  12. Happy memories of you Jim when I worked in the Korumburra milk factory laboratory.
    You would bring a milk sample from your tanker up for bacteria testing along with your other driver colleagues. There was a lot of laughter and banter which made a happy workplace.

  20. So sad to hear of your passing Jim, had planned trips up your way but covid stopped that. 20 years straight duck hunting at Warrawidgee is so fondly remembered. So many stories of trucking and hunting. You are a legend.
