The first day of summer here in Oz.
We had a nice drop of rain last night.
The ground and plants were so thirsty that there weren't any puddles this morning.
We still did 'road work' for our Early Morning walk.

Wish we could say that it was a wonderful morning,
but our computer has been having problems.
A diagnostic test stated that we had a few 'fails'
on the modem and line.
That meant a dreaded call to India.
SHE was stressed as SHE had to unplug the modem and plug it into
the landline socket in another room.
SHE couldn't understand the technician and the technician,
didn't seem to understand old technology.
A Very frustrating hour with no result--but loads of dust motes discovered behind furniture have been taken care of.
We got our First Christmas Card.
We got it last week, but our computer couldn't find the
yellow cartridge, so wouldn't print.
The yellow was replaced, but the computer still said it couldn't be found. After getting the computer to notice that there was yellow,
the printer kept putting up notices saying there was No paper--when there was.
The good bit was SHE took us to the Cricket grounds to run around so SHE could stop fuming!
By the time we returned, SHE'd calmed down and so had the computer.
We got to print off our card!
PS. Those of you on the Christmas card exchange list will notice that we have asked
for e-mail cards. Australia Post is
charging $2.55 per card to go overseas, so we decided to use e-mail this year. If you send us a card like Madi's, we'll be able to print it off.
