"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."
Mathilde Blind, April Rain

One of my good mates in Australia is Lyle, the Goomburra Trader.
In 2011 Lyle took Bill and I as offsiders to help him on a farm in Boonah, QLD. The three of us had good fun together and this let me discover Lyle’s business, what he is doing for a living. It was tough dirty work for a female BUT BUT BUT Lyle provided excellent accommodation and food with much needed beers after work. WOW – what good fun.
It was his birthday recently 23 Nov. so Bill and I went to visit him with a chocolate cake at his shed, the Nobby Shed. I asked Bill and Lyle if they would agree to prepare this postcard with me and here you are guys: the three of us did a recording and took a few photos of the Goomburra Trader’s shed. With only this material, your challenge is to answer the following questions.
What is Lyle’s business? What does he do for a living?
Note: The recording might sound tough to some of you, but don’t be afraid to write down the words you can catch and/or ask questions to get some help from me or the other players.
