I had a birthday over two weeks ago and finally we got together with friends to celebrate. Two cards the same! Are people trying to tell me something?
A gift from Sister.
A gift from a friend. Take a close look. The monkeys are way cool.
Our sewing basket is full of all sorts of needles, threads and reels, and of course those needle threading things, essential for moi who may occasionally have to resew a button but then theatrically becomes hysterically incompetent and R does it for me.
The age of these pins could probably be dated by the Coles price sticker. 1980s, I should think.
A lovely piece of work at the Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce. A friend works there and she has invited us to a Saturday afternoon party in a week's time. It is her last hurrah before her frail parents return from living the dream on Queensland's Gold Coast in Australia's tallest residential apartment building. They are old and need the care of their daughter. The paradise of God's Waiting Room did not turn out to be as practical or as cheap as they thought. Our friend has already adapted her stylish two storey house to accommodate them. She is heavily in debt, but when her parents die, she will be ok, and I guess her parents will pay board.
The dog across the road doesn't spend too much time alone but when it is left at home, it has a great time playing with whatever is suspended on the end of a rope.
Rather stupidly, I always wave to this dog when I see it. It's a very nice looking dog. The dog always looks up at me with a benign interest.
R exaggerates that our building is becoming like a slum. The dog above does make a mess. I've never seen it out being walked. Pretty ghastly to look down upon and doesn't happen too often. When we look after Dog Jack, he can cope with being taken out twice a day and never make a mess inside.
A new occupant has just moved in on our level. Classy look of a roll of stolen toilet paper. Now fortunately replaced by a container of many make up brushes and various cosmetics.
Do I take the photo through glass or open the door and probably alarm the bird and miss the photo altogether? I did the former.
This thing is back. It can move around at quite a speed. Send it back to River in Adelaide, please.
Unusual evening light.
The cockatoo was sitting on a balcony railing and then flew down to join the raven. The cocky made a non contact lunge at the raven but the raven was not worried and just moved away a bit. Young birds trying it on, I think. The cocky didn't hang around and dropped down the side of the building.
House fire in Richmond. I believe the unoccupied timber house was destroyed.
