So have found Wend, and am now tucked in comfy chair with laptop and dongle, waiting for closing time. I had no reason to mention computer dongle then, except I always find utter glee in the word dongle.
Next is a trip to Woolies (getting milk), and then the saleyards (meeting with person about sales tomorrow, or something, I just follow around now...) and then home to Wend's place. Where, I have been assured that we can park the X-trail in such a way as to make sure that cows do not lick the windows.
But I WANT cows to lick the windows. The X-trail needs cow-lick cred, also they may have better luck with 450km worth of stuck on bugs than the windscreen wipers.
Am pretty sure will be off radar, phone and internet coverage wise, in very near future. I know. Deep breaths.
