Good morning! I am very happy to tell you that hubby is well and almost back to normal. With a few minor changes here and there to his lifestyle, he should remain in good health for a long period of time. :)
I have a small selection of photos to share with you today. Unfortunately I didn't have time to take all the photos I wanted to, but there is always next visit back home.
This is Jess, my brother's Kelpie sheepdog. Her life is sheep driven and she loves to work.
This is Bonnie, an older sheepdog who is a big softy and loves cuddles. Check out how long Jess's tongue is in the background.
This is Humphrey who is 13 years old, enjoying the sunshine on the front veranda. He was displaying his tummy to me as an invitation for a belly rub. Isn't he cute? He is a small cat with a tummy that looks like a barrel and when he trots around he looks so funny. Every night he goes for a walk with Mum when she is shutting up the chooks and feeding Eddie.
Eddie the pet emu was quite affectionate this visit. He is about 40 years old.
He has very scaly legs and feet which we attribute to his age.
Having a sit down.
There were lots of lovely little lambs gambolling around but I couldn't get to close enough for a good photo.
This is Ben, my nephew who is 6'3". He is in a band and I was planning to see a gig they were doing in a local country town on Saturday night. Unfortunately I missed that one but perhaps I'll get lucky next visit.
There are always old bits and pieces lying around farm yards and I was taken with this old coil of rusty wire and the colour contrast with the blue sky.
This is on an old harvester. I just couldn't resist taking a photo of that lovely word, sunshine.
These are baby paddy melons and definitely not suitable to eat. They are considered a weed and can be toxic to sheep if they eat too many. I took the photo for the pretty yellow/green colour contrasting against the dirt.
Mum's ivy leaf pelagonium on the front veranda. Isn't the colour spectacular?
I also have a lovely photo of Mum operating the twin tub washing machine in the wash house but I know she wouldn't want me to show it, so I won't. You're safe Mum!! :)
I hope you've enjoyed this little taste of my visit to Western Australia.
Bye for now,
