Yeah. It s sad, and imagine how his children felt.?
These were cute -as- buttons Maltese/ shitzu crosses. Feisty gorgeous, but they were never allowed out of that compound area, into the larger property. Earlier in the piece, I said he ought to let them He explained, they always bolt. They run away.

I didn't comment on the obvious. :roll
YEAH... :sad

…. Now the boy gets to tend the piglets, but I don't see much interaction going on.

I go and talk to them over the fence, now and then. I want my dog to know, now that she's sort of accustomed to them, .. that I like them. After all she is a 35-40 kg bred to the bone pigdog, that I rescued.
It was quite hilarious actually.. the day the piglets arrived. I was having a nice snooze -in, but the dog starting barking this really strange bark.
She has different barks for different circumstances, and this one was ... weird. It had a WTF ? WTF is this? sound. :bgrin

She's great with horses, etc, but I don't think she'd ever heard or smelled piggies before. After a while I got out of bed checked her out through the window, and she was definitely barking at something next door, but she kept backing-up , strange bark, then seemed drawn forward again.
So OK I put on some outside gear and went out and had a look.

:bgrin :bgrin :roll yep two little piggies now resided in the structure I'd noticed him building over the last week or so. Two little piggies, cute as can be. One white with black patches, one a ginger. :bgrin

Poor little piggies. :sad


Umm I feel compelled to contact the original senior officer who dealt with the tree-felling, and see what he says. I don't think Council will allow him to relocate these sweethearts into the protected area. I don't know, of course.

Tomorrow is another day.

And so I did.

And I didn't lay a further complaint. But I can, and perhaps I should. Not sure yet, depends on what he does about it.His pet piggies are too close.

I may have to approach him again soon, because he said he was waiting on COUNCIL APPROVAL TO MOVE THEM... down into the really protected area.. "where those two big dead gum trees are". :roll :roll :roll :roll :roll :roll (Porky Pie)

The fuckwit doesn't have a clue.

Went to talk to the piggies today... I think they are gone.

No sight or sound of them, and it just felt empty.

Poor little fuckers.. hope they get a good home.

SIGH :sad

Today he was clearing away some of the native flora he had chainsawed previously. Loading stuff on his trailer. IN the Primary Area of Importance .
Then the chainsaw came out again. I watched ..he was cutting up the trees he'd felled before. He has to. So he can replant them.

I hate the sound so I went and did a bit of necessary shopping.

BUT... the Vandals are at it again. :sad

I got home and all was quiet, and was about wrapping up a good old natter with my best friend,..... we're meeting for lunch tomorrow.... when I heard a motor zooming around. Late afternoon.

Yep. While I was talking I went out to see .. oh oh ... my neighbour tearing around the circuit he'd cleared, in a dirt buggy. Full roll cage.

Seen it before ... before the Council got involved, and I had advised him, friendly like, he couldn't do that..... he didn't listen. :mad

FUCK.



FUCK FUCK FUCK… I'm afraid I started yelling ( I asked my friend, can you hear these fucking cunts..?)

So Using my command voice I called them fucking CUNTS , more than once. My friend said I'll see you tomorrow.


I rarely get ANGRY.. it isn't conducive to harmony. But OH BOY. :roll
I took hold and ramped in and went inside. They continued to roar around in the buggy, raising dust, but not my ire.

Council buddy gonna get an earful on Monday.

Monday was an Ekka Holiday here... :roll but he still answered his work number. He was really willing to listen. Jeez

I'd forgotten it was a Hol until he said he'd advise Sheree when he got back to work. :emb

So anyway...………… no further contact, and I don't expect it really. I may get a call but I'm not holding my breath.

I think my neighbours will end up getting their way... :sad regardless of the Law. I haven't given up, but I don't get informed of anything because of Privacy Legislation. So I'll only know, if he starts chopping down more trees to house the pigs. Because the piggies are back. In the pen too close to my water supply. And fuck they've grown.

I hope I am wrong. The last 20 years of my life has been pretty focussed on protecting this last remnant of wildness in an increasingly populated area.

If I am forced to live with dirt buggies ripping up irreplaceable habitat, I think I'm baling, all the way out of here.

I'd agree. But I've never been there.

Beats the mainland tho. I think I'd like to live around Whitemark, isn't that on King Island.?

ahhh ok. I think heading south.. like SOUTH SOUTH, may be a viable option.

I've thought about selling up and going back to my Homeland ..NZ.
The Shaky Isles.

The Land of the Long White Cloud.


Only been back a couple of times since childhood, for visits to family, AND...

I could SMELL the difference. It was like breathing in fresh air, when I de-planed at Wellington.

The Pine smells, the earth smells, were notable to me above the smells of jet fuel and wet concrete.

It smelled SO familiar...…

If you do sell up and move, have a big wall cavity, stuff it full of insulation, 35 x 140mm studs instead of 35 x 70mm.
