A weekday in the country

I can report that the standard of milkshakes in regional Victoria is at a very acceptable level.

This is one of the major conclusions from a TFC fact finding trip on the glorious V/Line service to Kyneton.

In addition to the close inspection of strawberry flavoured dairy products, I also held extended urban-rural interface communication exchange sessions with Tim Harrison, my erstwhile co-presenter and an exuberant son of the soil.

And very nice too.

I can heartily recommend a “smash & grab” raid to the wide open spaces that surround Melbourne.

The cobwebs are blown away and there is always the chance to pick up a surprising bargain or some such … ahem.

As a fan of train travel from a very early age – I am old enough to remember steam trains – there is no finer way to view the countryside.

And for a totally & hopelessly non-son of the soil such as I, it is the most painless way of getting a rural fix.

I can report that Tim has replaced compiling “Newsless” & finding annoyingly beguiling tunes for Saturday night revels with digging up things, planting other things and designing a chook house which will surely end up in the glossy magazines.

A lovely time was had by all.

A trip to the country, whatever the day of the week, is always a hoot.
