The photos today aren't of orchids for a change!
So many usually dry creeks & gullies
flowing with water this year

I zoomed about getting Dad's wheelie-walker sorted. Last night the other brake cable handle assembly had failed. It was the left one a couple of weeks ago, which was repaired. But this time it was the right one. And the bint at the shop we bought it from only 6 months ago crapped on about how she shouldn't be replacing this, as it was probably Dad's over-zealous application of the brakes that made the steel cable snap, but she would this once, etc etc. I let her finish her rant, thanked her for the new wheelie-walker, then walked out. It was her choice to replace old for new rather that do a repair. She was just venting, I know. But telling me that an 83 year old bloke who weighs a whisker over 60kg has been too tough on a purpose-built apparatus was just bollocks. We still have 6 months warranty remaining, so she had better hope that Dad does not have Weeties for brekkie!
