UN­WEL­COME STRANGER

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

Once, when Jerry was ex­cep­tion­ally weak, John got Jerry out of bed and into his wheel­chair to take him to the dial­y­sis treat­ment.

Re­porter Jon Bas­sett cap­tured this great shot of a sea­plane do­ing a test land­ing last week. Last Novem­ber, Catalina Air­lines com­menced a 12-month trial to land sea­planes on the Swan River.
