Five years ago we were readying ourselves

for our trip to Botswana.

To help with our budgeting

we agreed to ‘rustic’ accommodation.

Little did we know that our first night would

be spent in a hut which had a 12 inch gap

between the roof and walls.

The following night, while walls and roof met,

however the triangle above the front and back walls

was only filled in with chicken wire.

Our comfort, again was controlled by

chilly winds blowing in, through, or out. 😊

From there on we were in tents.

Warm and comfortable.

Upon reaching Chobe Resort…

…spent a few nights…

…in a level of comfort we…

…had not previously experienced

during this trip.

And again the sun was shining on

Two smiling collages.

Above is a repose and is mainly family photos.

Human body language is interesting, isn’t it.

Any mammal I can think of which

bares its teeth in this manner is to be avoided.

Humans, on the other hand, think

this is a sign of friendship.



Definite smiles, or facial expressions

from our European holiday.

Also realised that it was difficult

to find smiling male faces.

As one who can remember the early seventies.

I do remember a Melbourne Department Store logo

telling us in no uncertain manner that everything

was ‘Yelping Yellow‘ this year.

And that was the only time I saw

any quantity of yellow that year.

However Monaco’s Street Art

had me singing again.

MGW tells me these yellow doors are part of

Alice in Wonderland‘ or ‘Narnia’. 

I shall take her word for it.


Yellow from the garden.

Some early signs of spring are the

winter blooming acacia trees, and…

…the daffodils which bloom in August.




Spring is definitely here when the paddocks

turn yellow with canola blooms.

A 2019 sight that is a long way off.

Yellow is a nice bright, happy colour

to have around as we head into the depths of winter.

I  should have written a long wet winter.

The days may be cooler, however we have only measured

two and a half inches up until April 30 this year.

Should be closer to 6 inches.

Luckily we had a little over an inch on May 2 and 3.

Old and new forms of transport.



A newer wheel…

and the remnants of an older wheel.

Although built during the seventies,

Melbourne’s West Gate Bridge

is newer than…


…than the remnants of

the Misery Creek bridge.
