Who’s on First?


A popular stop for workers to get coffee in Bendigo and I’m sure they must get asked numerous times a day who makes the best coffee?

I stopped to post some letters, say G’day to the fellow leaning on his shovel πŸ™‚ and took a selfie of my hands courtesy of my side mirror πŸ™‚

Happy Fathers Day to fathers everywhere!

It’s always sad to see untended graves. The cemeteries in larger towns seem to be mown and looked after by local councilsΒ while smaller ones in outlying areas are forgotten. . .

On the Rocks


Hope this inspires some great stories and poems πŸ™‚

Submissions are always welcome but need to be in hard copy – send to PO Box 798, Heathcote 3523, Victoria, Australia.



I was intrigued to see reports on Sunrise this morning about a traveller who believes he saw the Loch Ness Monster recently.

Elijah and Eilidh passed by Loch Ness a couple of weeks ago but Nessie must have been hiding 😦

But . . . they did bring me back this knitting book and now I can knit my own Nessie πŸ™‚

Perhaps I’ll sit it by our dam and name it the Loch James Monster πŸ™‚

The Old Shed


What has it seen? Who has it seen? What’s inside?

A Taste of Scotland


Elijah and Eilidh brought back a box of delicious Scottish shortbread for Rod. So cute . . . so yummy!

The Scottie Dog shape brought back a wonderful memory for me. When I was a little girl I was given a child-size baking set which included a Scottie Dog biscuit cutter. I still have it among my treasures. I’ll have to dig it out and make some little biscuits πŸ™‚
