DAY 3: WODONGA – Friday 25 December – Xmas Day

Xmas Day was essentially a private family affair – so pics. There were 16 of us for Xmas lunch, most from my brother-in-law’s and his sister’s side of the family, with grandparents, parents, brothers, sisters, aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews – and me. It was terrific fun – so much laughter – and stories.

So – the answer to the first ‘death & murder’ challenge is (courtesy of one of my brother-in-law’s relatives who happens to have an animal science degree, and currently works in a dairy more on that later). One of the best ways of concealing a dead body is to cut open a dead horse and put the human body inside and then bury it. My sister and I had our jaws on the floor when that particular ghoulish piece of country mayhem was told. Shocked – and then gales of giggling. Naughty – but funny.

That night was a full-moon, and whilst cloudy it didn’t fail to disappoint and was stunning – and in a way complimentary to the macabre country stories were had heard that day and night.
