Caged Cockie


“Look, Mum, have you seen one of those before,” Pip laughed. Hmmm . . . just a thousand or two every day, flying over, sitting in the trees, destroying the trees and plants. Grrrr 😦  In fact, as I type this I can hear one screeching as it flies over the house!

I was thrilled years ago when an English friend returned from visiting her parents back home and showed me a photo of a squirrel. “Wow, I’d love to see one,” I told her. She said they were everywhere in the area where her parents lived in London and many people considered them a nuisance. Ohhhh 😦

I guess there’s lots of people who would say ‘wow’ if they saw all our Cockatoos. Just wish I could get them to take some home with them 🙂

Night Owl or Lark


These owls gave us the look, and I’m sure would have much preferred to sleep rather than have us gawking at them!

Many writers tell me they do their best work in the wee small hours, perhaps because most others are asleep then.

I’m mostly an early riser but sometimes I stay up very late. Are you a night owl or a lark?


Guinea Fowl


Guinea Fowl are known for their great bug-eating in the garden but they are very noisy. I’d love a couple but as much as I love animals it’s always a problem if we want to have a holiday 😦

Keep those PET stories and poem coming, especially if you have a Guinea Fowl tale 🙂

In Hiding


The Koalas stayed in hiding, even when the attendants came to refresh their supply of gum leaves.

Gumbuya Park


I drove down to Gumbuya Park yesterday and met up with Pip. I wonderful afternoon. That’s me . . . pretty as a peacock 🙂 lol

Have had more internet hiccups but all seems good again. More on Gumbuya Park soon…
