An Inspiring Life
At recent school visits during Book Week I’ve been showing photos of inspiring places and characters from my past, many of which make appearances in Chicken Stu. I thought I’d post those photos here online for those interested readers out there.
This is me when I was in primary school. Adorable!!!!!!!! This is before the days when Mum would take to our hair with clippers but leave the fringe starting at the top of our heads. It’s a look that never really caught on.
This is Goondah, the farm on which Gwen and Col live. It’s a lot greener here than it is in Summer. Here also is the entrance to the mine on our property – Dad is horrified we ever crawled in.
Some of the animals were based on real animals, including Tom the vicious and vengeful lamb and Hank the moodiest dog in the world.
And finally, my favourite picture of all time … this is from my camping trip through Italy with my wife. As you can see, we are natural campers.
