Been very busy with car pick up Wednesday, Mother Day Thursday, shopping Friday, out Friday night for dinner. Should be a quieter (and wet weekend) with only a trip to Aldi to buy rashies on special on Saturday. Of course there has been a lot of car and associated phone tech time taken.
A little Motherism from Thursday: I was so cold this last winter I don't think I will complain about the heat at all this year. It's so nice being warm. Arrive at her home to pick up some things, Andrew, can you turn the cooling on. Arrive back at ABI's Brother where she lives, Andrew, can you turn the cooling on and your brother has it set too warm. Turn it lower please.
So not much time to post, but I don't think I showed you these photos.
Driving from here to the tv towers on Mount Dandenong is 50 km, say 31 miles. It's a fairly direct route with only some twisting and turning as you climb the mountain and I would estimate that to be less than 5 km extra, so say Mount Dandenong tv towers are 45 km away. I was pretty impressed by the zoom on my new camera.
Unrelated, retired blogger Ann O'Dyne but fervent Twitterer identified the first distant tower to go up at Box Hill. There is now a forest of them growing. The closer tower just seemed to appear one day. Of course that can't happen but maybe it was finished and exposed when we were overseas. I am not sure where it is. I can identify the water storage tower in Surrey Hills. Perhaps the highrise building is in Burwood and part of Deakin University.
