Official Post


For our first official post as 
'Commissioners for all things Down Under'
 in Mayor Madi's new cabinet.

We'd like to report on our Australia Day. 
As it fell on SATURDAY this year, we started
our celebration at the river with our friends.
There were 11 dogs there today, and we ran, swam and played bitey face for 2 hours.
Then, of course it was home for that 4-letter word
 beginning with B. 

Hurry up...get the picture so we can get these stupid hats off!
 While the rest of the country celebrated with barbecues, beach activities, official ceremonies, parades, naturalisation ceremonies,
21-gun salutes, Air Force fly overs, thong throwing (sandals--not undies) contests, fireworks....etc.

We celebrated with snags (sausages).

 Then because it was hot here (37 C or 98.6 F) we spent most of the day snoozing in the air condtioning.

And now we're having a storm with RAIN! 
 And do we ever NEED it! (We're not near the floods)
So Happy 225th Birthday Australia!

  39. Happy Australia Day girls (sorry we're late). Glad you got some sausages but to us they looked like frankfurters (well that's what we call them in SA. Good luck with your new appointment as Commissioners for all things Down Under. Hey, mum is sending you an e mail so watch out for it ok? No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  40. You sure know how to celebrate! Sounds like you had a great day and after all that fun, a nap in air conditioning is just the perfect end to an exciting day.

    As I type this at 2:44am Monday (night shift) it's snowing with freezing rain forecast for later in the morning, hopefully I'll be home before that starts. Thinking of you basking in the heat!
