The bridge wars continue with the "Wombat Bridge" sign being removed as well as the posts it was mounted on. Hope the next move isn't to remove the bridge.
There has been a running battle at Captains Flat over the naming of a small wooden bridge. The official name is "Silverhills Bridge" and the Council installed a sign saying same. Some local persons are devoted to calling the bridge "Wombat Bridge". So we have had council sign up, council sign down, wombat sign up and wombat sign down. Now council has come out with the fighting words " I really hope the person who has removed the sign is NOT a member of our close little community and they live in some scumbag part of Canberra where they belong" effectively insulting everyone. Must admit we are quietly rooting for the wombat side but it could get ugly.
When we first got Dorpers we were in a drought and they just out performed everything around. The good years made us forget how hardy and adaptable they are. Now, we are dry again and they are just thriving, fat and content, no worm to worry them and the heat is no problem. Maybe for a little while it is the Dorpers chance to shine again and show what makes them such a welcome addition to our country.
