This picture says a thousand words – a pet Magpie!! Dad and I have always loved our birds and have always had a pet bird of some breed. Eastern Rosellas, Galah, Port Lincoln Parrot, Magpies and recently Rainbow Lorikeets, usually rescued.

Mr William (Bill) Grady (1934 – 2014)

Uncle BillIn loving memory of my dear Uncle Bill Grady.  He was a champion breeder and judge of Australian Game Poultry. He worked at Glory Vale and Mernot. He taught me everything he knew about poultry, parrots, Herefords, horses, sheep and working dogs, along with Lindsay and brother Keith Hyem. I have the fondest memories, that inspired me before and perhaps now he is gone, inspires me even more.  I painted what we both loved – anything rural. A true blue gentleman, who will always be sadly missed. P.S  Remember to whistle while you work. RIP
