Verhaart and Laffey plumbers here to change the pigtail on my gas cylinder. The plumber was here 10 minutes and the cost of the pigtail was $24.90
The bill came to 159.74.
How can they justify that???
