It's Halloween.....

morning here.

Some uncooperative dogs had to have stickers instead of costumes....just sayin'.

Not that Halloween is celebrated much in Australia.  
It IS catching on.

We always  put out a plastic pumpkin to show that we have treats.

And the local scouts give out maps of houses that participate.

We were going to put our house on the map, but after watching about 500 kids go to the house across the street, we decided just to take the kids who'll come to the door!

However, as it's Spring, usually quite warm, and light outside, it loses some of the magic that SHE remembers as a child in Virginia.


Remember to be careful  when you open your door
 to strangers. 

You may be in for a horrifying surprise!

VACULA strikes again.

December 2010

We need rain.

But not as much as we got that year.

Bella and Daisy inspect the rising water.

Monday Mischief....

Big Ted was a Very Naughty Bear!

Look what I found!

 Just left by the river.
 But SHE chased me away from it.

Then Bella found a whole pile of them.
Maybe they'll still be there next time.

(Note:  These are feral carp.  The fishermen leave them out to die when caught.
Very annoying to dog owners!  The dogs find them irresistible to eat and roll on when rotten.)

River sights....

Some of the sights along our river track.

A couple of the many cockatoos feeding on thistles.

The farmer next door collecting hay bales.

Galahs enjoying the thistles.

A local artist , we see him some mornings.

An abandoned rugby football.....Touch.

A small pup doing real no-feet-touching swimming.

I WON!!!!

Yes, I Dui-man, finally won!

Three times last week I upended the pot of daisies
 to chew the container.

SHE re-potted them in a larger pot!

And I got the little pot to chew.

Oh, and because I like playing in the garden bed,
this is HER garden this year.
