CLIVE AND DIANE HADDOW ON THE MOVE

TAMWORTH COUNTRY AND WESTERN CAPITOL


THE GOLDEN GUITAR

Well, we arrived in Tamworth on Sunday for a three month visit. I tell you folks…its going to be an interesting stay!!  There are some mighty interesting characters in this place! 

We have been pretty busy settling into the local lifestyle. On our first day here we  joined the Tamworth Golf Club. Of course Clive went and had a game the next day! We have also joined the Digger’s West Sports Club. They have a great deal on Tuesdays – Two Meals for the price of one!  Clive and I had a big hearty meal with a bottle of Wine all for the cost of $40.00!! How is THAT for great value?! We have had Austar installed in our housesit home in preparation for the WORLD CUP SOCCER! Yipppee!!! Go the Socceroos!!!  We have loads of firewood for our fire – so we should be OK to settle down in front of the TV through those VERY cold Winter nights! Everyone tells us the Winter Temperatures go below zero quite often here. Nice to know!

The main street has some beautiful old architecture – almost Art Deco in style. You can see its a really old town. We have found a lovely old Pub right in the main street called The Tudor. Its old, smelly and full of character. It reminds us both so much of England. To Clive’s delight they serve HUGE tender tasty T-Bone steaks cooked rare – just the way Clive loves them. Fortunately for me, they also serve fish!
