To get down to melbourne by lunch time I have been driving down after work. On this occasion I got to Tarcutta before I needed to stop for the night at the Half Way Motor Inn. I had entertained sleeping in the car, but had not brought anything with me and the car was quite full of stuff. I was surprised to find the office still open at such a late hour. The friendly woman there was heading back to Orange the next day. It seems that she also has family there. I talked of the orchards my grandparents had along Anson road in what is now suburbia.
