February 2017 Newsletter

Make Valentine's Day Great Again.

Hello and welcome to our February newsletter!

At risk of stating the obvious- what a hot month it's been. This is not fake news or even alternative facts. It's simply been plain hot our here on the plains. I take my broad-brimmed hat off to anyone who has been standing in sheep-pens and baking hot sheds. If it makes you feel better our air-con gave up the ghost and we welcomed many a customer into our makeshift spare-parts sauna. Hopefully the builders are back at work shortly and the new shop will start taking shape. We hope there'll be lots in store in this, our 65th year!

Among all the hard talk on hard parts this month, you'll see a theme running through of questionable Valentine's 'memes'. I will admit that if you don't want much TV you probably won't enjoy them quite as much as I did. Also at the bottom there's some car snaps I took from the Elvis festival. Susie and the girls have been away with their English family so I've been 'blatching it' in the 'blatchelor pad' once again.

Best wishes for February,

Congratulations to my mother and father, Nancye and Warren, on reaching their 50th Wedding Anniversary. Let me set the scene: Mum had just returned to Forbes from boarding school and was at the Town Hall, selling raffle tickets at the CWA Younger Set Beatles Ball. Dad and his Parkes 'Prairie Dog' mates had piled in a car to go over to the dance and see what the Forbes 'Swamp Rats' were up to. Mum sold Dad a raffle ticket and the rest was history. Three years later they were married in Forbes and two weeks after that, began a 12 year stint in Papua New Guinea, before returning in 1979 and joining A.A.Blatch.

Boats and Hose

Sowing season's just around the corner.

We're already well stocked with premium-grade, Australian-made air seeder hose. When it's time to replace your hose, just call Blatch's.

Pump Up The Jam

Let's talk push-in pneumatic fittings.

If you use the push-in style air line fittings to suit nylon air hose and tube, then we have a stack of the highest quality available. Sold singularly or in bulk packs. Available in nylon, steel, stainless steel or nickel covered brass.

National Lampoon's Blatch Vacation

On their way to Eastbourne they called in for tea with Her Majesty. Unfortunately she was unable to receive them. Something about protocol.
Wils thought living in the Tower of London would be a good idea. She obviously hasn't heard of the young Princes.
Beatrice was generally overcome by the whole adventure, the whole time.
