The Ute

Just had to do a story on Dig's ute after reading this wonderful blog. This is the farm work horse. It has everything in it except the kitchen sink, and that is only because he can't fit it in!! Note the lifting crane on the back which he uses to lift absolutely everything, Now this is his 'good' ute! It is very up-market, even has power steering. It is the last in a long line of Holdens, absolutely have to be Holden, farm utes. The other Holdens have all died and are now residing around his workshop for parts... Good job scrap steel is increasing in price!! He no longer does donuts, but his son does! Doesn't have two aerials, just a little trannie
(transistor radio) on the front dash which he religiously tunes in to the country hour at twelve thirty for the weather forecast, and at one for the stock market report! If you want to travel with Dig in the ute, you have to wait until he clears a spot for you to sit. It's a real problem if you want to go off farm and need to put the seat belt on as there are usually numerous spiders residing where it hangs!! And, you never want to drive on bumpy country roads in the ute as the shockers (shock absorbers) are a little slack to make his ride better!! But it's all fun....
