Beautiful way to start the day

(viewed 740 times)
7am this morning. I look out the back door into my yard and there sits
peacefully, my wallaby having breakfast of grass and seed that I left
out for the birds- not that the wallaby knew or cared- its just food. I
feel at peace with the world.

Winter Magic 3

The Drummers were amazing- they had about 8 huge drums that they were
belting the daylights out of as they pushed the bamboo frame holding them UP
the street. The street is at about a 45 degree incline!
The Red Hat ladies are a bit of good fun.
Not sure of the significance of the tall papier mache lady. The Town Crier
(chap in hat) is ceremonial only.

felting tool

(viewed 632 times)
OK. So I said I wouldn't get time but last night I played with a lethal
new toy- a felting tool with 5 of the sharpest needles in it to felt
wool. Not satisfied with that I then had to add some pizzazz with some
sequins and beads- now it's a brooch. A bit daggy but it's me!**********************************************************************

No respect for others...

(viewed 534 times)
I have just received a note from our local police about a sportsman's medal that was stolen and was reported on the national news this week. Turns out it was stolen from my street probably by some teenagers. Stuff like that doesn't happen here and it only takes one stupid event like this to make non-locals think its like the wild west up here instead of the quiet place that it is. Most of the crime here is perpetrated by blow-ins who have no respect for others.
