River's Sunday Selections are as reliably posted each Sunday as we are all so excited by the prospect of voting for our favourite candidates in the forthcoming Federal Election.
Dog Jack is staying with us for a couple or weeks. Two of us were in the car, so both seats were equally warm. Why do they always chose the driver's seat?
Jack says no to Aldi's Julius Gold, but yes to My Dog. He wouldn't eat for the first couple of days, which has never been a problem before. We changed to My Dog and he was fine then, perhaps because it had vegetables in it and he loves broccoli and cauliflower. Thoughts of vet bills and a twisted bowel did pass through my head. Or maybe he was fretting for his mummy.
Keeping with the animal theme, I have never seen a cat with these markings before. Wonder what it would look like as a stole.
A friend has budgies and they have been making little budgies that become big budgies. Getting a bit crowded.
The same friend has green thumbs and fingers too. He seems to be able to force things to grow quickly, but for mine I would rather see daphne grow more slowly and be more bushy.
We took Jack for a walk to his old stomping ground, Alma Park. The park is bisected by the Sandringham train line. It looks like there has been some recent track repairs.
It is a park to walk through on the way to somewhere and for dogs. You could not call it a beautiful park but it does have some grand old trees.
Window etching is the curse of the 21st century. To the stocks, I say.
A Magnolia Soulangeana beside St Francis' Church in the Elizabeth Street. I call it the slanger magnolia.
I suppose some people would not know what this is. It is new steamer as our old one broke. It folds out and sits in a saucepan of boiling water and you put whatever, usually vegetables for us, on the blades. This would be the fourth one we have had in about thirty years. The centre handle usually fails, probably from dishwasheritis.
