Awesome photos there Scott - Great stuff hey.
The repeat story reminds me of one of my own. On a holiday in 2004 to see my father I helped him remove a hive from a family home that had a large dog that had been stung before we arrived. The dog was just about out of control by this time.
Anyhow, on a seperate visit in 2006, I was helping dad out again, and when we pulled up at the house, I thought it looked familiar. Sure enough it was the same family, and when I asked about the dog, mum and dad got very upset as did the kids, and they told how he had passed away 6 months ago, and the family really missed him.
I told them that it was strange that on my visits of 1 week only, that it was strange to come to the house 2 years apart. They had a laugh about it and suggested that I dont visit my father anymore
