      Curt was a very caring, sensitive person with a great sense of humour. He did funny things like painting one of his sister's cats, cutting the cat's whiskers off to upset her, used to ask his sister to fetch apples from the tree on the hill at the farm and always played tricks. He threatened to shear his niece when he was shearing sheep and used to pretend to give people presents but it was a mouse or beetle or something awful.
      He always tried to see good in people. He spent time with his sister at Seaton, when a barley husk got caught in his eye one year while harvesting. It caused lots of trouble and required many episodes of treatment and would heal and then flare up again for many years.
      He was a freemason lodge member and a member of the Church of Christ, Balaklava from Sunday School onwards. He went to Sydney for the opening of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. His normal greeting was "How are you brother?"
      They used to shop in Bordertown on Saturday mornings. When they paid cash for the groceries they were often given a large bag of sweets (one or two pounds). When they bought a dozen buns they got an extra on free (a baker's dozen). They ate lunch there and stayed in winter to see the football match.
