Vale Head for Pat'rick © Vicki Ferrari by 


This is a tribute to Pat, very patient and beloved uncle, who passed away way too early in January 2006. He is much loved and will never be forgotten… from Gick…

It is a house on a property where I spent much time as a kid, at Fifield, New South Wales, Australia. Many memories here – from Fav’rit Unca Pat wandering around the farm, to singing (“I’m A Tiger”) with those old singles with my cousin Mandy, to being woke up with the glorious sounds of crowing roosters and (the one that sticks the most) letting go of the mixmaster bowl when it was my turn to hold it when Mandy and I were making a chocolate cake, to eat raw, not to cook! It went EVERYWHERE! Mandy and I still laugh about how much trouble we got into! (We weren’t laughing at the time, I can assure you… we were in panic mode! Not only had we done something we were meant to be doing but we had left physical evidence of it on the ceiling, in the cupboards and well, you can imagine… and it is hard to clean a ceiling or a wall when you aren’t that tall!) From memory, we could always run fast and from memory it wasn’t worth running either! I am glad that I took photographs at the time as the house has fallen down since! This is a scan of a print, taken many years ago when no-one had lived there for years.
