“Where d’ya get it?”

“Oh, friend of a friend of a friend of mine.” Anna, laconic as ever, was ambiguous.

“It’s a bloody Lear Jet. Shall we?”

“Yup”.

Up we flew. The cattle station spread out below like a great red carpet. Far below I saw the homestead, tin roof glinting.

“Jeez, Anna. 2 helicopters not enough, now you need a plane too?”

“Well”, said Anna, “To get from one end of the property to the other was taking too long by car.”
