I was reading on jean's blog about a pick up she wanted to photogragh. Made me think of this news clipping I saved one Summer about the Denillquin Ute Muster.
A "ute" is an Australian invention: a woman (in the 30's) told her husband her ideal car was one for use on the farm that she could ride to church in on Sunday. Hence the utility vehicle.
I don't think she anticipated this!
