I have posted this escape more than once, it fits so nicely.

 Maggie dispatched this Dachshund intruder from our backyard.

Both were happy to see the fence.

Dachshund because it could escape.

Maggie because she escaped any further chasing.

Her job completed, shed trotted back

to the backdoor very satisfied with herself.

However, there was no escape for these husky puppies…


…was once MGW  and another female traveller

had them in their grasp.

This team of huskies had just pulled

a four wheel motor bike around a track…

for the tourist watching from the paddler wheeler,

The Discovery II.


They could’t get into the river quick

enough to cool down.

While I don’t h ave any photos of them shaking dry,

I have yet to see any working dogs not give themselves

a very hearty shake to dry off after a swim on a hot day.

Stats = Statistics

My first thought was to find something farm related.

We lived by lambing percentages,

amount of wool produced per sheep and so on.


Then the WordPress supplied stats

came to mind…as they do every day.

Whether monthly or yearly statistics

it is always nice to see them rise.

And between late March and late September

there is only one set  of stats

which matter to followers of

Australian Rules Football.And that as is the League Ladder.

I support Collingwood which after two

unexpected losses is now third.

Another 8 weeks and the finals begin.

The top 8 play each other to determine

which team wins the Premiership Cup for 2019.

1.  a wall or partition designed to inhibit or prevent the spread of fire.
2.  protect (a network or system) from unauthorized access with a firewall.

When I saw ‘firewall’ I thought of the second definition.

And I don’t know of any other way of

‘seeing’ the firewall in one’s computer.

For the first definition, I believe there is a thickness

of anti inflammable material between

the motor and cabin of all vehicles,

also known as a firewall.

showing or feeling no interest, enthusiasm, or concern.

I think it would be fair to describe Taji as

apathetic about exercise.

Her idea of a good work out is sitting

under the trampoline watching Candi

blow off steam with as many games of fetch

as she can wangle out of us each day.

a transparent tank of water in which live fish and other water creatures and plants are kept.
a building containing tanks of live fish of different species.

My images are not exactly aquarium images…

 …but they all show fish…


…in water.

Looking through a glass bottom boat on

the Great Barrier Reef,

near Cairns in Queensland

is probably the closest I have to an aquarium shot.
