NOTHING lightens Harry Galea's day like a cracker yarn.
A bushman from the mountain country above Killarney, he's invariably ready to share a few of his own too.
Local folklore, like the yarn explaining how his cattle property in the Legume district came to be known as Vinegar Hill.
"Story has it, an old bullock team was passing through my place way back in the day, and they lost their only bottle of vinegar there on my hill," he laughed.
"On the next mountain they lost their tuckerbox, so it became Tuckerbox Hill.
"But needless to say you, don't need a local geography lesson to know they never lost the rum.
"They were more careful with those sorts of essentials."
When the Bush Tele caught up with Mr Galea, he was keeping a keen eye on the weather and hoping for a few days of sunshine.
"We've had a lot of rain this year. That last lot took out a bit of fencing. We have flood gates across the creeks. They survived okay.
"As for the fencing, the way this weather is going, we wouldn't even contemplate repairing fences until the end of March."
