Brand new cricket ball

 

 

A late 50s early 60s Holden. 

This era saw much more shiny chrome work

than modern cars have.

 

 

This Holden Commodore is from the early 70s at a guess.   

Holden is/was the Australian arm of General Motors

and ceased manufacturing Australian designed

and built cars about 4-5 years ago

 

 

An old Chevrolet.

 

 

 

Another chev…perhaps.

 

 

Real shine on this 1956 Buick

 

My second car was also a Holden, LH Torana,

with a 2850 Motor similar to this one.

 

Morning sunshine…

…on Corio Bay.

Cee’s-FFChallenge-Birds

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

Just love pelicans coz their beaks

can hold more than their belly can.

Just in case you did not notice the first image.

There was a couple who were feeding the birds.

Regular bird feeders I would suggest

by the way said birds reacted.

I have been told  this is the female of

the Superb Fairy Wren pair.

Can’t remember where I captured these

buckets (aka pails)

*****

And I could not post a bucket related post

without adding a photo of Brandy

in his ‘Buckethead’ days.

He had an infected eye

and had to be kept in darkened

surroundings for six weeks.

Cee’s-FFChallenge-Hole-Or-Whole

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

When this elephant wandered past us our guide said,

There goes the whole of Africa.

Knowing our guide he would have

had a twinkle in his eye, as we did,

not knowing whether he had

said Hole or Whole

*****

However there was no discussion about spelling

we when arrived at Lochnagar Crater, some

21 Km from Villers Bretonneux.

A hole in the ground it was.

Created by detonating 27 tons of explosive

under the German army’s frontline.

The explosion created a crater

330 feet (100.5 metres) across

and 70 ft (21 metres) deep.

For comparison a Jumbo jet

measures 63 metres in length

with a wing span of 60 metres

and a height of 19.4 metres (63 ft 6 in)

meaning it would easily fit in the crater.

Eight kilometres, or miles, to come or go,

or the eighth post

*****

When the minute hand reaches number 8

the time is 40 minutes past the hour

or only 20 minutes until the next hour has passed.

*****

It may have only been campfire fare but we

ate well on our Botswana Safari.

*****

A wet Sunday afternoon in

a Murano Restaurant…

…where one-and-all ate well,

drank well, and became

merrier as the afternoon drew to a close
