Family photos are few and far between and there is an unspoken agreement that no family photos are published.  Even brides of the seventies and eighties have given the thumbs down to post their photos even though the subjects now look nothing like those in the wedding photos.


 So instead my ancestors may come back to haunt me.  I only ever remember meeting Rita, Jim and Frank.  There is a photo of 18 month old Woolly with Grandfather Bill, he died a week later.  Auntie Edie (far right) spent much of her life in Perth.

Peeling paint.



In April 1975 I enjoyed a camping holiday

through Central Australia.

In Alice Springs we visited

Henk Guth’s (now deceased) art studio

where I purchased this painting

of Ormiston Gorge

for the princely sum of $150.






an area or stretch of land having a particular characteristic,
purpose, or use, or subject to particular restrictions.

I don’t know where Maggie

picked up this habit…

…however, I think she passed it on to Taji. 

Both were/are very protective of

their own personal zone.

It’s not Day 15 it’s only Day ONE of Victoria’s

COVID isolation from the rest of the country

all due to a spike in the number

of new cases each day.

Because of this spike, or potential second wave,

all state borders are closed to Victorians.

Ten postcodes in and around Melbourne

have been told to stay at home.

The only reasons to be outside one home

is for exercise, essential shopping,

school and work.

Seems a soft approach when some

are blatantly not listening.


Those WERE the days


Stay safe.    🙂


Hope you enjoyed.
