    Hi Peter.  I really enjoyed your photos of Nonning Station and am wondering if you worked there in 1974.  I used to visit there and have lost contact with someone who was working there in that year.
    Cheers
    Sandy

        If would be great if you can!  The person is a relative....Peter Laverty.  I was rather hoping it was you as you share the same first name.  Thanks so much for your prompt response
        Sandy.

          Sorry Sandy,

          Peter wasn' there when I was there. I'll ask my friend if he knows where he went.

          Do you have any photos of your time on Nonning?

            Unfortunately I don't.  Your photos show the Station as exactly as I remember it however.  Peter L is a family mystery and a tragic one.  He was in a relationship with a first cousin of mine and they had a young child.  Shortly after leaving Nonning, the family moved down to the Naracourte region, where Peter had a road accident and had significant memory loss.  He disappeared from our lives as a result and while I realize that there is a lot to the story I don't know, family members that were around have passed on.  The son is now in his 40's and has mourned the loss of his father most of his life.
            I would love to return to the Gawler ranges as I had a lot of family that worked on the Stations around there.

    Hi to all my friends here :-) ...I sure miss you all and I wanted you to know that I
    have been going through a lot lately and that is why I have not been here.
    My dad passed a away 3 days after Christmas and it has been really hard and
    lots to do and no time for anything else. He was my best friend and is really missed but we do have the hope and know that he is in a better place now and
    really enjoying life in Heaven, -this life down here as the bible says is just a vapor
    that appeareth and is gone, but life in Heaven is eternal for those that believe in
    what Jesus did for us, by dying on the cross for our sins if we but confess our sins and believe and accept what He did for us to go to Heaven.
    You know I wish you always all the best and God's blessing on you all always!
    Your smiley friend :-)Paul

    Hi Peter, came across your site looking for the location of Bugaldie Public School. Just got in from a visit with my cousin who, with her sister and brothers were students there in the mid 1940's through to the early 1950's. Their father, Tom Enright after who Enright Rd (the fire trail) is named, owned "Carinya" towards Baradine. My grandfather - also Tom Enright - owned "Gleneve" at Baradine though it was sold to the Beveridges in the very early 1950's. I'm Sydney born and bred though my mother was born in Coonabarabran and grew up at Baradine. Since retirement have had the opportunity to visit old places that have a shed load of memorys. Grandmother was a Kerr off "Sunnyside" at Binnaway which I'm happy to say remains in the hands of her brother's descendants. Did you ever hear about Pincham's pub at Bugaldi? Small world thing but one of the Pincham girls (Grandmas now) is my wife's friend. Seems that the Pinchams bought the old pub, spent a pile on renovating it, forgot the insurance and it burned down without trading. From memory it was on the Bugaldie railway siding but I'll stand correction. Cheers and thanks for the photographs.

    I asked that question about contests and the reply indicated that participation had dwindled so they stopped offering.  Pity.  Perhaps the drop in participation is due to the inequity of the contests.  There has to be a better way of organizing them.  Perhaps having fewer categories would encourage greater participation.
