in Geelong at 13.25pm to

No. 1 Son and No. 2 Daughter-in-Law.

Chelsea came into the world at 42 weeks

weighing eight pounds and six ounces (3.9kg).

All are doing well!

ANZAC-Day-2022

ANZAC-Day-2022

 

Today, ANZAC Day 2022, in small towns

throughout Australia, New Zealand

and at many sites overseas…

…people of all ages will gather before sunrise

to attend Dawn Services and remember


Wreaths will be laid at local monuments

 

…to acknowledge the sacrifices made by those

who did, and did not, return from

the Great War and all subsequent conflicts

in which the Australian Military

has participated.

In the afternoon

Collingwood and Essendon football teams

will do battle in what has become one of

the highlights of the

Australian Football League calendar.

With COVID restrictions now lifted a maximum

of 100,024 fans will be allowed into the

Melbourne Cricket Ground

to watch the match which will commence

after ANZAC Day ceremonies

are completed with all in attendance

observing a minute’s silence.

Lest We Forget

Sunday-Stills22-0418-Colour-Quartz

quartz

a hard mineral consisting of silica,
found widely in igneous and metamorphic rocks
and typically occurring as colourless
or white hexagonal prisms.

Although I cannot see any green (colour vision loss)

in this Amythest now, which may be due

to using an on-camera flash for the photo,

I thought I could when I purchased it for MGW

for our 35th wedding anniversary a month or so ago. 

The stone is an Amythest (our birthstone)

which, according to Google, is

a member of the quartz family.

Wonderment was an ideal adjective to describe

our Granddaughter’s reaction to some special

treats on her first birthday.

 Just lucky mum was nearby to

save her hand from the flame.

we are hopeful that we may

get away in 2022.
