BUSY DAY IN THE SHED Chloe Adler, who is a photographer from West Wyalong in NSW, sent in this photo captured on old fashioned black and white film, which is her favourite way to capture farm life. Cloe’s work can be found at www.facebook.com/chloejasmine. photography MERINO TOPS ARE TOPS! AWI's Digital User Experience Designer, Penelope Kendall, and Corporate Affairs Manager, Emma Gittoes, were inspired by AWI's Live & Breathe campaign (see page 6) to put their Merino wool tops to the test when walking the 45km Six Foot Track in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, NSW. Penelope and Emma report the Merino tops performed excellently! BEN THE CHILDCARE LAMB Christina Mowbray, who is the former director of the Gladys Smith Early Learning Centre in Millicent, 400km south of Adelaide in South Australia, says the Centre every year raised a lamb, but Ben was one of the most loved. He would go down the slippery dip with the children and at morning tea he would sit on the mat with the children to have his apple. Making up the milk mixture was an early education in maths because if the milk wasn’t right Ben wouldn’t drink it. He had a great personality and lived to the good age of 18. 79 READERS' PHOTOS NYNGAN SUNSET Monique Wye of Nyngan, NSW, posted this evening photo on Instagram (Neek72) of a flock ready for the next day’s shearing.
