the theme a little, however…

had to enter and exit via

gates and doorways

an entrance to Ypres

in Belgium…

Gog and Magog sound their alarm every hour

in Melbourne’s Royal Arcade


Although I have been to London several times

I have yet to remember hearing Big Ben.

   Maybe that is due to traffic noise

at ground level.

The Horned Dungbeetle can pull up to 1141 times

its own body weight which is the equivalent of

an average man lifting two fully-laden

18-wheeler trucks.


Baby Elephant is the one that gets me smiling.

It was definitely telling us where to go

with its newfound trunk control.


Our resident New Holland Honeyeater mum (I think) was

giving me a right telling off when I captured this image.

Since then, and more likely,

I think she may have been talking

to wayward offspring.

This little one is our adored granddaughter.

She only has around nine weeks before

she will have to share the limelight with a sibling.

Another 8 weeks thereafter she will

have a cousin…all being well in both camps.

*break free from confinement or control.
*a form of a temporary distraction from
reality or routine.

This morning it was foggy when I felt Candi off

for her morning run…which translates to the rest of the day,

providing she behaved herself.

She was sitting quietly at the kennel door

while I made myself a cup of coffee.

Good Girl thought I.

Not So!

She waited until I was distracted and

again made good her escape.

I’m not sure where she goes, however, if

I cannot see her she must be up to mischief

After several whistles, she turned up with

a very innocent look on her face.

add (a component or accessory) to something
that did not have it when manufactured.

In the last fifty years, many movie theatres,

including our local cinema,

have had some sort of retrofit.

Whether it was seating, lights, screen or projector,

all retrofits have had a beneficial effect

on patrons, movie-going experience.

In 2019 we heard of the Sun Theatre

in Yarraville (Melbourne), and paid a visit.

Opened in 1938  the original 1050 seat auditorium

was retrofitted nearly 30 years ago

into 4 smaller theatres

with another 4 being added at later dates.

If you are ever visiting Melbourne

why not take a 15-minute train ride to

Yarraville from Southern Cross Station.

The Sun Theatre is about a two-minute walk

from Yarraville Station and will be the first thing

you see as you step off the train.
