THE YAAN: There’s a full moon about at the moment. A much acclaimed full moon. It came up big and yellow and then settled over the mouth of the Bellinger River like a big white star. The tide was high and the ocean roaring. Some people said it was very cold. Some said it was mild. One family was fishing down near the Lido. They didn’t appear to be cold. In the annex of the first row of caravans in the caravan park, one man was watching television with his back to the water and the moon.

Two streets back from the water the Urunga Bowling Club has been completed. In 2009, floodwaters rushed through it. They rushed through most of the middle of the town, including the Ambuland and Fire Stations. Somehow the Bowling Club managed to claim enough insurance to build the flash new Club. It even has a café and a children’s playground. Urunga is known as the Little Town that Time Forgot. It seems with the New Bowling Club that time has briefly remembered us. It had all kind of modern equipment. A machine that recognised driving licences and other 21st Century contrivances.

It also has a cafe . Chinese Restaurants have a monopoly on most of the small clubs along this stretch of coast and it was nice to have the option of a caramelised onion and camembert cheese tart for $7.

The moon is up high now. It will shine through the passionfruit vine tonight.

THE YAAN : Three cats live here on the property. They go by the names of William, Spider and Caramel. Until recent weeks, a fourth one lived wild in the big shed but he was found dead in there a little while ago. Could have been a snake that did him in.  Cats are a contentious matter in the Bush due to their destruction of small native creatures. Some People love the Cats. Some Hate them.

William is the old fellow with the collar on. He appears to be demented and lives in an alternative reality. William sees and hears things that noone else does and urinates indoors if given even a slight chance to do so.

Spider is small and young. She appears to be what is called a CANE CAT. Not very affectionate and extremely independent.

Caramel is the youngest and is bigger and more powerful and far  more inclined to climb on the roof of the Cottage and pursue the bird life. The Lorikeets and Kookaburras are teaching him a lesson or two.

As for the Chooks, the cats don’t challenge them AT ALL. The chooks strut about pecking at gardens and feet and cats if the need arises. The Chooks destroy the sunflower seeds. Just munch right into them. Nothing left at all.

Some people hate cats enough to kill them because the cats kill little animals.  Doesn’t seem a sane solution. Hatred and rage at that level don’t usually serve good purposes. Hatred and rage at that level probably NEVER serve a good purpose.
