Why are there containers in the City Square?
It seems to be an architecture exhibition. This is a school in the outer suburb of Dallas. I wonder if kids like it?
Sooner or later this construction opposite the Highrise must stop going up. It is higher still now and they are running out of crane height.
The beginning of the pea and ham soup a couple of weeks ago. I forgot to take any more photos. It was delicious. Half is in the freezer for another meal.
R has nagged me about buying new bedding for a while and I have resisted. He has three sets for his bed. I only have one, so when it washed, it is back on the bed the same day. As soon as I saw it, I liked this and it was incredibly cheap at a 'seconds' type place. It is my third set with Chinese writing. There is a slight Asian theme in my bedroom. Instead of showing it all nicely made, this is what it looked like after I arose in the morning. The not quite black fitted sheet is going to be replaced soon.Not sure which photo to use, so here are both.
Ah, here is why it was so cheap, as I noticed a day or two later. It has pulled thread.
New apartment building near our local shops in Chatham Street, Prahran.
Odd yellow bit at the end.
This car turned heads in Chapel Street, mainly because it was so noisy. I was hoping for an explosive backfire, but I was left disappointed.
Little Jo chose these flowers. Obviously they are dyed or something. Two weeks later, they are still going.
An HT or HK Holden Kingswod, made by General Motors Holden in around 1968. Good and quite original condition.
Weird. The plastic container came out of the dishwasher in a normal manner, but what happened to the lid? It had completely distorted and the plastic became transparent. Never happened before.
The PVR remote on your right started to fail with buttons starting to require multiple pressings for anything to happen and the on/off stopped working ages ago. We looked at buying a universal remote, but decided to buy the branded replacement. It is a much better remote to use. $66 including postage from Topfield.
Earlier in the morning a Currawong stopped by on our balcony but I was too slow with the camera. I had never seen one close up before. Later an Australian magpie stopped by too and I took this through the tinted glass. The are alert birds, so had I have opened the door, it would have been off. They are very different to European magpies and their lovely burbling call is always welcome to hear after returning home from overseas travel.
I could see some gunk down the drain of the smaller sink bowl. I unscrewed the cover thingy and it was easily cleaned away. I thought to have a look at the main bowl drain too and oh, what a sludge of disgusting fat and other matter was underneath. Whenever something nasty like this is discovered, one of us will call the other 'a dirty housewife'. All sparkling now.
The old framed by the new in Bridge Road, Richmond.
Richmond City Hall. Why are Richmond's and St Kilda's town halls called City Halls. We don't say City Hall. They are always Town Halls.
Still in Bridge Road, to your left of centre, look what has been done to two of the windows! It looks like aluminium. Ghastly.
A train seat with many of our railway stations listed on the seat. Nice.
